|As a mini owner with some show guys who are quite close to the top size, I need to correct Sonja a bit, but only in the wording of the AKC standard... Toys are up to and including ten inches, mini's are over ten inches and up to and including fifteen inches, standards are OVER 15 inches. Soo, a 15 inch standard would actually be a mini, not a standard.
However, in the "real" show world, the average toy is between 9 1/2 and 10 1/2 inches. Most show mini's are around 14 1/2 to 15 1/2, but Toto is almost 16 inches, was never measured out and actually has quite a few points toward his championship. However, my silver male, Tinman was EXACTLY the same height and was measured out three times in a row. Black always gives the appearance of being smaller, I guess. Even standing side by side, they would toss out the silver and leave Toto in the ring!!
