    No way to know breed without a pedigree. Without one he's considered a mutt.

    He does look overweight. How much are you feeding and what are you feeding?

    Muscle tone will depend on diet, exercise, and genetics. If the parents were not bulky dogs, he likely won't be either. Best you can do is provide a quality diet and a good exercise routine and let nature determine the rest, although at this age, you shouldn't be worrying about muscle. He still has tons of growing and filling out to do.

    Wow, that's quite a bit of food. My 70lb, very active 1yr old dog eats 3 cups a day. I would definitely cut that down by a cup or more until he's back at a healthy weight, cause he does look quite overweight already. Extra weight, especially on a pup, can cause all sorts of health issues down the line.

    BullyMax is a total scam, IMO, and even if it worked, there would be absolutely no reason to be giving it to such a young puppy. I would cut that out ASAP. Let your pup be a pup and grow how he's supposed to, worry about muscle later on.

    Hell, my last Dane pup wasn't eating that much at that age and he was about 60 pounds.
