Their weights sound about right to me. Maybe your friends or the people saying they are too small, don't know what a real APBT is. :thumbsup: They are cute!!

High quality puppy food should be all a growing dog needs. Plus pups and teenage dogs are lanky for the first year or two and THEN they start to fill out. You wouldnt feed a baby extra food because you want him to be buff when he get older, LOL
Plus size has nothing to do with being healthy or a good dog. This is a great time to socialize and train your pups so they will be good dogs when they do get big!
There are a lot of people who think pit bulls are supposed to be HUGE and thats really not the case. Some bloodlines do get bigger then others but what matters is your bond and quality time.

I think they sound about right. My 4 month old pup Lincoln weighs 27 lbs but I think he is a moose. lol A friend of mine has a female pup the same age as Lincoln and she is only about 18 lbs. You sure have some cute pups though.

Why is it that everyone wants a bigger dog?

The pit bull is supposed to be a medium sized, balanced, athletic dog. If you want a bigger dog, get a breed that's supposed to be a bigger dog.

Exactly it's like people who want bigger rottweiler. BIGGER ROTTWEILERS, what is WRONG with people.

***kennel link removed***

Is a good example :yucky:

Just get good quality food and exercise your pups don't worry about vitamins, at the most worry about joint supplements

how about her views that rottweilers aren't from germany but italy and that's why they're supposed to be mastiff like (her dogs aren't even good for mastiffs they just look like fat pig rolls)
