History:

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.
