Bull Terrier – Perfect Pet or Killer?

6999

Cute Bull TerrierThese dogs look a little similar to pigs, have a muscular build, they like games with a ball and all sorts of outdoor activities, they need very little grooming and bark seldom. At the same time these fun-loving dogs often have a diabolical expression, can become uncontrollable and are forbidden in many European countries as a fighting dog. I am speaking about the Bull Terrier.

The Bull Terrier is the result of a cross between the Bulldog and Terriers. This British invention has perfect hunting skills of the Terrier and the fighting spirit of the Bulldog. At the same time it is a sensitive dog which is deeply attached to the owner. This dog requires a firm training, otherwise it can become very aggressive. Maybe this is why the law of Spain, Italy, Sweden and other countries forbids the import, breeding and owning of Bull and Terrier breeds.

The owners of these dogs say, the Bull Terriers are very friendly, thriving on affection and are always ready for a frolic. The Bull Terrier is also said to be a sociable dog, which does not hesitate to make the first step towards people, even strangers and is very affectionate with children. The Bull Terrier, what a nice pet! They also look very cute. Just look at the pictures below. One can wonder, why they are prohibited in so many countries.

  1. Hello, I own 2 English bull terriers. I am 28 and have owned dogs my entire life. I did research bull terriers and knew what I was getting myself into. I got my female at 5 weeks old and she has always been extremely intense with everything she does. Very loving to people and to children. She is 2 years old now and sadly has become extremely aggressive. She will kill any critter she can catch, Will start dog fights and bite other dogs immediately going for the neck or ears. I brought this dog up going for daily walks, dog parks, petsmart trips, and playing with other well behaved dogs. Not once has she ever met a aggressive dog. My other one is a male I got him at 10 weeks he is a little over a year. He loves everything and everyone including my mother’s cat. He is so gentle and laid back. I was a firm believer that the owner made the dog aggressive but from this experience. I think it has a lot more to do with genes and what is breed into them and out of them. Never once have I trained her to be mean or aggressive. Now I don’t know where to turn. Getting rid of her is not an option but having such a dangerous dog can be scary. I honestly believe I have two of the extreme sides of the bull terriers and they are nothing alike.

  2. I’m 64 years old and have had dogs all my life including pit bulls. I have also owned two bull terriers (both females) and found them to be the best breed I’ve ever had. I have 5 grown children and 10 grandchildren and none of my kids or grandkids have ever been growled at by any of my dogs much less bitten. Bull terriers aren’t for everyone. They can bull-headed and stubborn, but NEVER mean. You have to have a strong hand with them and let them know who is alpha. Some idiots get the pit bull mixed up with the bull terrier. Two completely different dogs. While neither of my bull terrier bitches picked fights, neither of them would back down from one either. And if push comes to shove, they can give a good account of themselves in a tussle. My wife and I are picking up our third bull terrier bitch this weekend from a rescue organization. She’s 2 years old and I’m so looking forward to having her. They’re wonderful and I dare anyone to say otherwise. The bull terrier-world’s best breed. Atheletic, highly intelligent, comical (hucklebutt is hilarious), and extremely affectionate. My vet told me that my last bull terrier was the smartest dog he’d ever treated. That’s enough for me!

  3. Having read the comment from “I hate pits”
    January 4, 2008 at 7:33 pm. I very rarely comment on anything on sites, however in this case I’ll make an exception. I thinm *I hate pits” your’ll find that it is you that is the giant douche-bag and an ass master!!! I’ve owned English Bull Terriers for over 27 yrs and have had 5 in all. Each one has had it’s own unique personality, none of them has ever bitten a child, adult or another dog. In the right hands these dogs make great pets, it’s all down to the owner(s) being responsible. It’s the bad owners that are the problem not the dogs retard!!!
    Also just a note re something on the website EBTS are not banned in Spain and there are quite a few breeders out there, Also my father lives in Spain and has a EBT out there.

  4. FIRST OF ALL IF YOU’VE HAD A NICE EBT YOU STILL CAN’T SPEAK FOR ALL OTHERS AND VICE VERSA IF YOU’VE SEEN AN AGGRESSIVE ONE. SECOND, NO MATTER HOW WELL YOU TRAIN AN ANIMAL YOU CANNOT TRUST THEM 100%!! THIRD, THE REASON EBTS ARE KNOWN AS DANGEROUS IS BECAUSE THEY ARE STRONG AND HAVE THE PHYSICAL ABILITY TO ATTACK MAIME AND KILL ANOTHER ANIMAL WITH LESS EFFORT THAN SAY A CHIHUAHUA. FOURTH, STOP FUCKING COMPARING DOGS TO HUMANS AS HOW DANGEROUS THEY CAN BE. A HUMAN BROUGHT UP IN A NICE LOVING FAMILY CAN STILL END UP BEING SERIAL KILLERS. 

    IT IS NUTURE VS NURTURE. IT’S NOT ALL ENVIRONMENTAL AND/OR GENETICS. ACCEPT IT AND DEAL WITH IT YOU DUMB FUCKS SAYING IT IS ALL THE OWNER’S FAULT FOR NOT TRAINING THE DOG RIGHT OR BEING A BAD BREEDER  EVER HEAR OF GENETIC MUTATIONS? YOU CAN’T FUCKING CONTROL HOW THEIR TEMPERAMENT WILL BE DESPITE YOUR EFFORTS TO CONTROL THE SITUATION.

    ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THESE DOGS ARE “DANGEROUS” BECAUSE OF THEIR GREATER POTENTIAL TO HURT DUE TO THEIR PHYSICAL ABILITY. GOSH DAMN YOU ARE ALL ARGUING FOR NO REASON. LOOK AT THE FUCKING LARGER PICTURE AND NOT YOUR TINY ASS SAMPLE SIZE!!!

    AGREED?? 

  5. Could anybody please shut down this forum?! I’ve been reading a lot of nonsense about this breed!!! An EBT is a “rabbit” compared to a German Shepherd!!! To any one reading these comments please don’t take them seriously: buy some books written by professionals, if you really want to know the truth about this lovely and majestic breed .Shut down the forum… help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. People who comment in an ugly, offensive way regarding these dogs, is showing their ignorance! If they took the time to get to understand this particular breed, they would realise that its an intelligent, loyal, faithful, loving dog – just as any other – and that this breed is highly misdiagnosed…its because of disgusting, unintelligent, careless,  human beings that bring them up the wrong way, and use them as status symbols and to fight – that this breed has a bad name! Dont believe everything you read abt them regarding 
    they are killers etc etc’…its assholes who taught them to fight…they love people…
    I have had bull terriers all my life, and so have numerous friends of mine – and NONE have turned out the way people like to describe them…they are fantastic dogs…

  7. English bull terrier is not banned in any country but Føroyar islands. Many countries in europe have reconsidered witch breeds they should allow but not a single one has banned the Bull terrier, there we are talking about specialists that have to take every breed to consideration. In the nordic countries the german shepherd is the dog who bites most people, dogs and other animals but at the same time he is the most popular. I think who ever started this forum has a personal problem with bull terriers witch he cant overcome..
    I have had a bull terrier for 3 years and met few of them, they are different from each other in temperament and behavior but none of them have shown any aggression towards me or my bullterrier like many other “regular dogs” have done. I would highly recommend the owner of this forum to show us some researches that can prove his case because there is a big danish research on the internet that shows that there were no records of bullterrier bites in the nordic countries for the period of the research.

  8. hi all, i’ve got a male bully 2 months old, and a daughter2 years old, do i need to neuter my bully?
