American Bulldog Size

As a breeder with many years of experience, I can confidently say that predicting the exact size of an American Bulldog can be challenging due to the breed’s genetic diversity. However, there are some general guidelines that can help you get a good idea of how big your American Bulldog will grow.

 

Type plays a role

First, it’s important to understand that American Bulldogs come in two distinct types: the standard and the bully, we breed the bully type. The standard type is generally leaner and more athletic, while the bully type is is stockier. Within each type, there can be a range of sizes.

 

When is an American Bulldog Considered full grown?

In general, an American Bulldog will reach its full size at around 24-30 months of age. Male American Bulldogs usually weigh between 75-95 pounds, while females typically weigh between 60 and 80 pounds. However, it’s not uncommon for individuals to fall outside of this range.

 

Factors influencing growth

There are several factors that can influence an American Bulldog’s size, including genetics, nutrition, and exercise. It’s important to feed your American Bulldog a high-quality diet and provide them with plenty of exercise to help them reach their full potential.

 

Genetics

One way to get an idea of how big your American Bulldog will grow is to look at the size of their parents. If the parents were on the larger side, it’s likely that your American Bulldog will also be larger. However, keep in mind that there are no guarantees when it comes to genetics, and it’s possible for a pup to take after one parent more than the other.

 

In conclusion, predicting the exact size of an American Bulldog can be difficult due to the breed’s genetic diversity. However, by understanding the general size range for the breed and considering factors such as genetics, nutrition, and exercise, you can get a good idea of how big your American Bulldog will grow.
