Breed Information

Official artwork of the Bull Terrier

The Bull Terrier's original purpose was to fight, but it excelled at many other things, so it was "recreated," resulting in a sleeker dog.

The Bull Terrier's head is egg-shaped due to the fact that the top of its snout is arched - called a "Roman nose" or "Roman muzzle." Another distinguishing feature of the Bull Terrier is its triangular eyes - a feature that no other registered breed has.

Though seen as intimidating by some, the Bull Terrier is very playful, extremely intelligent, and highly recommended by experienced owners. Its friendly demeanor and unique appearance have earned it widespread recognition as the iconic canine mascot of the Target corporation, Bullseye.
