Is it like freakishly short? Because APBTS should be rather small short dogs.

She isn't freakishly short, but I would say she is about 2 to 3 inches shorter at the shoulder than the Average female pit. And she is very stocky. The point of this post is I am wondering if taller dogs have a leverage advantage over shorter dogs, or is shorter legs an advantage. Thanks for any advice.

Advantage on what? If you were a bit more specific some of us could answer your question. Weiner dogs have shorter legs so they can burrow down the holes and catch whatever they are supossed to hunt. Labradores have longer legs because they do a lot of retrieving, running and swimming. Do you get what I am saying?

At weight pull.. This is a weight pull section. The op is asking if there is a difference in short legged dogs vs long legged dogs.

I think it would be obvious that I am talking about weight pulling since this thread is about weight pulling. So, are short legged pitbulls at an disadvantage at WEIGHT PULLING against long legged pitbulls?

i would think at a advantage since the center of balance/muscle control is closer to the ground and pulling on a object with wheels, like a train or somthing....i duno im

disadvantage.

You take two dogs in the same class, both equal, the longer legged dog will usually out pull the short legged dog. The longer legs give more reach to the dog.

Think about it this way, if you are trying to pull or leverage something, is it easier to do with a short rope or a long one?

Was going to say something similar. Leg equals leverage. You take that away, the dog will have to work against its own shortcomings (no pun intended) to do the job.
