    Default New member question

    Hi,

    New member here and new bully owner. Charly is 6 months old 48 lbs and just full of beans! We are hoping to get him off the puppy food soon. He is on blue wilderness puppy food and growing well. His head and neck are not fully developed compared to his body size. When should we expect him to get more proportionate? Also should we step up to a more adult food soon. Fear is he ,if hot be growing a bit fast as he has shown signs of limping on his front right? It goes away but find that if he runs and plays hard he will get the limp.

    Pics of Charly below for size. We think he is a good avg male. Hoping to get him to the 70 lbs muscle size of his dad😉

    to EBN... he will not be full grown till about two years old--- up the fist year, out the second year with some additional head growth the third year. You can switch to adult food at 8 months without issues.

    Charley is one good looking boy

    You can switch his food now if you wish. We usually take ours off puppy food at 7 months of age. As others have said he will fill out his second year, and not full stop growing until around 3 years of age. First year up, then second year out.
