im pretty sure all the abkc standards are in the bullies 101 section.That also gives a visual for the breed standard of the different classes

http://theabkcdogs.org/breeds/american-bully/standard/ theres the link to the ABKC it explains the diffrences in classes , bully are put in classes judged by height and one class judged by body mass. There is also on there site the registration form , I recommend you register your dog with them as well it caters more to the bully standard, we all have UKC papers for our bullys but the bully really doesnt fit the standard they have set , the ABKC is apparently are closing there books for single registration next year sometime so good to get that in now , besides its only $20 I believe for us residents to register with them.

yea standard is17"-20" for males most dogs fall into that class.Classic class is the same height range but less overall mass and slightly more of the UKC look.Its hard to tell what class the dog actually belongs in till' they are mature.ive heard of dogs really filliin' out after 2.

There are lots of threads I will give you some , but bloodline dtermines what your dog is not looks just so you know , Alot of people think because they have leaner bullys then most that they are therfore an APBT but thats not the case. with the bloodlines you listed your dog is a bully. But have you read into how the bully was created? there is APBT and amstaff blood in there which is why people get so confused and that along with the UKC papers that say APBT it just throws them into huge confusion , usually back yard breeders list there bullys as pitbulls when they sell them as well { I guess it helps sales or something} here are some threads to check out

threre are some posts on here about the history of the APBT you could use the search and look for those , and Im sure you have browsed the bully101 section so I didnt post much on there but checking out the threads on bloodlines like the one labeled razors edge and I believe there is one with grey line you will see some of the original dogs used for the bully and they arent blown out or huge you might be surprised at how they look.

definitely, without a doubt, bully. like others have said, looks dont really say what bloodline your dog is, at least not reliably. the pedigree you posted is of a bully. razors edge, gotti, greyline, ect....all bully lines.

I have a bully that has longer legs than what you normally see... its what they are saying, its all about pedigree not necessarily just what they look like. when i first came here I was asking the same exact questions you are.
