My boxer/bulldog just turned 1yr old and wont eat anything but purina puppy chow , I have tried her on a lot of different adult dog food and she wont touch it. How long can she continue to eat the puppy chow without it hurting her?

Puppy chow is higher in calories and has a different nutrient balance, but I wouldn't think it would actually hurt your dog. You would want to exercise them more to avoid too much weight gain. Also, it may be helpful to compare the label of the puppy chow your dog likes with the label of the adult dog food, so you can see the differences.
