Bull Terrier Puppies For Sale

English Bull Terriers are a very popular breed in the United States. They have been around since the late 19th century and they were originally bred to fight with other dogs. However, nowadays they enjoy being pets and many people prefer them over their larger cousins such as the pitbull or even the German shepherd dog.

English bull terriers are usually quite intelligent and loyal. Their intelligence makes them excellent guard dogs, but it does not mean that they cannot be playful and affectionate too. They do not like to share everything with everyone, so they tend to keep most things private. Some of their favorite activities include: playing fetch, chasing small animals (such as mice), running through fields at night, jumping up on furniture when excited and generally just being themselves!

English bulldogs are a medium sized dog, which means that they will fit into any home. They come in various colors and sizes, from tiny pups weighing less than 20 pounds to large specimens measuring well over 100 pounds. You can expect your new pet to grow up to be friendly and loving towards you, though some may become protective if they sense someone is trying to steal their food or toys.

They are typically not prone to barking excessively and most owners report that they are quiet dogs. Grooming is required, however, as their short hair tends to mat if it gets wet or dirty. Like most other breeds, bull terriers shed quite a bit so be prepared to clean up after them.
