    Default Is my Bully too skinny or really fit? lol

    So louie is about to be six months in a couple of days and in my opinion he seem to be very thin.. he was the second smallest one out of the litter and since the first month he has been thin with long hind legs.. the bulldogs that i've seen that are his age are much more chubby and with smaller chubby legs.. people tell me that he looks alot like a boxer -__- lol he is always hungry and very active so i feed him three times a day and also squeeze in some chopped green beans.. you would think by feeding him three times aday he would be a lot more thicker but nope.. skinny bully :l i have no problem with him being so thin but his ribs are visible and my family keeps telling me to feed him lol.. oh! and let me tell you.. he loooooves jumping around running at the dog park they have little obstacle courses and he absolutely loves them! i honestly believe he could compete in agility courses lol well anyways if any of yall have had the same problem well i guess concern i would really like to hear about your bully's

    We do need pics or sumpin! Just remember, you can't compare Bully's, even in the same litter. They continue to fill out and change for about 2 years..no way can you see "The Finished Product"!! Now.....

    Miss Tallulah didn't look like a Bully for awhile because she was leggy and trim. I would wonder sometimes if she had Boxer in her. She was cute but it was hard to see the Bulldog in her during the awkward adolescence. 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.

    Some do look like boxers, Lola did for a long time and she just here the past month has started to fill out some but she still looks tall and thin. I think each one is different but I have worried several times over the same thing as you!

    I think my Lola is part weenie dog, part jack rustle because she is really hyper and never sleeps, and part boxer because she is so tall.

    Feeding three times a day is fine, however, you didnt say how much and of what food (Brand) Low Quality Food you need to feed a larger quanity, so the 'cheaper' isnt always 'less expensive' in the long run.

    and I agree with everyone else Pictures please

    in general you shouldnt be able to "see" the ribs, but you should be able to feel them. I freak out all the time, I either think Herman has too much fat or is too skinny. Right now I'm in my afraid of him being too skinny stage

    anyway can you post pics of louie looking down from the top and a good side profile?

    I wouldn't worry about him looking boxer-ish they go through some really awkward stages in the first year, as RaRett said you should be able to feel his ribs but not see them. Although a picture would help too
