    ok if i measured correctly my dog is 18 inches tall and weighs 45 pounds. I am curious as to what class in the abkc she would be in. I have heard of the classic, xl, xxl, and pocket classes but dont know the standards for each class. I was just wondering because she fits in the apbt height and weight catagory but she is smaller than all the ambullies i have met personally. she is often called a mini pit by folks around here kind of funny but anyway answers are appreciated.

    By height alone, she is not pocket. Pocket is 17" and under. I would say then that she is STANDARD, standard class if I am not mistaken is 17.1" - 21" or 22".

    BUT, but height and weight she would be CLASSIC.
    CLASSIC class is your dogs who do not weigh near as much as the Ambully.

    Bluestark, with the height and weights so close (for the most part) in the standard class and classic does it come down to how they look? My dogs to me and I'm pretty sure to you are classics, but their heights and weights could fall into the standard. But to me they look more pit bull or amstaff maybe than most, hence a "classic" not a standard. Am I on the right track there or is there more to it than that?

    On the right track. There is no certain weight class of an Ambully. There is however height limits. Basically Trinity is Standard. Nala is Standard. And Dozer is classic. Dozer still has the right height and really the nice head peice, but lacks the weight. However Dozer is 55lbs. So I mean I guess he could be in either, but when you see the competition then you think well he would fit in better in Classic. SO ABKC, still has much work ahead to get the in-betweens figured out.
