As unique as it looks, this breed also has a unique personality!
From the name itself — Bull Terrier, it is directly related to bulls-and-terriers. As their name suggests, they were a cross between bulldogs and various terriers. Breeders thought that the tenacious spirit and agility of the terrier mixed with the brute force of a bulldog would create the ultimate fighting pit dog as this breed was bred to fight.
The Bull Terrier is also known for their long egg-shaped faces that slope in the front into a Roman nose. They are the only registered breed to have triangle-shaped eyes. Bullies might seem a little intimidating with their muscular appearance, but they’re actually very sweet, gentle dogs. Known for their goofy and fun personalities, bull terriers are perfect for active families. This breed loves to play and get into trouble!
They’re fun-loving and courageous but they also have a bit of a stubborn streak, so socializing them and training them early is a MUST. The Bull Terrier loves games with a ball or other toys and all sorts of outdoor activities. Their coat is short and glossy and requires very little grooming.
They’re not the best choice for first-time dog owners as training them is a bit challenging because of their stubborn streak. You gotta be careful when spoiling them as they are very smart and dominant. Consistency is essential when training them even when they are still puppies. They’re also known for being headstrong and for being such a powerful dog with a lot of terrier in them that is why they need to be trained right from their young age so that they would know their place in the pack.
They are not the best choice of dog for people who spend a lot of time out of the house as they do not like to be left alone for any period of time. Bear in mind that there are a lot of terrier bred into them, so care must be taken whenever they’re around cats, small animals, and pets. If they grew up with a small pal like the family cat, then they should do well considering that they must be socialized and trained appropriately.
