    All this stuff is why I would only compete in working competitions...pulling...agility...ect. The politics and turned up noses (of any and all colors) turns me off.

    There are more nose colours than just red, black, and blue! I think you SHOULD post a picture... I'm a dog nose-fanatic, so I could probably give you a really fancy colour term for your dog's nose, that I may or may not have made up! lol!

    Lots of rescues call any Pit Bull that walks through their doors "AmStaffs" because they think it'll help the dog get adopted quicker. Lots of these dogs have red noses, and I'd bet money that they aren't actually down from AKC registered parents.

    You'd be hard-pressed to find an AKC-registered AmStaff with a red nose, but the genetics are there, still. AKC folk totally frown upon the red nose. "Legend" has it that red noses were so solidly associated with pit dogs, that they decided to exclude the color from the AKC standard to help differentiate the two.

    Btw, even though the standard says nose definitely black, AKC people have cut themselves some leeway and blue noses compete and win regularly. The argument is that that line of the standard was just meant to keep red noses out and didn't mean to exclude the blues. :no2: (You'd be suprised how such a simple standard gets dissected and argued about and interpreted then reinterpreted over and over and over :D I have a blue, AKC-ptd AmStaff so you won't hear me arguing for their exclusion :yuck:)
