      About Bull Terriers

      The Bull Terrier is sweet, playful and amusing. Bred originally in England for dogfighting, these dogs were unsuccessful fighters and were used as "ratters" instead. Bull Terriers are easily identified by their egg-shaped heads and triangular eyes, and are very charming, friendly companions. Bull Terriers love to exercise and do well with children and families.

      Did You Know?

      The Bull Terrier rose to popularity after a Budweiser commercial of the late 1980's featured an entertaining Bull Terrier named Spuds Mackenzie.

      Origin

      Bull-and-terrier"" dogs such as this breed were crosses between Bulldogs and various terriers for their courage and companionship.
