Average pit size can be deceiving, especially since she's mixed. I guess females average 45-55 pounds. I guess thats about 25 kilos? That doesn't mean they can't be bigger, and you can even find them (though their heritage is usually suspect) around 80 pounds. THAT is a big female. It is so hard.

Maybe the place that has her could recommend a size for her. They will also be pleased to know that you are making preparations for her!

she's about 42Lbs, i'd say 28-30" high and i've read for a dog around 20-24Kilo, a 36" deep crate is a good range. The kennal has no idea what size to get for her, shes in a temp one they had spare.

Any suggestions on a size

Its no big deal if you dont have create right away, do like I did and sleep on the couch with her, lol , They range in size from, lets say 35 pounds to 90 pounds, all depends on her breeding.

I'd be willing to sleep with her on the couch but see she's 2.5 y.o and this is a new setup to her and i'd rather not risk anything with her also if i have to go out or go to work, i'd rather have her in a crate then running around in my apt.

BTW she's a staffordshire Terrier, Husky Mix. not a big dog at all

SIze of the pit, I have seen up to 150 pounds. I have one that is 36, and we tried them all. If you get the metal ones, make sure to take her collar and everything off, so she doesn't choke herself. I also have learned that the protection of the plastic seems to be a good thing, versus being able to see everything. Kinda feels like a den. Plus, she could just pee out the side (kinda) that was my concern. Ricky weighs about 55 pounds. The crates state up to 90 pounds ect. on the boxes. GOOD LUCK

She's ADORABLE! :inlove:

Sorry, I can't help with crate size. My crate was given to me and I never measured it. Plus it's HUGE for my 54 lb dog and I think your looking for a correctly sized crate. Good luck! :thumbsup:

Where are you adopting from, if you do not mind me asking...? I have seen that dog before... on petfinder maybe? PBRC? She is really familiar... just trying to place where I saw the listing! Thank you so much for adopting!
