The gladiator of the canine race, the Bull Terrier is renowned for his great strength, agility and courage. He originated in England, where he was selectively bred for his prowess in the dogfight pits. Powerfully built, muscular, symmetrical and active, with a keen determined and intelligent expression, the Bull Terrier is indeed an impressive sight.

He is still inherently aggressive towards other dogs and therefore is usually best suited to being the only dog in the household. He is never the less an exceedingly friendly dog, with a sweet disposition and thrives on affection. With people, he is the kindest of dogs and is famous for his soft, benevolent attitude.


Being such a powerful dog, the Bull Terrier requires firm training, although he is extremely stubborn and may not immediately respond to his owner's commands.

He also needs a good deal of exercise which should always be onlead in public areas due to his tendency to fight with other dogs. Having a strong constitution, he can take the rough with the smooth in life. He is very resilient, for example, standing extremes of heat very well.


Height: approx 43 to 53 cm

Weight from 20 to 30 kg.
