    It sounds small compared to the average, but he looks fine to me. He might just be a smaller bulldog. My 2.5 year old bulky Ruckus is 65 pounds and his head is huge. My 7.5 month old puppy is quite a bit smaller than Ruckus was at the same age. She was barely 9 pounds when we picked her up from the breeder.

This is him here (on the right of course).

    Bruce is on TOTW. He seems to eat pretty well except for first thing in the morning. His stool is a work in progress. It's not perfect but is getting there.

    Aw, so cute! I would just keep an eye on things...my bulldog Linus was a preemie when he was born, a tiny little guy! His full grown, adult weight was 82 lbs! And they said he was going to be a runt!

    He looks healthy, but see what the vet says. I thought our Daisy was underweight but when I went to the vet he said she is perfect the way she is and a very healthy weight - 6 months old and 30lbs. I believe she was about 12lbs at 11 weeks old.

    I thought Lola was underweight when we had her but she was a fickle eater, and she was also the runt. 11 weeks we picked her up and she was 16.2 lbs, a few weeks later, she was up to 18lbs. Now a healthy 48lbs (she was up to 54 at one time!)


    just to add, its better to build up weight slowly rather than bulk up as a wee pup. Easier on the growth plates while the joints finish developing and easier to notice any breathing issues if not overweight.
