If you are confused about all the names you see associated with the American Pit Bull Terrier, the following article will help answer your questions and also clear up some common misconceptions. First of all, there is only one breed of dog that can be called “Pit Bull” and that is the “American Pit Bull Terrier”.

The APBT is the only breed with the words, “PitBull” in its name, therefore when someone refers to a “Pit Bull” with capital letters, they are talking about a purebred American Pit Bull Terrier. What happened is that the media and people who have no idea what a real APBT looks like started attaching generic names to dogs that have a similar appearance.

❥ The most common dogs called “pit bulls” are: ❥

  • The American Staffordshire Terrier (a close cousin or some think of the same breed as the APBT)
  • The Staffordshire Bull Terrier (also known as the English Staffordshire Bull Terrier)
  • The American bulldog
  • The Dogo Argentino
  • The bull terrier
  • The scenario dam
  • The American Pit Bull Terrier
  • or any mixture of the previous races.

How this nose colour craze started I’m not sure. However, I have an idea about what caused it. There are many types of American Pit Bull Terrier. You have show dogs, working dogs, and various types of lines. One of the most famous line types is the Colby line. You also have race types. More on this in a later article. At this point, we will stick to a basic understanding of the two.

Breed types – A breed of breed-like dog. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a medium-sized, well-built, and muscular dog, ranging from 35 to 65 pounds in weight. This is a breed type.

Linetypes – Linetypes are the result of specific breeding. Breed type effects programs. Going back to Colby’s example, after 100 years of playing online, they have produced a different look. Black brindle with white flames or completely whiteheads. They also have a fawn and fawn/white type of dog that they produce.

Sorrell dogs are another example of a line type. Sorrell’s dogs are usually flattering without other colourants and with a black muzzle and nose. These dogs have a very “normal” appearance, but the years of breeding have resulted in a different looking dog and after you’ve been around for a while, you can tell a Sorrell from a Colby just by looking at them.

Now we come to the meat of the matter. Where do these red and blue noses come from?

I suspect that Old Family Red Nose dogs outside of Ireland started this trend. People started calling them “Family Old Reds” and “Red Noses” because they had a distinctive red coat with a red nose with golden eyes. I’ve never seen a real Old Family red nose, but I’m sure from the descriptions they were gorgeous dogs.

❥ So people started calling them because of the colour of the nose and some even think that they are of different races. ❥

This is crazy if you ask me.

I get questions from people saying, “I have a red/red nose, what breed is it?” It’s a red/red nose, American Pit Bull Terrier. The same goes for any APBT with a coloured nose, coat or whatever. They are of the same race that only has different characteristics.

❥ In conclusion ❥

There is only one Pit Bull and that is the American Pit Bull Terrier.

If they have a red nose, blue nose, blue coat, red coat, brindle coat, cream coat, beige with white patches, or a black mask, it doesn’t matter at all. They are still 100% American Pit Bull Terriers (unless mixed breeds are known).

So the next time someone starts talking about their different breed of APBT called “red nose” you will know that they have no idea what they are talking about and simply have an American Pit Bull Terrier with a red nose.
