Theoretically yes two pockets should produce a pocket, but genetics are a crazy thing. It is not unheard of to breed a pocket to a standard or a standard to extreme. A lot of breeders add extreme class bullies to their breeding program to add bone to their smaller dogs, but still can keep the correctness; however, only a small percentage of bully breeders know what they are doing. If you have a 16 inch dog who is 85lbs that isn't necessarily the breeder's fault. A lot of owners put weight on their dogs to make them "bullier," and it is evident that most don't know bully doesn't mean fat. All puppies are shown as standard in the ABKC until the age of one since that is pretty much as tall as they will grow.So breeders selling "pocket's" really don't have any way to ensure that they will actually be that size? Breeders should work harder at establishing a standard and producing that standard. This is the problem of breeding for color and looks.
