Dog Breed Information
The Bull Terrier
Country of Origin: England
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!
