    Default Bulldog development? Personal experience?

    So Bluebelle is almost 9 months (19th)

    All of a sudden she seems like a small bulldog. not sure her weight but just seeing other bulldogs she seems very petite.

    So just curious for those who have had bulldogs since puppyhood when did they reach their full size? Maybe she still has a big growth spurt left? Also- females, when did they have their first cycle. She hasn't gotten hers. Thanks!

    She is doing well. She's a snuggly little thing. Sleeps between my legs every night
    Current Bulldogs: Bluebelle (5.19.16)
    Past bulldogs always in my heart: Marigold, Daisy & little Flora

    Well Reggie is only just 6 months old, so can't answer about the full size question yet.
    He last weighed in at 17kgs at 23 weeks old, so we're thinking he's gonna be a big boy, although I know that may slow down. He has steadily gained about 1kg a week since we got him at 8 weeks old.

    I keep asking the vet to make sure he's not overweight but she says he is fine. He has a nice defined waist, tummy tucks up like it should. he is just quite tall, and VERY muscular at the chest and his shoulders are massive!

    How much does Bluebelle weigh?

    They are not totally finished maturing until they are about three years old. They come in all sizes! Some breeders might call her a "mini". Ha!ha! My two were a year old when they were spayed,hadn't come in heat! Most females can come in heat anywhere from six months on up. @Florasaurus

    this is an interesting thread. Daphne is six months old and weighs 27lbs. She will be seven months next week. Her breeder said she "should be small like her mother, 40lbs or so. We shall see.

    Ellie is 15 Months, and long and lean, tiny waist and bigger chest and hip and Hiney, and Teeters around 40lbs most times a little less. Her face a filled out a bit, but she still looks puppyish to me, but I'm sure she will fill out eventually

    She had her 1st heat Cycle at just about 11mos exactly, and Vet recommended Spaying 3mos following, so everything would have a chance to get back to normal, but before she another cycle.


    Thanks and much Love,

    Bullies come in all shapes and sizes. They tend to grow up the first year, out the second year with the head reaching full size maturity at around 3 years. My Harlea will be 4 in a few months and she hovers between 38 and 40 lbs.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Wow! So Reggie is almost a month younger than Daphne and weighs 10lbs more. Looks like we will have a big boy on our hands! @Daphne DuMaurier We'll have to keep comparing as they are so close in age - will be very interesting to see where they both finish up

    She is so tiny to me!!! Especially compared to my big oh boy. I know girls are always smaller than boys though. Tyson is broad, and a solid 74lbs!

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
