14 Week Old Pitbull Puppy

A day in the life with Mia the American Bully (Bully Pit) puppy. Mias eighth week—14 weeks old, 25 pounds, 13 3/4 inches from the ground to the highest point of the shoulders (the withers).

Mia carries herself a lot differently now than she did her first few weeks. The majority of a dogs language is spoken in body posture and gestures. When she first arrived her body posture said she was ready to take over this new pack. She tried her hardest to control everyone and everything around her. Not because she was a bad puppy, but because she is super intelligent, confident and strong-minded. She has what it takes to be a leader and if she was living in the wild with only a pack of dogs she would do a darn good job at it. The fact is however, Mia lives with humans and the canine animal and the human race cannot safely coexist with the animal in charge.

7 to 8 Week old Pitbull puppy

Pitbull puppies now will be completely eating puppy food. They will also be preparing to leave their mother and go to new homes. It’s important not to bring a Pitty puppy home any earlier than this. Your 2 month old Pitbull puppy will still be eating its food in at least 4 meals a day.

At 12 weeks, or 3 months, you can divide your puppy’s food allowance into three meal times, rather than 4. Although, this transition won’t necessarily happen straight away. If your puppy gets an upset stomach when you change to 3 meals, stick with 4 for a little longer.

To get a rough idea of your Pitbull’s adult weight at this time, divide his current weight in pounds by his age in weeks. Then, multiply this number by 52. This is the best time to do this for a medium-sized breed like the American Pitbull Terrier, but take the result with a pinch of salt – it’s not always 100% accurate!

By 4 months old, your Pitbull puppy will look much more adult than when you brought him home. At the end of this month, your puppy will be around half of his adult height.

You can reduce your 6 month old Pitbull’s meals from 3 times a day to 2. But, like before, if there are any stomach upsets, just wait a while longer. Your puppy will likely be around two thirds of his adult weight now.
