Thread: Is my Bulldog Small???

  1. #1

    Default Is my Bulldog Small???

    She is about 4 and a half months old now, I have had a few people say she doesn't look like a bulldog because her body is fairly small along with her head i guess? What do you guys think? At around 12-13 weeks she was about 13-14 Pounds which the vet said is healthy

    I just started feeding her about 2 Cups a day now. Was feeding her about 1 Cup the first several weeks as i thought it was enough but i was wrong. I started feeding her 1.5 cups and just recently a few weeks ago started with 2 cups or a little under.

    here are some pictures

    She is SOOO cute! I think she looks like a bully. I compiled a list of my Samson's weight at different stages in life because I've seen alot of people ask if their bully puppies weight was normal so I figured it would be helpful.

    4 months: 21 lbs

    5 months: 25 lbs

    6 months: 28 lbs

    7 months: 35 lbs

    11 months: 45 lbs

    One and a half years: 50 lbs

    2.5 years on average of 55lbs


    SO, my Samson was bigger at your girls age but males tend to be bigger and SOME female bullies here are only 35-40 lbs at full size so she just may end up being a petite girl.

    I have a male and pretty much the same scale as @TessaAndSamson, a few pounds heavier but Vegas is long for a bully. At 1 year he weighed 63 and now at 2.5 yrs he weighs 63, he has maintained the same weight for over a year and a half. I think (what is that beautiful bully's name???) She looks PERFECT!!! Her head and body are in proportion. She is beautiful!!!

    She does look small, but not puny by any means. She looks a lot like my Amy in body type and size, but not coloring. Amy is 5 months and Liz is 7 months. I notice that they have very different body types. Amy has longer ears, a slim waist, and a broader chest. I call Liz a sausage because she is just big all around, without a discernable waist (she's the white one). I know Liz got big at 6 months and also got her underbite then too. So, I am waiting to see if Amy catches up or not. I adopted Amy when she was 4 months, but got Liz from a breeder at 8 weeks so know her better and where she's been, lol. Also, Amy has the longer upper lip like your baby girl. I wouldn't worry about her size, she looks perfectly healthy and happy! Such a cutie. Now I know how Amy would look without her black mask.

    She is adorabull! The females can be smaller and not have the massive heads that the males do but that is normal. Also, she looks like she is going through her "awkward" phase as we call it in our house. There was a time with our first boy when he started getting real skinny & lanky & had a longer snout like most other breeds. I was so worried but they grow into their bodies, sometimes they don't fill out completely until 18-24 months. With a bully you never know lol.

    I personally think she looks perfect and very healthy! Bullies come in many shapes and sizes, even from the same litter! Yes, it sounds like she was being a tad underfed but you have that under control now. You can add some goats milk to her kibble to help add some additional calories.

    First they grow tall, and starting around 10 months they slowly become broader. All but their head. Then finally, the head will become larger until finally, after almost 2 years, you will see what your adult bully will look like. Tidus is just now starting to look like a big male, all this time I was thinking he was quite a weiner for a boy!

    One benefit to having a small bit of a snout is that you will have less breathing issues more than likely. Hey I kinda think she resembles an older version of my grand-fur-baby Linus @kazzy220 don't you think so too? So of course, she is perfect!

    She's beautiful! She doesn't look too skinny, so that's good.

    We have a 40 lb princess and we love that she's a petite girl. @Libra926 and @kazzy220 have girls that are even smaller.

    OH my she is precious! Nothing wrong with her at all, she is perfect. As others have said, bullies come in all shapes and sizes, which adds to the uniqueness of each of them.

    She is such a cutie, and looks fine. Glad you increased her food to 2 cups though, may have to increase a little more, just depends. You should not easily feel the ribs but they should still have a little waist.

    I did the same as Tessa...and compiled a chart of O's weigh ins.

    She was born a very small 8oz.
    6 weeks = 6.1
    8 weeks = 10.8
    11 weeks = 14
    14 weeks = 18
    17 weeks = 20
    5 months = 22
    6 months = 25
    8 months = 27
    11 months = 34
    15 months = 37.5
    22 months = 36.9
    24 months = 36
    2 years+2 mo = 34

    The last time she was in the office...September, she weighed in at 32.6 pounds.

    I just realized how many times she's been into the vet in just 2 1/2 years. Am I overly concerned or what?

    She could be a mini like one of ours.... She's an AKC full blooded bully. Just bred down. She's very muscular and likes to sit around like a human. Actually, she thinks she is a human.
