Bull Terrier: How Should a Purebred Bull Terrier Look Like

A purebred bull terrier has to look like a dignified gentleman or like a graceful lady. Buying bull terrier pups, make sure they feel firm and look well-padded, have a big, egg-formed head without bruises or grooves. The bull terrier puppies are healthy creatures with large skeleton, a perfect scissors-like  bite containing of  six upper and six lower incisor teeth. The teeth have to be absolutely clean, of regular shape, covered by tightly fitting lips.


The bull terrier's head has some special features you should pay attention at: it has to be firm, elongated, deep, but not coarse and absolutely flat in the upper part, from ear to ear. The nose must be only black, without light spots, with well developed nostrils. This is what is called an actual bull terrier. Though you can also draw some conclusions about the breed purity after getting to know the bull terrier breeder and the dog itself. A miniature bull terrier has quite the same standards: an egg-shaped head, a cast down muzzle. But it mustn't be taller than 14 inch (35,5 cm). Other breed kinds like pit bulls have their own special features.

Exterior Disadvantages

The English bull terrier puppies must have little triangular eyes of black or blackish (hazel) colour. Blue eyes are a big breed disadvantage. Though Staffordshire bull terriers can have rather light-coloured eyes.
A spot on the nose is also considered a disadvantage. The bull terrier pups mustn't have any grooves on their heads. If they do, it is a deficiency.
