Black & White Pitbull Temperament

Black and white Pitbbuls have the same temperament as any other Pitbull and tend to be playful, active, loving, and stubborn. Known for athletic prowess and becoming easily bored, Pitbulls need plenty of mental and physical stimulation to keep them happy and content. 

Black & White Pitbull Size

American Pitbull Terriers are usually around 17–21 inches in height, and 30–60 pounds in weight. Keep in mind that many Pitbulls are mixed breeds, and their sizes can vary drastically between individuals.

Where Can You Get a Black & White Pitbull?

You can find black and white pitbulls at almost every shelter and rescue throughout the U.S., and these dogs are often at higher risk of euthanasia due to lower demand. Because black and white are common colors for Pitbulls, they aren’t considered as desirable and may be more likely to face neglect or be surrendered to shelters. 

If you happen to be looking for a black and white Pitbull, it’s your lucky day, we guarantee there will be at least one or two at your local shelter. 

If you are searching for a black and white Pitbull puppy, be sure to do extensive research before buying. Remember that Pitbulls are a breed vulnerable to mistreatment and that supporting reputable breeding programs can help to support the future of the breed.
