    Can you get a picture from the top looking down? It's hard to tell much from that angle.

    Not an expert. I think he looks fine. I don’t like dogs that carry unnecessary weight. Take a toll on them. All that being said you may want to consider a different type of food. Maybe a grain free diet may help him. Good luck with him.

    Better to have our large / giant breed dogs on the lean side. Looks good to me.
    Ever hear of the saying 'As fit as a butchers dog'

    Handsome guy. I love his name. He looks good to me. Search for body condition charts. It I think you'll find he's right where he should be. Sadhbhsdad is right. Leaner is better.

    Looks great to me and not underweight. Also wouldn‘t worry too much about the exact number of cups per day, it can and will vary. He‘s probably going to eat less anyway as he gets older. His coat looks really good by the way.
