New bully pup owner. :)

Hey guys, I just recently got a bully puppy and I'd like to ask a few questions. Aside from dog food and multivitamins, do I need to give my pup something else? Also, with regards to ear cropping, can you guys suggest a crop style that would look good on my pup? Thanks!

He's so cute! We are new owners also, so I have no food suggestions about that, but I really hope some people chime in and encourage you not to crop.
They look so much cuter intact!

Check under health and nutrition stickies for food. There's a thread called food rating guide or chart. That should help you out.

As for crops there are lots of threads on here about that also. You want to find a vet and see pictures of their work that they've done.

Well they do look pretty cute now that he's still a puppy, but when he's already grown up, the ears just don't look right anymore, also I plane on showing him and cropped looks a lot better IMO.

I was watching a dog fashion show in a mall and was forced to join cus all the people were coming near my pup, though all the other contestants were toy breeds, my pup won "most adorable" award.

I did ask the vet for previous jobs and he seems to be doing good, also, I'm asking what would look good specifically on my puppy with his facial features.

As for the food, maybe my question wasn't so clear, I wasn't asking for any kind of dog food as I have a very limited choice where I live, I'm asking if I need other vitamins and supplements for my pup.

Ingredients are what you'll want to look at. I personally use 4Health from Tractor Supply Co. It's grain free. Acana and Orijen are really good brands but a little more pricy. The guide as I stated above has lots of different brands listed in it also and I believe have grades a-f for them. People feed a variety of different food here. Some feed raw others do kibble. What kind of brands do you have available to you?

We have:
lamb pro
alpo
optima(optimum)
vitality
natural balance
pedigree
breeder's choice
bow wow
holistic


That's all there is... But the local vet suggested i need to add some carbs to my pup's meal, because our climate here in the Philippines is much warmer and so the dogs burn more calories while moving and playing.

I think there's a few on here who use natural balance. And I think holistic isn't bad either. I haven't heard of the other brands though. You can look at the food rating chart and it can tell you how to rate the brands and pick out the best one

If you have a local Tractor Supply Company, that's who sells the 4Health.

I am fond of the Medium crop, but if the vet is truly good they should be able to look at the dog and suggest what they think will work with the pup the best.

I like the crop on that adult dog and would go with that size on the pup. I like a short crop.

med to short is what I would do for a bully pup. The crop on the adult in the last pic looks good. Super cute puppy, can't wait to see more pics.

Yeah I'd do that, I'm leaning towards vitality and lamb pro, might give holistic a consideration if it really gives a lot more than the 2 for the price. From what I understand, here in our country, the dog food could contain a little grain and it would actually help since our climate is pretty hot and it gives energy.

DO you think this crop would look good on my pup?
