Owners or breeders should chart a dog’s weight on a daily basis to ensure that the puppy is continuing to grow and gain weight. No weight gain signifies a potential health issue and requires attention by a veterinarian.
According to DogBreedInfo.com, bulldogs produce litters of four to five puppies. When fully grown, this medium-sized breed can weigh up to 55 pounds.
At birth, the average bulldog puppy weighs between 10 and 14 ounces, but they may be as small as 5 ounces and as large as 18 ounces.
As the puppy grows, the owner or breeder should expect to see a 1 pound weight gain per week. By the end of the first four weeks, the puppy should weigh around 4 pounds.
At eight weeks, the puppy should be approximately 8 pounds in size. However, some dogs may weigh slightly more or slightly less.
As expected, at 12 weeks the puppy should weigh somewhere around 12 pounds. Of course, variations may occur and some dogs may weigh more or less than 12 pounds.
