    Question Sassy "not broad enough" ?????

    Ok,

    I want ya'lls opinion. I stay in contact with the breeder I got Sassy from. I'm always sending pics and such. I sent her 2 pics last night, and she called me today suggesting that if I didn't "free feed" Sassy, that maybe I could consider it. In her opinion from the pics she's "not broad enough"

    Personally I think she's healthy, and eats the recommended amount from Fromm's off the food bag.

    See attached pics...

    What do ya'll think?

    She's 19 weeks, and weighs 29.5 pounds

    She looks great to me, I personally would never ever free feed a bully it's to dangerous. She looks very healthy and right for her age.

    She's doing exactly what Bentley did! He grew tall first then he filled out later! He is just now starting to fill out and he's 9 months old!
    This is Bentley at 5 months old

    This is him at 7 months old

    And this is him at 9 months old, 55lbs!

    I like you were very worried at first but the older he gets the bigger he is getting! So don't worry, she will get bigger eventually

    He's actually eating less than he was at seven months and he's getting bigger and changing every day. It's amazing how much they change in such a short period of time! And you are absolutely right he almost doesn't look like the same dog lol

    I agree with everyone above, she looks perfect to me. Bullies will grow in height and weight the first year, and they fill out the second year. They are not fully developed until 2 years old. Having said that each bully is different in size, weight, height, and body type. I have 2 EB's, they are siblings and litter mates, and are both 2 and 1/2 years old, and both weigh 45 lbs. I don't free feed them, I feed them 2 cups a day, of Fromm's Lamb and Lentil, 1 cup in the morning, and 1 cup in the evening. They are very different from each other, Bulldozer has a leaner looking body than Blossom, some people ask me if he's mixed with a boxer, and Blossom is more barrel shaped, and her chest is wider, she looks stockier and heavier than Dozer, but they weigh the same.

    For pete's sake, the dog isn't even 5 months old yet! This is a breeder telling you the dog is not "broad enough"? She should know that they are all different-and don't fill out until later on! She looks fine to me!

    Thanks ya'll! I knew from reading on here that the grow up in year one, and out in year 2. But with this being my 1st bully, I didn't want to correct the breeder and sound like a know it all! Thanks for your expert opinions!

    I value this board so much!

    I agree w/the gang… it takes about 3 years for them to fill out. You would think that your breeder would be aware of this already… SMDH!!! Sassy looks perfect…

    My breeder was like that too! Lola just happened to grow a little slower, was smaller and weighed less than her littermates (she was the runt). And the other owners of the pups fed the dogs human food!! I ignored her, Lola grew up just fine! And now I struggle to keep those extra 3lbs off her. you're doing great!!!
