    Default growth rate of a eb

    Hi everyone, Is there any good web pages out there on Growth of a EB. Hannibull is 4.5 mo old and around 35 lbs but his head is like a peanut. lol the breeder said he is fine that he is like a 5 yr old human. I may be pretentious but well i want a great looking dog, and he is. I am just wondering what to expect and when. When i got my Frenchie 13 yrs ago the breeder said the same and she topped out at 17lbs. hannies parents are great looking dogs. one day he looks long in the face and other days perfect. Just thought i would ask
    here are some pics he has out grown the sweater I bought 3 weeks ago.

    Not sure as every bully is different so there shouldn't be any growth chart
    They grow the fastest at the teething stage
    First they grow "up" then widen at around 2-3 years of age
    Not sure by looking at the picture but your boy looks a bit on a bigger side -very round -but it might be his jumper (how much you are feeding him?)
    Usually females have smaller heads than males but they should be proportionate

    I am given to understand that bullies don't stop growing till they are about 2-3 years old. They are all different. I wouldn't worry so much about looks as health. Weight management is important as well as feeding them a very nutritious food. If you have a healthy bully then it will look great! I wouldn't worry about proportionate right now because he is still a pup and will probably look awkward till he is about two when he matures. Hannibull looks like a handsome bully boy to me, get a pic from above him that is how you can tell. He should have a defined waste. Somewhere on here there is a chart.. @Pati Robins you know which one I'm talking about?

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    Ace is about 16 to 16 and a half inches, and he hasn't grown any taller in several months it seems. He is a year old. He is still filling out though but it is more gradual than it was a few months back. He weighs between 70 and 75 pounds

    Don't worry ~ their head is the last thing to grow :-). When Morgan was 4 months old we called him "our little tick". He is 6 months old now and his head is beginning to catch up with the rest of his body, but they do not fully mature until 2-3 years of age. One important note regarding neutering ~ our breeder recommends waiting until he 12-18 months old to allow the head and chest ample time to develop. Your bullie is adorable, by the way!

    Buster weighed about the same at 4 months. He looks good to me in these pics you have here. I think you can tell how big they'll get by the parents. Like Patti said they are all different but the parents are a good indication. Like has been said too weight is important to keep an eye on, always easier to gain then to lose. Hannie is a good looking boy!

    Rudy took almost 2 years for his head to fill in. At 2-1/4 years he is still growing. Mostly in the head and chest. Bones are getting bigger watch. Guess I need to post some new pics. It has been awhile.
