|Alva beat me to it. Good job.
To repeat everything that's probably been said and beat that dead horse, a nose color is really just a nose color. There's a breeding line called old family red nose (or something like that, someone has probably mentioned it by now) but beyond that a pit bull is not recognized for his nose. There are terms (red nose, blue nose) but the nose color has nothing to do with the "type" of pit bull or whether he or she would be an ideal working dog or not.
Blue noses are not black. Blue is a bit lighter than black and recognizable when you see it.
I'm going to use my sister's dogs as examples here, as I know she wouldn't mind.
You can see the differences in nose color between them and Lilo.
Should always be remembered that a nose color is literally... just a nose color. Anyone selling a pit bull (or any bully, really) for a higher price than their other puppies based on nose color alone is probably a bad breeder. Likewise, anyone who even feels it necessary to mention nose color is probably not trustworthy. And it should also be noted that they are not terms to describe a type of pit bull. A dog who is red is not automatically a red nose, nor is a blue dog automatically blue nose.
