    Default Head to small for his body....

    At almost 18 months, my kids still think Max's head is too small.
    He's a sweetheart!

    Frith is almost 7 months and she has the same thing--a small head. I just figured it grows last?

    Penny is the same way. Almost 11 months.if I'm not mistaken, they will still
    Continue to widen through 3 yrs old.

    It looks good to me, but Maude went through a stage at that age, when her head looked too small for her body. It's all even now!

    Nyala is a mini but still will be 45ish lbs so there goes the mini theory.

    Red one is Nyala's dad. Mom is black. Small heads too but not all of the are like that.

    Below is Taz as a teenager then adult. It will give you an idea

    Looks normal to me… bulldogs grow up at a year, and continue to grow out until they are 3 years old. He still has time for his body to change...

    I think he's slightly over-weight. His body is actually too big for his head. I like to see a well defined waist when sitting...JMHO. Being a little over weight when they are young like Max isn't such a big deal but as he ages keeping him leaner will be very beneficial to his overall health (hips, knees, heart,
    lungs). But, even being 5 lbs+/- heavy, he's one really handsome boy.
