Can you get a Blue Pit that is 100% APBT?

Okay I think I got the whole Razors Edge American Bully thing for the most part. What I am wondering is, if I want to get a blue pit does it have to have Razors Edge in it? I love the blue color but only want a full APBT. I dont want an American Bully. I know there is some other bloodlines I see usually mixed with RE like Gotti or Greyline etc and was wondering if those are also American Bully? It is some what confusing. I would like to get another Pit, I want a beefy one with a larger head but dont want anything but full pit. So what bloodlines would be good for me then? Thanks

No, if it's blue it doesn't mean it is razors edge. There are blue amstaffs. I really don't see too many blue APBT'S but they do exist. Too many people are breeding for color and that's it. Gotti is Ambully, as is greyline. Why do you want APBT? Do you plan on hunting, showing, weightpulling those would be great reasons to own APBT? Or do you just want a good companion? The Bullies are meant to be more of a companion and not as much a working dog although many people work them. Plus APBT'S are not supposed to be beefy with a big head. If thats what you want i'd suggest getting a amstaff, as they are generally more bulky than APBT. They were once the same breed as APBT but bred over time for different reasons became a seperate breed. Pit's are not a breed, just a description. Ambullies, Amstaffs, APBT's, Bull Terriers, are all considered "Pit Bulls" But not all are APBT'S

What you are describing is an AmBully or AmStaff, not an APBT, so the answer to your question is NO. Why don't you look at one of those two breeds? It sounds like that is what you really want.

Yeah I was thinking about getting into weight pulling actually. I will have to find a pic of what I want and post it. I will do that, thanks

Yes you could get a blue colored American Pit Bull Terrier that is pure... Although there arent to many that I have seen.. But I have seen some from legit breeders.

With different weight divisions...you don't have to have a huge bulky dog to compete.

The last 2 pulls down this way had 55 lb weight limit caps. No dogs over that weight were allowed to compete. Made a few owners with paper-hung dogs extremely pissed off. :lol:

i have seen 1 blue dog that was a true APBT in my life so they are out there its just hard to sift through all these fake ass blue dogs people are pumping out

like someone pointed out earlier....."I want a beefy one with a larger head but dont want anything but full pit."....doesnt really work, thats like saying you want a pair of leather blue jeans (you either get leather pants or denim pants, cant be both.) American Pitbull Terriers dont come 'beefy' with 'large heads,' your looking for either a Bully or a AmStaff (you can either have an APBT or you can have a beefy dog with a big head, cant have both)

Blue is a dilute black so yes, you can have a blue APBT. As others are saying though, it sounds like you are describing an AmStaff though.

If you are looking fot a blue, and are hell bent on getting a dog with some drive for weightpull, try the TNT line of dogs. I can guarantee that they will have plenty of fire, but watch out for bad conformation some of the breeders are putting out there. I will post a link as soon as I can.

If you go looking for an APBT and find one that just so happens to be blue, then you'll find a blue APBT.

If you go looking for a blue dog that you want to be an APBT, you will end up with a blue dog that's called an "APBT" but is that in such name only.

You've got to get your priorities in the proper order.

I have heard of Eli line (Skull) is known to throw an occasional blue. However it is not an everyday occurance.

I've heard that, too, but the only one I've seen was labeled as "grey" and looked to be a very light black. My friend owns him. ;) And although he's been bred at least 5 times, never once has he thrown another one like himself. (of course, the dog has never been bred for his grey color either..)

I can't remember their name, but the guys in Arkansas used to promote the whole "Skull will produce some blue dogs for you" crap.

I have seen a few the color of my blue dog. However most people with game dogs would not label their dogs blue because of all that comes along with it. And gray is acceptable color term.

It can happen all it is, is a dilute black. Dan's ex had a litter of Sorrrells/Norrod/Rozmus and it had 1 blue pup in the litter the rest were red and fawn.

It is not an every litter occurance with game lines. And the litters that are ALL blue are the ones that are breeding specifically for color

Why is it more of an occurance for true amstaffs to be blue (or you see more of them) than APBT? I know they are different breeds but, since they both started from the same dog and never anything else, why is there so many more blue amstaffs then blue apbt? Is it because Amstaffs are bred for show and, that is a prettier color or something? It is not as if amstaffs were crossed to another breed to get the color since they the same dogs bred for sifferent purposes, so in turn a different breed. Make sense?

This edges on the whole working bred/show bred argument, but I think that either breed can have lines that were bred for looks and they will have more blue dogs. And either breed can have working lines where dilutes are not common, as they should be.

A breeder friend of mine has a Blue Carver dog...and yes I've seen the ped and it is legit. Blue is a recessive of black....
