Is My Puppy a Pure Bred Pit Bull?

Is My Puppy a Pure Bred Pit Bull? - black and white puppy on grey rugI was told she was pure bred, but they didn't have any papers showing proof. And I was unable to meet the dad. I was just curious if anyone knows whether she's pure bred Pit Bull or not?

There's a possibility it's a mix but it's too early to tell for sure. You'll want to watch the muscle build in the shoulders and angular features in the face. If you need to know ASAP, an at-home DNA kit would be a good idea!

To be honest with you this is not so easy to tell by looking at a dog. If the person you received the dog from can't produce papers on the dog's blood line, then I would say it is a 50/50 chance the dog is a pure breed. As a puppy grows, they change so much.

Even the color of the fur can change. Your dog photos as far as I can tell does have Pit in him. As for being a full blooded Pit I would count on this one. You can only find out through a DNA test if the dog is full blooded or not.

She looks like a bundle of love and hopefully you did not buy her just because you thought she was a pure bred pit.

  • In the animal world, it is a known fact that no one (not even breeders or vets) can tell by just looking at a dog if it is pure bred.
  • These "experts" can form a very good opinion about the ancestry, but only a true DNA test can accurately supply that information.
  • DNA test kits for dogs are very popular and can be found at many pet stores as well as on line and from your veterinarian.

  • These test kits cost from $50-$300 and the cost is determined by how many breeds are checked but usually, the inexpensive test is all the average pet owner needs.
  • Here is an example of a kit found on line:

  • You should know that a puppy's first year is the time they need to have all of their shots/vaccinations as they are very vulnerable to many diseases that can cause serious problems or even death (parvo).
  • Here is a link that has information and a time line to follow for making sure your puppy has every chance to grow up healthy and strong.
