    Default Bulldog size/weight

    On the average what can one expect for normal weight gain over the course of one to two years of age? For example from the age of 6 months can one expect the dog at one year to gain a quarter more weight than the dog currently weighs at 6 months, half the weight or double the weight?

    Well I have never really paid much attention to it before, but it's not that much more weight, unless they are getting over weight. At one year of age they are as tall as they are going to get, and start to widen out so they will gain a little more weight, maybe 5 lbs. or so. I wouldn't think much more than that unless like I said, they are over weight. Diva is 8months old now and weights 51 lbs, so she may get to around 58 lbs. by the time she is two.

    That's good to know. I saw a chart for bulldogs that basically had them weighing in a year approx. double their weight at 6 months, so I'm thinking oh wow. I was thinking more like a quarter to a half more but actually had no experience or facts to back it up. Thanks.

    Actually I just took a second look at the chart I was referring to and it had about one third more at a year from 6 months so that is more in line with what you said

    It's genetics that really make up the ideal weight, height , bone structure and so forth. there is a breed standard for show. but of course not every bully is of show quality. I think the bulldog breed has more differences in one litter alone than any other breed, weights, bone structure, height, color, wrinkles, every thing is different. If you look for instance at a breed like the doberman pincer , the entire litter may look the same and difficult to distinguish between each pup, not so with the bully. Each bully will have it's own unique frame or markings . hope this made sense, and feed your bully and exercise your bully what is right for him or her. some may need more or less. no real scale for each individual

    Ace is about 5 and half months old and was wondering about what weight he would be at maturity. The breeder estimated about15" and 55 pounds but considering what he weighs now I thought it might be considerably more than that but perhaps not after seeing the chart and what you guys have told me here
