    Default is my bull underweight?

    I have a female 18 week old english bulldog who is only 24.2 lbs. Is this small? I try to feed her 3 cups a day but sometimes she will only eat 2, she doesnt quite have the appetite for the flavor of food I bought her (fromms family beef frittata) but I figure she will eat when she is hungry. I spent a lot of money on it so I want her to eat it. I did a puppy weight chart to see her adult size and it said she would prob only be 35 lbs and I know she would be way smaller than normal. She did have a mini bulldog in her litter and the breeder mentioned she will probably be a little petite but I am just curious if she is still a healthy weight. Thank you!

    Yes, pictures would help to tell about her weight because they are all so different, at different ages. Even when they are grown!

    Well to me she looks good. She is still a puppy, and as long as you can't see ribs, and there is "meat" on her back, I would say she looks healthy. I have one that is 9 months and she looks pretty long-legged, but her sister isn't! They are actually not completely finished growing until 3 yrs. The first year is usually height wise, and the next are filling out body wise. She is a pretty gal!

    I agree with the others as she still has a lot of growing to do. My Harlea was right around 20 lbs at 16 weeks and at 9 months she is right at 40 lbs.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    She is built *EXACTLY* like Baxter. Everyone asks me "Are you sure he's an english bulldog?" Nearly every single day. Even yesterday. Others say "Is he American bulldog?" One guy even informed me I was wrong, and was in fact some other bulldog type I'd never heard of. Long legs is always the reason. My breeder says that the legs appear longer because the body fat is low. Not because the legs really are longer. The "Barrel" chest just isn't as big due to low body fat. I started giving Baxter one big tablespoon scoop of "FAGE" yogurt (plain, and found the type that does NOT say "fat free" or "low fat"). Just the regular one. With 1 or 2 meals a day. He immediately started filling out noticeably for the first time in his life. Took about a week. The reason he was so slim is because his food is very low (almost zero) carbs. Only protein. That will keep them really thin.

    PS: At 18 weeks baxter was 16lbs.....
