Is a Bull Terrier the Right Dog Breed for You?
Originally valued as a pit fighter, the bull terrier has a tenacious personality bred into them. Dominant personalities are common and they will defend property, their owners and themselves. They don’t always get along well with other dogs. They require a lot of exercise and stimulation. They become deeply bonded to their owners and will be loyal to them. They should be socialized with children when young to be trustworthy. They are moderate shedders and have low grooming needs.
