    I agree with Ty, Henry is a solid looking Bullie. Bullies come in all sizes. Leo's breeders had bullies from 30-75lbs. Leo is 55lbs at 16 months. His parents were 55 and 57lbs.

    I think our Henry (8 months old) is turning in to a VERY big English bulldog. He is currently 30kg/66lbs, 17 1/2 inches to the "dip" in his back and 19inches to the top of his rear legs. He has come across various aged male bulldogs and he has been taller and heavy (apart from his head, which was not always bigger than some. I think he is turning in to great male for the breed and we will look to bread from him in the future.

    I will let the images do the talking and would like to hear your thoughts, do we have any judges on here?

    Thanks,

    This is an image of Henry & Daphne eating, hard to believe they are brother and sister from the same litter.

    Rocco is about 20 months old and weighs only 52lbs. Not sure about his measurements. Vet says he is healthy and to keep him on the muscular side which he is. He's still full of energy and loves running

    They are all so beautiful! I am a little jealous that everyone has such large pups at 8 months it seems most are 60lbs and up, but Boris is barely over 40... My Gf loves how tiny he is, but i was hoping for a big tub of meat! I still love him to death though

    Yes they all look awesome! I have also notice some dogs are massive while others are way smaller same age. Is it because of how they were bred or the food or other things ?

    Yes, larger pups are adorable, but there's nothing wrong with a smaller bullie. A thinner bulldog has less of a chance of developing the usual bulldog issues like hips dysplasia and patella injuries. Most vets prefer them on the thin side. I'm actually jealous of the smaller bullies because I absolutely believe that their size contributes to their health issues, including breathing.
    So as long as your pup is healthy, I wouldn't worry.

    Both contribute to the size. Genetics obviously, but over-feeding plays the biggest role I think.

    Generally when I see a large bulldog, they're overweight. You can see it's not muscle, it's just pure fat. But I've also seen some big boys that were pure muscle, just not as many.

    Elmo weighs 68lbs. Vet says he is too heavy, so Elmo is on a diet, hopefully to loose down to 62lbs.-100_0614-jpg

    I agree nycbullymama, Genetics plays a big roll and so does diet. Sometimes owners forget (or don't know) that bullies have a slow metabolism and over feed without knowing it. Our 2 bullies were fed identical portion sizes until about 16weeks, but then Daphne stared to but on weight to quickly so her food was reduced by 25%, now she is doing great and is 5kg ish lighter than Henry, you can see the size difference of them both in this image. (they are brother & sister from the same litter)

    Goob's build is very similar to Henry's. Goob is almost 4 years old and he is between 65 and 70 pounds. He has slimmed down somewhat from these photos( -8 lbs. or so). He is very active, can run a mile if we let him, and his nostrils are also very wide open which means no breathing issues for us...YAY! I don't know much about the breed standards other than what I've seen on the internet. I know that Goob's head isn't show quality and I don't believe he is thick enough/short enough. Also...his snout protrudes a little more than the show dogs I've seen. AND> He doesn't have the temperment to show OR to breed...he can be a butt cheek sometimes around strangers. BUT he is my handsome guy!!!!
