Pitbulls are very popular in America. They have been since their first appearance in the United States in the late 1800’s. There were only two breeds of dog that could match them: Bulldogs and Mastiffs. However, with the advent of television, they found new popularity among Americans because they looked like characters from TV shows such as “The Jetsons” or “Beverly Hills 90210”. Today there are many different types of pit bulls available for purchase. Some are purebred, some are mixes between breeds, and others are mixed breeds. Most of these dogs look similar but there is one type which looks very different. These dogs have been called “Ghost Bully” because they have no visible markings whatsoever except for black eyes and white noses. Their coats vary greatly in length and thickness, ranging from being almost completely hairless to having thick fur coats with multiple colored tips at various points along the coat. Many of these dogs are very energetic and love to run around. Others prefer to stay indoors most of the time. Some even have grayish-white markings down their backs and necks.
There are several theories as to why some dogs develop black eyes while others do not. One theory is that it may be due to a genetic defect in the eye itself, or perhaps a problem with how the iris works when light enters it. These defects would cause the eyes to appear pure black, as opposed to brown or some other color. Another theory is that the “Ghost Bully” is not a pit bull at all, but rather a different type of dog altogether.
Some have even suggested that the dogs are in fact Basenjis, which are known for their lack of markings and short coats except for the bushy tail seen in most photographs. However, there has been no concrete evidence to support this claim. It has also been suggested that the dogs may be a hybrid between a pure Basenji and a pure American Pit Bull Terrier. However, there is no evidence to support this either.
Genetics Of Tricolor Pitbulls
The reason why the pitbull is so popular, besides their reputation as an aggressive dog, is because of their wide range of colors. There are multiple different colors of pitbulls, but these are the most common ones.
Fawn: Also known as the “fawntan” or “fallow” pattern, the fawn pitbull has tan or brown fur with a white underbelly and feet. This is one of the most common color types.
Brindle: Also known as the “speckle” pattern, these pitbulls have dark colored stripes on a light colored fur. This is also quite common.
Black: Also known as the “mantle” pattern, this pitbull has dark fur peppered or striped with tan patches.
Tri color: Also known as the “tricolor” or “triclur” pattern, this pitbull has tan fur mottled or striped with black patches or vice versa.
Whites: Also known as the “blanket” pattern, this pitbull has white fur peppered or striped with dark patches.
The best way to predict the color of your pitbull is to look at your dog’s parents. The reason why there are so many different patterns available is because each one is a dominant gene. Each parent can carry a different combination of these genes. For example, one parent could be fawn, while the other parent could be tri-colored.
This creates contrast between the parents and results in a tri-colored pitbull. When it comes to color genetics, there are two things which must be understood:
1. Each pattern is a dominant gene.
Each pitbull is born with one of these genes, or traits, while lacking the other.
2. Some colors are more dominant than others.
This means it takes less for a parent to pass on these traits.
The most common combination of parents can result in multiple different types of pitbulls. Each different pitbull has their own unique set of markings.

Pit Bull Facts
The American Pit Bull Terrier has a lot more personality than most people give them credit for. They are highly intelligent, friendly, playful, and energetic animals. They love spending time with their owners and are always eager to please. This makes them very easy to train.
Despite their intimidating appearance, the Pit Bull is a sensitive breed that bonds very closely with it’s owner. If you treat them well, they will treat you well. If you don’t, and bully them or hurt them in any way, they will not forget it. Pit Bulls respond very badly to any sort of abuse, and can become extremely hostile and aggressive dogs. This is the main reason that they get such a bad reputation. If they are treated well and raised properly, Pit Bull’s make great dogs for first time owners.
The Pit Bull is a very intelligent breed. They are ranked fifth in obedience among all dog breeds, and are capable of learning commands after only one repetition. This makes them an extremely easy to train breed, although training should always be done in a fair and even manner, without any acts of intimidation or violence. Pit Bulls respond very well to reward based training, and will continue to try to please you after it has been taught the command.
Pit bulls are known to be very powerful dogs that are capable of doing a great deal of harm, but this does not mean they are aggressive by nature. The Pit Bull is often a victim of media stereotyping which portrays them as mindless monsters. In reality, Pit bulls have been bred for generations for their loyalty and gentle personalities. The American Kennel Club writes that the “pit bull is a warm, friendly and companionship seeking dog with people. They are very good with children and tend to be good with other animals as long as they have been raised with them”. It is up to the owner to teach their dog proper behavior, and pit bulls are extremely receptive to this sort of training.
Despite their intimidating appearance and muscular body structure, the Pit Bull is a gentle breed that is actually insecure and frightened around strangers. Although Pit Bulls are naturally wary around strangers, they are affectionate with their owners and enjoy spending time with them. They are not aggressive towards other dogs unless they are mistreated or trained to be that way by their owners. If Pit bull’s are properly trained they can get along with cats, other dogs, and children.
Pit Bull’s are extremely loyal to their owners, and make great guard dogs. They are prone to aggression when in the presence of a threatening stranger, and will defend themselves and their loved ones if necessary. Pit Bulls have been historically used for guarding families and farms, as well as for dog fighting. They make great guard dogs, as they have strong natural instincts to protect their home and family.
Despite these facts, it is extremely uncommon for a Pit Bull to turn on it’s owner or family. Pit bulls are generally obedient and will only turn aggressive if the owner wants it to. They can sense a threat much better than the average human, and will act upon it.
The aggression that has historically been linked to Pit Bulls is beginning to subside, due to changing media views and the rise of dog fighting derbies. Dog fighting derbies rose to popularity around the 1970s, which is when the Pit Bull really began to receive a bad reputation. Dog fighting derbies are very inhumane, cruel and violent, and Pit Bulls were specifically bred and trained to be vicious fighters. Although Pit Bulls are still sometimes used for dog fighting, their reputation has become so terrible that many animal shelters will euthanize any Pit Bull that comes through their door.
This is despite the fact that a Pit Bull that has been through fight training is more likely to be extremely docile and submissive, due to the abuse they have taken during training.
Pit Bulls are extremely loving and affectionate animals, just as any other dog is. It all comes down to how they are raised and trained. If a Pit Bull is brought up in a loving home and treated with care and respect, it will have a much more trusting and friendly attitude than that of a dog that has been trained to kill from a young age.
The media has greatly contributed to the “bad reputation” of Pit Bulls, and it is time for this to change.
It’s time to take a stand against breed discrimination. It is time that these animals receive the recognition they deserve. It is time that we undo the wrongs that humans have committed against these animals for centuries.
