about the breed

about the breed

Bull terriers are directly related to bull-and-terriers. As their name suggests, they were a cross between bull dogs and various terriers. Breeders thought that the tenacious spirit and agility of the terrier mixed with the brute force of a bulldog would create the ultimate fighting pit dog. The breed was known as a “canine gladiator.” Luckily, dog fighting and other blood sports were outlawed thanks to the Humane Act of 1835. Bull terriers were given other tasks, such as ratting and being companions. Theyare known for their long egg-shaped faces that slope in the front into a Roman nose. Their eyes are also unusual: the bull-terrier is the only registered breed to have triangle shaped eyes.
