The Brindle Pitbull is a muscular, medium-sized dog with a brindle coat color, wide-set small eyes and short floppy rounded ears. Brindle is one of several color variations within the Pit-bull dog breed; not a separate dog breed.
There is sometimes confusion over what constitutes a Pitbull breed and the different names to describe them, they are often referred to as a:
Brindle Pit Bull, American Pitbull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Blue Nose Pitbull, Blue Nose Brindle Pitbull, Red Nose Brindle Pitbull, Brindle Pittie, Pitty or a simply a Pitbull dog.
This is generally a loving dog but strong-willed and has a reputation for being a fighting dog. It’s not good within packs of other dogs and needs supervision around young children. This dog breed can be affectionate, and when trained and socialized can be a loyal family pet.
Blue Nose Brindle Pitbulls
The skins on their noses are slightly bluish-grey.
They have soft blue or grey colorings in their coat markings.
The blue color may alternate with light brown or another color.
Blue brindle pits also tend to have some white coloration on their chest and feet.
Feeding and Nutrition
Like other dogs, reverse brindle Pitbulls need adequate amounts of meat, vegetables, fruits, and vitamins in their diet to meet their nutritional needs.
Preferably, their diets should contain high amounts of proteins and a lot of water (about 40-50 ounces of water per day) given that they are active breeds that need to stay energetic throughout the day.
What breed is a brindle pitbull?
A Brindle Pitbull is either an American Pitbull Terrier or an American Staffordshire Terrier that has a brindle coat. People often affectionately refer to them as simply Pitbulls or Pitties. They were originally bred for blood sports.
It is true that many Terriers and other bully breeds were used as fighting dogs. However, the red brindle Pitbull is no longer bred for its aggressiveness. Canines with a more gentle temperament are often chosen as breeding dogs, and thus, the personality traits are passed down to their pups.
Having a brindle coat is slightly more rare in the JRT than other breeds, but it makes for a stunning combination of color and energy. These pups are extremely smart! They are one of the smartest dogs you can own, and they train as easily as a Golden Retriever, if not easier.
An obedient Brindle Pit Bull who is treated properly is a very loyal and affectionate dog. If they perceive danger to themselves or their owner, they can become hostile.
Though the brindle coat is caused by a recessive gene (and some complicated genetic science,) it’s not rare. The United Kennel Club recognizes a brindle coat in a pit bull, but it does not recognize a merle, or splotchy coat, which is not natural to the pit bull.
