American Pitbull Terrier (APBT)

They are around 6-8 inches more than Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Under APBT too, many dogs have got named to be Bluenose or Rednose. These types of pit bulls are not separate, but we can say that they are a particular shade of purebred dogs.
It is very quick to spot Rednose from birth time. They had copper/red/brown shade of the fur, eyes, nose, and toenails. These are very rarely found and thus they have got a high price tag. Aside from shade, they are intelligent, loyal, trainable, and gentle dogs. It is good for you to keep this dog at home only if you have experience with powerful, large dogs.
Bluenose Pittie has a tone of grey and blue for toenails, eyes, fur, and noses. Again due to their shade, these dogs have high price tags as Rednose dogs. These are fun-loving dogs who adore their families. Blue dogs originate with recessive genes, and thus, they result in the low melanin levels. It might lead to a lot of health problems that might include a weak immune system, cataracts, deafness, alopecia, and heart problems.
