    @pdolphin27 Thank you! That's a chip off my shoulder. Do you think he would still grow taller?

    @bullymomwannabe Yes I think he will, they usually grow taller for the first 2 years and then grow wider after that.

But now he's eating lamb and rice from James Wellbeloved.

    How tall is Bifi from floor to shoulder?
    @cefe13 Thank you! I find it quite a coincidence that our boys are of the same age and almost have the same built, plus we're worried about the same thing! LOL. I dunno, i will have to measure him when he wakes up. He is snoring right now behind me.

    I'm actually not sure about the height, my Ace is about the same height as your dog but he is an OEB and is a littler shorter than standard but he may still grow a bit taller. Ace is what is referred to as an F2 which simply means that the sire and dam were F1's, an F1 OEB is half OEB and half EB

    @cefe13 Average height is between 12 and 16 inches give or take so I would say Castor is average.

    Thanks for that figure!

    I've noticed that there only seem to be standards for Bulldog weight, not height, and I've learned that breed standards differ between countries; the AKC says about 50 pounds for male mature dogs, whereas the breed standard according to the Swedish Kennel Club (as well as the British Kennel Club) is 25 kg (55 lbs). I learn a lot every day!

    Dexter is almost 5 and weighs 43 pounds. I asked the vet one time because I thought he was going to be about 70#. Doc said he was just smaller, but as long as he's healthy then I'm happy!!
