If you’ve ever owned a Pitbull or are thinking of owning one, you know that the terms for different Pitbulls can be very confusing. There are so many terms that are used to describe them. For example, what really is the difference between Blue Pitbulls, White Pitbulls and Red Nose Pitbulls? Well, to explain that, we first need to explore some dog breeds.
You see, the confusion starts with the fact that many dogs are called Pitbulls when they actually aren’t. That was perpetuated by misinformed members of the media and the public. How many Pitbull breeds are there? Well, surprisingly, there’s only one breed with “Pitbull” in it’s title.
You see, when Pitbulls started getting a bad reputation, which, by the way, is mainly undeserved, people started to fear anything that looked even a little like a Pitbull. People also started to confuse the American Pitbull Terrier, or APBT for short, with various other dog breeds. So, dogs that weren’t actually Pitbulls were soon mistaken for them. For example, American Bulldogs, Bull Terriers and Staffordshire Bull Terriers are all confused, on a regular basis, with American Pitbull terriers.
Those are all at least breeds of dogs, though. The confusion was intensified by the addition of descriptive words like “Blue”, “White”, “Red Nose” and more. It’s enough to make anyone dizzy with confusion.
