The eyes of a blue-nose pit bull tend to be a dusky gray, though they are commonly referred to as blue. Like other pit bulls, they have medium-sized eyes that sit low and are spaced far apart on the skull.
The blue-nose pit bull is named for its grayish nose leather, which differs from the usual black nose of other pit bulls. The blue-nose is not a separate breed, but the product of a recessive trait and a color pigmentation flaw that must be carried by both parents. The coat of the dog normally ranges from a silvery blue or gray to deep charcoal.
