Bull Terrier dogs are a very
well-recognized breed due in part to their popularity in advertising, television and movies. But, they
also have some unique features about their appearance which sets them apart from other breeds.
This breed has a good disposition and an affectionate nature. He has a friendly personality and loves companionship.
The BT is very loyal, intelligent and eager to please. Many owners remark on his
playfulness and sense of humor.
Bull Terrier dogs are also without a doubt, a strong and fearless breed. Although they have natural obedient traits, they can be stubborn and do need early socialization plus careful training to prevent him from becoming dominant.
Taking your dog to professional training classes is well advised for new owners.
Height: 21-22 inches
Weight: 52-62 lbs.
Color variations: White, Brindle, Black, Red, Fawn or Tri-color
Bull Terrier dogs have a smooth and flat coat that is easily maintained with a weekly brushing using a rubber brush or a chamois.
Bathing is only needed occasionally and you will be the best judge of when it is necessary!
White-coated dogs may need more frequent bathing. Of course there are more areas in need of routine maintenance as with any dog. See our grooming essentials page for more tips.
Bull Terriers are quite active dogs that need regular and substantial exercise.
Insufficient exercise for any dog makes them more prone to develop undesirable behavior which would be of special concern in a dog as powerful as the Bull Terrier.
The Bull Terrier is not fussy about living space so you don't need a massive amount of room for the BT.
An apartment or house with small yard will suffice providing exercise needs can be met.
Selecting Bull Terrier dogs is best done with the help of a professional breeder, as size and temperament can vary greatly.
This breed has a reputation for getting along well with children
and enjoys their games, but as with any dog, play should be supervised.
Seniors or more sedentary households will appreciate this loyal and enjoyable companion, providing someone can provide the regular exercise they must have.
Again, selection of a dog should be done with the help of a professional for the same reasons stated above regarding temperament variability.
