The Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with a uniquely egg-shaped head. They are
loving, enthusiastic and cheerful companions. The Bull Terrier weighs 50 to 65
pounds, has a life span of 11 to 13 years and is 18 to 24 inches in height. They
come in several colors including pure white, white with colored patches on the head,
brindle, black, red and tri-color.
This energetic breed needs an active owner who enjoys taking long walks and trips to the
dog park. The Bull Terrier needs plenty of exercise, however, they are not always willing
participants! If you are not careful, your Bull Terrier could quickly turn in to a couch potato!
Daily walks are important in order to keep your Terrier trim and fit.
The Bull Terrier does NOT like to be left alone for long periods of time. This breed does best with an owner
who works from home or on a part-time basis. As far as other dogs are concerned, the Bull Terrier does well
when socialized EARLY. This breed has a strong prey instinct so it is VERY important to plan ahead when
introducing the Bull Terrier to another animal. Males can be extremely dominant with other males and though
they may not start a fight, they almost never back down if challenged.
The Bull Terrier does best with an experienced dog owner who is willing to take the time
to train and socialize. This breed is not easily trained and they are certainly not naturals
when it comes to obedience. A firm yet patient owner who is willing to praise and use
positive reinforcement will achieve results. Remember, patience is key! This breed does
well with children and has a fun loving personality. They love being a member of the
family! Though he does well with children, caution should be used with very young children
as he does not like to be teased and can be possessive with food!
