It wasn't until about 8 months that she started to fill out and get a barrel chest which made her legs look shorter and her body wider. Her head got thicker and her under jaw started to protrude. Now she is such a pretty girl bulldog. It's true each Bully is unique in how they develop but at the end they blossom into big beautiful Bullies.
    I am suffering from the same things Izzy is lean and long and tall! Yesterdat a lady even asked me if she was mixed... which did not make me happy! I saw Izzy's brother and he is completely different than her... she is 5 months old, 28 lbs and tall!!! Can't wait for my baby to start to get wider!

    @Louie89 - have you tried to add extra things to his diet? Maybe he is more energetic and also burns more calories than other bullies and he could use the additional calories? I would imagine that green beans would be a great snack for a bully that is more out of shape. Have you tried cheese or peanut butter?

    Even dogs from the same litter can develop at completely different rates. It is not unusual at all. Have faith there is a big beautiful bully that will emerge from that gawky little fur kid. But I know what you mean - I couldn't hardly wait for the Bulldog traits start to emerge. On our walks people would ask me what kind of dog she was. Now everyone says wow what a pretty Bulldog!

    I've always been told that you should be able to see the first rib until your baby is 1, better to be a little on the light side then on the heavy because it's far more difficult to take the weight off then it is to put on. I think Louie is one fantastic looking little bull. He's lucky to have you!!

    I agree with everyone else your baby looks healthy to me. My Tess was the same way she just now is starting to fill out and she is 15 months.

    Sounds like you are feeding him plenty, have you had him checked for parasites? He looks a little too thin. You should not be able to see his ribs. Bullies should have a little waist, but he has too much of one. I would get him check for parasites if you haven't in a while. If he has no parasites and is very active you may have to increase his food intake some. They will get leggy at that age and will fill out when they get around a year old.

    as others have suggested... if he is very active you may need to feed him more... but I would also get him checked to make sure he does not have any issues
