Bull Terriers are thick-set and muscular with a short, dense coat.
Acceptable colours are white, any colour other than white, or any colour with white markings.The Bull Terrier's most distinctive
feature is its head, described as 'egg shaped' when viewed from the front, almost flat at the top, with a Roman muzzle sloping
evenly down to the end of the nose with no stop. The unique triangular eyes are small, dark, and closely set. It walks
with a jaunty gait, and is popularly known as the 'gladiator of the canine race'. Bull Terriers are known as friendly and
outgoing dogs, even having a "clownish" attitude about them. Their physical strength is matched by their intelligence, and
both body and mind need to be kept active. They can be fun and playful. As a breed they are generally placid and will not
normally make the first move. They are very affectionate dogs that love human company. Bull Terriers are particularly good
with children, and usually have a high pain threshold, which reduces the risk of injury from a defensive bite. Younger dogs,
however, may regard children as playmates and because of their strength could cause inadvertent injury. They are protective
of children in their charge. Bull Terriers make formidable guard dogs while their owners are away.
