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.

  • 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.
