The key difference between black Pitbulls and other regular American Pitbull Terriers is their color. Whereas other Pitbulls come in a wide range of colors, including white, yellow, brown, tan, brindle, red, blue, and so on, the black Pitbull has a shiny, black coat.
Some black Pits are a solid black, while others have white patterns on their coat. Black Pits with white patterns on their chests are often referred to as “tuxedo” Pitbulls. It is good to note that there is a difference between a black Pitbull and a blue nose Pitbull.
Like most other Pitbulls, the black Pitbull is a huge canine, weighing up to 80 lbs and growing to a height of about 21 inches at the shoulders.
They have broad heads with a shortened muzzle, short, folded ears, a stocky, muscular build, broad chests, short but very strong legs, and a short tail that is usually held low. Their coat is dense and short haired.
Are Black Pitbulls Rare?
A lot of people believe that the black Pitbull is very rare. However, this is just a rumor that has been propagated by unscrupulous breeders trying to sell their black Pitbulls to new dog owners at higher prices.
In reality, black is a very common Pitbull color, which makes black Pitbulls inexpensive compared to some other Pitbull colors. Some of the rare Pitbull colors include white, tan, seal, buckskin, and tri color Pitbulls.
According to the American Pitbull Registry, merle Pitbulls are the rarest and most in demand.
