Genetics will determine how big he gets. Forced exercise can cause permanent damage to a young pup's joints. Extra vitamins or supplements can cause growth issues too. For the record, a well bred Pit Bull should not be a large dog. Huge Pits with giant heads and freakishly thick necks are the result of poor breeding.

Helium. Seriously, if you wanted a large breed dog, you should have gotten one. Pit bulls should be lean and muscular, not big. Those pittipotamus 'american bully' pits are nothing more than mutts, and are an insult to true APBTs
Answer by Nekkid Truth!
he will only get as big as genetics determine he will be.
feed a good diet, and provide proper exercise (nothing too strenuous.. you dont want to injure growing joints!)

I agree an disagree wit alot of you. Genetics is the key your dog will b as big as the bloodline it comes from. Every now an then u will have a pup or two every few litters that will be bigger or smaller than way it’s genetics are set up. An as for bullies or other so called pitbulls being mutts. All dogs are mutts. Original pitbulls never got over 40 or 50 pounds. American pitbulls are the foundation. Bully breed has more bulldog blood mixed with the American pitbull giving it the short low wide look. The bigger pitbulls 100+ pounds have more mastiff or bullmastiff blood. It all was really went for a certain look or so called quality. They all have the same blood and in my opinion are all good dogs from the APBT to the heavy weights and the Bullies. Red nose to the blue nose and all colors an coat patterns.

a 'full blooded red nose' pit bull is probably NOT a purebreed. He's a street-pitbull…a dog with generic traits shared by several bully-breed dogs.
having said this, you shouldn't even be considering making you 15 week old dog bigger! He needs to grow into his body. Don't even think about giving him any kind of supplements until he's AT LEAST a year an a half, if not two years old. By then, his bones have finished growing.
giving supplements to a dog that young will make him grow to fast and cause joint problems much earlier in life than they should.
the size of a dog is also determined by his parents. If his parents were big and muscular, then he will look that way when he is mature, not before then.
If his parents are wide and deep-chested with huge heads and squat legs, they ARE NOT PIT BULLS. Those are AmBullies and I really wish idiots would stop calling them pit bulls.
