30 Rare Pitbull Colors That You Don’t Even Know They Exist

Last Updated on July, 2024

Imagine having a rare colored Pit Bull of your choice. 

On the other hand, imagine settling down for what you get and coming across a Pit Bull of your desired rare color after a few months of getting the dog.

Which one do you prefer? It should be the first one.

The gap between the first and the (not-so-happy) second situation is knowledge.

Wherever you are in the research process, you can count on this article to figure out the best rare Pitbull color.

Quick Summary

There’re 30 different rarest Pitbull colors on this article. Read on to learn the facts about each Pitbull colors.

The color of a Pit Bull can also impact its perceived image and personality traits. For example, a black Pit Bull may give off a more intimidating appearance, while a tan Pit Bull may be seen as more friendly and approachable.

It is important to consider potential health risks that may come with breeding or purchasing a rare colored Pit Bull, as some colors and patterns are the result of genetic mutations and can lead to health complications.

30 Rare Pitbull Colors

1. Black Pitbull 

pictures of black colored pitbulls

If intimidation is your priority, you can never go wrong with a Black Pit Bull. 

The specialty of Pit Bulls with a solid black coat is that they’re pretty scary-looking for intruders but make amazingly affectionate family dogs.

The solid black coat color with multiple markings might be common, but solid black Pit Bulls are rare.

You’d find them bonding exceptionally well with young children. Most people believe that the attachment of black Pit Bulls to little kids results from their watchdog instinct. Black Pit Bulls make attentive companion dogs. 

The secret to unlocking their full potential is training and socializing them from a young age. Black Pitbull puppies are born entirely black.

In conclusion, Pit Bulls with the signature basic black coat look pretty amazing.

2. Blue Nose Pitbull

pictures of a blue nose pitbull

Blue Nose Pit Bull is also the same as the blue Pitbulls. Even if their noses look black, you’ll notice that it is a dark blue upon closer inspection.

It’s difficult to breed a Blue Pitbull as it is a result of a recessive gene. Breeding these dogs from the limited gene pool is believed to increase health risks. 

But regardless of these claims, potential Pit Bull owners absolutely love the blue nose, Blue Pitbull. The secret to a healthy Pit Bull is always to choose a reputable breeder.

Furthermore, the base color of Blue Pit Bulls can vary from bright silver to dark blue. The hair tips remain almost colorless, and the pigmentation concentrates around the follicle center.

That’s why, similar to other blue coat colors, you’ll find the coat color of a Blue Pit Bull to have a distinct grayish tint. That’s how to spot Blue-Nosed Pit Bulls.

3. Tan Pitbull

pictures of tan pitbulls

Tan Pit Bulls might not be as rare as blue-nosed or Blue-Fawn Pit Bulls, but they’re still not a commonly found color.

Pitbull isn’t an AKC-registered dog breed; it’s an umbrella term to represent four types of Pitbull breeds. That’s why there aren’t any AKC-standard Pitbull colors. 

Pheomelanin is the pigmentation that results in the Tan Pit Bull. But it’s the dilution gene that brings down the red color all the way to that cream-ish tan color.

These dogs typically have white markings. That brings a distinct color utterly different from the brown/bronze coat color.

These dogs tend to have brown or beige-colored noses with typically brown eyes. It’s borderline impossible to find blue eyes on a Tan Pit Bull.

4. Seal Pitbull

It is still a mystery what exactly causes the seal coat color. 

However, a professor of pathology and genetics at Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine speculates that the Seal Pit Bull is basically a solid Black Pit Bull with one significant difference. (1)

This difference is the lack of dominance of the black pigment compared to Black Pit Bulls.

Their relative rarity makes Seal Pit Bulls more expensive than Black Pit Bulls.

Since they share the same pigment, Seal Pit Bulls’ noses will be black, similar to their eyes.

5. Buckskin Pitbull

pictures of buckskin pitbulls

The Agouti (A) locus dominant red gene is responsible for the buckskin coat color. 

The American Dog Breeders Association (ADBA) outlines the buckskin color as a combination of a tan coat with yellow undertones. But it isn’t uncommon to find white areas on the chest and tummy just as much as the paws.

Typical Buckskin Pitbulls tend to have a dark nose with black eyes, if not for genetic mutations. Contrary to some claims, the Buckskin Pit Bull is rare. You’ll find some even have red noses hinting at the Jeep Pitbull bloodline.

6. Bronze Pitbull

pictures of bronze pitbulls

Similar to the buckskin coat color, the same The Agouti (A) locus dominant red gene causes the bronze coat color. 

But why are there two colors?

The only difference is the extent of activeness of the dilution gene. Bronze Pit Bulls experience the dilution gene in the D locus, resulting in the rich bronze color. Remember that “bronze” means a red-brown mixture with a tinge of shine.

You’ll notice that almost all Bronze Pitbull Dogs have distinct brown colors around their eyes and muzzles. If these areas are black, that Pit Bull is not considered to belong to the bronze coat color category.

Their rarity makes them a bit more expensive, so you should verify their authenticity before getting your pup.

7. White Pitbull

Have you ever seen a pure White Pit Bull? The chances are low. White Pitbull dogs are quite rare, which is why they’re so expensive.

Their coats tend to be entirely white with black points, such as the nose and paw pads. The eyes should also ideally be black. 

But you may come across White Pit Bulls with pinkish noses and maybe even bright blue eyes — these aren’t White Pitbull dogs but albino ones.

Albino Pit Bulls come with several health complications, and you most definitely shouldn’t pay the price of a healthy white Pit Bull for them.

Although grooming requirements might be high, White Pit Bulls are rare, majestic, and very healthy.

8. Liver Pitbull

Liver Pit Bulls are comparable to Chocolate Pit Bulls in their coat color, which is distinctly darker than bronze, exhibiting a shade that settles in the spectrum between gray and brown, unlike the lighter hue of fawn.

Some Liver Pit Bulls have a bright chocolate color on their coats with brown paws, nose, and eyes — that full-brown body is phenomenal.

The cause of this color is the dilution of the black eumelanin pigment.

Most people who don’t like solid Black Pit Bulls still want that intimidation factor and choose darker colors like liver. 

If you come across a fully Liver/Chocolate Pit Bull, think very hard before letting it go, as the color is quite magnificent and rare.

9. Red Nose Pitbull

pictures of red nose pitbulls

Red is one of the most common Pit Bull colors, but the Red Nose Pitbull is very different from the common Red Pit Bull.

What is the difference?

The difference is that the Red Pit Bull has a black nose with a red coat color. The Red Nose Pitbull dogs are the same as Red Pit Bulls, but they have red noses. Similar to bronze, this red color could range from dark to light brown.

The responsible gene for this phenomenon is pheomelanin. The dominant prevalence of pheomelanin over eumelanin causes the red nose. The dominance of eumelanin causes black noses.

10. Red Sable Pitbull

Ay genotype causes the black tips of the hairs in the Red Sable Pit Bull. The base of the hair has a reddish hue.

This reddish color is present due to the absence of the dominant black K-Locus allele.

So, Red Nose and Red Pit Bulls aren’t the same as Red Sable Pit Bulls. As a matter of fact, Red Sable Pit Bulls are very rare in the market. 

Red Sable Pit Bulls typically have brown-red noses, although a minority have black noses. But you won’t be able to find two similar Red Sable Pit Bulls.

The reason is the differentiation of gene interaction, which decides the coat color saturation.

11. Fawn Sable Pitbull

Fawn sable is not a color listed under the Staffordshire Bull Terrier standard colors by the AKC. 

But while the American Staffordshire breed standard accepts the color.

Don’t blame yourself if you slightly confuse a Fawn Sable with a Fawn Pit Bull, as it is a variant.

But you’ll find a distinctive black overlay that could go all the way to their muzzles in Fawn Sable Pit Bulls.

However, the base color is not always fawn; you’d notice there’s a tinge of reddish cream color.

The Fawn Sable Pit Bull is not only attractive but is a rare and expensive dog.

12. Black Brindle Pitbull

Brindle patterns are often confused with brindle Pitbull colors. That’s why some internet sources will tell you that Brindle-Colored Pit Bulls are common — they are not.

The Black Brindle Pitbull coat has a black base with tan colored tiger-like stripes, which is hard to notice at first glance.

The gene itself is recessive. If you remember, the blue Pitbull gene was also recessive. That’s why both coat colors are rare. 

The KBR allele in the K Locus typically has a dominant black gene. This, of course, increases the black color’s saturation as a base color.

You’ll be able to see signature tiger stripes better when you breed them with dog parents with dominating brindle KBR allele.

But one thing is for sure: this brindle dog coat in Pit Bulls is quite attractive. What you need to know is that the dominant color in a brindle dog determines the dog’s coat name.

13. Red Brindle Pitbull

pictures of red brindle pitbulls

All brindle colors have a base color; it’s the pattern that changes. For Red Brindle Pit Bulls, the base coat is lighter. The reason is the dilution of the pheomelanin pigment, which is the same pigment that causes the red color.

The Red Brindle Pitbull isn’t as famous as the Black Brindle. Some Pit Bull owners are affected by a version of black dog syndrome as the red brindle Pit Bulls have an aged look.

But that problem is only prominent when the entire body is covered with red brindle fur.

While the outer coat consists of deep red tiger stripes, it’s normal for some Red Brindle Pit Bulls to have a white chest and tummy; in fact, that mixture makes them much more attractive than most fully Red Brindle Pit Bulls.

14. Blue Brindle Pitbull

pictures of blue brindle pitbulls

Brindle colors and bluish hues are two of the rarest Pit Bulls’ color palettes. When you combine them as blue brindle, the coat color becomes even rarer.

You’ll notice that most Blue Brindle Dogs have a silver base color. Some of them have white markings on the chest and tummy. But most of the time, the silvery base coat affects the white markings, making them look darker.

But the dark stripes are easy to notice on any Blue Brindle Pitbull body. It takes the combination of the KBR (brindle) gene with the (B) black predominant gene affected by the dilution (d) gene.

That’s why you’re lucky if you come across one. But their rarity makes the Blue Brindle Pit Bull quite expensive on the market.

15. Fawn Brindle Pitbull

pictures of fawn brindle pitbulls

The rich cream base coat color is very prominent in Fawn Brindle Pit Bulls. 

The fawn in Pitbulls can vary between brown-red-yellow with a temperate glow to pale brown with no red or gold tones, because the fawn belongs to the Dominant Black (K-locus). Stripes across their bodies vary between chocolate brown to black shades.

The fawn brindle color is much darker than the Fawn Pit Bull. So, the chances of confusing each other are quite low. 

However, sometimes, the brindle gene will be dominated by the black pigmentations, lowering the intensity of the stripes.

This is why you might confuse a Fawn Brindle Pit Bull with a bronze Pitbull with white markings or a fawn Pit Bull whose base coat is darker. Although not as rare as blue brindles, fawn brindles can be quite expensive.

16. Blue Fawn Brindle Pitbull

pictures of blue fawn brindle pitbulls

As mentioned earlier, the combination of rare colors increases their market value. You already know blue, fawn, and brindle are rare Pitbull colors.

What do you get when all three are combined? One of the rarest Pit Bull color combinations.

Similar to other brindle Pitbull dogs, the Blue Fawn Brindle Pitbull coat is made up of a lighter base coat and a darker overlay. 

Fawn typically dominates with silvery-blue stripes across the body. However, you may also come across dark stripes.

Another prominent feature is their red nose. If not for red, it should be at least dark brown. Black spots are rarely seen in a Blue Fawn Brindle Pitbull.

17. Brown Brindle Pitbull

pictures of Brown Brindle Pitbulls

Except for the black brindle, the tiger stripes (the brindle pattern) are easy to notice thanks to the lighter-colored coat. 

Similar to the black brindle coat, the brown base coat makes the tiger stripes appear lighter. However, Brown Brindle Pit Bulls are still a widely sought-after Pit Bull color that’s not so common. 

One of the mandatory features of any brown brindle is the black mask. Check if it covers the muzzle and the eye rims. If not, there’s a high chance that this is just a typical Pit Bull with some random markings.

Don’t worry if there are some white patches on the chest and tummy — it’s pretty common.

18. Liver Brindle Pitbull

Tiger stripes are chocolate-colored in Liver Brindle Pit Bulls. You’ll be able to see these stripes clearly, as the base coat is typically white.

That special characteristic makes the colors look much more prominent. This white and liver color combination is unique to the Liver Brindle Pit Bull.

That helps this coat color maintain a higher market value.

The eyes and nose of a Liver Brindle Pit Bull tend to be black, although paws are typically white.

You can also expect some amount of white base coat on the face. Liver brindle is the most common brindle Pit Bull color.

19. Champagne Brindle Pitbull

Champagne Brindle Pit Bulls resemble the champagne color quite elegantly.

Unlike blue, the golden brown color is clearly seen on their coats. Although champagne brindle is a rare Pit Bull color, some Pit Bulls of this color have a white tummy and chest.

While these are considered markings, it isn’t the same as having a white base coat. You may notice that the tiger stripes on these dogs aren’t that visible.

The reason for the lowered visibility of the “brindle stripes” of black and brown brindle coat colors is nothing but the darker base coat.

However, in champagne brindles, it’s simply because the stripes are of light colors.

Champagne brindles cannot have black stripes, unlike typical rare brindle colors, and that’s one aspect that makes them unique.

20. Reverse Brindle Pitbull

pictures of reverse brindle pitbulls

All the (rare) brindle colors we have discussed so far had a common characteristic — a lighter color base and dark stripes. These colors are flipped in Reverse Brindle Pit Bulls, hence the name.

Most Reverse Brindle Pit Bulls have fawn or tan brindle tiger stripes. But these marks aren’t exactly bright enough to appear clear. You might even see Reverse Brindle Pit Bulls that almost look fully black.

Nonetheless, it’s glorious when a dog has lighter shades over a darker base color. They only look more intimidating with their black nose, feet, and eyes.

Being a rare Pit Bull color, you’ll be lucky to come across one of these dogs.

21. Brown and Tan Pitbull

The tan point gene is necessary for the tan coat to appear.

But it’s the gene interaction that decides the color distribution with dual-colored coats like brown and tan.

At first glance, brown and tan might sound like the same color, but it’s not so.

Brown is much darker, while tan in this coat is almost a mixture of cream and off-white.

Even though recessive black is rare, dogs that are heterozygous for tan and recessive black can express the tan points. 

Most kennel clubs don’t accept this color combination. Nonetheless, higher demand and a lack of adequately bred Brown And Tan Pit bulls have increased their market value.

These dogs have dark brown noses (almost always) with brown/black eyes. The mixture of light and dark colors makes the dog well-balanced in terms of being intimidating yet friendly.

22. Black and White Pitbull

pictures of black and white pitbulls

Black And White Pit bulls are somewhat rare. With their distinctive resting posture and body type, you’ll find a considerable resemblance to a bulked-up Dalmatian.

Most Black And White Pitbull dogs are American Bullies and AmStaffs breeds. There is no way to plan the base coat and the markings, as it’s typically a matter of chance. Most commonly, the coat is predominantly black with white markings. 

These markings are typically seen on the chest, tummy, and paws. Similar to Black And Tan Pit Bulls, the color combinations make them look classier, more elegant, and less intimidating.

In case you were wondering, yes, these are also called Moo Moo Pit Bulls, as they resemble Friesian dairy cows.

23. Blue and White Pitbull

pictures of blue and white pitbulls

The coat pattern of Blue And White Pit Bulls is more similar to brown and tan than black and white. The base coat will typically be white, and the markings will be blue. 

The signature silvery blue hue will be present on their coats, similar to other coat patterns with blue.

Most Blue And White Pit Bulls have dark blue noses that look black until you look closely. In rare instances, the dogs will also have cream-ish noses with cream paws.

Pit bulls of this coat color are extremely rare and not easy to breed. Several kennel clubs frown upon blue and white coats, discouraging breeders from supplying for the demand.

24. Champagne and White Pitbull

pictures of champagne and white pitbulls

If you remember, the Champagne Pit Bull we discussed earlier had a distinct chocolate coat color. But instead of a white base coat, they had white markings, especially on the tummy and chest.

Champagne And White Pit Bull is actually a version of the Champagne Pit Bull. The only difference is that there’s a wide white coat instead of scattered white markings. 

Both Champagne and Champagne & White Pit Bulls are hard to find. Their rarity factor increases with their nose color coming as red or blue. 

The color is healthy and has a well-balanced appearance, making them suited for families needing love and protection.

25. Piebald Pitbull

Piebald Pit Bulls and black and white Pit Bulls are two rare Pit Bull colors.

However, there’s one similarity, as both come in black and white coat colors.

So, what makes Piebald Pit Bulls differ from Black And White Pit Bulls? The white and black color distribution in Piebald Pit Bulls is about 20% to 60%, different from Black And White Pit Bulls.

But the lack of pigmentation causes white color, which is the same cause for the white in black and white Pit Bulls.

Piebald Pit Bulls tend to have white legs (with black paws) and black points. Since Piebald Pit Bulls result from a recessive gene, it’s not easy to breed them.

The gene responsible is the microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MITF) gene.

26. Blue Mask Pitbull

Pictures of blue mask pitbulls

Black mask is not so uncommon amongst Pit Bulls; blue mask is.

The blue mask’s visibility always depends on the base coat color. The darker the colors, the lower the visibility. That’s why blue masks on a Blue Pitbull aren’t easy to notice, although they are visible upon closer observation.

Em black mask allele in the E locus is responsible for the blue mask that typically covers the face. It is the extension locus effect that affects the pigment (eumelanin) distribution. That’s why the color stops at a bluish hue.

Blue Mask Pit Bulls are rare and hard to breed. When getting one of these dogs, make sure to double-check the mask yourself since you shouldn’t pay the price of a black mask for a Blue Mask Pit Bull.

27. Blue Champagne Pitbull

Champagne Pit Bulls typically come with a distinctive yellowish-cream color, which results from the dilution gene that affects the red pigmentations.

The interaction of red pigmentation and the dilution gene also affects the Blue Champagne Pit Bull.

Blue Champagne Pit Bulls and Champagne Pit Bulls almost look identical except for a few key differences.

Unlike Champagne Pit Bulls, Blue Champagne Pit Bulls have eye rims, lips, paw pads, and even noses with a shade of blue.

Observing these colors under sunlight is the ideal method to distinguish them. Flashlights and weak lights might not be strong enough sometimes.

You wouldn’t want to pay the price of a rarer Blue Champagne Pit Bull for a regular Champagne Pit Bull.

28. Tri-Colored Pitbull

Pictures of tri-colored pitbulls

Tri-colored Pit Bull coats are caused by the recessive (at) allele gene. The recessive gene and the difficulty of getting the predicted colors have made Tri-Colored Pit Bulls the jewels of the Pit Bull world.

Most of the time, these three colors fluctuate between white, tan, and black. When that happens, it’s common for the white color to dominate the chest and tummy areas when black and tan fur is on the rest of the body.

It’s difficult to predict the eye and nose colors of Tri-Color Pit Bulls as it highly depends on the pigment concentration of the body. But these beasts look majestic, even if it is an odd color combination of white, tan, and blue.

Spotting a Tri-Colored Pitbull puppy will be difficult as their colors change as they grow.

29. Spotted Pitbull

Think of a Dalmatian coat on a Pit Bull; that’s a quick way to imagine the Spotted Pit Bull. They typically have white spots on a black base coat.

The key feature of this coat color is that the spots are very irregular.

This irregularity of spots is caused by the microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MITF) gene in the S locus. The recessive gene makes spotted Pit Bulls quite rare and expensive.

These spotted patterns can vary from solid patches to minor specks all over the body. It’s the variety of colors that makes Spotted Pit Bulls so aesthetic.

However, Spotted Pit Bulls should not be confused with Merle Pit Bulls, which we will discuss next.

30. Merle Pitbull

Pictures of merle pitbulls

We saved the best and the rarest Pit Bull color for last; Merle Pit Bulls are the rarest Pit Bull color, making them also the most expensive, as high as $30,000 in some cases.

Merle And Spotted Pit Bulls differ as they have spots on different parts of their coats, while Spotted Pit Bulls have spots all over their body.

Merle colors look artistic on any dog, and it applies to Pit Bulls. 

The cherry on top is how some Merle Pit Bulls have blue eyes, bi-colored eyes (one eye having two colors), or heterochromia eyes (the two eyes are of two different colors).

Dilution of the merle allele in the M locus causes the merle coat. The gene dilutes and transforms solid parts of the coat into a lighter color. For example, this transition could be from red to brown or gray to white.

That’s why you can have Merle Pit Bulls of a wide color range, like blue or red. This variation is also affected by the gene’s heterozygous (Mm) or homozygous (MM) nature.

If you come across a Merle Pit Bull for an affordable price, be sure to consider hard before letting that opportunity slide away.

Types of Pitbulls 

Types of Pitbulls 

Pitbulls aren’t recognized by the AKC not because they’re not a high-quality breed but because the term Pit Bull is an umbrella or blanket term to generalize four different Pit Bull breeds. 

Let’s look at what these breeds are.

1. American Staffordshire Terrier

The American Staffordshire Terrier grows up to an average height of 17-19 inches, weighing 40-70 pounds. The breed also comes in over a dozen standard AKC colors, including black, blue, fawn, brown, and white.

This is the same dog commonly known as the AmStaff. The AmStaff dog is known to be quite healthy. Their muscular bull-type body complements their agile movement. The breed is identified as intelligent and highly trainable.

Their higher intelligence levels make the American Staffordshire Terrier dog quite versatile. That’s why they are fantastic family dogs, just as much as watchful guard dogs.

However, iPetGuides’ recommendation is to supervise them when they’re around little children. AmStaff is generally larger than the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. That’s the next Pit Bull type we shall discuss.

2. Staffordshire Bull Terrier

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was an invention of James Hinks. 

He wanted to breed a Pit Bull that was socially acceptable and wasn’t as aggressive as the AmStaff. That’s why Staffordshire Bull Terriers will always be better companion dogs.

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is not a purebred dog. The breed is a cross between a bulldog and a terrier. The American Kennel Club accepts the Staffordshire Bull Terrier breed. 

Their average height is about 14-16 inches, with an average weight range of 24-38 pounds.

Staffordshire Bull Terriers are exceptionally friendly with family members and little children. That’s why the breed is an upgrade from the AmStaff for Pitbull lovers who want the Pit Bull energy in the family setting.

Similar to the AmStaff, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier comes in over a dozen AKC-accepted standard colors.

3. American Pitbull Terrier

It’s an exaggeration to say that the American Pitbull Terrier is the most popular Pit Bull breed. 

American Pitbull Terriers were initially bred to be fighting dogs, but the breed has evolved from a decorated war dog to a companion dog, full of love for family members. They’re watchful protectors that must be well-loved.

Although not recognized by the American Kennel Club, the American Pitbull Terrier is registered in other major kennel clubs worldwide, including the United Kennel Club (UKC) and the American Dog Breeders Association (ADBA).

The average American Pitbull Terrier stands at about 17-21 inches with an average weight range of 30-60 pounds. They typically come in colors such as black, white, fawn, brown, and brindle.

4. American Bully

The American Bully is not an AKC-recognized breed, although it is recognized by the UKC and the American Bully Kennel Club (ABKC). They’re typically 17-19 inches in height, typically weighing 50-70 pounds.

These well-rounded dogs need to be well-trained. That training enhances their intelligence, helping them to be good-natured and affectionate.

Not only will they love you and your family members, but you can also expect American Bullies to bond with other people you approve of.

Athletic dogs like these aren’t meant to be indoor dogs, so remember to take your Pit Bulls out as often as possible. 

Which Pitbull Color is Right for You?

a pitbull dog standing on a road

First, you should know that it’s perfectly fine to get the Pit Bull color you want. We are only trying to point you in a justified or reasoned direction. 

So, what Pit Bull color is right for you?

While this article features rare Pit Bull colors, there are many other common Pit Bull colors too. All of them can be generalized in some categories based on the color itself, the expected end use of your dog, and the health conditions.

For example, if you want your dog to elevate your image, the Merle Pit Bull dog is ideal. Not everyone has Merle Pit Bulls, and they look absolutely majestic. Any person who sees the dog immediately knows you’ve spent handsomely. 

If you can’t find a Merle Pit Bull, the next best alternative is the blue fawn color. Although relatively less expensive, the coat color definitely represents superiority.

Not everyone can find Merle Pit Bulls. That’s when the spotted or the White Pit Bull comes into the picture. They come close to what the Merle And Blue Fawn Pit Bulls represent but for a much lower price.

If you’re looking for an intimidating dog to keep people away from your yard., darker coat colors such as black are ideal. Black isn’t the only intimidating color though; there are Brown And Red Pit Bulls too. 

However, sometimes, too much intimidation might scare off kids. Maybe you need a good balance between intimidation and friendliness. If so, you can try lighter colors such as liver, tan, seal, and so on. 

Almost all the other colors can be chosen based on their looks, especially the Dual-Colored Pit Bulls. Tri-Colored Pit Bulls are rare and have exceptional aesthetic beauty.

Pitbull colors like these showcase that you know your Pit Bulls and sharpen your public perception.

Fun fact: many Hollywood celebrities own rare colored Pit Bulls just to maintain their image.

However, we do not recommend albino Pit Bulls as they have multiple health complications. While it’s terrific to have a White Pit Bull with blue eyes, their health maintenance requirements are higher.

The bottom line is that you can always get a Pit Bull in whatever color you prefer, but it’s always better to know that there are expert recommendations for different situations.

Other guides and tools you might need when training your dog:


Our conclusion is that all rare Pit Bull colors represent majestic dogs. All you need to know is the list of the available rare Pitbull colors and what works best for you.

That’s exactly what you have finished reading.

Pit bulls are one of the most sought-after and resourceful creatures that will protect and love you as if their lives depended on it. You’re lucky to have so many coat colors to choose from, including these rare colors.

Now, it’s just a matter of choosing the perfect color(s) for your needs and bringing that lucky Pit Bull home. 


No, the American Staffordshire Terrier is a Pitbull type but not necessarily the same as all Pitbulls, as Pitbull is an umbrella term for multiple types of dogs.

The most popular rare Pit Bull color is a fair tie between the Blue Fawn and the Blue Fawn Brindle.

The most common colors in a Pitbull are black, red, and brindle.”

Yes, pitbulls are legal in the United States. However, some cities and municipalities have specific breed restrictions or bans, so it’s important to check local regulations.

The rarest Pitbull color is Merle. However, due to its rarity and potential health concerns, major kennel clubs worldwide have rejected this color.

The Merle Pitbull is the most expensive rare color, with prices reaching up to $30,000.

Yes, naturally Pitbulls change color as they leave puppyhood.
