In general, I think bull terriers are an exceptionally good breed; they are smart, loyal and friendly; however, it is always a good idea to consider all aspects of a breed when considering owning a dog. Some dogs are good options for small spaces, while others are definitely not. Some dogs are very docile and gentle, while others are simply full of energy and the need to be active. All of these things and more should be taken into account when thinking about getting a dog. Here are some pros and cons of a fairly popular breed, the English Bull Terrier.
On the positive side, bull terrier puppies are loyal and friendly to people. That makes them a good option for a more active and public lifestyle. Puppies also tend to be extremely good with children, making them a good choice for families with young children. These little dogs are also very smart. This intelligence, along with their love of people, makes them very easy to train, making them a good choice for someone new to dog ownership. Other characteristics that I consider very positive are that they are short-haired and do not shed much, which makes them an easy dog to groom and care for. And, let’s face it, not everyone who wants a dog has time to brush it three or four times a day as required for longer-haired dogs.
On the other hand, puppies of this breed have some potential challenges. These are not things that make it a “bad breed”, I don’t think any animal is bad. These are just things to keep in mind and to prepare for if you choose a bull terrier for sale for your next dog.
These puppies do not tolerate isolation very well. Staying alone too long can lead them to destroy things by chewing. They’re also too short-haired to tolerate cold weather too much, so if you live in a cold climate with a bull terrier, you probably want to keep doggy sweaters on hand. Probably the biggest concern with this breed is the fact that they can be hunters, which means that they can accidentally hunt down and injure smaller creatures that look like prey to them. They can also be runners, which means they can chase something that catches their scent, and they can show affection by nibbling on your hands. Don’t worry though, it’s very easy to teach them good manners and proper behavior. Also, all dog breeds in the world have pros and cons, bull terriers are no exception.
