    Default Head Growth

    Asking for a buddy. He has a BLF that is 1.5 years old. Has a great build but her head is small. What are the chances that the dogs head will continue grow at this age?

    Is her head big enough to hold a duck? Or is he wanting to enter the show ring? The best looking dog at the end of the day is the one with the ribbon.

    The small head just makes it easy for them to get through the breaks in cattails...

    Unless it causes medical problems, don't worry about it...

    ....some dogs don't have their 'adult' sized skull till they are 3-4...just depends on the dog....

    I knew I'd get some interesting comments. That's what I get for trying to help a friend. I could care less about the looks of a dog if they are obedient. Looks are just a bonus.
