What Is A Blue Razor Edge Pitbull?
Blue Razor Edge Pitbulls are a mixed breed between a pureblood Pitbull and an English Bulldog or Mastiff. These animals are bred as companion dogs rather than purebred Pitbulls that are produced for competition.
The blue and white colors of the Razor Edge Pitbull are typically the color you will find. They were bred to make sure they maintain this color.
Pitbulls will only become aggressive if they are trained that way due to their competitive nature, but the Razor Edge Pitbull bloodlines are typically gentle. The Razor Edge Pitbull bloodline is one of the most sought-after breeds due to its gentle nature and companion characteristics. If raised in a home and socialized from a young age, a Blue Razor Edge Pitbull can be the right family pet.
Appearance of the Blue Razor Edge Pitbulls
The Razor Edge Pitbull has an appearance that is quite distinct from how they are bred, ensuring they look different from other pit bull breeds.
The head of this Pitbull is large with a square muzzle.
This can give them an aggressive look if you do not know the dog.
The color of the nose can be different depending on the breed and the gene pool it has. Typically though, the nose will match the color of the coat on the rest of the dog.
The ears on a Blue Razor Edge Pitbull can either be cropped or pointy depending on the gene pool in which it was created. The facial expressions of this particular breed may seem to be dopey, but in fact, they are quite smart animals whose large heads and squashed muzzle can make it appear the opposite.
The build of this Pitbull is a very short, stocky, and strong build.
These dogs were built to have a strong chest and thick legs. Just like any other Pitbull breed, they have a muscular physique and a healthy body. However, the end of the Blue Edged Razor Pitbull is shorter and stockier than a normal Pitbull.
Gender is a significant factor in how much these Pitbulls weigh. The Razor Edge Pitbull’s weight is mainly muscle which can be a factor in determining its weight and size.
The color of a Blue Razor Edge Pitbull can differ. Depending on the genes passed to the Pitbull, the colors will vary. Nevertheless, the perception is that the color of most of these Pitbulls alternate between the shades of gray and black. They also have white markings on their face, chest, and feet.
This type of Pitbull coat is a deficient shedding dog, meaning that your grooming schedule does not have to be consistent.
The consistency of the coat is short and stiff, with glossy color. This can help with the shedding as well. Also, the coat will only contain one color meaning it will typically match the dog’s nose.
How to choose an ethical breeder
Now that you’ve contacted a couple of breeders and maybe organised to visit their kennels, how do you choose a responsible and ethical breeder?
Pitbulls are a popular dog breed to breed. Unethical breeders breed Pitbulls for their own monetary gain rather than being a responsible steward of the breed. People who run large-scale breeding operations like Puppy Mills or small-scale Backyard Breeders are considered unethical.
Use our checklist below when buying your Razor Edge Pitbull to ensure you are using a reputable breeder.
Ensure your breeder offers a health certificate from a licensed veterinarian. This ensures their dogs have been screened for hereditary health issues that are common to the Pitbull breed.
The minimum health checks you should insist on are:
For the best pedigree Pitbulls, one of the breeding parents should have titles (papers) from the United Kennel Club, American Kennel Club, and/or the American Bully Kennel Club. This title backs up the claim that the pups are bred from championship bloodlines. It demonstrates that the parent’s excelled as champions either at performance events or the show ring.
The best breeders offer a 2 year health guarantee.
If a licensed vet diagnoses your pup with a serious genetic issue within 2 years of purchase that affects their quality of life, the breeder will offer a refund of the purchase price or provide another puppy.
Some of the breeders listed in Table B above provide Health Guarantees.
Check the breeder has vaccinated your puppy from diseases like parvovirus, canine distemper, adenovirus type 2, and parainfluenza.
Check that the breeder has commenced a deworming protocol.
They should be able to provide records of vaccinations and worming treatments.
The breeder should only breed Blue Razor Edge Pitbulls or pitbulls only and not any other breed.
The breeder should only breed a number of times per year and does not have puppies available year round.
The breeder should not advertise their dogs as good guard dogs. If they do, this means they could be breeding aggressive dogs.
Kudos goes to breeders who are active in breed rescue which demonstrates their passion and concern for Pitbulls.
The breeder should allow you to visit their kennels and view the pups with their mom.
Whilst at the kennels, check the facility is clean and humane.
An ethical breeder should ask you lots of questions and not just ask you for payment. Questions like how much do you know about the breed, your experience, the dog’s living conditions at home, why you want a dog and so on.
The breeder wants to be assured their puppy is going to a responsible new owner and they will be looked after.
You should thoroughly read the breeders contract. Here’s a useful guide from the American Kennel Club.
