    when does the average pit bull stop growing ???

    I bought a pit bull awhile ago shes about 10 months old now , and she seems pretty small to me, shes about 40 pounds but fairly skinny, I;m just curious is this normal? when do pit bulls really start to bulk out and finish growing I was reading on the net it can take up too 2 years?

    thanks

    It depends. Some lines mature more slowly than others. My dog, for example. She seemed to stop growing around 8 months, but she didn't really seem to mature until she was around 2.5 or 3 years old.

  3. The muscle comes with age and conditioning. I personal like my pits small. Males around 50 lbs. and females around 35-40 lbs. True to form.

    It all depends on what bloodline you have and what size the ancestors are. I have a four year old Eddington male that didn't stop adding weight until he was 3.5 years old. My colby female was at adult height and weight at 11months.

    From my experience the average APBT stops growing in height tween 8 months to a year and then fills out and matures until 2-3 years old. As others have said it depends on the bloodline. It also depends on environmental factors such as a dog with health issues, a runt, worms, quality of food

    I don't think that my Patcheeno fully matured until he was 5.
