Do blue nose pitbulls shed?
This type of situation with pitbull shedding is all too common for a lot of bully owners.
The love of the breed, but the hate for the shedding of their coat.
It's odd that a short coated breed could actually shed as much as some do.
In the case of most bully breeds the shedding is at least confined to being seasonal.
Some noses fade during the colder months and return to their normal color during the summer months.
This is a condition known as "snow nose" or "winter nose." Certain breeds have noses that go from black to brown or pink as the dog ages.
Contact dermatitis can also cause your dog or cat to lose pigment on the nose.
A dry dog nose can quickly go from bad to worse, drying out and forming crusty scabs that flake off and bleed.
It is a commonly cited fact that if your dog's nose is dry they are sick.
A dry nose doesn't always mean your dog is sick, but it does indicate an underlying issue such as an allergy or irritant.
Dogs have wet noses because some of their tear glands empty into their noses.
Just because the nose is dry does not mean there is something wrong with the tear gland.
If your dog's dry nose is not inflamed or infected, he should be fine, especially if he is eating and playing normally!
If there's a clear nasal discharge from your dog's nose, chances are good it's caused by allergies, by far the most common reason for abnormal nasal secretions in dogs.
A dog's allergy symptoms don't stop at a runny nose; they can also include sneezing, coughing, itchiness, nosebleeds, and breathing problems.
While Pit Bulls are not good guard dogs because they just love people so much, they may intercede if someone threatens "their" humans.
Pit Bulls are great with children.
Pit Bulls are a loyal, people-oriented breed that thrive as part of the family.
They are affectionate with both adults and children.
And, these same dogs that don't shed may just have you put away the lint roller for good.
