Would YOU Choose a Dog Because of Nose Color?

Hello fellow bloggers and doggy friends!!! We hope everyone has been enjoying themselves recently and more importantly giving your doggy companions as much love as possible!! Motley and I wanted to thank The Emptynester's Family Daily for there comment on the previous post about bubbles!!! Motley loved it!! It was a neat and enjoyable experience just watching him react to the bubbles. But thanks again for that tip!!

So on to the topic at hand. I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who is very interested in getting a pit bull. I had asked him if he looked around for them at shelters or if he was more interested in getting a puppy and raising it up. I always suggest looking at shelters first, but some people want to go through the puppy stages, training, and all that.

He expressed to me he had been looking at shelters, seeing whats out there, but was leaning more to finding a puppy. He then went on to make a statement that through my mind for a loop. I can understand maybe wanting a certain color dog(blue,brindle,fawn,white,black,etc), but he expressed he had to have a blue nose pit bull because they were better than the rest. I gladly asked why he thought that color nose mean't it was a better dog but he could not give me an answer. I didn't have a problem with him wanting a blue nose pit, but I couldn't understand why he thought that mean't it was better and that, that is how he planned on choosing his dog.

I had to break the news to him guys. Whether the nose is


or Black

It means nothing but that, COLOR. None of the three colors is any better than the other. I'm sure I don't have to go any further with this discussion for ya'll to know he felt kind of silly about his statement. 

I just really wanted to make that clear and that if your looking for a dog, any type really, there are many more things you should be thinking about then the color of its nose. 


  1. Nope, never. But I'd scoop up all three of these beauties just because!

  2. I don't even choose a dog by it's coat color, do you??? I just love dogs any color and kind any size!!! Any kind of a noise!!!! lol

  3. So glad you furbaby loved bubbles as much as our 6 do! All we say is who wants to play bubbles and there gone, lol

  4. Bubbles? I'm going to have to give this a try! My man also believed that blue nose pits were better. There have been many pit myths that we have researched and dispelled as well :)

  5. We used to live in a neighborhood where several backyard breeders had cardboard signs in their front yard advertising "blue nose pit puppies" as that seems to be the coveted thing these days. It just disgusted me. Whenever people ask me where they can find a blue nose pit I always ask them why? Pick a dog based on it's personality! And in our neighborhood, blue, red, pure-bred, mut, everything ends up on E-list as a puppy-- so even if you wanted a pure-bred blue nose pit you can get it as a 6 week old puppy rescued. Breeding is out of control in Phoenix and I always have a hugely emotional response to this issue.

  6. Hi thanks for stopping by and following! Your blog is great!! Love those beautiful pitbulls :) Will add your blog to my blogroll :)

  7. Maybe he's a gentleman that doesn't prefer blonds Hehe! Deccy x

  8. I agree with Emily. Even if your friend is looking for a young puppy, it is still worth checking out the shelters first. There are often pitbull puppies in shelters because they take in pregnant dogs and dogs who recently gave birth to a litter.

    And Mushroom has a red nose - doesn't mean a thing!

  9. Any color will do, it's the bonding that's important.

  10. So strange! I picked my younger dog because I saw a photo of her and fell in love (plus she has the greatest personality. All sweetness). She is a fawn pit/lab with a reddish nose. My older dog I picked by personality, not color or breed. She is a black/darkest brown pit lab with a black nose.
