Full Answer

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.
