Default Is my APBT pup "showable?"

I didn't really know where to put this, so it might get moved....

I'm considering showing my Pit Bull pup when she gets older. I breed Border Collies, so I'm not real familiar with APBT confo...not yet anyways. I have been reading, but need to read more on the show standards and such. I think she would also make a great breeding prospect. Her tempernment is what really makes me want to breed her someday. I also think she is put together nicely (confo wise) and she is just as smart as my Border Collies. I'm also going to train her for agility b/c she has as much energy as a BC

She's only 4 months old, so I have a LONG while to decide if she's breedable. She is also going to mature physically of course and her confo and muscles look nicer each week.

Here are some pictures, tell me what you think about her. I'd like to know why you think she's showable, or why not, and what you don't like about her or what you do like about her.

THanks!

I don't think you can show a APBT, I'm not even sure if it's been recognized by the American Kennel Club. Sorry, I can't be much help... I'll try searching google for some answers

Here's a link to the AKC's recognized breeds. Is a pit bull the same as a Staffordshire Terrier? If so, looks like it's recognized...

http://www.akc.org/breeds/breeds_a.cfm

You can look up the breed standard on that site, if so.

Cute dog
You can show any dog, even a mixed breed.. it all just depends on the show youre going to.
Sprout isnt AKC standards, and hes un-papered, but I still show him in 4-H shows and little open shows for anyone to go to

Pits can be shown in the UKC and the ADBA...my pit is cross registered as an amstaff with the AKC and a pit with the ADBA and the UKC. She looks beautiful but a little young to judge whether she is show quality or not yet.

Is your puppy registered if she is than you could show with that registry in coformation as far as agility goes APBT's are great at it and she don't have to be registered to show in agility

I know about breed registries and showing BLAH BLAH...I'm asking more about the dogs confo and looks....is the dog itself showable. And you're right! The dog doesn't have to be registered to show in agility

right now I think the pup is too young to tell. You should start taking your pup to shows and look at other pitbulls.
