I have a Pit Bull Terrier that is 5 months. I got him from a friend but he never said what breed his parents were (Brindle, Bluenose, etc). I have his papers but they don't say much about his parents.Where would I go to find out this information? Thank you for any help you can offer.

Are you serious??  You say you have papers on your puppy but you don't know how to research the parents/lineage?  Does your friend know anything about the dog "you got" him from?  YOU and your FRIEND are the reason this breed (if your dog is an apbt) is undergoing such scrutiny and harm.  Do us all a favor and study, research and take tons of time to learn about this breed before you take another step.

Blue, Brindle, Rednose, are color designations.  You are wanting to know the breeding of your dog.  You will need to send the certificate off and get a 4 or 7 generation pedigree and that will give you the information you are looking for.  "Jeep" dogs will have "Jeep" in their ancestory which will be seen on the pedigree.  To really research the history, get a 14 generation pedigree and that will tell you what "old school" dogs (jeep, colby, old family rednose) etc are in your dog.  If your dog is UKC or ADBA registered, you should have no problem getting the pedigree.  If it's through some other registry you may not be able to get an accurate history of your dog.
