    Bongo looks great and the food amount is just right.... as Davidh said, he will begin to gain width after a year old

They eat 1 1/2 cups of Fromms Beef twice a day, and my vet says she likes the way they look, they are solid, but lean, with a nice defined waist, you can feel their ribs, but can't see them, and she says she likes the way I keep them.
    They look awesome. Thanks for the help all I'm going to keep him on 2 cups twice a day for awhile and grow him slow.

    I'm late but agree with Everybully else! He looks perfect! I was just at the Vets and they have that big dog chart on the wall. You know, the one in EVERY Vet's office in the country! Lol..and for English Bulldog they say the weight is between 40 and 50 pounds. And that's full grown! My Jake is 52 and full grown..although I swear he is still filling out a bit!

    Tonka is 11 months and 54 lbs on 1.5 cups of Fromm 2x/day and he has a defined waist from the top and a nice tuck up. We play all the time when I am not at work and he gets an hour walk everyday. Every bully is different!

    I agree I think they look awesome!! my guys are about 40ish pounds each... BeBe always looks like she can use a few pounds but I have found that I can't feed her two meals a day or her food doesn't get digested then she throws up so she is watched closely and boy of boy Col. fatty pants well is FAT but healthy!!!

    Keep up the great job

    He looks awesome in his Bully sweater. I think his weight is fine. I like the idea of supplementing with probiotic yogurt plus some fruits and veggies. i give Miss Tallulah carrots, bananas, apples, cheese, broccoli, green beans and pro biotic yogurt in moderation as well. If he is eating and pooping and everything looks normal and he has lots of energy then there is nothing to be concerned about. It is far more concerning to feed too much too soon- extra weight can be hard on the joints before full grown.
