Bull Terrier Characteristics

Originally developed in the 1800s as a fighting dog, the Bull Terrier is now commonly known as a loving family companion and show dog. Despite their size, these dogs have a lot of energy and require frequent exercise to prevent bad behavior. If you can meet his exercise needs, the Bull Terrier may be the right dog for you.

Fast Facts

  • Energy High
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Responsive

Known for its unique egg-shaped head, the Bull Terrier is distinct from any other dog breed. Though they were once known as fighters, we know today that these dogs are full of love and want to please their humans more than anything. Especially playful with children, these dogs have a unique and charming personality that makes them a hit at family gatherings.
 
Standing around 21-22 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 35-75 pounds, the Bull Terrier can be a medium-large dog. Like most terriers, Bull Terriers are territorial and can act out aggressively with other animals, and especially with other dogs. You’ll see this most with the unneutered males. Early socialization will ensure they are well behaved around other dogs.  Positive, supervised visits with other dogs at a young age will be crucial towards the development of your Bull Terrier. Cats and other small animals should be vigilant around the Bull Terrier.
 
The black, white, or blue coat of the Bull Terrier requires very little grooming; just the occasional brushing and wipe-down with a damp cloth will suffice most of the time. Ownership of these dogs is restricted or banned in some cities, so be sure to check with your insurance company if you will remain covered while owning a Bull Terrier.
 

How dog-friendly is Colorado?

Colorado, like the land itself, has a lot of highs and lows when it comes to dog-friendliness. 

Two very different studies on pet safety

Pawsafe surprisingly ranks the state as the 8th least pet-friendly in the country. The study evaluates several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. While this ranking is low, there are few areas where the state excels. Pawsafe ranked Colorado 3rd for animal welfare laws and 4th for available pet services.


Safewise conducted a similar study and came to a much different conclusion. In their analysis, they found Colorado to be the 14th most pet-friendly state. Safewise notes that only 25% of rentals in Colorado are pet-friendly, which may be why Pawsafe ranked Colorado so low.
