He's adorable but he looks a bit over weight to me actually.

Here's an example of a healthy weight chart. I would label your pup as "heavy". Also this chart has Labradors on it which run heavier than APBT.

I see a waist!!! Good job on all your hard work so far!! I do think he's got another 5-10 pounds to go though...

I'd say still overweight, as well. "Heavy" from that chart. Keep it up - still got some weight to take off!

Have you looked into switching to a lower calorie food? Also are you sure no one is sneaking them scraps? my parents are notorious for feeding scraps even after I request they don't.

It can be SO hard to drop weight off a dog, I find its easier to plump up skinny rescues than lean out fat ones.

well i hid all the treats lol. and today i caught them, they fed him boiled pork for breakfast instead of his dogfood. i found out because i found vomit on the floor, hes too used to dogfood he cant eat other food. so yeah that freaked my parents out so they said they were going to feed him dogfood instead. i usually feed them both meals but i started school again this week so im not home for that meal.

parents are the worst! lol
they're so much harder to train than dogs ;)

i'm having trouble keeping weight off my dog too, but she's recovering from surgery so she stays at my moms house while i'm at work (otherwise she'll chew her incision). my mom feeds her scraps CONSTANTLY. it drives me insane!

We have been working with our vet to get some weight on Jazmine.. she eats well and is very healthy only very thin looking at the pics she was on the leaner side of the thin pic but not emaciated.. she's now at a good weight she was 48lbs at her last visit 2 weeks ago so the vet said to go back to her normal serving size.

He also thinks our new pup Penny is to thin so we are now increasing her food a bit too.. the vet would like to us to get 2 lbs on her..

the result is already fine for me, but i think it would be better if you would continue to work him out to start shaping up muscles and thereby losing some pounds....just my lil cents, perhaps because of my biased preference on musclular dogs of whatever type...ty
