I see what you mean! The last photo blew me away at his puppy body. This isn't photo-shopped right? Do you have photos of Sire and Dam or info on pedigree? Sibs? There is even that little rise just behind the nose. Looks awesome though

Yea, I never read any rule that says what has to grow first on a puppies body. It's just that I had one from a BYB that looked "very mature" for his age. His max weight was 52lbs, most of his life 48lbs. Lived to be 14.5 years old. Healthy and happy. His parents were both regular size, but he and a female sib never got over 50 lbs.

when the nose grows first you get that grown up look. I guess you just missed the little cutie pie short baby nose. My pup quickly got her elegant she-pup face while my boy had his furry-bear-boy face for quite awhile.
