Bull Terrier Puppies
Description: The Bull Terrier tends to be friendly and have a good temperament, known for its ability to distinguish when and when it should not fight. Known for their sense of humor, they are an outgoing dog with a dominant nature who needs firm handling by their owner. Bull Terriers are tenacious fighters. They are generally not as nippy as other terriers, but when they do bite they don't like to let go. They are sometimes aggressive towards other dogs, and should be socialized early on. Although males generally do not get along with other males, the breed is usually good with other pets as long as they are socialized and introduced properly. Bull Terriers are short and well muscled, resembling both the physical characteristics of a Bulldog and the personality of a Terrier. They can be feisty in the fighting ring, but have been known to avoid a fight when out on the street. Bull Terriers are also known for their affection and playfulness. Puppies love to play and will be entertained with children non-stop. Adult Bullies are also very good with children and have been known to be completely devoted and faithful. Fierce in appearance and history, this breed's reputation does not give credit to the loving heart behind the brawn.

Terriers are fearless, determined, bold, but recognize when not to fight. One

children, and puppies are a useful playmate. This breed is tough, loyal and

have an independent mind. They are generally friendly and affectionate with
people, although males do not usually get along with other males. They can guard,

Care and Training:
A Bull Terrier's coat should be brushed with a firm bristle brush. They should
be brushed once a week, and bathed only when necessary. Rubbing of their coat
will keep it shiny and clean. Bull Terriers need plenty of exercise, as well
as mental stimulation. They should be walked and given a mental work out as
well. They should also be kept on a leash when in public. Puppies need early
socialization to prevent them from becoming dominant or possessive.
Activity: High. This is
a high energy breed who can play for a long time.
