How often do you bathe Champ and what food does he eat?

A good diet helps, also if you bathe too often it dries out the natural oils in the coat.

I like flaxx seed oil in general as a suppliment.
I give mine a table spoon each of human grade cold pressed from the health food store.

All pups are born with blue eyes. Eyes usually change color until about 6 months of age. They may be amber colored as your pup matures which is very common with red nose APBTs
Patcheeno, my red nose boy, went from blue to green to finally amber.

Good luck w/ your little cutie! :thumbsup:

Awe cute brindle baby! :thumbsup: As for weight there is no real average weight per say. It depends on the line of your dog, the food you are feeding and other factors. As long as the pup is healthy and not to the extremes of fat or boney looking I'd say you are fine. Good luck w/ your new pup!

Well, as the old saying goes Size doesn't matter LOL. Different lines grow differently. Some faster than others. I personally like a well proportioned well muscled dog. Genetics plays a big part on what his structure will look like as an adult. You can't just go off of the parents you have to also l...

Hi, Agility is great and APBTs excel at it. It is great for bonding too! Sorry I don't know of any schools in your area, hopefully somebody will chime in on that for you. To save time so that I don't have to cut and paste you can see my posts on agility at: http://www.thera-pits.com/forums/viewforum...

Yes, it is structural. Though some dogs can have structural problems due to improper diet, but that must be corrected before the growth plates close and most of the time with easty westy dogs (turned out feet) that is not the case IMO Also, sometimes when a young dogs chest drops it is slightly corr...
