Is my AM bulldog even an AM bulldog?
by BodAMBD on 29 May 2012 - 22:11
|My American Bulldog (as I was told) is 6 months now and weighs 30 pounds. I believe she is the hybrid type and mixed with a bull-mastiff. I am now raising questions as to if she is really an AM bulldog. She has the looks of one. Not the weight of one though. I don't know what to do. If you guys could help me that would be greatly appreciated. :):)|

|I don't see any bullmastiif at all in your puppy. She is either a standard type and some time they look really houndy for a while. Or she is crossed with Dogo.|
30 lbs is very tiny for a bulldog. My pupy is a year old and only 65 lbs and i consider her small.
Give her time as this breed is slow growing and some time throws funky looking puppies.
You don't have any paper wor or anything on her do you?
For sure she is not Johnson type.

|Do me a favor, take a photo of your puppy's teeth I want to see her bite and size of the teeth.|

|Sorry for the late reply. I've been busy. But here are pictures of her teeth. Tell me if you need another angle and stuff. :)|

|Well from the photos i'd say she has a slight underbite, or maybe a reverse scissor bite. Well with in normal for a bulldog of standard type. She also appears to have all her adult teeth. So 6 months sounds about right. Maybe she is the runt of the litter? Not all runts stay small. My runt turned out to be about 70 lbs. My current dog is holding steady at 65. And my older female is also only about 75 and she is 9 years old.|
Your most likely going to end up with a bulldog with a head like mine. This is Payne. And she has the longer muzzle and less blocky head then the more bully type dogs.
And do your dog a favor, don't worry about weight. So many people brag about how much their dogs weigh. Those dogs are either fat, or the people are only guessing and not actually putting the dog on a scale. Or they are just making it up to make their dogs seem larger. I'd rather have a dog in excellent shape no matter what they weigh. And i'n pretty strict about not letting my dogs get fat.
What are you feeding your pup? Is your vet happy with her build and weight?
