    Can you provide any pictures we'd love to see some photos. My bully Boris started to bulk up around 6-8 months and he's currently sitting at 42 lbs at 10 months.

    Thin is much better for a pup than chubby and like Matt said in not so many words...

    Riikka is being funny. We love pics here, so every thread is pretty much worthless without at least 100 pictures enclosed.

    Winnie weighs about 45 lbs at 10 months and she looks pretty trim. But it's better for them to be on the thin side--they're much healthier that way. Bullies should have a waistline. Ideally, you should be able to easily feel their ribs, but not see them. (IMO )

    My Floyd is 7 1/2 months and crazy skinny, he just keeps going up and I'm sure he will fill out soon enough. He is healthy and happy.

    I think my Bella is pretty solid looking. She's about 40 pounds at 7.5 months old. When she was really young, she was thin. I used to see the roley poley bully pups and think I wanted my girl to be like that. I think your pup will fill out just fine.

    Yes it is normal. Bullies grow UP before OUT. So it is totally normal at this age. Mine is still tall and lanky, and she is almost 2 years old. She weighs 42 lbs and is 16 inches tall. I think at 5 months she weighed 21 lbs. How much does he weigh?

    When we brought our first bulldog he was really chunky as a puppy and all of a sudden he lost all of his puppy fat and looked really thin, we kept an eye on him but he looked like he was getting thinner as time went on, we tried all different dog foods to see if any would put some weight on him but nothing was working, we took him to the vets and they wasn't very helpful as they said its good that he is thin because people ruin bulldogs... as you can guess this angered us and decided to get a second opinion from a reputable breeder, they recommended the food they used, which was Dr Johns Gold and a pound of Lamb mince (which you can get from a butcher), he soon piled the weight on, he is a leggy bulldog anyway but he looks a lot better, Archie is still young so I wouldn't be so worried at the moment but you could try a different food or adding some sort of meat too it. Hope this helps
