Ah, the topic of the blue American Pit Bull Terrier. It is quite a controversial topic and a topic I have been wanting to touch for quite awhile. I went on my own mission to find out whether or not there's a blue pit bull or not, and with the amount of dog-men that I have talked to and the amount of research I have gathered up in the years, there's no such thing as a blue pit bull.
You question this interesting theory when you look at dogs like Bellon Club's Soga who is supposedly a "game-dog." There's many that say that Bellon Club's Soga isn't a pit bull and I'd have to agree with that statement. I honestly do not believe Bellon Club's Soga is a bulldog. I will say that Soga has a lot of Staffie blood in her and that she isn't an American Pit Bull Terrier. Just take a look at her pedigree, and notice that her pedigree has a lot of "unknowns". Now, while "unknown" doesn't mean the lineage is unknown, it can simply mean the pedigree isn't finished, but with a pedigree with all those "unknowns" on such a well-known dog, wouldn't you think they'd finish the pedigree? Obviously not.
I look at American Pit Bull Terriers of today and have yet to come across a blue one. I see way too many blue American Bullies (believe me when I say this, they're literally everywhere), but not American Pit Bull Terriers because the blue color doesn't exist in this breed.
If you've never seen or heard of Bellon Club's Soga, here is a picture (pedigree listed below picture):
I could name multiple "blue pit bulls" and point you out to their pedigrees but how does a breed of dog that isn't know to throw blues, throw blues? There's many blue dogs listed on the APBT Pedigree Database, but if you research and look at the pictures of the dogs, they appear as though they are clearly not pit bulls.
I look at bloodlines such as Greyline and Watchdog and I honestly can't refer these two lines as American Pit Bull Terrier lines because in my opinion, they are simply not that.
The thing that really pisses us off is that the majority of so called 'educators' (you know who you are) who say that "pit bulls do come in blue, but it is very rare." Okay, let me stop you right there. When I see the word "rare" and "pit bull" in the same sentence, I call bull-shit. So, then the so called 'educators' (bull-shitters) post the pedigree on these dogs... they're Am. Staffs/Pitterstaffs, not APBTs. It really pisses us off that 'educators' who are out there to supposedly 'educate' others about what an APBT is, continue calling their dogs APBTs when they're Am. Staffs or Pitterstaffs, and even refer to blue Am. Staffs/Pitterstaffs as APBTs, right when the pedigree says differently. If the pedigree says Am. Staff/Pitterstaff, it is what it is. Thing is, Pitterstaff/Am. Staff blood will NEVER be APBT blood.
The topic of blue game dogs is quite controversial and confusing. Take Bellon's Club Soga for example, she's not a bulldog but she's known to be supposedly "game". I honestly think it's nearly impossible for two purebred American Pit Bull Terriers (bulldogs) to throw blue dogs, especially blue game dogs.
Now, here we go getting into the technical stuff. The APBT and the American Staffordshire Terrier originally started out as the same breed. They quickly became completely separate breeds, one being bred for show, the other being bred for dog fighting. So, people generally ask "then where did the blue color come from then?" Well, that is an interesting question. So far, the American Staffordshire Terrier and the American Pit Bull Terrier are COMPLETELY SEPARATE BREEDS OF DOGS - they are NOTHING alike in anyway, shape or form. They have different traits, characteristics and bloodlines - all set them apart from each other. I'm pretty certain the American Staffordshire Terrier also has a health-issue that the American Pit Bull Terrier can not get. Here we go messing with genetics.... there has never once been a blue American Pit Bull Terrier in the history of American Pit Bull Terriers. If I can find the right scientific-based articles, you can change genetics. There was a study done on rats, where they were successfully able to change the genetics of the rats, they were able to somehow change the coat-color genetics. You'd start out with a white rat and end up with black rats. If you think about it..... maybe it'll make sense. Once you start breeding for show, shit happens.
Examples of blue dogs listed on APBT Pedigree Database:

http://www.apbt.online-pedigrees.com/modules.php?name=Public&file=printPedigree&dog_id=195442 (not a bulldog and notice that some of the bottom is unknown)
http://www.apbt.online-pedigrees.com/modules.php?name=Public&file=printPedigree&dog_id=111661 (not a bulldog and notice that most of the pedigree on this dog is unknown)
http://www.apbt.online-pedigrees.com/modules.php?name=Public&file=printPedigree&dog_id=122160 (not a bulldog and notice the top is all unknown)
Most blue dogs are going to have unknown ancestors in their pedigrees which makes it impossible to actually identify if they really are (in fact), American Pit Bull Terriers. This being said and with everything that I have stated and talked about regarding blue dogs, it has come to my attention that there's no such thing as a blue bulldog. I have even heard of other bulldog owners and breeders who have also discussed this specific topic saying that there's no such thing as a blue bulldog and that the dog is either Staffy or Bully and with this being said, or has Staffy or Bully blood in him. I'd have to agree completely.
This is just my opinion on this.
