bull terrier anyone? Can't Post

Hi guys, i'm new here. I've been browsing through this forum for a few day but couldn't find any posts regarding bull terrier or miniature bull terrier.

I don't have a dog at the moment but i'm very interested in BT / mBT (in fact, i think i've fallen in love with them!). For months now, i've been searching the net for infos about the bullies and found many good websites about them.

As far as i know, a typical bull terrier is active, interesting, playful and clownish. It is also extremely attached to its owners or family but doestn't like other dogs much, especially of the same sex. It's considered an intelligent breed but quite stubborn (one of the reason why i like BT).

Although i would love to have a bull terrier right now but sadly my situation doesn't allow me to. I'm working 10 hours a day & i live in a condo. Maybe some time in the future i will get one, hopefully.

So, anyone out there with a bully or two? I would love to hear about them.

Sigh! I guess there are not many bull terriers around in Malaysia. Bull Terrier is such a rare sight & now with the strict import law imposed, i wonder if i can ever catch a glimse of one... anyone ever seen a BT in Malaysia?

I've read it somewhere in the web that says a bull terrier is cross breed from a bull dog, english terrier (now extinct) & dalmation. So you can imagine what you get is a dog that's physically very strong but agile. It has a temperament of a strong-willed gladiator but doesn't pick up fights unless provoked. In fact, BTs are really very attached to their owner & families(they love children). They trive under love & attention. Be assured that a BT will protect its master at all cost untill they can no longer move.

Well, at lease that's what i know from the web. What say you???

Hi Vince,

Yes, it's difficult to get a bull terrier here. I was looking for one two years back but couldn't get from any pet shops or breeders. So I ended up buying a pair of JRTs. The bull terrier's face looks like shark :) Quite unique features and sure they look tough. If you manage to find any breeder, please let me know too. Thanks.

Re: [Vince7] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmmm...

Some people find BTs ugly but I like them because they come in such unique colours and shape. Wink In fact, I've got a mini BT beanie and I used to put it in my car until someone said that it was ugly and took it out... Crazy

AFAIK, this breed is quite popular in Aust and I used to see some around. Was drawn to the breed once I found out what it was. Laugh Anyway, all I know about BT is that they do have some sensitive skin and so, got to watch out for that... Tongue *sigh*... They are a fun-loving dog... Smile

Hello,Smile

Not too sure if there are any here in M'sia...If you dig deep enough you might find one or two. Will ask around for you.

Have you called MKA yet to see if there are any registered here?

A while back there was an article abt an BT and his owner either here or in S'pore. Can't recall.

Re: [Vince7] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks for the info, RealityDreamer.Smile

Just as i expected... bull terriers are rare in Malaysia.

No, i haven't called MKA yet... As for now, i'm still doing my research on this breed. I just want to know them better and prepare myself before deciding to look for a breeder either local one or import. (i can import a BT from other country, right?)

Anyway, what i've learned from the web isn't very encouraging... many BT owner stressed that a BT is not an easy dog to raise. Knowing that, i certainly will take my time and not rush into things.

I'll be grateful if anyone can provide me with any info on bull terrors (i mean bull terriers)Wink

Hello shoku,

I've been searching for BT for quite a while now.

The attachment below is some ads I found in a newspaper's classified section.

Hope it's useful to you. A little warning though, BTs very mischievious & thick headed sometimes.

As for me, I'm not ready yet to add a BT to my home.

Hi Vince7, I can confirm that there are indeed Bull Terriers in Malaysia. I regularly see a 5-year adult, white with brown patches, being walked by a middle-aged man around my place. The character is as you described - friendly with people but not other dogs. Looks tough and intimidating. Happy hunting,J

Hello jaytan, thank you for the bully sighting report!
Do you get the chance to meet the bully? Is it male of female?

Yes, there are indeed a few bullies around in Malaysia. There's one around my friend's place that i know of but never get the chance to look at him (or her) yet! That one is a white bully with black eye patch.

Anyone else has sighted a bull terrier around?

Re: [Vince7] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Vince7, it is a male but that is all I know about it. The owner tries to avoid other dogs so our doggies dont get to socialise. But the man is polite enough to explain that his doggie can get worked up around other dogs. Otherwise he is a beauty - the dog, I mean . Best regards,J

Re: [jaytan] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

A male bully... that's great!

Too bad your doggies can't get close to befriend the bully. I bet your doggies are curious about him. Just imagine what they might have said: "Hey look! There's an alien dog over there... let's go check it out!" "Nah, it looks like a pig with his master."

Seriously, bull terriers have often been mistaken for all sorts of animals like pig, sheep, polar bear...

Here's a guide to help anyone out there who is having trouble recognising the mischievious bull terriers (thanks to www.wariors-kennel.com):

You' re walking down the street and suddenly you notice some unusual animal. It looks like a dog, it has four legs, tail, owner but you just can't connect it with any dog you know, and that nose, first thing that it reminds you of is a pig.
Congratulations, you have met real bull terrier". You can't believe that is a bull terrier? OK, it has very strong body and frightening appearance but at same time it's funny and so… sympathetic. Yes, yes that is bull terrier. In case you mix names (bull terrier and pitt bull are not same breed), if you believe in mostly incorrect gossips or if you are not enough informed you will probably "run away", but if you give them a chance they will almost certainly capture your heart.

Re: [jaytan] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't help it (about my imagination running wild)! I've been wanting to have a bully for months now, but I don't want to rush it. That's because I've been warned while doing my research on BTs.
Not that i want to scare anyone really, but here's some pointers for would be BT owners:

Read this before getting a bull terrier :
- BT owners often call themselves "being OWNed by their bullies"
- "a 3 years old child in a dog suit" best describes a bully. (in fact, an owner once said that her newborn child is much easier to raise than her bully)
- bullies need to get plenty of exercise and be kept busy...especially when young. "A tired Bully is a good Bully!"
- bullies only become mature (less active & playful) after 5 years of age
- owners know that once their bullies escaped, they are gone. Yes, GONE & will never come back by themselves. (I guess bullies are too playful & fun seeking that they won't want go back to their BORING home, sigh!)
- if bullies are bored & lonely, they'll let you know by destroying everything he can destroy in your house! (believe me, their teeth & jaws are as powerful as your electric saw)
- "bully run" or "huckle butt" is a bizarre behavior in bullies which they tuck their ears behind and run around in the house at super sonic speed, barely avoiding anything in their way (if you find yourself in his way, DON'T move an inch or you'll be squashed!)
- "creepy crawls" or "G.I. Joe" means bullies lay down on the ground like army men and dragging themselves back & forth using ONLY their front legs.
- when bored or in need of attention, bullies sometimes make strange sounds (maybe just murmuring or grumbling like old man).
- if a bully wants something but doesn't get it, he won't just forget it. Someday somehow, he'll trick you into giving it. Yes, they are that intelligent.
- bullies are quick learners. If you make them do the same thing repeatedly, they'll simply walk away.
- bullies farts are smelly and it comes without warning.
- bullies like to eat anything they think is interesting. (your shoes, sofas, table & chair, vacuum cleaner, christmas tree... basically anything they can put into their big mouthes). Seriously, some bullies died because of blockage in their stamach.

If you finished reading the above and still managed to appreciate bullies, then congratulation, you have the qualities required to be OWNed by a bull terrier.

As for me, i'll keep on doing my research and prepareing myself while i wait for the right moment to find my bully boss.

Regards,
Vince7

Hi Vince7, since you are hell bent on punishment, why dont you get a couple of Beagles like me. Guarantee your life will never be the same again. Just read the casualty list under the chewing or pee and poop sections, hehehe. The only consolation is Beagles are smaller so you can still muscle them a bit. But you will have to handle their attitude or you will wither and blow away. Best regards,J

Re: [jaytan] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi there... here is another Bull Terrier lover... Smile

The one in the picture - I breed it myself, the mother gave birth to three different color's babies, one didn't make it(pure brown), another is this pure white(no patch), and the last one is a male in brindle.

But emm... they are all in Sg now...

It's truely difficult to get one in My... so I instead, got myself a Basset Hound.. not a bad choice, quite an active baby.

Tell you what, I happened to see 3 BT in JB for sale, in brown, but to me, they are quite thin, according to the shopowner, "they are from Aus", but I didn't ask where they were whelped... probably just a shop assistant...to me, they are kind of thin, unlike my own. My babies were very strong and sturdy even when they were really young... but now the female has become slimmer yet the male has become a more sturdy one...

Quite a great experience with my BTs, they are really loyal and sweet, and always "offer help" whenever I am busy with my gardening or fixing things in the yard....

Re: [derek_poh] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi derek_poh, you've got a lovely bully! I wonder what happened to them? So, you breed them yourself huh? great job! any chance of breeding again?

I noticed the bt on your avatar is white with black patches in both eyes. You said there are also brown & brindle puppies. Makes me wonder, is the mother white & father colored?

Anyway, its good to know you've enjoyed the company of your bully. Not everyone know how to appreciate them. Some people even mistaken them for pit bulls. The fact is that bullies are really sweet & like to stick to people.

As for the bt on sale in a pet shop, i have to say i am reluctant to buy puppies from pet shops, unless i'm sure they come from good breeders. That's one reason why i've been taking my time to look for my future bully.
