Male dogs are usually larger then females from the same litter.
Also your pup may have been the runt of the litter.
Did you worm her regularly from 8 weeks old?
Your dog will have more or less reached her peak height at a year old and will not grow significantly taller.
If you can`t see her ribs then I doubt she is underweight for her breeding.
Did you see the parent dogs?
Pit Bull dog is a "type" and not a specific breed.
Your dog may be a small "type" of this dog.
Pit bull is the common name for a type of dog descended from bulldogs and terriers. The pit bull type is particularly ambiguous as it encompasses a range of pedigree breeds, informal types and appearances that cannot be reliably identified.
Lifespan: American Pit Bull Terrier: 8 – 15 years, American Staffordshire Terrier: 12 – 16 years
Height: American Pit Bull Terrier: 45 – 53 cm, MORE
Mass: American Pit Bull Terrier: 16 – 30 kg, Staffordshire Bull Terrier: 13 – 17 kg
If your PB is 33lbs its nearer the weight of a Staffie or Mix of. 33lbs is almost 15kg.

Stop spamming about your bully breed mutt. There's no one size these mutts are supposed to be. If it's THIN get it to a vet.

If you think she is stunted, then have your veterinarian check out her hormonal levels.

Of course she ISN'T growing; she has pretty much finished at a year of age Puppies are considered an adult (as to growth in HEIGHT) by 12 months. She may put on more muscle over the next 6 or 8 months and will not be fully MENTALLY or PHYSICALLY mature enough to have a litter, until age 2 years. If you WANTED a larger dog you should have BOUGHT from larger PARENTAL stock.

Most dogs have reached their full adult size by the time they are a year old. Some may gain a bit more muscle over the next year or two. Some don't.
If your dog is at what your vet says is a good weight right now, that's what she's going to be.
