For the most part you answered your own questions, not every dog is gonna be show quality. If I have a dog that does not meet the ABKC standard then I'm not going to show it.Manny this is where I guess I get confused for dogs that are am bullies but don't fit the ABKC standard what should they do? Could this dog be shown under the ukc current standards? Because some bullies fall more on the apbt side but by there pedigrees they are not APBT'S so what do you recommend an owner to do in that situation? I can easily spot an adba sytle dog but when dealing with the ukc and ABKC I guess I am confused as to where the line on conformation is drawn as to where the dog should be shown and have a better chance of competing and winning. I do however realize not all dogs are show quality animals.
In my opinion this dog carries more of the UKC APBT breed type than an Am Bully, so I think it would have a better chance in the UKC.
Neuter/Spay and enjoy it as a pet. Its not the end of the world if the dog cannot be shown, you can do agility, dock diving, flyball etc. Lots of positive activities owners can still do with their dog.
