    Thanks for NOT closeing!

    i have begun seeing "blue nose" bull terriers popping up here and there, wondering if the dogs are mixed with pitbulls or if its genetic like the livers being "dilute"
    anyone know about blue genetics?

    Blue is a dilute of black. Sometimes they're mixed and sometimes they're not. Blue bred to blue can also raise the chances of skin alopecia, allergies and demodex which by the way is associated with merle. It's that genetically weakened immune system that lets those mites get out of control.

    Isn't liver connected to cause a Zinc problem in Bull terriers?

    Blue nose bull terrier apperantly she is AKC registerd, but that would be easy to pull of if she were in fact a mix.

    Any breed that comes in black can come in blue as it is a dilution of the black gene. It's just more uncommon/undesirable in some breeds.

    I was always been under the impression that the true albino's had red/pink eyes, not blue. I also believe that blue eyes have been associated with deafness. In some breeds liver is undesired and a fault, in others it is a disqualifier. Although some look very nice it is not something that you would want to use in your breeding program, that is if you are a responsible breeder. JMHO

    ive seen this blue nose bull terrier, they claim is a show dog-HAHAHAHA! thats absurd, she is most likely mixed, somewhere in her genes. Other than this female, i havent seen a blue bull terrier as of yet, but the light eyes and the large splash marks on her back and the blue nose, is all highly undesirable. just because someone likes to "show off" there odd colored bull terrier, certainly doesnt make her a show dog. hahaha. liver colored bull terriers are becoming more and more common to see, if there related to health problems i have no idea...

    i did see another advert for a white bully pup who had a blue nose, but the puppy mustve been sold since i cannot find the ad again. :/

    yeh, that blue nose female above, i really think shes a mix of somthing else, mainly due to her eyes, she has the lightest eyes ive ever seen, Cesar has light eyes for a bully, but his are dark chocolate brown,not gold

    ahhhh dont you know the rule?!? if you see something cool in bull terriers you save it to your computer!! otherwise i cant believe in it!! haha. i saw some pics of a bull terrier with blue eyes, solid white, they said he could hear and see fine, only one in the litter like it, though i wouldnt buy one like that, its the most absolutely stunning bull terrier i have ever seen, and i did save the photos too. he just looked so majestic, really really amazing looking. the kind of photography i could do with that...ooooh

    Albinos can have blue eyes, depending on the type of albinism. Blue eyes (the bright, piercing blue) is a lack of pigment... the colour is the same from birth through adulthood, whereas pigmented eyes change from a newborn/puppy colour through to adult colour.

    That blue nose bull terrier is a blue fawn. It is a dilute of a regular fawn, which has black pigment.
