pit bull snoring?

My 4 month old puppy snores liek you wouldn’t believe. I was told this was a common thing because they don’t really have long faces, or something like that. [I think it was made up information, lmao.]

Anyone have any ideas as to why this happens? The vet tech in our family sees him frequently and says he’s fine, nose and stuff is open. Just wondering if there’s maybe something wrong with him or if it’s a common thing.

Is there anything to do to stop it? Nothing like waking up to a snoring pitty at 4am every morning.
He’s no where near obese. He’s 25 lbs at 4 months, which sounds really heavy, but this pup stands at about my knees. He’s a pretty big puppy, however not overweight.

    im sure hes ok if the vet said he was, but maybe you should try a different vet. my labrador had a leg problem and he was clearly in pain but our vet said he was fine then about 6 months later he had a surgery and he was clearly not ok but he is now. but try a different vet then. my dog snores too ^^

    Nothings wrong with it, its just a natural thing….My pitbull was and still is the same way, he also farts in his sleep pretty disgusting…lol :)

    He likely has a deviated septum. Same with some humans. He might outgrow it,unless he becomes obese.Wait til he’s about a year or so old.

    It is a natural thing just like in humans, and some do and some don’t snore. I have a female cocker-a-poo that snores, and 5 other dogs that don’t. Breath Rite????

    First of all congrats on owning the BEST dog you will ever have. I have own 3 bulldogs in my life and have not recouped from the loss of my last. All of my bulldogs snored, it’s just something they do. also,as mention before they also suffer from extremely bad gas, you could feed them the most expensive dog food and they are still going to fart! Also you will find that a bulldog must touch you, watch and see, they could have the whole room to lay down at but they are gonna end up laying if not on your foot, but anywhere they will be able to touch you. Very smart breed, very LOYAL breed very protective breed.
