The "borderjack" I know would probably jump 16". I haven't measured her... she's 25 lbs but kinda leggy.

I would think that adding an amstaff would only make them taller? I'm a little confused by that as well.

most of the borderstacks I know jump 16. What I meant by the height thing is that you can add power (for acceleration etc) with out adding height. The few staffies that run (the agility community has been known to turn a blind eye) seem to all run at 16..

yeah it's kind of stupid to involve the otherbreeds' names as it might confuse someone or inform them of the breed history. just look how stupid a name bullterrier is.

Very funny.

Seriously though, these names are ridiculous.

i am sorry but border jack makes perfect sense to me it gives some idea of the breeds involved & therefore some idea size, type & personality. now border stack is a little more difficult and a bit sillier, but what else do you call it if not a mix of the breed names?

I believe the Border Stacks should be known as "Dynamos" based on the ones I've met! I wish my own computer was working - I got the coolest picture of one at the agility trial last weekend.
