The Bull Terrier is a cross between the Bulldog and the Old English Terrier with a bit of Spanish Pointer in his bloodline. This breed originated in 1830 to attack bull in this sport of combat. They were soon replaced in 1850 with the White Cavalier and have since been used for many different things. The Bull Terrier has been used as a guard dog, a ratter, a herder, and a watchdog and does extremely well in all.
The Bull Terrier is a lively breed but can also be lazy and quiet at times. A very muscular and well-built breed, this dog has a very sweet disposition and can be very affectionate. This dog requires an experienced handler as they can become dominant without the right training and socialization. The Bull Terrier is a very polite breed that is naturally obedient, however does need extensive training and requires a great deal of companionship.
Fiery, energetic, and loving, this breed can also be protective of his owner and his territory, giving off somewhat of a fearless presence. This breed makes a good watch and/or guard dog. The Bull Terrier is very hardy and sturdy and can tolerate quite a bit of child's play, however should always be supervised, as Bull Terriers can be snippy if they are overly pestered. With proper socialization and training, this breed can do well with other dogs.
The Bull Terrier does not require much grooming, and an occasional brushing with a rubber brush should be sufficient. Hand plucking may be necessary for dead hairs, but is usually cared for with a brush or comb. This breed is an average shedder, shedding only around twice a year. Removing loose hair should be simple when using a special rubber glove designed for such a task. Ear cleaning is necessary to prevent any difficulties in the future.
The coat of the Bull Terrier should always be short, flat and harsh, even being somewhat coarse to the touch. The hair should always be glossy and should be close lying. This breed should have tight skin, never wrinkly or saggy. Grooming this breed is fairly simple as the coat is very short. However, the Bull Terrier should be protected from the cold.
Being somewhat willful and very independent, the Bull Terrier can be difficult to train. Obedience training should be started at an early age to avoid any issues in the future. Being that this breed is prone to dominance issues, firm and dominant handling is a must to prevent escalation into aggression. Bull Terriers are very eager to please although they can be very stubborn and difficult to train in any aspect.
The Bull Terrier is a very lively breed. A ball of fire, this dog requires quite a bit of exercise to stay healthy and active. At least a medium sized yard would work best as this breed has almost infinite energy. This breed requires long daily walks, twice a day is best, as they can become destructive if not given the proper stimulation and exercise requirements.

How long does the female Bull Terrier stay pregnant?

1 Comment


A dog will be pregnant for 62 days. However, a dog can give birth as early as 55 days and as late as 65 days. However, at roughly day 49 - 52; it is best to have the dog examined by a vet and x-rayed. The vet will then be able to roughly determine when the dog will be giving birth. Also, taking your dogs temperature 3x a day starting at day 50-53 will be able to give you a 24 hour mark before the labor kicks in; as a dogs temperature will lower to below 100 F 24 hours before her labor starts.

Anonymous asked:
Would it be best to buy a single male Bull Terrier or to buy two males from the same litter? Would these get along or cause problems through fighting etc. Also as we have three children from the age of 10 -14 would the environment be socially ok for these animals? Thanks, Dave.

How old should a Bull Terrier puppy be for neutering or spaying?

1 Comment


The best time to spay or neuter a dog is when they are 3/4's full grown to full grown. This gives the dog the best chance at a healthy life as he/she as already gotten all the growth hormones he/she needs for full bone density. The Bull Terrier is considered full grown at about a year and a half to 2 years old. So spaying/neutering your Bully is best to be done anywhere between 1 - 2 years of age.

Anonymous asked:
What are the Bull Terrier's health issues?

1 Comment


The Bull Terrier is a relatively healthy breed of dog, but there are a few health concerns to be aware of. A good breeder will be screening their dogs for health problems before breeding and let you know the results when inquiring about a puppy. Some health problems the Bull Terrier breed has are Hereditary Nephritis (kidney disease), Heart disease, Skin Problems (allergies, and sunburns), OCD, Lens Luxation (when the lens of the eye is displaced), and then deafness. All puppies should be checked for deafness, which occurs in 20.4% of pure white Bull Terriers and 1.3% of colored Bull Terriers.

Anonymous asked:
Is a Bull Terrier aggressive?



Any dog can be aggressive. It's all on how they are raised.There are bad people who raise dogs wrong. Bully breeds always get a bad wrap. But all dogs need love.


All dogs can be aggressive! The Bull Terrier is a strong breed. It takes a strong owner to raise one. Not just physically but mentally. They are the Ferrari's of the dog world, don't treat it like a dodge.


But the answer is yes, if you dont let it socialise as a puppy or you miss treat it it has the potential to tear you to piecees.
