    Geez feels like it's been a long time, I would say it's one year but in reality they aren't truely adults until 2 yrs old. Depends on what food you feed him, certain foods like mine are all ages foods.

    with bullies they say to put them on adult food as early as 3 months so they don't grow too quickly. I have heard this from several bully lovers. I switched Jesse at 5 months as soon as we found out.

    At about 6 months to an ALS food. I was worried at first that Tuffy might not bulk up enough but he's doing fine! Best of luck!

    Hmm.. thats a really good question! With our first bully we switched him at a year old. But after reading some of these posts i'm thinking I should reconsider the switching age for bullys && look more into it. Especially since we just got a 9week old bully girl named Faith && we're going to have to switch her to adult food eventually.

    Maximus has been on "adult" food for a month now. Only because I could not find any "Puppy" food that was Grain-Free, so I ended up feeding him FROMM Grain-Free, and CALIFORNIA NATURAL Grain-Free Lamb Meal. Maximus will turn 7-months on August 1st.
