Do a search on WDJ's top dog foods. That would be the first step.
What does your vet think about her weight?

Is she a pup?
Pup's go through a lanky/skinny period.
I understand wanting to put weight on a too skinny pup, but I hope you aren't wanting to feed her extra to "beef" her up in hopes to get a big ol' beefy pit, because pit bulls aren't supposed to be beefy.
Also, a lot of times what most think is too skinny for pit bulls is actually a good size.
How's her muscle tone? Can you see her ENTIRE rib cage without touching her and with her standing still?

I agree, I'd find out what your vet thinks about her weight.
And I'd also check out those food sites, as well. :))

Yup! I can see my dog's ribs when she pants, or coils tight, but cannot see them when she's standing still or relaxed. It's ok to see some ribs, sometimes.

I can't really say anything that hasn't been said....there are much better foods your puppy could be eating, but if she doesn't have worms, and she has energy and seems happy, then she probably isn't too thin and her body weight will just settle where it wants to.
