31 Playful Pit Bull Mixes – The Ultimate Pitbull Mix Guide

Pit Bull mixes are some of the most popular mutt dogs in the world.
Written by Richard Jeng

It’s no secret, Pit Bulls receive a lot of bad press for being “dangerous dogs.” However, there are so many Pit Bull myths which can easily be debunked. On the contrary, this super-energetic breed has earned a well-deserved reputation for courage.

Whatever the myths and myth-makers may say, Pit Bulls are friendly and outgoing dogs that deserve a loving home. If properly trained and socialized, there’s no reason why they wouldn’t be as affectionate as any other dog. This is also true for Pit Bull mixes!

Though Pit Bulls originate from England and Ireland, there is some dispute as to their actual origins. And despite their prevalence in America, the American Pit Bull Terrier is currently not recognized by the American Kennel Club.

What’s a Pit Bull?

Pit Bulls were originally bred for bull baiting, dog fighting and ratting.

The word “pit bull” doesn’t refer to one dog breed. Rather, it refers to a type of dog (read more here) and can be derived from 4 distinct pedigree breeds: American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the American Bulldog.

With that said, Pitbulls are typically medium-sized dogs with muscular bodies. More often than not, they will have cropped ears and can come in a variety of terrier colors. They are compact and dense, with a powerful yet effortless gait.

I’ve had many many pitbulls, and they are THE SWEETEST. All of them thought they were lap dogs and they were never aggressive to anyone – not even other dogs.

– Kmayber (Episode Forums)

Most owners consider their Pit Bulls to be intelligent and friendly, though they can certainly go on their stubborn streaks. Even so, there is a general perception that they are aggressive and prone to attacking strangers.

There is some merit to this, as Pit Bulls are often on the lists of most dangerous dogs. In fact, they’re number 1 for most frequent dog bites. However, this is more likely due to poor training and negligence by the owners rather than the dog itself.

With their strong jaws and strong necks, a Pit bull’s bite can do a lot of damage. Although they top the list for dog bite fatalities, proper socialization, obedience training and a lot of affection can transform them into any other loving family pet.

Best Pit Bull Mixes

We list a few of our favorite Pit bull mixes here. This list could be shorter or longer but we will limit ourselves our 31 favorite Pit mixes. If we’ve missed a mix that deserves to be on this list, let us know in the comments section below!

1. Pit Chow

Parents: Chow Chow x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @hunterchowmix

Pit Chows are born from an American Pitbull Terrier and a Chow Chow. Pit Bulls were involved in bull/bear baiting and dog fighting before those blood sports were banned. Meanwhile, the Chow Chows are ancient Chinese dogs bred for various work.

Pit Chows, the mix of these two breeds, have a range of appearances as they take after both of their parents. They can grow to be 17 to 21 inches in height and weigh anywhere from 30 to 70 lbs. However, they can live an astounding 10 – 15 years!

Regarding personality or temperament, there can be a lot of variation as both the Chow Chow and American Pitbull Terrier have diverse temperaments. Overall, they tend to be sweet dogs that are obedient, though they can be wary of strangers.

2. Pyrenees Pit

Parents: Great Pyrenees x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @apollo_pit_pyrenees

This hybrid of the Great Pyrenees and Pit Bull can take after either parent breeds. However, the Pyrenees Pit is often smaller than the Great Pyrenees, while inheriting the facial characteristics of the Chow Chow parent.

That said, Pyrenees Pits grow to be 21 to 27 inches high and weigh from 60 to 95 lbs. These dogs can have sturdy heads, a solid neck and broad, deep muzzles. Some of the Pyrenees Pits may have single coats, while others may have double coats.

This crossbreed between two powerful canine breeds — both of which have strong natural guarding instincts – is loyal and protective. They are also likely to inherit the independent nature and stubbornness from the Pit Bull side.

3. Springer Pit

Parents: Springer Spaniel x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @kingmilito4

The Springer Pit is a mix of an English Springer Spaniel and an American Pitbull Terrier. They are medium dogs with short to medium-length hair. Springer Pit coats can come in a variety of colors such as black, white, blue, brindle or a combination.

These dogs are muscular and compact with strong legs and really strong jaws. Plus, they’re high energy dogs and require a lot of activity to dissipate all that energy. They tend to inherit distinctive Pit Bull qualities, such as the face and ears.

However, Springer Pits are smart, easily trained and affectionate. They’re truly people-loving and oriented dogs. But don’t leave them by themselves for long periods of time, as they can develop anxiety and exhibit destructive behaviors.

4. Greybull Pit

Parents: Greyhound x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @thor_thepitmix

The Greybull Pit is a splendid combination of the Pit Bull Terrier and the Greyhound. They often have the elongated body of the Greyhound, but have the overall appearance of a Pit Bull. Still, there’s a lot of room for physical variation.

Greybull Pits grow to be 17 to 30 inches and weigh 30 to 85 lbs. The wide range in size often will depend on which parent they take more from. All we can say is, the Pit side brings in more heft and durability into their frames.

The Greybull Pit should be an integral part of the family and not left alone. In the right loving environment, they’ll provide plenty of entertainment and companionship. But because of their strong prey drive, they’re not recommended for homes with cats.

5. Bordeaux Pitbull

Parents: Bordeaux Mastiff x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @a_beautiful_disaster86

The Bordeaux Pitbull is a hybrid of an ancient large dog breed, known as the Bordeaux Mastiff, and the Pit Bull. Both parent breeds are known as “molossers,” which are dogs characterized by their strength and solid, sturdy bodies.

However, the two parents vary greatly in looks. While the Pit Bull has tight skin, the Dogue de Bordeaux has wrinkly skin that hangs loose. So, your Bordeaux Pitbull will likely have skin that is anywhere in between, though they could go either way.

Pit Bulls are deceivingly intelligent and obedient. On the other hand, the Bordeaux may be a very stubborn in the training department. And because they’re so powerful, their interactions with kids will need to be carefully supervised.

6. Akita Pit

Parents: Akita Inu x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @cleoakitamix

The Akita Pit is a cross of the loyal Akita Inu with an equally devoted Pit Bull. So is it really a surprise that you’ll end up with a loving, loyal and courageous dog? With similar qualities, the two parents mesh together better than you’d expect.

Akita Pits grow to be 16 to 22 inches in height and weigh 30 to 66 lbs with a similar build to that of the Pit Bull. They will often have short, dense fur that lie flat along the dog’s body. Given the parent’s genes, expect a muscular, strong and agile dog.

These Pit mixes are surprisingly good with children, thanks to the Akita’s affinity towards kids. In the home, they’re obedient and can be easy to trained with a firm and consistent owner. They have dominant personalities, so pack-leadership is key.

7. Alaskan Pit Bull

Parents: Alaskan Malamute x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @broookieebearr

This mixed breed combines the strength and stamina of the Alaskan Malamute with the Pit Bull Terrier’s loyalty and playfulness. But what makes them even more attractive is that they’re very healthy with few chronic health problems.

Alaskan Pit Bulls can be 16 to 26 inches tall and weigh 60 to 80 lbs. And despite their spitz dog heritage, Alaskan Pit Bulls have a relatively easy-to-maintain coat. However, they’ll likely still end up with double coats, so grooming is needed.

Alaskan Pit Bulls make fine family dogs that are eager for both outdoors activities and calmly lounging on the couch with family members. These dogs are confident, bold and independent. So, be firm and provide them with some alone time.

8. Shepherd Pit

Parents: German Shepherd x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @grom_themixedpup

The Shepherd Pit is the result of crossbreeding the courageous German Shepherd with a Pit Bull Terrier. Though these hybrids were originally developed in the early 2000’s, they’ve been growing in popularity and it’s easy to see why.

Shepherd Pits combine the intelligence and loyalty of the German Shepherd with the tenacity and fearlessness of the Pit Bull. On paper, this seems like the recipe for the ultimate guard dogs. And, they really are great watchdogs and guardians.

Because both parent dog breeds have reputations for being aggressive, the Shepherd Pit is a dog for experienced owners. They aren’t the most kid-friendly dogs, but do better with older kids. They’ll need a lot of socializing with children around.

When they’re playing, Beagle Pits are high energy and full of stamina. However, they’re likely to be friendly, loving, playful and protective of their family members. They make top companions but need enough exercise to stay happy.

10. Staffy Bull Pit

Parents: Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @summertasmin29

This mix of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the American Pit Bull Terrier is the ultimate pit bull hybrid. However, they are rare because they’re mainly products of unintentional crossbreeding. Even so, they make great dogs.

Thanks to both parent breeds, the Staffy Bull Pit is large and stocky. These two parent breeds are more similar than you think. In fact, both the Staffordshire and the American Pit trace their ancestry to the same old style English Bulldogs.

English Bulldogs were crossbred with Terrier dogs to add qualities such as courage, which made the bull-and-terrier dogs excel at controlling and fighting bulls (often to the death). Today, the Staffy Bull Pit is more about love than fights.

11. Pit Heeler

Parents: Blue Heeler x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @berryaka

The Pit Heeler is a designer dog breed developed by crossbreeding an American Pit Bull Terrier with a Blue Heeler – otherwise known as the Australian Cattle Dog. This hybrid inherits all the best qualities of each parent.

From the heeler side, expect the hyper personalities to shine through. While the Pit Bull can be playful, the heeler is hard working. As such, it’s best if you can provide these mixes with a job in the family – such as guarding the home.

Hybrid dogs like as Pit Heelers are so new that there is insufficient information available about their behavior, appearance, temperament or other qualities. Though they may have a strong prey drive that needs to be tamed through training and socialization.

12. Pug Pit

Parents: Chinese Pug x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @dexter.puppington

The Pug Pit is not the most obvious Pit mix. These unusual hybrids combine the laid-back and silly Pug with the strong American Pit Bull Terrier. It’s likely they will be short and stocky dogs with a dense but smooth coat.

Despite the Pit Bull genetics, the Pug Pit is surprisingly adaptable to all types of environments. They’re good apartment dogs, but also thrive in a home with a fenced yard. Pug Pits require a lot of exercise to remain healthy, especially if you live in an apartment.

But if they inherit the Pug’s propensity to be brachycephalic, you’ll need to keep their exercise in check. Still, they are highly intelligent mutts and can be very protective of the family. In other words, they’ll have the territorial instincts of the Pit Bull.

13. Border Collie Pit

Parents: Border Collie x Pit Bull mix

via Instagram: @marshall_dairy

This mix of the Border Collie and the American Pit Bull Terrier is a new hybrid. Both parent dog breeds are equally sturdy and healthy, so expect the same for the Border Collie Pit. But since both parents are energetic dogs, they’ll need lots of exercise too!

The Border Collie Pit has all the qualities that make a wonderful family pet: alert, intelligent and loyal with high energy levels. It’s worth noting that Border Collie Pits tend to inherit the moderate levels of “mouthiness” thanks to the Pit side.

They can grow to be 18 to 24 inches tall and weigh 34 to 58 lbs. And although they’re medium-sized mixes, they get along great with kids, but not so much with other dogs. With cats, they can potentially see them as prey too.

Parents: Welsh Corgi x Pit Bull mix

Corgi Pits will likely inherit a strong prey drive, in addition to the Corgi’s herding instincts. So, obedience training and socialization is required as early on as possible. Otherwise, it’s likely the dogs may try to nip at your heels!

These pit mixes are always cheerful and happy. They can be a little competitive at times, but it’s all in fun spirit. Many owners describe their Corgi Pits as comical dogs with a great sense of humor. But the best part is they don’t bark much!

Parent breeds of the Bullboxer Pits are intelligent and responsive, but also a little stubborn. That being said, Bullboxer Pits will likely possess same temperaments and require a confident owner. Without a firm hand, they’ll try to establish dominance over the pack.

Parents: Patterdale Terrier x Pit Bull mix

No, the Pocket Pitbull isn’t a “miniature Pit Bull,” though they’re very close. Rather, these mixes are actually a cross between the Pit Bull Terrier and Patterdale Terrier. And as you can guess, there’s a lot of confusion with this hybrid.

Breeders will often cross the American Pit Bull Terriers with dogs such as French Bulldogs or Boston Terriers and call those Pocket Pitbulls. They’re still excellent pit mixes, but they’re not true Pocket Pit Bulls.

Pocket Pitbulls have powerful broad heads and jaws, as inherited from Pit Bulls. However, they may have a more wedge-shaped skull and narrower muzzle. And despite being called “pocket dogs,” they’re sneaky athletic and agile.

These dogs look fierce – there’s no denying this. But despite their appearance, they’re actually gentle giants – just like the Great Danes! They’re big dogs, but that won’t stop them from trying to be lap dogs. They can be the best cuddle buddies too.

Rottweilers are known for their guarding ability, with high intelligence and controlled protective instincts. As such, the Pitweiler is the same. From the Pit Bull side, these hybrid dogs retain the clownish personality to make for an entertaining companion.

Parents: Siberian Husky x Pit Bull mix

A Pitsky is relatively easy to groom, though they are not hypoallergenic dogs and do shed.
via Instagram: @luna_the_pitsky13

The Pitsky is one of the most popular Pit Bull mixes, crossbreeding the Siberian Husky and Pit Bull Terrier. However, they’re sometimes crossed with the Alaskan Husky. Either way, these dogs are beautiful and often inherit the Husky’s exotic eyes.

Pitskies may inherit the short, single-layer coat of the American Pit Bull or the longer, double-layer coat of the Husky. Double-coated Pitskies means more shedding! However, that doesn’t mean they worse dogs.

The Old Anglican takes after the American Pit Bull. However, the square face with loose skin flaps on the muzzle resembles a Bulldog. Because of their short, smooth and soft fur coat, they are much happier living in warmer climate.

Old Anglicans are loyal, loving, affectionate and playful most of the time. As a result, they’re wonderful around kids and other dogs. Plus, they’re durable enough to withstand the rough play of children. Just make sure they get a lot of exercise!

Bred from the even-tempered Cane Corso and the Pit Bull Terrier, this hybrid strikes the perfect balance in temperament. While Pit Bulls are energetic and lively, the Corso is more reserved and stable. The mesh in personalities go together well.

These dogs can weigh around 50 pounds, though it’s unsurprising given the solid frames of the two parents. Because both the Corso and Pit Bull are muscular and athletic, these dogs will be the same. As such, they’re excellent guard dogs.

The Pit Corso tends to inherit the calm and collect personalities of the Corso parent. They also do very well with obedience training. All in all, there’s very few things we don’t like with this mix. They’re great companions that don’t need much maintenance.
