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 Nebraska?

While some studies are inconsistent, Nebraska generally ranks very well for pet-friendliness. It’s a great place to own a dog and has some great laws protecting animals. 


We use two primary studies to track a state’s friendliness for pets. One ranks Nebraska in the top ten, and the other in the top 25. 


The first study comes from an animal advocacy group, Pawsafe. They ranked Nebraska 9th compared to all 50 states, according to factors like pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. The state also scored well in its report for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from the safety review site Safewise. They ranked Nebraska as the 23rd most pet-friendly state in the country. Still in the top half, but not quite top ten.


However, if we combine the two studies, Nebraska still ranks at the front of the list!
