    Default I think my bulldog is abnormally small....?????

    Hi Everyone,
    Ernie is my first bulldog so I am not sure if this is normal. He is almost 15 months and has no girth to him at all. I have always been careful with his amount of feed.(1 cup am and 1 cup pm) of Fromm. He is not skinny. Vet said he looks good. His waist and girth is more of a teeny tiny boxer with a bigger chest. is this normal or did I stunt him by not feeding him more?

    I would not be overly concerned... they tend to grow OUT in the 2nd year. Can you post some pictures of him?

    No worries; he will grow out. Amber didn't look large either and then just one day I weighted her and she is 59 pounds. He will grow. Ruby is a slim line model right now but she too will fill out.

    I think if your vet says he looks healthy and great for his age then I wouldn't really worry about the weight. Like others have said, Ernie will fill out more as he gets older. My boy Finn is a bit "trimmer" for a bully also but my other one Tate is more stocky and could stand to lose a few pounds. But do post pics as we'd love to see Ernie

    He is still a baby he will fill out more as he gets older ... my boy Diesel is the runt of his litter and my breeder said he is the smallest bulldog she has ever seen, he only weighs 37lbs and is considered small even for a female

    From that picture he looks good to me. I wouldn't be too worried about it if your vet thinks he looks good as well. My Harlea is only 38lbs at 10 months and she looks great.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    If your vet likes his weight I wouldn't worry either. Charley was 45 at 7 months when we got him. He's only 50-53 pounds now at 5 years old. He broadened through the shoulders the second year.

    Does anyone have a typical weight chart for Bulldogs (male and female) for how much the average bully weighs at each month of age as they are growing? My Lola is 19 weeks old today and only weighs 18 lbs. I'm guessing that she is small for her age? Her sister weighs 24 lbs. Does this mean that she will be a small adult or is there a chance that she will still get up to the 40 lb range? It doesn't really matter, but I'm curious.
