    He looks great to me! Can see a faint hint of ribs and his lat muscle over them. Great shape for a growing pup.

    He looks perfect! I wouldn't worry to much while he's growing. It is important to keep him lean once he matures. A breed known for heart disease doesn't need to be fat.

    Well I didn’t want him to chunky as a pup either I keep hearing that is bad on growing joints. This true?

    Overweight pups are at increased risk for hip dysphasia and bone/joint problems as adults.

    Yea spaying and neutering is bad. But I don’t plan to neuter at all.

    He looks great for his age, if he were more mature I would say drop a few pounds but for a puppy he will burn that up as he grows.
