    Default When are they filled out?

    When do bulldogs fill out completely? I hear 2 years, but will they change much from 1 years old to 2 years old?

    @Spunkysmom2012,

    My guy is 10 months and every person with Bulldogs states that they :
    ---0yr to 1yr - grow UP
    ---1yr to 2yr - grow OUT (fill out)
    ---2yr to 3yr - head fills out completely

    Yes, at two is when they start to fill out. The first year they grow up and the second they grow out. They really don't stop growing until about age 3.

    i love seeing the changes in my guys; so they're almost two years old and a combined weight of approx. 115lbs! that means a few more lbs by the time they turn 3yo...can't wait!

    Gizmo was 'mature' by 18 months, maybe 2 years, She's maintained 52lbs since she was about a year old, I havent seen much change in her in the last year (she'll be 3 next month) Hershey is still growing, he is up to 45lbs and his latest antic is his jaw moving forward, and him giving us that TOOFY Smile since Thanksgiving, he'll be 1 in March.

    Bacon turned 1 in December and is still changing a lot, but I don't think we are going to get the toofey, his lower jaw bumped out a little at about 8 months and then stopped. He definitely still has a lot of filling out to do though.

    I have heard that neutering a male can affect his head growth...so I have decided to wait until Winston is 1 so he will have the shape, head size a bulldog should have. If the head doesn't grow until three years does it really matter if I wait or not?

    @adamslater our vet recommends waiting until the males are at least 18 months to neuter.

    He has an umbilical hernia that needs to be repaired at the same time...so I'm not sure if I should wait that long.
    I will have to speak to my vet again but who knows if they will know anything as no vets here specialize in bulldogs.
    Anyone have any input or suggestions?

    I would say that the umbilical hernia should take precedence over anything. So any vet can tell you if that is something that should be looked at sooner rather than later. If they say later then you can have him neutered at the same time ... and if they say sooner than again I would have him neutered at the same time.

    The important thing is to try and avoid having your bully put under more than is needed. If he were my bully I would make sure to time both surgeries together.
