Bull Terrier

Ease of Training
Guard Dog


  • He was developed in the 19th century in England by crossing Bulldogs with various Bulldog-Terrier crosses and White English Terriers
  • It's believed Dalmatian and Greyhound may have also be used in his development
  • He was bred for fighting

Personality and Behavior

  • He's affectionate and likes to be fussed over and receive attention
  • He's very sweet and can be quite a clown
  • He's very strong, tough, and muscular
  • He's highly active and loves to play games especially with balls or toys
  • He doesn't bark unless there's a good reason to; so take note when he does
  • His threatening "look" make him an excellent guard dog
  • He's good with children and can become quite protective of them, but they should always treat him with respect
  • He's aggressive with other dogs and must be supervised with them; he may snap at any time and wont tolerate another dog being aggressive with him


  • He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.


  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
