    I agree with everyone else - probably an olde english bulldog. The cool thing is that you'll hopefully have less health problems because of the lean/taller legs thing. Enjoy!

As far as health goes, haven't had any problems yet so he is definitely healthy. He weighs around 42 pounds at almost 8 months and I think olde would weigh more than that. Maybe a mix of boxer and bully? Either way, he is become a great part of my life and definitely makes me happy so whatever his breed may be, he is a great companion and well behaved at that. Nothing more I could ask for, really.
    He may have some boxer as well. You stated he weighs 42 pounds what would you reckon his height to be?

    He is BEAUTIFUL! His weight is perfect. Bullies grow up the first year and out the second year. You have a real winner there.

    Maggie is lean too. She's much shorter than your Bacon but she's fairly lean. She weighs 41 pounds at 4 years old and the Vet said she looked really healthy so I'm not concerned with her weight. She still eats. I think bacon looks great and I agree he looks Olde english. Good news is that if he is Olde they generally have better health because their mutations are less extreme (correct me if I'm wrong). I'm so jealous of his coloring though, I LOVE brindle.

    Our boy is the same age as yours and is also lean and tall (you can check out his pics I've posted). Henry is a bulldog/olde english mix. He still has A LOT of extra skin to grow into, so time will tell how he turns out. He currently weighs 46 pounds.

    Bacon definitely has the bulldog face. I don't see the boxer in him. Maybe your boy is olde english or a mix of the two like ours? Either way, Bacon is a cutie! I loved the pic with the glasses and cap!

    Give him time... 8 months is young and he still has lots of growing to do. as long as you can not see ribs, all is good.

    he is a handsome boy!
