The Bull Terrier is a playful dog with a wonderful disposition and seems to maintain a puppy-like disposition as an adult. Originally a sporting dog, this breed has a muscular build and is very strong.
The color tones of the coat of the Bull Terrier can be various, but white is the predominant color. The Bull Terrier stands between 21 to 22 inches at the shoulder and weighs between 50 and 70 pounds.
Bull Terriers, due to their loving nature, are best when around family members. The Bull Terrier is very close to his family and always wants to be near them. Therefore, if you travel often, the Bull Terrier may not be the best choice. However, if most of your time is spent at home, you will find an affectionate companion with the Bull Terrier.
If you have children in the home, a Bull Terrier is an excellent choice. This dog gets along well with children and loves to play. However, you should be certain to have your Bull Terrier attend some dog training sessions to ensure that your playful pup knows when it is time to behave and when it is okay to play.
Due to the active nature of the Bull Terrier, daily activity and walks are essential. Your Bull Terrier will be much happier when given the proper amount of exercise and will be better behaved in the home if allowed to get the energy out when in an outdoor setting.
As for grooming issues, the Bull Terrier needs very little time in the way of grooming. An occasional brushing and bath is all that this dog breed needs to have a healthy coat and look good overall.
