I guess it all deends on the bloodlines and what her parents looked like. What does the vet say about her weight?

the vet likes her weight. we don't know what her parents look like, we got her from this lady that went to kentucky and got Roxy then when she came home her husband said Roxy had to go. my son goes to school with her son and we are trying to find out more about Roxy's bloodline.

usually what ever the weight is at 6months, double that and that should be there adult weight. The weight your dog is now sounds about right

Actually that is incorrect you take the weight at 4 months and double it to get an approximate adult weight. So if you kept a record of her weight at 4 months that would give you a better estimate. Since you don't have papers or info on the heritage it is probably the best way to guess.

Most purebred APBTs are between 30-60lbs give or take a few lbs as adults.

What counts is that she is happy and healthy so if the vet says she is fine I wouldn't worry about it. Her proportions and overall health are more important than just the actual weight alone.:woof:

You can't compare your dogs weight and size to other dogs unless you are comparing dogs from the same line that have been consistently line bred. There are so many factors that come into play.

Like everybody else is saying, it all depends on how she's bred. I had to start working 60 hours a week to get my girl that heavy lol. Couch time can really put it on 'em quick.

ok looks liek this post turned into a weight contest....:hammer:

to teh OP, ur dog sounds right on track. the way i see it, if she is healthy and happy she is at a fine weight. i dont weigh kenya anymore, becuz that doesnt matter. ill weigh her at year but there is no reason to weigh them unless ur showing or ur trying to prove something by having a 100lb dog ya know.

not going to argue about about this with you. However, I said USUALLY 6months.
i must say... it is 4 months. i dont know wher u got ur info but someone fed u lies my friend:roll:

6 months and 45lbs is PERFECT! if u wanted and 80lb dog you should have chosen an AmBully. APBT arent meant to be 80lbs, and if your chosing for size then why did u get an APBT? were u not aware that APBTs dont grow to be big dogs? did u think APBT and Ambullys were teh Same "pitbull" they are two very different dogs in alot of differnt ways, but visbile differences are the first to be noticed. i dont mean to jump down ur throat but its upsetttin to see taht u chose your dog for size and not for teh breed itself.

my dog is 7months and around 40lbs and i think she looks perfect! idk, you should really research the breed BEFORE gettin one as a pet... ANYBREED for that matter...
