The Bull Terrier is probably one of the best known dogs belonging to the Terrier group. Early in the 1800s, a dog called the Bull and Terrier was produced from a cross between the Bulldog and Old English Terrier. The breed soon became known for its never-say-die attitude. The coat is pure white or coloured with any one colour predominating (brindle preferred).
Temperament: The Bull Terrier is a jaunty, likeable family dog with a clownish demeanour and keen sense of humour. Bullies do have a significant stubborn terrier streak. This can be a challenge during training, but with a firm, persistent hand, he can be controlled. They become devoted family members and thrive on affection and attention.
Lifestyle: Bull Terriers are dedicated family companions, but need to be kept under firm control when other dogs are near. With humans, including children, he is gentle and full of fun.
General care: His short, flat coat is easy to maintain. A weekly brushing is adequate.
Exercise: Exercise needs are moderate. Early puppy socialisation and ongoing obedience training are recommended. He enjoys plenty of free exercise time too. A breed of remarkable strength and endurance.
