I need some help. Me and my firend both own american bulldogs. My boy has been 50 lbs for a while now and is almost 10 months old and his female is about 4-5mnths old and only weighs 37lbs. the vet is telling him that his pup is not a purebred even though that is what we were told when we got her. can someone please give me some advice on their growth habits cause I thought my boy was going to be much bigger then he actually is too. I love him but I was thinking 100 to 125 full grown but it seems he has bottomed out.

There are a couple of different lines of AB's. The "bully" and the "standard". Bullies get larger, 125lb adult male is common, and have the typical smushed bully face and extra bowed front legs. Standards can be much samller, 50-60lbs adult male ,and have the longer muzzle. My breeder friend has much useful information on his website. Check it out

He doesn't sound like he's gonna be very big. thinking

I've seen some smaller American bulldogs. But, I don't see it too often.

I think the standard is something between 80 or 90 to 110 or 120? Something like that?

But, I've heard of American bulldogs being a bit smaller. So, it is possible that the dog is purebred.

My American bulldog is 95 lbs. He's pretty stout. He is very, very, very strong

Just got weighed yesterday. 10 weeks and I weigh 16 lbs. The Scott line is smaller and more athletic than the Johnson line (which is my line). Your dog could be mixed, or it could be a Scott, or it could be out of a growth spurt. Dogs are like humans, they grow in spurts. Dogs grow for 1.5 to 2 years. He still has a while to go. smile

I know this is old, but maybe it will help someone that wants to know later.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. My male was around 90lbs until the age of 15 months, then all of a sudden he hit a massive growth spurt. In the following 6 months he put on another 30 lbs. Now he's 5 yrs old and right around 132lbs. So just keep feeding him and exercising him and he'll grow into his potential.

There are a few different types of American Bulldogs. Some are smaller than others. I have a Johnson American Bulldog, which are usually the bigger of the American Bulldogs. My puppies father was 130 pounds and her mother was 110 pounds. Look up the other breeds of American Bulldogs...
