Does anyone on this forum know anything about the growth rate of english bulldogs? At what age are they full grown? Mine are 6 and 7 months old now and already weigh about 45 pounds each. The breed standard says they are supposed to be about a 50 to 55 pound dog. Any ideas?
Well they actually can grow wrinkles til they are 3 years old or so. But they are usually as big as they are gonna get at a year old. I have 3 english bulldog pups that are 5,6,and 7 months old and the 7 month old is a male and it wouldnt suprise me if he was 50 pounds already he is just huge and I can barely pick him up at 6 months old he was 42 pounds and I know he has gained since then. My 5 month old which is a female was 25 pounds at 12 weeks old and my 6 month old which is a female was 37 pounds at 5 months old. I have seen some English bulldogs that are 80 pounds and its just according to how long their legs are and if they are long backed and everything. And my male is not long legged or long backed he is solid. Do you have pictures of your bulldog pups? I would love to see what they look like! These pictures are older and I need to update them!
My girl Gretta is the same color as Lilly, but she has a dark brindle patch down one side of her face. I call her the Phantom of the opera dog. My boy Dino has the same basic coloring as Mason but he also has a red or fawn mask. I'm not sure how they classify the colors. I had another girl, Molly, before I got Gretta but she had hypoplastic trachea and developed severe pneumonia. Treatment didn't work and they had to put her down. That was devastating. Molly was a beautiful little solid white baby girl. She was only 4 months old when I lost her. I noticed on Masons page that it says one of his nicknames is "babyboy". That's what I call my Dino too. I think we have a lot in common with respect to our doggies. I haven't learned how to post pictures yet or I'd put some up for you. Thanks for responding to my post. It sounds like my dogs are basically growing at the same rate as yours. They must be normal! Good!
Yours sound pretty mine are soo spoiled it is pathetic. Mason and Lilly are also show dogs. I call Mason baby boy all the time or mama's boy he is probably the most spoiled and he loves to cuddle. Hopefully you will find out soon how to post pictures! I love to see other peoples bulldogs they are just so darn cute! Sorry about Molly:( These 3 are my first bulldogs and i've learned alot since having them. Mine have had hives several times and Mason's face gets really really red sometimes like under his wrinkle at his nose but still I will always have a bulldog now.
