Description:
The Bull Terrier is a loyal, affectionate, loving, and humerous dog. It is strong-willed and, therefore, is not the ideal choice of dog for a first-time dog owner. The ideal owners would be a family that loves horseplay, racing, and games like frisbee. The Bull Terrier has the potential to become a first-class companion dog, but in the wrong hands it can turn out to be a horrid disaster.

History/Origin:
At one time a ferocious fighter, the Bull Terrier was bred aoround 1830 by crossing the English Bulldog with the now extinct White English Terrier. The aim was to get a lighter, more agile fighting dog. They were successful, but by now the breed has become a polite and obedient dog, with an irresistible sense of humor.

Height: 20 - 22 inches

Weight: 52 - 62 lbs.

Colors:
Solid white, fawn, brindle, black, red

Coat:
Short and dense

Temperament:
Courageous; good with children when socialized; compatibility with other pets is questionable

Care and Exercise:
Brush coat with a firm bristle brush and bathe only when necessary. Rubbing of the coat will keep it shiny and clean. Needs plenty of exercise, keep on a leash when in public. Puppies need early socialization to prevent them from becoming dominant.

Hereditary zinc deficiency. Some puppies are born deaf.
