Bull Terrier Breed

The Bull Terrier is sometimes called theWhite Cavalier or the Gladiator. How noble!

The Bull Terrier is a powerful and strongly built dog with well developed muscular structure and round shape. The most distinctive feature of the breed is its odd, egg-shaped head. Another unique feature are the small triangular-shaped and piercing eyes.

Originating in mid 1800’s Victorian England by crossing the old English Terrier and the Bulldog, the Bull Terrier is a pit dog. The English Terrier gave the Bull Terrier his intelligence and dexterity, while the Bulldog gave him his strength and courage.

Later on, interbreeding other breeds such as the Spanish Pointer produced a strong, tenacious and agile dog that ruled the pits. With dog fighting becoming illegal, breeders began producing strains of Bull Terriers that would win competitions for their looks rather than for their powerful bites.

The Bull Terrier’s coat is short, flat and with a fine gloss, but as a result to its hard texture it is rough to the touch. As for colors, there are two varieties - White and Colored. White Bull Terriers should be white, although markings on the head are permissible. Colored Bull Terriers come in variety of colors such as brindle, black-brindle, red, fawn and tricolor.


Bull Terrier Personality

Known to be "larger than life'' and always ready for a good time, Bull Terriers are feisty extroverts. He is a good looking rough character, full of fire and determination. As a contrast to his tough bravado, the Bull Terrier is an extremely sweet-tempered and sweet-natured, affectionate, playful, exuberant, devoted, comical and clownish breed.

Bull Terriers form strong and deep attachment with their human families. They are very protective and will not hesitate to attack other dogs and even humans, if needed. However, if properly socialized, they can learn to get along well with other dogs. Unfortunately smaller pets are always seen as prey.

If neglected and not properly entertained Bull Terriers tend to be especially rambunctious - happily devouring furniture, excavating great caverns in the yard, spinning in dizzy circles and chasing their tails obsessively.

Today because of their comical expression and nature Bull Terriers are popular characters in modern culture. They featured in countless advertising campaigns such as the beer commercial for Budweiser and cartoons like Frankenweenie, Nickelodeon, Toy Story and Babe: Pig in the City

. Food, Height & Weight

As with any other dog breed, Bull Terriers should be fed healthy diets with high-quality protein sources and natural ingredients. Bones can be given to Bull Terriers because they have powerful jaws and are able to chew and swallow them in small bits. On the flip side, because of the same reason, they should never be given rawhide chews.

The ideal height at withers for both females and males is 18-22‘’ (46-56cm). Females should weight 45-55Ibs (20-25kg) and males should weight 55-65Ibs (25-29kg).

The Bully Breeds

Belonging to the "bulldog" and "Bull & Terrier" groups of pure-bred dogs. They are often mis-identified, mis-labbeled, or delibrately called "pit bulls". Many owners of such dogs face prejudice and may be the target of physical and even verbal attacks and campaigns on social media.

Breed Specific Legislation is a way for governments and local authorities to generalize and demonize entire breeds despite the fact that a small percentage of the bully breeds are a danger to society. Often any dangerous behaviour can be traced back to deliberate formation and training by owners.

Below is an example of some of the "bully breeds" and it shows the physical differences in the branches of the genetic tree. Some breeds have been ommitted as they are extremely rare or do not face the same stigma of being labelled as a dangerous dog or mislabbeled as a pitbull.
