Can you guys tell me if the leg length looks normal for 9 weeks old? And can anyone tell me what happened to the tail also? Thank you.
It looks a lot like my little guy, only a few weeks older than yours, mine, however is an APBT
/American pitty mix. Dad is registered full APBT
Mama registered pitty, the pitty side is where the short stature and tail come from, you may not have been given the proper info on parentage, possibly because it may not be known the exact mix of the father or if the mother has a mix, with out parental registrations it's hard to tell. If the snout and legs don't lengthen, and you start seeing a good bit of muscle definition, you may have a pitty mix, as the last person said it is hard to tell at 9 weeks, my advice is keep an eye on his growth, look up American Pittys and maybe even ask the vet, sometimes they can see traits and tellers you don't. If it is a pitty mix, worry not they are such sweeties, loyal, loving great with kids and other animals and very loyal, non aggressive but will protect as long as they are loved treated well and bond properly with their humans. Good luck with him, Hope this helps.
