The Bull Terrier or English Bull Terrier is a breed of dog in the terrier family.

Comment "i love this dog very much :)"

Have your say

The Bull Terrier's most special feature is its head, characterized as 'egg shaped' when seen from the front, almost flat at the top, with a Roman muzzle sloping evenly down to the end of the nose with no stop. The singular triangular eyes are small, dark, and closely set. ///

Bull Terriers are known as friendly and outgoing dogs, even having a "clownish" attitude about them. Their physical strength is matched by their intelligence, and both body and mind need to be kept active. They can be obstinate or stubborn and are not ideal dogs for the first-time owner. As a breed they are generally placid and will not normally make the first move. They are very affectionate dogs that love human company. Bull Terriers are particularly good with children and can stand a great deal of abuse due to their high pain threshold. They are protective of children in their charge. Younger dogs may regard children as playmates and because of their strength would only cause inadvertent injury.

The American Temperament Test Society, Inc. (ATTS), a not-for-profit organization that promotes uniform temperament testing for dog breeds, gives the Bull Terrier a pass rate of 91.5%. The average for all breeds is 81.5%.

Health

All puppies should be checked for deafness, as this sometimes occurs (most commonly in pure white dogs) and is difficult to notice, especially in a relatively young puppy. Many Bull Terriers have a tendency to develop skin allergies. I  Insect bites, such as fleas, and sometimes mosquitoes and mites, can produce a generalized allergic response of hives, rash, and itching. This condition can be stopped by keeping the dog free of contact from these insects, but this is definitely a consideration in climates or circumstances where exposure to these insects is inevitable. Their lifespan is somewhere between 10 and 14 years, although they can live longer - the oldest female Bull Terrier on record being an Australian house pet dubbed "Puppa Trout" who remained sprightly into her 17th year.

"Ever wondered how smart your dog really is? Is that selective stupidity, or canine cunning? Run your dog through these hilarious - and entirely harmless - tests, and time their response with the stopwatch! "

The Bull Terrier's coat is easy to maintain, but grooming can keep it in near-perfect condition. Adding oils to their meals can also vastly improve the quality of their coat. I  The Bull Terrier requires a fair amount of exercise, but overworking the dog at a young age will cause strained muscles. Older dogs do require exercise, but in small doses, whereas younger ones will be happy to play for hours on end. The breed is renowned for being extremely greedy; be sure to maintain a good balance of exercise and food, or the dog can become overweight. Also, be sure to check ears, eyes, nose and mouth every day for signs of infection.

Common Ailments: Deafness, Umbilical Hernia and Acne. I  Bull Terriers can also suffer from Obsessive compulsive behaviour, such as tail chasing, self mutilation, and obsessive licking. I

History

The now extinct breeds Old English Bulldog and Old English Terrier were crossed to form a new breed of dog called the Bull and Terrier. Around 1860 , the Bull and Terrier breed split into two branches, the pure white Bull Terrier and the coloured forms.

Pedigrees of Bull Terriers date from the period during which the English Stud books were first written (circa 1874-6). Although the breed was developed from fighting dogs, the Bull Terrier was intended to be a show dog and companion.

Although the name causes confusion, Bull Terriers are not directly related to American Pit Bull Terriers. Both breeds do, however, descend from the same ancestors.

The Bull Terrier was recognized by the United Kennel Club in 1948.

Bull Terrier facts

  • It is said that the Afrikaans name for the Bull Terrier is Varkhond (Pig-dog), because of the pig-like appearance of the head and eyes. However, this name is more likely to have arisen as a result of the use in the past of cross-bred bull terriers during bush-pig and warthog hunting in South Africa, particularly in the Eastern Cape.
  • There is also a miniature version of this breed; this distinct breed is officially known as the Bull Terrier (Miniature).
  • Bull Terriers are prominently featured in Jonathan Carroll's 1980 novel The Land of Laughs.
  • Bull Terriers appear in several movies, including: Oliver!, The Incredible Journey, Patton, Babe: Pig in the City, Next Friday, Frankenweenie, A Dog's Life, The Last Boy Scout and Derailed, "Next Friday", "Scotland, PA"
  • Bull Terriers have also featured in television shows such as the 1970s television show Baa Baa Black Sheep, in the opening credits of the British television show Barking Mad, and in the short lived Fox series Keen Eddie.

Picture of Betty Boops sent in by a Bull Terrier Fan - Thanks

Betty Boops the Bull Terrier
Hello and pleased to meet you mutual bully fans - I have attached a picture of my purebred English Bull - Betty Boops.  She was once a breeding bitch on a puppy farm in Wales and could not even walk when I first got her via rescue.  Now she is a complete joy to take out, running, jumping and swimming. She has just enjoyed her first Christmas in a home.  I also have two English bull terrier cross staffies who make very nice dogs as well.  I am a rescuer of pedigree cats down in the west of Cornwall (Posh Puss Rescue) but my bullies get on really well with the cats,  I am still very much looking for a white bully girl with a black eye patch who is cat friendly to add to my bully clan!
