    Default Question about puppy size

    Hello, my name is Roddrick Murphy i just recently purchased a new member of my family; Tank our English Bulldog. He's 8 weeks old but hes very small for his size. a member of our neighborhood has a 10 week bulldog and its about twice the size of ours. i just want to know if its normal for them to be small because the women made it seem like he was too small for his size and seemed very concerned. thank you for any help.

    I don't really know what size is "too small" because June is my first. But she weighed 9 lbs at 8 weeks. She's 4 months now and 23 lbs.

    He is a little small for his age. Usually at 8 weeks they are 10 to 14 lbs. but that's OK, I bet he is just cute as a button.

    Default Question about puppy size

    Yes he's a bit small, but I've had smallest pups turn into largest adults! Has he had his vet check yet to see if the vet is concerned about his weight/size?

    Gunny was 8 pounds at 8 weeks if I remember right. He is 5 1/2 months and 35 pounds. Hope that helps.

    Baxter was only 7lbs at eight weeks.

    He is now 16 weeks old and weighs about 17lbs.

    He's just little, as yours probably is.

    Only reason for concern would be if you're seeing ribs and the stomach is too sunken in.

    Then he needs to be fed more. If he's pooping 15x a day and has diarrhea, then he's not absorbing nutrients and a new food is needed.

    But I expect Bax will always be about 30% smaller than most english bulldogs.
