    He looks pretty good to me! Glad your feeding raw! You don’t want him to be too chubby either, he should be lean and muscular and you should be able to feel his ribs and it’s ok if you faintly see them. He looks great, plus he’s still a puppy and he will bulk up in the next year.

    Also here’s a pic of my pup at 5 months

    It is usually better to let them get a little heavier until they are grown.
    When they have finished growing they can be put into shape.
    While young it is better to be a little fatter.

    I'm a fan of letting a pup eat all they want, I have the rest of his life to regulate diet and fitness.
