One of the dog breeds that are currently rapidly gaining notoriety are the Blue pitbulls. Despite the name, these types of pitbulls are actually black, white, spotted-any color but actual blue. The Blue pit pull’s origins can actually be traced back to the 1800s, when the Brits, Irish and Scots started dabbling in the creation of a hybrid that would have more stamina than the British bulldog, and display more aggression than a Terrier. Blue pitbulls were bred to challenge and face down animals much larger than themselves, like bears or bulls. All this information has probably added fuel to the fire that is the bad reputation surrounding the Blue pitbull today. Despite this, the Blue pitbull is an animal that is misunderstood.
Getting to know the blue pitbull
The Blue pitbull has become one of the breeds that many countries, including The United States, are considering banning. This is due to several incidents where the Blue pitbull has displayed aggression and even harmed people. However, the blame should be placed squarely on the owner.
People are sometimes cruel and thoughtless, and adopt dogs for their image. They want to seem ‘tough’ and therefore decide to adopt a Blue pitbull to accentuate this image they have of themselves. Many times they do not bother to train their dog, or learn about its needs, but instead spoil it, provoke it to make it appear even more aggressive and savage. Tragically, in the end they realize even they cannot control it and abandon it to the streets, where ultimately, it will come into contact with people or other animals, none of which it has been taught to handle. The results, as you can imagine, are not pretty.
There is another side to the Blue pitbull. A loyal, obedient, affectionate side. You should not worry, even when you have children in the house, about your Blue pitbull’s temperament. He will be the epitome of gentleness. All a Blue pitbull needs, like any other dog, is kindness, affection and proper training.
In fact, many people are already in love with the idea of getting their own Blue pitbull, as they are considered some of the sweetest animals in the world, once you get past the scary reputation. Blue pitbulls are a ‘working breed’ and therefore need a lot of exercise to channel their natural aggressive instincts and energy. They have a life expectancy of 12 years or even more, so you might have to reconsider getting one if you cannot guarantee that you will be able to take it for walks, run around in the park with it or throw it Frisbees.
Where and how to get a blue pitbull
Despite the high demand, the Blue pitbull is still a little hard to locate since their breed is rare. Not every interbreeding experiment produces a Blue pitbull. The high demand and rarity inevitably tells you that the price for this breed of dog can be quite high. The best places to try are certified Pitbull Kennels or Farms. If you want to make sure you get your own Blue pitbull as soon as possible, get your name on a waiting list so you can be informed of its availability right away.
