Bull Terrier

The Bull Terrier

The Bull Terrier, this dog came out as a fighting dog in its early days, loved for their unmatched loyalty, warm-spirited personality and power. The egg-shaped head and feisty companion is a show stopper at shows and craves for company most of the time, it is one pet every gentleman will love to walk down the lane, in the evenings. Discover more about our Bull Terrier puppies for sale below!

Back into the 18th century sometime around 1835, the Bull Terriers were made into animal sports and the breed is believed to have been crossed with the now-extinct white English terrier to produce the Bull Terrier. 

And later its producers sought to have it gain some added prowess and decided to cross it with another powerful breed the Spanish pointer and that produced the bigger and more impressive size Bull Terrier seen today. In 1885, Bull Terrier got registered for the first time in the American Kennel Club and in 1897 America’s Bull Terrier club was launched.

A very bold, independent, loyal and headstrong breed is the Bull Terrier and this makes a poor choice for first-time owners who may not have the patience to get it trained. They are fun-loving dogs and always excited playing with children, this makes it a good option if you have a home of kids but great care must be given with small children. 

Bull terriers love the company of people and its family members, it hates being left alone for long hours and may react aggressively or get destructive. They may also find it difficult coping with other dogs, animals, and strangers if not exposed to early socialization.

Bull terriers can get along well in an apartment as well as a house with a yard too. if you are keeping up with an apartment, include plans or avenues for recreation because as an active dog, daily exercise is important to keep it vigorous and sound. 

Cold weather is a complete danger for the breed considering its thin coat, so you will have to make extra efforts to keep it warm during cold seasons. But for the hot weather, your Bull Terrier is just a happy dog the whole season.

As expected of a breed like this, Bull Terriers are high-demands on exercise, so if you have an apartment you will need your dog (with the leash) to accompany you for your morning jog or if you have a backyard, you can let it romp within the fenced area, so it doesn’t wander away. 

You can also let it into the garden to chase butterflies and balls, as a maximum of an hour of exercise and mental triggering, every day is enough to keep your pal happy the whole day.

Thankfully, Bull Terriers are thin-coated which makes it demand little grooming and matting hardly occurs but regular brushing with a brush is still necessary as it shed once every year. Brushing will help to keep your Bull Terrier pleasant looking and you will have a smooth coated pal around the house. 

Occasional bathing, brushing of the teeth and trimming of nails are important in having a healthy-looking dog, the ears have to be checked often to avoid wax formation.
