Avg Weight of 5-6 Month Pit?

Hey,

I bought my pit last week (my 3rd pit actually). He's supposidely between 5-6 months. He was underfed and has very little muscle mass. The guy I bought him from most likely didnt take good care of him. When I weighted him last week he was 24.8 lbs I believe. Is this average? If so, or not, how much do you think he will weight when full size? And how long do they take to get to full size? He's from a razor's edge gotti line also and I know those pits are supposed to be big but because of his malnutrition I dont know if he doesnt have much time to catch up and be as big as he would have been..

I give him a vitamin supplement everyday that my vet gave me. I also try to feed him 3 x a day but he doesn't sseem to eat much of his food at all (unless I put some chicken or something else in)

Just so you know, that's a AM Bully line. My Athena is from the Gotti line and she is just now 5 months. She is 40 lbs. Size will vary. I've seen big and small from the Gotti/RE lines. Post some pics!

From the pics I've posted, some think she might be a tad over weight, but I don't think so. In person she looks great. She's still a pup so she's still got a lot of growing to do. Once she gets older I'll start working her to get her toned up. My Smudge (mutt) on the other hand is a little porky! LOL! He runs around like crazy but just really holds his weight. We've managed to knock about 5 lbs off of him since we switched food so it's going in the right direction.

To the OP, post some pics when you can. It'll give people a better idea of the condition your pup is in.

Just curious, you said you're giving him vitamin supplement? What kind?

I've read similar articles to this before & read it's unhealthy to give a puppy weight gaining vitamin supplements. Which is why I ask what kind?

I would just get him on a regular natural nutrition diet, with supplemental milk mixed in his food. There's natural fat in the milk & that's what I did for my boy Lex when I got him. He came from a byb & he was half the size of his siblings, of course this was at 6 weeks of age. But I kept him on a regular diet, adding eggs & puppy milk here every other feed. He's now on a normal diet of dog food & weighs a good 65lbs

Was just curious as to why you would purchase a dog from someone who had the dog malnourished due to lack of care? And on top of that you say the dog is supposedly that age? If they didn't even know the age of the dog...this tells me lots of bad things right off the bat...as far as the dog being gotti or edge...or a mixture of both...I would highly doubt that without the proper paperwork...sounds like someone gave you the common story of a byb...the only way this story would get more classic is if they told you he/she will produce blues lol...I always hear idiots spout off the same byb non-sense...I would suggest you get the dog on a high quality feed...and enjoy it for what it is...your pet...best of luck to you...
