Bullies, bull and terrier
Country of Origin:
The Bull Terrier was established in about 1835 by James Hinks,
probably by mating the bulldog to the now-extinct white English terrier, then by
crossing this mix with a Spanish pointer. It was originally known as a bull and
terrier. It was used to bait bulls and in pit fights. Although it was known as a
fierce dog fighter, it was not supposed to provoke a fight.
The Bull Terrier is a muscular, medium-size dog with a
distinctive egg-shaped head. The nose is black and its dark eyes are small,
triangular shaped, and sunken. The ears are close together, small and naturally
erect. The body is rounded with a deep, broad chest and well boned legs. The
tail is short and tapered. It has a short, smooth coat, which is white with
occasional dark markings on the head or any color with or without white
markings. The preferred color is brindle.
21 to 22 inches
45 to 65 pounds
The bull terrier is friendly, playful and affectionate with
humans. It is a good guard and very lively and busy. It may be aggressive toward
other animals. If not well socialized it can be food and toy possessive and
reactive to provocation.
Socialized bull terriers do fine with children and small
animals, but two males generally will not get along.
The bull terrier does best with an experienced, active family
or individual with time for it. It can adapt to a rural, suburban or city home.
Firm training, inclusion in family activities, one-on-one
exercise, socialization and supervision.
