    The only thing I can think of is blood lines.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I am not sure why, but to me is one of the things I love about this breed, no two look alike. They all have characteristics that are typical of the breed but unique to them in how it looks/developes.

    Agree, it's all genetics too. In a litter some pups are larger, stockier, wrinklier, while their siblings maybe small and leggy. Or stocky and leggy or short, wrinkly with a small head. I love the variety!

    Linage with more stocky or larger heads + more stocky with larger heads will produce more pups of the same look, so it really depends on the genetics.

    I would agree with genetics! Look at Arnold's massive block head and muscle mass weighing in at almost 70 pounds yet compare him to @RiiSi babies and he looks small. And Bertha's stature would make many males look small. Both my bullies have very large parents but arnold is more long legged. But he breathes easier because of it.

    I love those pictures ! Keep them coming !


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    Aw they are awesome, brothers !!!!!!
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    Good to see them getting along so well!

    My boys both weight around 30kg/66lbs, even the younger one who still has a lot of maturing to do, so he will be bigger than Usko. They too look very different even though they have some same lineage. I should sometime take pics of them in the same position just to compare.

    Jim that is so interesting… @Chumley
    I've been comparing Winston to Walter… Winston had a MASSIVE head compared to Wally's, but honestly I can see Wally's head is getting bigger. One thing that I'm happy about is that Wally is getting taller. Bella was so short for a bully, and Winston had this HUGE head and was relatively short. Wally is way taller, which I think is a good thing. I agree w/Tracy @agingermom I think it really helps w/the breathing issues...

    I can't speak as much about bulldogs as I can bullmastiffs, @Chumley, but I know a lot of it has to do with breeder preference. One of my bullmastiffs had a beautiful head, but was often passed over by judges in favor of more exaggerated features. Other, older judges would tell me that he was closer to the breed standard than other dogs who consistently beat him in the ring. I know several breeders strived for a specific "look" to their dogs, often to the detriment of their health. Mabel was probably a cute little wrinkly thing with exaggerated features that attracted her to the fool who saw dollar signs in her future litters. She's our pretty little thing , but never should have been bred. I think with bulldogs and the mills and backyard breeders that pump them out, there is no thought to the future appearance of the dog, which could contribute to the differences in features. @ddnene, I think @bullmama or @Davidh or other reputable breeders might be able to address this, but I know that bullmastiff heads are not completely developed until they're about 2 years old. By the way, I love Wally!!!!! He is adorable!
