    Lyza is currently 14 weeks old and only 12 pounds. She may be 5-6 inches in the withers and she is very lean. I've been looking at the ABKC shows on Youtube and all of those dogs just seem either overweight or extremely thick.

    Lyza will never be like them, and I refuse to have an overweight dog, but I really want to get her into the show circuit. Do y'all think she will stand a chance in the ABKC showring being lean???

    I don't know the ABKC showring, but I'd imagine leaner dogs would have a chance in the Classic division.... But not all bullies are thick just behavior they're fat. So there may be an issue, but like I said, I don't know the ring that well.

    But! American Bullies really don't "pop" until they get much older. So it's best to wait and see how she matures to judge whether or not she'd do well :)

    Hi Missy! We've had ABKC events in SA and from the dogs I've seen there that compete Lyza would be amazing!!! American Bullies are becoming more popular in SA. [​IMG] as far as I know these are the various classes! This is our pups mom and she's a champ! Think Lyza would dominate she's gorgeous!!!! [​IMG]

    Hi Missy we're in South Africa sorry always use SA out of habit (cringe) Lyza and Ty both look fantastic!!! I've seen Bullies at the show who are only lean muscle!! It depends what type they are as well. [​IMG] this is our pups dad Maddox he comes from the Razor Edge line he's a gorgeous dog and very muscular! [​IMG] here's mom and dad. Caiden, our pup, is very muscular at 13 weeks already but she's lean at the same time ( if that makes sense) I honestly am no expert but I think your dogs look fantastic!! I know if you do want Bullies to "pop" you can get Bully Stack and then let them play with car tyres. I just don't think it's necessary though[​IMG][​IMG]

    im not and expert but I wouldn't say she was an AM Bully at all. I know they take time to widen out but they also have some features that are there from and early age, one being bone density . Why not show in the UKC as APBT?

    Why show as an APBT if the dog is an AmBully?? :blink:

    I thought my post showed my view on that , I am not saying anything negative about the dog but I don't see American bully with the pics at 11 months of age.

    That's fine. The dog's pedigree shows that she's an AmBully, not an APBT. So why would she show her as an APBT when she's not?

    I read the pedigree as a mix of APBT and AM Bully , They have all been UKC APBT at some point. The mother came from a kennel that breeds pit bulls or at least that's what the kennel name implies . Just like anything its a toss up on what genetics will come through. I had an AM Bulldog that was performance when he matured , then I got one with same Sire bred to different female and he turned out to be a super bully.

    if you are talking about showing her, you might want to go for the standard class though she isn't that bully. your girl would be considered small even for a classic and it's not her height it's her body type. the only two classes you have to show her in, if you want to show her, is classic and standard.

    I don't think she will even make it good in classic.For a bully, she is extremely small.

    I would put her on a high calorie diet with high protein,fat and no grain and she what she looks like .If she doesn't put any size on or mature more she has very small genetics.

    You can't make a poodle into a bully, a bully turns into a bully on it's own with food,genetics,and age.I never seen a bully at that age weigh that low.

    Usually, at 2 years old you know what there going to look like fully mature.If the the dog has good blood,then you need to trust it.
