    Barney was a brindle dog with white markings. I've never seen a color picture of him where he looks blue.

    Read this: http://www.richardfstratton.com/goin...ndbluedogs.htm

    I thought Barney was black until I read this.

    BTW, is there any game lines left that are based on him or his bloodline?

    It isnt clear what color he was labeled in that read. However it does group him blue dogs because they thought that a black nose signified the dog being a Staffy and Going Light Barney had a black nose as did all blues.


    Thanks for sharing the link though

    The pictures I have of Barney, which are as many as I can get my hands on, all depict him as being brindle with white markings. I'm not sure what everyone else is looking at.

    Richard Stratton also has a few books out, and I believe that one of them mentions Barney as a blue dog as well. I know that this particular article does not directly mention him as a blue, but he really was a blue brindle until they died him black. If I remember correctly, Richard Stratton's Book of the APBT shows him as both colors in the book. Also, in his book, World of the American Pit Bull Terrier, there are multiple pictures of him, one is even color and shows him black. I'll look through my stack of books and try to find it for ya.

    now i seen Barney many times in person and to me he always looked like a brindle dog with some nice white markings.don't know where the blue thing came from though.more than likely to take the man and i use that term loosely that owned him down a notch.but here is no denying that he was a great dog.

    Also the blue dogs came from Scotland and were called Blue poll or pauls as they were known, like the old family reds, they were not all blue as was the case of the original old family reds were not all red... My family in Scotland had the poll (pauls) and some old family reds from the province of old family reds in Ireland. The Blue Poll is an extinct breed now but is in the make up of most bully's
