A Pittie mix is a mixed breed dog from a Pitbull Terrier and any other dog breed.
Some of the most commonly used dog breeds for this mix are large dogs, such as the Labrador Retriever, Rottweiler, Australian Cattle Dog, and Siberian Husky. For small and medium Pittie mixes, the dog breeds commonly used include the Dachshund, Border Collies, Beagles, and Frenchies.
Due to all these possible variations, the expected size and physical appearances of a Pitbull Terrier mix vary greatly from one specific pairing to another. Here is a brief description on some of the most predictable features that you can expect.
How big a Pitbull Terrier mix gets when fully grown depends entirely on the dog breeds used for the pairing with the Pitbull. If it is a large to giant dog breed, you could have a Pittie mixed pooch weighing between 60 to 100 pounds and measuring up to 30 inches in height.
When mixed with a medium-sized dog like the Pitbull itself, the Pittie mix will often fall within the 30 to 50 pounds and 17 to 21 inches ranges.
Finally, Pittie mixes involving pairing with small dogs are usually smaller than 20 inches and weigh less than 30 pounds.
The build of a Pittie mix also varies based on the second dog breed used. However, it is very common to find the resulting mix taking strongly after the Pitbull terrier’s strong, muscular body and proportional features.
The other often predictable trait with Pittie mixed puppies is the coat. The resulting mix may have the Pitbull’s short, smooth, and thin coat in red or black colors. They very rarely have long fur even when mixed with long-haired dog breeds.
