On this site we’ve talked about a wide variety of Pitbulls so far, including Blue Pitbulls, Red Pitbulls, Brindle Pitbulls, and now we’re talking about one of the most popular colors when it comes to Pitbulls, Black Pitbulls.
All in all, these Pitbulls are very much alike in basically everything except their coat colors and a few physical traits here and there.
Their temperaments and characteristics are almost all the same.
As of this writing, Black Pitbulls are the most popular color when it comes to the preference of dog owners, along with Blue Pitbulls coming in second and Red Pitbulls coming in third.
However, with increasing popularity has come mounting pressure and negative reputation, much because of the fact that Black Pitbulls are being used in illegal dog fighting circles and activities. 
This is mainly because of sick minded people that see a potential in putting their much stronger-than-average jaws to unethical use.
Introduction To Black Pitbulls
Black Pitbulls are really just like any other Pitbull dog out there, so please don’t believe the lies that some unethical dog breeders looking to make a quick buck might tell you that Black Pitbulls are a breed of their own.
Black Pitbulls are just Pitbulls that have a coat that’s either all black-colored, or a coat that’s black colored with the chest area being white colored.
This color is basically all what differentiates a Black Pitbull from any other Pitbull, so again please don’t fall into the trap that some unethical breeders try to feed you that Black Pitbulls are a breed of their own.
It’s literally all about the coat color. 
There’s no difference between Black Pitbulls and other Pitbulls when it comes to temperament or personality traits, as they are all Pitbulls and are similar to one another in these departments.
Don’t believe anyone that tells you that Black Pitbulls are more aggressive than other colored Pitbulls, they’re all the same and the only thing that differs is their coat color.
A Quick Note About Black Pitbull’s History
If we have a quick look back at the history of Black Pitbulls (and Pitbulls in general), we notice that these dogs used to be bred mainly for the purpose of being used in dog fights and blood sports, which is plain out sickening and disgusting.
This is one of the main reasons, if not the main one, that there’s a negative reputation around Pitbulls that states that they’re aggressive dogs.
The fact of the matter is that if you bring home a Black Pitbull that was raised in a healthy environment, trained and socialized from a young age, you’ll soon discover that they can be some of the best family dogs ever. 
The other main reason why there’s so much negativity connected to the Pitbull’s name is because of sources that report statistics about dog bites that focus much of their reports on bites coming from Pitbulls.
Much of the focus is on Pitbulls, while there are a bunch of other dog breeds that bite as well, but the focus is pre-planned to demonize Pitbulls. Black Pitbulls are victim of such reports because they are, after all, Pitbulls.
At the end of the day, put any dog that hasn’t been trained and socialized at a young age in the required circumstances, and they will bite.
It’s not just a Pitbull thing, it can happen with any dog breed as well.
A Black Pitbull that has been properly trained and socialized will, just like any other Pitbull that has been properly trained and socialized, be one of the most gentle, affectionate, loving and loyal pets you have ever seen, and ones that will go out of their way and do the impossible to make their owners happy.
Black Pit Bull Health Issues
Just like the case with any other dog breeds, Pitbulls (and Black Pitbulls in particular) are also prone to suffer from specific health problems in their lifetimes more than other dog breeds.
The following list states the most common health problems that Black Pitbulls are prone to suffer from during their lifetimes.
- Hip & Elbow dysplasia
- Cardiovascular disease
To greatly decrease the risk and effects of these health problems on your Black Pitbull, make sure you’re in constant contact with your veterinarian about your Black Pitbull’s healh.
Where Can I Buy A Black Pitbull?
If you’re looking to buy a Black Pit Bull dogs, there are a whole bunch of dog breeders you can choose from because this is one of the most in-demand dog that’s being purposefully bred in today’s time.
Another good thing as well is that since Black Pitbulls are very commonly bred and available among dog breeders and isn’t all that rare, you won’t have to pay a significantly higher price like you would have had you been looking for a less commonly bred dog.
With that being said, you should be careful about one thing when doing business with dog breeders.
Some breeders will attempt to cheat you out of your money by trying to make you believe they have a Black Pitbull for you to buy, while in fact what they have is a Blue Nose Pitbull .
These two dogs have very similarly colored coats, and chances are you won’t be able to tell the difference unless you make an effort to really compare the two.
So, make that extra effort to make sure you’re not cheated out of your money and are getting exactly what you’re paying for!
Generally speaking, you could get a Black Pitbull from breeders at a very cheap price, and you could get a Black Pitbull from breeders at a very expensive price.
It all depends on the quality you’re looking for and the breeder you’re doing business with.
If you have a low budget up to 500$, this could get you a relatively cheap-costing Black Pitbull from many dog breeders that aren’t going to be very high quality.
If you’re looking to get a Black Pitbull from a high-quality dog breeder, then you’re probably looking at a fee of around 1000-2000$, sometimes even up to 5000$ and 10,000$, all depending on the breeder you’re working with and the authenticity of the Black Pitbull and their traits.
