Bull Terrier Puppies

If you’ve been looking at Bull Terrier puppies for your forever friend, you’re making a great choice. However, as with any dog, you should still do your research before you commit.

Here’s everything you need to know!

Where To Get Bull Terrier Puppies

It’s usually almost impossible to find a purebred dog in a shelter, and hard through a rescue too. However, Bull Terriers have extreme misconceptions about their breed which often means they do end up in shelters! You can call around and ask to be put on a waitlist if you want to adopt one, and see if anyone has one. Your chances will be even greater if you’ll settle for an older dog or Bull Terrier mix.

Specific rescues are a good call too, though they often have strict requirements about your lifestyle and require a home visit.

Your other option is to go through a breeder.

While purchasing from a breeder is fine as long as they’re taking care of their dogs, you’ll want to really do your research and make sure they’re ethical. Backyard breeders will breed puppies that have health issues and temperament problems because they didn’t thoroughly vet the parents and didn’t take the time to socialize the puppies.

In general, if your breeder won’t let you meet the parents of the dog, won’t answer questions or seems evasive on the phone, doesn’t want you to see where your puppy was raised, or sells you the puppy before it’s eight weeks old, it’s a red flag. They should also have shot records and papers from a legitimate registry.

The Cost

From a breeder, the price of Bull Terrier puppies can be anywhere between $500 and $3500. If you adopt, the price will be much lower and likely include microchipping, neutering, and shots. Baertestinguk…

Appearance

The Bull Terrier is a very distinctive dog that most people recognize. They are fairly small but muscular and have an egg-shaped head that is what people usually associate with them. They come in a variety of different colors, from white to brindle, and have pricked ears that are fairly far back on their head.

Temperament

The breed has been a target of discrimination in the dog for a world for a long time. They’re perceived as being aggressive and unsuitable to be owned by families that are inexperienced or have kids.

The only truth to this is that they can be stubborn and, for that reason, they might not be suited to an inexperienced owner. Their owner needs a firm but gentle touch that can open up communication with the dog and persuade them to listen. Despite their stubborn nature, they’re still very intelligent, so as long as you’re willing to work with them, they’ll be a great companion.

They’re good with people but to reach their full potential, you should socialize them extensively at an early age. Have them meet lots of different strangers and make every interaction a good one. They get along well with other dogs, though smaller animals can be a risk. Make slow and careful introductions, and never leave them alone unsupervised. Jeammorefrench…

Bull Terrier Puppies – Veterinary Needs

Your Bull Terrier will need a series of shots that begins when they’re eight weeks old, though your breeder may start them early if you choose to go that route. These protect them against parvovirus, distemper, etc., which can be picked up from other unvaccinated dogs and can be fatal. They will also need a rabies shot when they’re sixteen to eighteen weeks old. It’s illegal for them not to have a rabies shot.

Afterward, they will need a veterinary check-up once a year to keep an eye on health issues. They will also need to be kept on preventative flea and worm medication.

Bull Terriers are mostly healthy, but they are prone to skin allergies. White Bull Terriers can also end up being deaf, so be careful if taking on one of these and know what you’re getting into. Victor_Manuel…

Diet

It’s a heated debate in the dog world, with many strong opinions from owners: which diet is best?

If you do choose to feed kibble, it can be healthy if you choose the right one, and it’s convenient for most owners and less expensive than raw! However, you should avoid grain-free food, as this has been linked to heart disease and other issues. Make sure you read the ingredients and, if in any doubt, ask your vet for food recommendations.

If feeding raw, there are a few things to remember. Dogs need more than just meat because they’re omnivores, which is a mistake many people make. Many subscription services can make these up for you.

Grooming

You should clean their ears and teeth often to prevent infections. Owners should also clip their nails every few weeks, or when they start to tap on the floor — that’s a sign it needs to be done! You can use nail clippers or a Dremel, but make sure to provide lots of high-value treats and get them in a good mood during nail care time.

This dog’s very short coat means the grooming maintenance is very little overall.
