I've always thought pit bulls were about the same height as the bigger dogs like retreivers, etc. But I've seen pictures where they look a bit shorter - is this standard? Or are there different types of pits, like a mini and a standard?
Pit Bulls are all different heights and weights depending on lineage.

Thanks:0) Pit Bulls like any other breed do have a standard but the standard varies depending on which registry the dog is registered with. Pit Bulls are registered with the ADBA (American Dog Breeders Association) and the UKC (The United Kennel Club) but the interesting thing is the ADBA and the UKC standard is different from one another. Of course there are other registries that Pit Bulls can be registered with the ADBA and the UKC are just widely recognized and respected.
I have a dog book that I am now disappointed with! It doesn't have pit bulls in it (I told my sister-in-law she should adopt one or a mix from the pound and we were looking them up). It also says dogs enjoy chocolate as a treat. WHAT?! Kinda makes you question the rest of the book. :/
It's "The ultimate encyclopedia of dogs: dog breeds and dog care" by Dr. Peter Larkin and Mike Stockman. It's one of those books where they have one on dogs, cats, horses, etc. and they were all bargain books at Borders so we got it because it has great pictures of doxies. :) Then I read the treats section of what kinds of foods are available as treats (bones, biscuits, rawhides, etc) and there's a picture of chocolates with a caption of "Very nearly every dog loves chocolate." No mention of it being poisonous anywhere that I could find in the book.
