    Default Anyone owned a smaller sized Bulldog?

    Anyone owned a smaller sized Bulldog? I'm just curious because i feel i'm alone in this with Henry. He will be 5 months tomorrow and should be weighing in at 19lb, He was 18.5 at the beginning of the week. When i look back on it, he has gained on average 1lb/week since i got him at 10 weeks, not always in linear fashion. I'm always seeing people on here feeding around 3 cups/day or more it seems. Henry has been on 2 1/4 cups/day for a couple weeks now. He's just so little, lol. He doesn't seem skinny to me at all. Everyone calls him "chubbs" it seems. My vet and peers all think he looks great, as do I. In this pic below, he's a little grumpy after being woken up to go #2 before i had to go to work.

    There are all sizes of bullies and they dont all grow at the same rate. We like to say that they grow UP their first year and OUT their second.... then fill in their third. lol He looks fine to me. Princess Gracie was only 39 pounds when I weighed her a week ago... She is 6 years old.

    He's adorable!! He is just going to be a small boy. His proportion looks normal for his age too, lucky for you he will likely not be a 60lb lap bully!

    You are not alone. We got little ones all around the forum. Oh....those ears. Orion had a set on her before she finally grew into hers. She is almost 4 and she's at the top of her weight right now. In the last year her weight has fluctuated between 33 and 37 pounds. Currently she weighs 35. She is small and compact. She comes from 2 normal sized bulldogs.....she is just a smaller sized baby.

    Oh he's so cute - I love the grumpy face! He has a lot of growing to do yet, so don't worry. They come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing is for certain, they come with huge baskets of love!

    What a cutie!!
    I don't think it's a big deal as long as the vet says he's healthy. Smaller bullies are just as cute as the bigger fatties

    HAHAHAHA...Yep, he's giving you the ole stink eye...and an adorable one!

    As long as he's healthy, be happy and you never know, he may grow up to
    be huge...it happens.

    Sometimes they do stay small and we've got plenty on here. I'm getting one
    from normal sized parents (bigger) and she was but then stopped growing.

    I think she's about 40 lbs or less at 1 & 1/2 y/o...I can't wait to get Little Bee.

    On Febr 8th....trying to stay busy 'cause I can't wait!

    Your Henry is adorable & you are not alone, we'll watch our wee ones grow, together!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    How much were you feeding her as a puppy? I'm always worried that i'm not feeding enough. I just go by how he looks and the stool consistency which is why i only feed 2 1/4th cups/day. I don't want to stunt his growth in any way.

    Just some mindless info I saw at my Vets office..on the wall is that ubiquitous chart that shows every dog breed and stats about them. It states, as do other places, they average 40-50 pounds in weight. They aren't supposed to be 70..80 or more pounds! I am willing to bet he turns out perfect! Jake came from a litter of 6 males. We have regular play days with them and although they have gone back and forth between being the biggest or not..they all are almost exactly the same. Jake put his weight on slowly and is now a wee bit over 50 lbs.

    As far as feeding..jake got 1/2 cup 3 times a day..until 6 months then went to 2 feedings of 1 cup each. I did try to increase his feedin size and he just got soft . My vet said..keep him where he's doing well..some feed 3cups a day to their pups here. Let's ask a couple with lots of puppy experience.
