    Default Growth beyond 6 months

    Lola is now 27 weeks old (she was born on 10/30/2013) and she still only weighs 25.5 lbs. Does anyone have an idea how much more I can expect her to grow?

    I don't expect her to get too much bigger. It's just been so long since my last bulldog was this age that I don't remember what percentage of his full grown weight he was at this age. I think at this age he was about 45 lbs and when he was full grown he was 55 lbs.

    I would say she is about right for a female. She may be a little on the small side when she is full grown, but that's not uncommon for females.

    How big are her parents? That's probably your best predictor.

    My lola is 90 pounds but she is an OEB and they run bigger

    Her mom is 47 lbs of pure muscle. Not sure how big her dad is because I didn't get to meet him. The breeder said she should get up to about 35 lbs, I'm just wondering if she will actually get that big. Do you think she will put on another 10 lbs before she is done growing?

    Given that bullies grow upwards the first year or so, then out (bulk up)
    in their 2nd to 3rd year, she sounds about right on her weight. I think
    she'll easily put on 10 lbs in next 6 months and probably a bit more after
    that. It's hard to say, really,bullies mature slower & longer than many
    breeds. She's beautiful!

    Thanks for the replies. Here are pictures of her parents. Like I said, her mom is about 47 lbs in this picture. I don't know how big her dad is. This is the only picture I have seen of him and I've never seen him in person.

    All other aspects being equal its genetics. Its the pedigree and the size of the dogs in the lineage. That is if they too were healthy, fed and exercised to their potential. The breeder told me to expect about 15" and 55 lbs. But Ace at a year and a half is closer to 17" and between 70-75 lbs
