The Bull Terrier is known for their sturdiness and stocky body along with their hallmark egg-shaped head, pointed ears and smaller eyes. Common coat colors include white and all other colors either solid or with white markings.
In regards to diet, this can be discussed with your veterinarian to determine what the most appropriate dog food would suit your terrier. The Bull Terrier was bred for sport, meaning exercise will greatly benefit them. This can include a long walk, tracking, agility, and others. These activities can help stimulate their minds as well as exhaust any extra energy they may have pent up.
