Bull Terriers will capture your heart, change your life, and leave you wondering how you ever managed without them.
Bull Terriers are known for a lot of things, but the personality trait that stands out the most is their sense of humor. Bull Terriers are a passion. Most owners are truly thankful to them for all the joy they bring into their lives in their daily antics and their wonderful friendship.
Bull Terriers arose from a family called “bull and terrier” dogs during the 19th century. Bull terriers were bred for companionship and the sport of conformation, not for fighting. It is true that during the creation of this breed, the sport of dog fighting was prevalent, but the creator of this breed created bull terriers for the purpose of selling a dog to the general public that was beautiful to the eye. For the past 136 years, this breed sole purpose is that of companionship.
The modern bull terrier is believed to be created with the now extinct English White Terrier, the Bulldog, the Dalmatian, several terrier crosses, and some believe the Spanish Pointer, Greyhound, and Foxhound. There is even some evidence to suggest that the Borzoi and Collie were used to help elongate the head.
