like mentioned before i dont know how your going to get a accurate set of numbers expecailly since it depends on what you consider a apbt. if your doing a true apbt from old game lines most of us dont have them most are mixed with some kind of amstaff. but here is mine

the height is measured to the top of the wethers by the way.

Bango: 22 months
weight: 53lbs Height:20 inches

Chester: 10 months
weight: 35lbs Height: 17 inches

Remi: 10 months
Weight: 43lbs Height: 17 inches

Houdini: 15 months
Weight: 53lbs Height: 19 inches

Dixie: 16 months
Weight: 38lbs Height: 18 inches

Diamond: 10 months
Weight: 30lbs Height: 15 inches

Tai: 5 years old
Weight: 30lbs Height: 16 inches

My Amstaffs:

Deigo: 6 years old
Weight: 57lbs Height: 17 inches

Yolanda: 2 years old
Weight is 45lbs Height: 18 inches


And of coarse weight can never be right when you have working dogs they will gain and lose muscle which weighs more than fat through the different seasons. Your going to have a hard time getting accurate numbers

i think a 65-85 lb pitbull is ideal. i think as time goes on you will continue to see them get bigger. countries such as china, brazil, russia, pakistan, turkey, afghanistan, and mexico are completely changing the game. with monsters such as kangal, cao, bully kutta, dogos, and presa canarios u'll definitely see a surge in bigger pits.

The American Kennel Club doesn't officially recognize the American Pitbull Terrier as a breed it's rather a mixture of several bully type breeds. The National Kennel Club does however and they state an American Pitbull Terrier should be between 30-60 lbs for a male and 25 - 55 lbs for a female.

i go by adba (don't register with them but i adhere to their conformation standards) and they don't have a weight limit in their conformation standards to my knowledge. a 25-40lb dog couldn't stay on my yard......that's too small.

I personally believe a good size for a well bred pit bull is 40-55 pounds. However, I have seen some good ones as little as 35 pounds and as big as 65 pounds. Anything bigger than 65 in shape is not a pit bull, IMO. To me that draws a red flag. The biggest dog I ever owned was my amstaff Magnus, he was 21 1/2 inches, and 65 fat, in the 50's conditioned. He would look like a giant when I took him to shows and other events. I would never want or need something bigger than that for anything. He was as proven in working sports as you could ever want, as far as I am concerned.

I have found in working dogs for close to twenty years, that big dogs do not have the longevity, nor athletic ability I like. Remember the apbt is supposed to be a medium size dog. 85 pounds is not medium, even 65 is pushing it. When people tell me they want a big pit bull for working, I tell them to get a american bulldog or bandog.

your right, most pitbulls don't go past 65 lbs. catchweight pit bulls do. hog catching pitbulls do. my bloodline is watchdog (large 75-80 lbs)x redboy jocko (45-55 lbs). it doesn't have to be the purest pitbull blood. it gets the job done. those small pitbulls are a thing of the past imho. my pups came out tall, rangy, above average bite, thick bones, long necks, good wrestlers, incredible wind and most of them (7 out of 10) were hot as fire. all the males pups were 65-75 lbs. the females were 50-60 lbs. the new breeds from overseas are getting ready to hit america hard and apbt must get bigger or they will become a memory. some people want the best dog at any weight. a little dog is great if that's what u want but when a big dog is off the leash and comes running my way i don't want to have to worry that i don't have enough time to save my dog.

I have to disagree with you Versatile. I think more ppl want the dogs for the true dogs they were back in the day. I dont think the little ones are a thing of the past at all.

Maybe for bully owners. But Watchdog, isnt a gamebred apbt line, correct me if im wrong.

tell my watchdog he isn't game bred. a lot of watchdog has gone bully, but not all of it. believe that if u want. gamebred is your parents.

ill go out on a limb here and say, that a "pitbull" that is 80lbs, I would venture to say has some blood from another breed bred into it.
