    I question the same thing because my Lola doesnt have a big block head like some I have seen her face is thin and little but I think with time they all fill out as long as they are pure bred!

    Haha....i have been asking myself the same question too. Wondering if i JJ is actually a bulldog boxer mix!!

    Thanks to everyonbe for the comments and information. It has really helped explained a lot and put my mind at ease. JJ eats healthly but seems to be putting the weight to his belly! It was kinda embarassing when i took him for a walk the other day and someone asked if 'He' was pregnant!!

    Here is a pic of him having a nap after dinner.

    So you are telling me there is hope... Mia has filled out quite nicely but her poor head is still so tiny. People call her moose bc of her long snout LOL

    MY Aldo started looking more like a bulldog than a boxer at about 7-8 months!! all three of mine are long legged but are still young.. Aldo definitely has the bulldog face and chest and his head is filling out nicely.. Katara is a bit longer nose and her head quite a bit smaller but in the last couple months she has also filled out nicely.. they are both 11 months.. Bruno is only 2.5 months old.. so he is still a cute bulldog puppy.. they are weird looking between 3-6 months in my opinion...

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    Dear All,

    It is approaching 1month since my original post and as many of you have said bulldogs do not normally start to fill out until between 5-18months. JJ is nearly 5months now and i am starting to see the signs of the bulldog characteristics beginning to show.

    We are still feeding him 3xmeals per day but i have read that around 6months we should reduce this to 2xmeals per day. Can anyone tell me if this means that the total amount should stay the same but it will be just split over two meals rather than 3??

    Here is a updated pics of JJ:

    He looks great!
    as far as the feedings..I'm not sure how much you were feeding him at 3 feedings a day..but when you go to 2.. Do it gradually.. Just increase the two feedings to absorb his midday.. Divide it in half slowly. With Jake he was getting 1/2 cup 3 times a day..and we ended up at 1 cup twice a day. I still give him a Treat at midday if I'm home..but I found if he got a little cookie he wasn't looking at me like he was abused!

    I agree. Have you had him tummy checked out? Make sure there isn't a hernia or something else? When I get photos taken of me...my tummy looks bloated also. My husband assures me it's just bad lighting.

    As for long legs...Vegas has them. Here is a photo I took today. If he had short stubbies....I don't think he would be able to pull this off. He was looking for the lost cheeto.........

    Thanks for the concern and ever since we had him we had noticed he has a bit of a pot belly on him and even more so just after we feed him. It had never entered my mind that he may have a problem with his belly but i am taking him to the vet for a checkup on the weekend so will ask him to have a look at his stomach also.

    Thanks again for all the advice and comments!!
    Regards,

    Jeffrey
