    His size and weight will have a lot to do with his parentage and ancestry. It seems like there is quite a range with Bullies. Could be anywhere from 45 pounds, to possibly 80 pounds. I have one girl that is one year old and she weighs 60 pounds. Neither one of her parents is as big as she is!

    Hey Ryan, you asked a very good yet very complicated question. @Manydogs answered it extremely well, Thinking @JeannieCO too a survey earlier this year, male/female, age, weight. Again nothing gives the best answer other than time itself. A prime example to this, is I once owned a Cocker spaniel, this breed of dog got between 15-28 lbs full grown. Mine was 47 pounds. My veterinarian had a coronary seeing her, asked me what is this, I said a cocker spaniel, he called out the weight height specs of a healthy cocker spaniel, then asked me again. He asked me what I fed her, I said anything she wants to eat..... Again wrong Answer, and literally threatened to call the humane society to have her removed from my home, because of my abuse of my animal. I thought I was showing her love, and seeing her Happy, I was Abusing my Pet. I learned a hell of a lot from my Veterinarian, and I can pass this lesson onto anyone who loves their pet. Keep them healthy, Exercise them, it won't do you any harm either, Keep them on a healthy Diet of Kibbles, and feed them as directed. My boys get a cup of food in the morning, and one in the evening, They exercise during the day. No Table scraps whatsoever if you Love Them, practice this. One of my boys is 52 pounds, the other is 62 pounds. Both are extremely healthy, Thank God, but you have a lot to do with their health by what you feed them, exercise them, and care for them.

    Amber is right at 54/55 pounds and will be 2 years old at the end of this month. Ruby, who is Ambers sister (same parents just a different litter) is 48 pounds right now at 10 months old. Ruby is going to be bigger than Amber and they have the same genes. Both eat the same food but Ruby is going to be bigger than Amber.

    Our boy was 56-58 lbs for most of his life and our girl, Banks is 60... they are all different but as others stated it depends on the genes

    Daisy Mae is almost 9 months old and 45 lbs. I've heard mention of them getting tall & lanky before they fill out but I swear she hasn't gotten any taller in months. She looks short to me. But...who cares...she's got all her loveabullness compacted in that short body.

    Sheldon is nearly two will be two at the end of this month and he is right at 60 lbs tall filling out in the chest area really well....like others have said it can be any where from 45-80 lbs. No matter which end of the spectrum Maistro hits its a sure bet he will be gorgeous and loved and spoiled just like all of our bully babies!! LOL

    When I brought Bogey home at 8 weeks, he was 10 lbs but had paws the size of Texas! Everyone said how big he was going to be, including my vet! Well, he slowed down around 8 months, and at 13 months old, he weighs around 50. Vet thinks he's done growing now, so he will be on the smaller side. He is all muscle though! I don't think there is any way to really predict!
