The term Pit Bull seems to apply to a broad range of dogs. There are many different breeds that fall into this category of dog. Some of these breeds include the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, the Staffordshire Terrier and the Japanese Tosa to name a few. All of these dogs have similar body types and come from bulldogs and terriers that were bred in England.
These dogs were bred to have very strong jaws in order to bite bulls and control them; and, they were also bred to be intelligent and tough. Since these dogs were bred to be aggressive they were subsequently used as fighting dogs. The sport was very popular and the dogs were bred to be more and more aggressive. The sport of dog fighting has been outlawed in most countries and is considered cruel.
Pit bulls have been bred to come in a variety of colors including black, white, red nosed and blue pit bull puppies can be found. The Blue Pit Bull puppies are considered blue due to the shade of their coat, which has a blue hue to it. Often the more unusual the color the more the puppy will cost.
What They Are Like
Pit Bull dogs have a reputation for being quick tempered and fast to respond to a perceived threat. This can be a problem when there are children around that have a tendency to pet animals hard and try and sit on them. No animal likes to be treated roughly and their natural response is to protect themselves.
Blue Pit Bull puppies have these same tendencies, and this should be a consideration when looking at the breed. Unfortunately, the breed has gotten a bad reputation, so these types of dogs, including Blue Pit Bull puppies, are outlawed in some areas.
If a Blue Pit Bull puppy is the pet that you desire make sure to use a reputable breeder. Breeders can help ensure that certain traits are more likely to occur in a puppy. A good Pit Bull breeder will be concerned with making sure that their pups are bred with traits that are acceptable.
A good breeder will make sure that the Blue Pit Bull puppies are socialized and loved, so that they grow up with good human interaction skills. Find a reputable dealer through the American Kennel Association or by talking with friends. Pit Bulls can make good companions, just be careful of where they are bred.
