She's a puppy. She will fill out when she's full grown, just give her some time.

Answer by The Dream

you dont want to really work a pup. just games like fetch and going on walks every day mixed with a decent dogfood will get great results especially with this breed. if you supplement an apbt and try to bulk it up you will just have a fat dog. hit me up when ur dog is closer to a yeah and i will give u some more exercises. if you work a pup to hard now you will regret it! if u want more info hit me up

Answer by hahachick

you shouldn't be trying to add "muscle tone" to a puppy. Just walk her at least once a day to allow her to get excercise. It can be damaging to their developing bones and muscles if you are trying to push them too much. Just feed her a healthy dog food geared towards puppies and mother nature will take care of the rest

    At 18 to 24 months of age you can start to work your dog.Let the pup mature.

    Drop the blue nose description.It's an American Pit Bull Terrier that happens to have a blue nose.It does NOT denote a different type or breed.It's not rare nor special.

    Choose a quality food.You can get reliable food ratings from this site.

    Depending on how well or poorly the dog was bred is going to be the key factor.Genetics are going to be the key factor in your dogs physical make up and temperament.

    Here are some links to pit bull specific forums.This will give you all the info you need to raise a healthy well mannered dog.

    You do NOT need to ADD muscle to any American Pit Bull Terrier. Especially a 4 month old puppy!

    Feed a GOOD food. Give her the exercise and obedience training she needs.

    You do NOT supplement these dogs. They are nothing but skin, bone and muscle without supplements.

    Believe me, I own one!!!
