    Default Is Luca too big for his age ?

    My boy is 5 months old today and weighs in at over 37 pounds. He seems to fit his massive frame but a lot of charts I see on Internet say he is over weight. What do you guys think?

    Could you PM me a link to one of these bully weight charts..... Ive never seen one for bullies. I do know they grow at vastly different rates but I dont know that there is any kind of average rate.

    I know Rumble just turned 4 months and he is 35 pounds! The vet said he looked good and you can still feel his ribs so she said not to worry because they are still growing. I love Luca's face by the way!

    So precious!!! He's still a pup, I would not be too concerned at this stage. Unless he was downright obese. A photo topside would be a better way for us to tell though, and a side view standing up.

    I had a feeling those charts were nonsense. Thanks everyone.

    It's not necessarily nonsense. An AKC dog is supposed to follow the AKC breed standards if you want to show him. And it's a general guideline for the average bulldog. But a lot of dogs don't fall in the "average" side of things. A better way to gauge your dog's growth is to get the charts for his dam and sire and his grandparents. This would give you a better idea of what can be expected from your own specific dog.

    But, by the picture you showed, your dog looks in good shape.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    Lola was a big girl at that age too but now she has slowed down. I love your bully's face it looks like a straight line was drawn down his face and one side is color one side white very unique!

    @bcarro45-that is a little bully but some just are on the smaller side naturally so as long as the vet says your bully is ok then I wouldn't be to worried!
