Is thier a way to tell if my pit is mixed. we were told she was pure red nose but her nose is turning a blue color but w
me and my husband are not sure if our year old pit bull is pure breed red nose or if she may be red and blue nose mixed. due to the fact her pretty red nose is getting darker more of a blue color and shes getting spots on the roof of her mouth does that mean she could be mixed??? need to know asap please?

Red nose and blue nose are not breeds, they are just terms made up to trick you into spending more money on a crappy bred dog. If not done already, please spay your dog. Also, if you have concerns about pigment changes please see your veterinarian.

"Red nose" and "blue nose" are descriptors, not "types" of pit bulls or individual breeds. A pit bull is a pit bull is a pit bull. People who advertise or try to tell you that these are somehow "different breeds" is selling you a line.

Red nose and blue nose are two different lines within the APBT breed (as I understand it), not separate breeds.

probably a mix, not saying your dogs is not a pitt, but depends if the parents were both one type, like if both parents were red nose, the puppys will most likely be. same with blue. Its all about genetics. My pitt Toni has a black nose

It's just a different nose color in the breed. There's not another breed of Pit Bull. There's similar breeds to the Pit Bull like the American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and English Bull Terrier.
A lot of breeders will sell their Pit Bulls for thousands and thousands of dollars because they think they have a "rare" Pit Bull but they really don't. There's different colors of Pit Bulls ranging from blue, black, red, tri-colored, brindle, white, chocolate/liver, solid, merle, etc.
Pit Bulls can have red, blue, pink and black noses. There's only one breed of American Pit Bull Terrier.
Here's some good sites to check out about Pit Bulls -
Make a profile for her with pictures and we might be able to tell better! Like everyone else said, "red nose" and "blue nose" are just colors. They're pit bulls either way. Many puppies develop deeper pigmentation (darker color skin, spotting) as they grow up, that's normal.
And why "need to know asap"? Would you seriously take her back or dump her at the pound if she's not purebred? Would you not love her anymore?
