It's hard to tell in that photo, but she doesn't look underweight to me.

We get the underweight question a lot on this forum... and honestly I have yet to see a dog that is fed daily and exercised well that is underweight. These dogs are meant to be slim, not big fat sausage dogs.

Ur pup looks great from what I can tell in the pic.

Thank you! Most people tell me she is underweight,someone did today which is the reason I asked. They said that they could see her ribs too much,I barely see them!

I think people(esp around here) see bullys and think thats what a pitbull is. People tell me her head is too small and that shes too skinny,pretty sure thats the problem

She looks like a fine pet weight. Ribs have nothing to do with healthy weight. The majority of pet owners think an obese dog is what is healthy which is completely untrue.


Healthy and lean

If you can't see hip bones and a hint of ribs then that's perfect for a really in shape dog. If you can see a waist and maybe the outline of the last rib than that's good pet weight. I think she looks fine.

No problem. No one says Odins too thin or too small. I, in fact, always get people telling me he's gorgeous and "pur pit bull"... bah! Not bad for a blue shelter mutt. People are stupid and wouldn't know what breed of dog bit them in the ass. Literally!
