Question how much should a 1yr old pit weigh??

My brindle is almost one year old she goes about 40-45 pounds I was wondering what the avg. weight is. Also if she is under should i worry or not.
I am feeding her natures recipie because she has very bad allergies and every other dog food makes her break out in hives. Is this a good dog food?

sounds about right for a true apbt. If she is of bullie lines then she'd be under weight. But that is a great weight. If she doesnt look skinny and looks healthy, more than likely her weight is doing good.

post some pics.

Nature's Recipe is a middle-of-the-road kind of food. If your dog does well on it, I wouldn't worry. As for her weight, my girls weigh 45 and 46 pounds, roughly. In the 40s range is a nice standard size for a female. As far as if she's underweight for her, we wouldn't know that without seeing pictures.

Correct weight is tricky. There are many variables that come into play such as type and level of conditioning. The weight sounds right for a standard APBT and a good rule of thumb is if you cant see more than the outline of the back two ribs she should be ok. A picture helps, especially over the internet but she sounds ok. How much do you feed her?

Well I give her about 2-3 cups a day but not all at once. She loves to eat and drink. Is this what I should be feeding her or should I give more or less? You cant see back bones or anything like that but you can see her last 2 ribs.

how active is your dog?

personally i give my dog (6 months old 45lb) a total of almost 2 cups a day once in the morning once at night to break it up for him. he is pretty active and i give him a high quality kibble so he doesnt really need as much. how much your dog needs really depends on your dog and its lifestyle and the kibbles you feed. the information you gather here is valuable but honestly i would take what other people do into consideration but ultimately you have to feed based on your dogs needs. What is good for my boy may not be good enough for the next dog and visa versa.

I feed pups 4 cups a day, pups are pups and I want them getting all they need.


The reason you will hear that pups over 50-60lbs are not pure APBT is that is based on the "true APBT game dog" standard. There is a HUGE gap in opinions on this particular breed as to what is true, ect ect. MY opinion is that the origianl standard, the one created FIRST is the true standard by which things should be measured.

this is the UKC revised standard of a APBT please scroll down to "height and Weight" just about the bottome of the page.
United Kennel Club: American Pit Bull Terrier (Revised November 1, 2008)

this is the proof of that standard.dogs that dispaly similar charateristics to the APBT but are larger are American Bullies. I have tried to search the standards of this breed but since it is a "newer breed" and not reconized by any legitamite clubs I can not site the standards. American Bullies tend to be larger and stocky hence they weigh more then APBT. They are simply a different breed. Judging from your avatar and the weight you posted for your dog at 9 months alone your dog sounds like he is an American Bully. Noth that there is anything wrong with that just trying to answer your question about proof that they are different. Hope that helps.

Trutildeath, people breeding to the standard aren't going to intentionally produce a dog that is that large. True abberations do appear, but if a person is breeding generation after generation to make them bigger, that's not an APBT anymore. It'd be no different than if someone started breeding Great Danes smaller and smaller to get a "pocket Dane."

I really don't know the average for the entire breed but mine would usually be 25-35lbs at that age.

Yes if she is under (or over) weight you should be concerned, but its really not a big deal. Just feed more or less. You will know if she is under or over by looking at her and can adjust feeding accordingly.
