Well I got my morning excercise in!! After chasing Vegas for the last 10 min. around the dining room table with a tape measure in hand I finally got him measured!! I have been wanting to know for a while anyway. Vegas has weighed 63 for over a year and a half, he is 17 inches tall from top of butt to floor and is 33 inches long from nose to his flap tail. My son see's two bully's at he dog park all the time, he says that Vegas is twice as long as the ones he see's, I have always thought he was long. I don't know what the "standard" measurements are?? @desertskybulldogs???? But I think Gravy and Vegas are perfect just the way they were suppose to be built!!!!
Who wouldn't love that face???
Gregory and Gravy look alot alike. And ive had the same kind of issue. I met both of his parents, his dad was fully on english bulldog. Short and like a little alligator, his mom was kinda tall but both around 50lbs. They both have papers in which i saw.However we have gregory who looks like a bulldog on stilts and weighting in at 72lbs! When i asked our vet about it he told me not to be concerned, hes healthy and dogs are like people. There are many variations tall, short, skinny fat.
Everywhere we go people ask what he is, i just tell them half english and half old english i really have no explanation as to why he is as tall as he is.
I think @Jack Daniels has been drinking again!!! very funny picture.
My first Bulldog, Sherman, weighed 75 lbs. and wasn't fat! Ruggles goes from 63 to 65lbs., has a long body and is "leggy". Mack is 50 to 52 lbs. They are all different sizes and shapes but still 100% Bulldog!
gosh cant-a fella say a few jokes wizzout bein' cuzed of habug ine 2 many,, hiccup,, huh ?
Banks is tall for an EB... people ask all the time if she is Ole EB and yes, she also weighs in at 60 lb.
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
Gravy is ADORABLE! He looks a little like my Reggie, who I am told is an OLDE English Bulldog....(I didn't know there were different kinds of EB until I adopted mine).
I was expecting Reggie to be shorter and not so long in the torso, but the Vet tells me that is classic Olde English.
Google it to find out more....from what I understand, the look (taller, longer, more active) is closer to how the bullies were in old England back in the 19th century, when they were used to bate bulls!
But just enjoy him......I think he's very handsome!!
Oh he looks just like titan and titan definately has olde english down the line somewhere....ill have to measure him...but i he was weighed last week and is 72 pounds
I honestly can't tell, so maybe you should send him here so that I can have a better look! Of course I might not want to send that handsome boy back to you.
aw hes wonderful no matter what he is. thanks for the pics and we generally just ignore @Jack Daniels around here
