    Default Bully sizes???

    I think Bear is too small. I see other bullies on here and online and on tv and they just seem so big. I am feeding him enough so I don't know what I am doing wrong. I don't know his exact weight, he hasn't been to the vet recently. He is very muscular and compact.

    I think he is the size of @Libra926 O she looks smaller compared to Vegas. I know Bear isn't fully grown but he seems very healthy (Thank You Fromm) and very happy. Another reason they are probably related

    When I look at @savemejeebus Stiggy He looks pretty big with the adults, Bear to me looks small. I don't know I need to take him to a meet up.


    Here are some photos with my husband who is 6'4", does he look too small at 14 months?

    My beagle he is laying with here is 40lbs and is a little taller, longer than Bear (Bear feels like he ways more than he looks)

    My bully, Roxi, is long and lean/muscular ( as I like to say).
    She is definitely not like the ones on tv! They are HUGE compared to Roxi! She is 37 lbs @ 10 months old.
    Just as long as you can't see ribs or spine sticking out you are good! What the breeder
    told me was that you should be able to see an indention between their rib cage and hips. Doesn't have to be a huge
    indention- just enough to see their "curves".
    I would prefer my bully to be on the smaller side because when they get too big it is really hard
    on them. I want my Roxi around as long as possible!
    I hope this helps!

    How much does he weigh? I think we have bullies on here that range from just under 40 lbs to over 70 lbs so they definitely all come in different sizes.

    He will definately have a growth spurt still. LariP made Vegas a hoodie at Christmas time he was about a year and a half, it fit him perfectly, about 6 weeks later NO WAY! His chest broadened seems like overnight. From what I have read they don't stop growing until they are two. Vegas most certainly hit his spurt a little over a year and a half, I think you will be amazed in the next couple months the changes you are going to see. And if not everyone is right bullys come in all shapes and sizes. I look at other pics and Vegas seems longer than most but he is height/weight proportionate.

    The come in a lot of different sizes! Doesn't the standard say that a male should be about 50lbs? I think he looks perfect!

    @mammyglicks - By looking at Bear's pics, I think he's perfect and healthy. Most likely he and Stig are two of the smaller males here. Stig's only 47lbs. Kinda giggled a little when you mentioned he looks big standing beside the adults. That's because my family's not at all tall. I'm only 5'2 and my bf's 5'7 I think. So we're definitely vertically challenged in comparison to a lot of people. There are a lot of advantages of having a small bully. One is that we can still carry them around. Imagine carrying 77lb Linus around!? (hehe, sorry @sheshistory, you know we're all gaga over him!)

    There is a lot of Linus to love - that is for sure!

    I wouldn't worry too much. Bulldogs really do take a full two years to get to adult size.

    Truman is almost a year and weighs around 50 pounds or so but has a long way to go in filling out.

    Awww he is perfect! They really all come in an array of sizes. Mocha is 47 pounds and I am trying to keep her around that weight. It is very hard on their joints if they are overweight. Its best to keep them in shape an at their ideal weight.

    He will grow more, they aren't full grown until they are 2 years old. Like at 11 months Samson weighed 45 and at 2 yrs old he weighed 55 lbs, he never grew taller in that year, just wider.
