At What Age Do Boston Terrier Dogs Start to Gain Weight?


Here is a question from Virginia who wanted to ask other Boston Terrier owners when their dogs started to gain weight.

She says : “Our Boston terrier was born 1/3/2015 and is now 5 months old.  She is very thin even though she weighs about 13 pounds.  She has very long legs.  I gave never had one that looks quite like her.  At what age do they start to fatten up?”

Does anyone have any experiences?
