    Default Is Baxter a Victorian Bulldog?

    Now three random people have told me Baxter is not an English Bulldog but in fact a Victorian Bulldog.

    The breeder says he's just extremely underweight.

    He keeps telling me I need to put rice and yogurt in his food because his current food is nothing but protein.

    But these people say his legs are way too long to be an english bulldog.

    If you look at english bulldogs they have extremely short stubby front legs. Baxter doesn't.

    What do you guys think? Here are some puppy images too ...

    DISCLAIMER: Mister Grumpy Face was just woken from a 3 hour nap and its pushing 4am right now, thus the miserable mug LOL






    And when he was little, and not extremely under weight, same basic shape??

    Nope.... he is an EB, just going through the 'lanky/boxer looking' stage.
    Bullies come in all shapes and sizes, Banks has longer legs too, but she is full breed - her an Nitschke were from the same breeder but different sire/damn.

    What and how much are you feeding, he does look a little thin in the one photo? You do not want to see ribs, but you want a nice V-shape to the waist

    With Baxter being sick, they can drop weight like crazy... Even just being sick a few days. Bulldogs are almost unrecognizable as English bulldogs when they are underweight.

    Plus he is also going though the lanky stage... At 5 months many bulldogs look like boxers. They don't start getting chesty until they are at around a year old and they continue to widen until they are 3.

    Listen I also think Baxter is going through his lanky stage. People ask me that all the time as well. I think Brutus is Olde English and I know the bully we just rescued is Victorian Bulldog. But I ask you who really cares. You have a gorgeous baby whom you love immensely. The only way it would really matter is if the breeder tricked you into paying for an English Bulldog. I wouldn't give it too much thought though. Baxter is a very handsome boy.

    Baxter is beautiful. My Howie is considered as an Olde English Bulldogge and yes he has longer legs than the normal English Bulldog. He is more athletic which makes him more slimmer with well defined muscles. But overall, an EB is an EB. I wouldn't worry. Your little guy is precious.

    Definite lanky stage and he looks all EB to me. Don't let what "those people" say about his legs worry you. These little guys grow up so fast. I would just enjoy this stage of Baxter's life and all the others that will come too. In the end, its his health and happiness that count the most. You have a very handsome boy there

    I certainly agree with all the above. Baxter has had a hard go-and has been ill a few times. He has, in the meantime, been growing-so he hasn't been able to put on the weight, he should have. My youngest is 7 mos. and has been looking "long legged!" She is just now starting to "bulk up" some-looking more like an EBD! When Baxter gets the chance to start putting on some weight-you will see the difference. AND if you listen to what "people" say, you will go crazy. Opinions are like A$$ _oles, EVERYBODY HAS ONE!! And it seems the ones with the MOST opinions seem to know the LEAST!! just sayin.....

    Totally EB! VegasR is not a standard looking EB either. Both VegasB (Brindle) and VegasR (Red) are long legged.

    I just grabbed a video from my YouTube page......
