Bull Terrier

Bull Terriers are dedicated and courageous dogs that are nothing less than the gladiators of the dog world.

About the Bull Terrier

Even-tempered and amenable to discipline, Bull Terriers are especially good with people and settle well into the role of family companion.

Strongly built, well-balanced and active, Bull Terriers have a lively, determined and intelligent expression. In action, Bull Terriers look well-knit, moving freely and easily with regular strides and a characteristic nimbleness.
