Typical Coloring

Bull Terriers are commonly white, black and tan, brindle, red, fawn and red smut.





Bull Terriers are as mischievous, sweet and loving as a toddler. Their enthusiasm and friendliness is unrivaled among the terrier and mastiff families. They have a great sense of humor, and they like to make their owners laugh. Also typical of a toddler, they are very attached to their masters and can become difficult if left without them.




Activity Level

Bull Terriers have lots of energy to burn, and so it’s important to give them daily physical and mental activity. They enjoy going for runs, but they should be kept indoors as much as possible in very hot or very cold weather. If they do not get adequate mental stimulation, they can get into trouble.
