    Default Is my bulldog to thin????

    -photo-4-jpgthis is tank hes 2 years old and he sure eats his share of food lol. We keep him very active with walks and playing but people are always like hes thin for a bully. I never wanted him to get over weight cause of the risk of more health issues but hes a big boy weights 65 pounds at his last check up and also the vet gave him a 4 out 5 for his body type which is good

    I think he looks fine in that picture. A picture from above would be a better indicator of telling if he looks too thin though.
    Mostly though you want to see a waist from above. Also you want to be able to feel the ribs, but not visibly see them when looking at him. I can't see his ribs in the pic.

    I think he looks good! Here's a pic of HRH taken a few months ago. She's a small girl, but perfect at 40 lbs. for her frame.

    He is very wrinkly there . I am on the fence with this I really like the fact that you keep him on the lighter side. I agree that it keeps away health issues but I am wondering if a couple more treats a day might give him some reserve if a health problem came up. Just my opinion. He is beautiful!

    Thanks for all your advice. He gets fed plenty of good and treats. His not the kind of bully that just lays around all day always very active and sometimes to much. He's a little trouble maker lol
