Red Nose Pit Bull
One of the things that many love about this breed is it’s variety of coat colors. There is a rainbow of Pitbull colors. Some coat colors are common and some are more unique. Regardless of the dog’s coat color, the coat should always be short, flat, and shiny. Depending on the coat color of the dog, the nose leather will either be black or the same color as the dogs predominant coat color. For example, some blue dogs may have blue noses or black noses. A blue dog would never have a red nose. Below are some of the many coat colors of the Pit Bull.
