    Got him from a flea market but don't know what kind he is. The guy said he is about 7 or 8 months old.

    How big do you think he will get? He's just a pet so he won't be eaten. The guy said he is 7 or 8 months old but he seems small for that age

    He is a commercial breed so he has the potential to grow to be 700-800 pounds by the time he's five or so. Our guy only lived until two because he ended up having a problem with his hips and he wasn't able to walk.
