    Default Hello I am new to this forum!

    Hello. I am new to this forum and have a question about my female 9 month English Bulldog. We were told by the breeder when we got her at 8 weeks old that she was the runt of the litter. She is just so small and lanky. Her head is very narrow and her chest is very narrow as well. We just recently got a 7 month old boy English Bully and he is HUGE compared to her, his head and the size of his paws and just the way he is built is totally different from her. She is the first EB that I have got as an 8 week old puppy. Is this normal? I have attached two pictures of her that were taken a few days ago. I have read forums on this and a lot of people say between 9-12 months is when everything starts to widen out and her jaw is supposed to drop and get the underbite too. She is just so small and her head is so narrow it is hard for me to picture it widening so much over the next few months...I don't even think she would look like the same dog if that happens. Thanks so much!

    Hello and to EBN!!! So glad you found us!

    Some will go through a lang 'boxer' looking stage and around 16 months start growing out which is when they fill in. I tagged a few members that can maybe give some more insight

    Thank you. I have read that some go through the boxer looking phase too. She is actually shorter than my other bully but he is very wide. Thank you for tagging other members, I really appreciate all the feedback.

    Hi there @Mama23Bullies

    First off, I would like to say hello and tell you your little girl is very adorable, such a sour mug face she has!

    Bulldogs come in all shapes and sizes, even within the same litter. They pick up genes from their entire linage and some can be tall, some short, some stocky, some very few wrinkles, some loaded with them, some thick boned some tiny boned.

    However, two things we know for sure. Bullies do not grow outward until their are finished growing upward. Their chest area is the next part to grow, and lastly comes the head. They will continue to grow and change up to the age of 3 years old. The other thing we know is that males are much bigger and wider than females, and have much wider heads as well. So it makes perfect sense that the boy looks so much bigger as well.

    Yes your little girl will broaden. How much, you never know. But she is all EB and she is just a petite thing, and this is one of the things I love about this breed the most, is how different and unique they are from each other, just like humans, no two are exactly alike.

    Everyday is a party when you own a bulldog!

    Thank you so much. I have been a little worried that she is not full EB so thank you for the re-assurance. I do have papers on her but I guess since she is the first one I have owned from a puppy it is a little different to see her grow. My first EB, Baylee we got when he was 2 years old and he has really changed through the years too. And, yes you are right they do come in all shapes and sizes and I have seen that on many sites and then looking at the before and after's here. I just can't wait until she starts to fill out...we are anxious to see how she progresses but at the same time love that she has that puppy energy! She is really a sweet girl.

    Hey there. Welcome. Your baby is beautiful! My Dudley will be 3 in December...He stands about 22 inches tall and weighs 80 lbs...a big boy. His father was a little taller and weighed about 90 lbs. His mother, just a little shorter and weighed 55 lbs...all shapes and sizes. I even wondered about Dudley when he was 8 or 9 months old -- and I had seen his parents! He looked so tall, leggy and not very "bully-like"...but that all changed. Don't worry...you have an adorable baby bully!

    Welcome to the site and your baby is just beautiful. As others have said, they come in all shapes and sizes and males are generally larger than females. They always grow up,(tall) before they grow out (widen). they will start to widen after their first year of age and until around age 3.
