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

Hi Vince7, Very interesting posts i have read here. So have you manage to get a BT yet? I am looking for one too! Any idea where to get them??

I have no experience in keeping dogs before but I feel like I can take on a Bully as my first dog cos my dad use to have one and has relate some of his BT experience to me when I was young. Most of the behaviours of the BT as describes in this topic here seems very true. A word of advice from my dad, you have to be a very discipline and tough person to own a Bully. Anyway, dad is no longer around and I like to try out something that he did before. BT is a very interesting dog.

There are many stories about Terry (dad's BT) that I like to share, perhaps in sometimes.Smile

Re: [kc1356] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello kc1356 , welcome to the forum.Smile I see you are also a BT lover! Like you, I have zero experience in being "owned" by a BT or any other dog. I think it would be quite a challenge for anyone (with or without experience) to keep a bull terrier. I agree with what your father said, we have to be disciplined and to let the BT know who's boss, or else... we’ll become the servant lah.

If you’re looking for a BT, try calling MKA. They should be able to help. Also, I’ve seen quite a few ads on the classified sections on The St*r. Hope you’ll find your bullie soon. Meanwhile, I think you can do some research about BT and how to care for them. Maybe buy a book or two. There’s a forum which I think is very informative & helpful for BT owners & lovers, http://denim.bbboy.net/bullterrier .

Wish you luck on your quest to find your BT! Do keep us informed on your progress, ok?
As for me, I hope that I can get my BT a few years from now. Maybe then, we can start a BT Club of our own, how about that?

Hey, I would like to hear the story about Terry sometimes in the near future.Smile

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

Thanks for the info Vince7! I visited the web page of MKA and seems like they dont breed dogs. But they might have the records of owners who breed dogs. Not sure if they would disclose the info to me but will try if I have no other option. The BT club sounds like a good idea. I will shift to my new home by end of June. After I have settle down, I will get a BT as my jogging partner. I hope Vince7 you will get your BT also soon, good luck!

Ahh! Terry, well trained physically but poor behavior and attitude. If he is still alive he is older than me by five yrs that’s about age 35. He did not died of old age nor did he died from disease, he fall in an out-numbered victorious battle. Stories are quite long but I try to recall as much as I could. I like to apologize in advance if I bored you guys.

I have never met Terry before simply because I don't stay in the house Terry was staying (don't ask why Unsure). Owing to Terry great deeds & achievements (mainly destruction), every stories was told by my dad and I believe him cos he is an honest man. Dad is an experience dog trainer even at young age and his best and first guard dog is a German Shepherd. Don’t know what name is but that dog would fetch my dad’s fish traps that he lay in the river few hundred metres away from house every morning and would fetch his school bags from home whenever he forgot to bring it to school and whoever touches my father even with a little finger, it would bark (show warning) at the fella.

But when mention about Terry, dad will usually nod his head. Although Terry is a BT (from Australia) but was a breed somewhere in 1980s and I would guess that he is a bit rougher and tougher compare to the new age breed of today which are descendants from BTs from a loving and caring families. According to dad, Terry might be descended from BT that is use for hunting wild beast in AUS.

Pain Endurance: Once Terry causes a nuisance and dad whack the shit out of him with a broomstick (guess what?..the shit came out from my dad). I know is cruel but typical prehistoric Asian mah…Anyway the broomstick broken into two during the furious whack and Terry still stand, stay and stare at my dad with his tail wriggling. Terry seems to enjoy the beating. For the split second in that moment, dad describe as his first time he is afraid of his own dog and is also the last time he beat Terry ever again.

Destruction: Dad and Terry stay in a house in rural/jungle areas. However Terry is allowed to roam around the house compound all day all night, basically his playground (I think my dad got fed up in repairing Terry’s steel home). Dad would build and repair the gate and fencing to protect the house, Terry would destroy it every now and then, thinking that it’s not necessary since he is around.

Agility: Coming back home from work, dad was surprise when terry fetch him a half-dead snake in his mouth. After inspection, Terry was not bitten by the snake but the snake has been bitten all over. That’s not the first encounter with snake, previously dad discovered a snake lying underneath his pillow and he said that he is lucky to have the habit of lifting the pillow up and beat it before he sleep on it.

Watch Dog or Predator: Most dog would bark if there see strangers in front of the main gate of the house but Terry will hide at the side quietly waiting to give a pleasant surprise if the strangers ever enter. My dad notice that for sometime and he always call on to his name first, wait for the dog to appear infront of him before entering his own house. He describe that Terry might have a poor vision at nite and he certainly does not wish to be bitten by the bully. According to dad, this is common among BTs. But my research tells me that BTs only have deafness as a problem, not sure though, need some confirmation from BT experts out there. Anyone??

The Duel: There is this Doberman Pinscher in the neighborhood nearby that always bark and showing aggressiveness at Terry from a distance. Terry would go crazy and trying very hard to damage the entrance steel gate to go out and face the tall, handsome and muscular black dog (Terry will be a dwarf if stand next to him). Finally one day, the Doberman was release (don’t know how) and it came to my dad’s house alone. This make Terry really crazy and he bite the gate again that could have been half damage by now and finally manage to get out there and fight the Doberman. Things was happening so quickly that no words or commands from my dad could stop him the moment he steps out the gate. The Doberman was down to the ground in less than 5 mins. Terry sunk his teeth on his neck. Dad says he can even hear the sound of cracking bones very clearly as Terry tightens its jaws whenever the Doberman moves an inch. Dad tried very hard in pulling him away and hitting him but doesn’t help. After another 10-20 mins the Doberman is dead. After Terry is satisfy with that he then remove his teeth from the deformed neck. The next day, the owner of the Doberman was dragging his dog to disposal and dad saw its neck can actually do a 360 turn (think my dad has lots of explanation to do with his neighbors).

The Battle: Terry never get along well with other dogs or animals. He hate dogs especially those that are arrogant and barks a lot. He likes to fight and kill as describe by my dad whenever the opportunity arises. Be it whether it is a cat OR a tiger, one against one OR one against ten. In some occasions he was really out-numbered by a pack of stray dogs or ‘kampung’ dogs. Any passerby will think that the stray dogs are bullying a little dog. But in actual fact, it is Terry who saw a the pack celebrating and having a party outside his home in which he was not invited, so again he whack through the gate, rush toward the crowd and pick a fight. He drops one of his opponent down on the floor, again the neck, while others starts to bite him all over his body. His courage, determination and concentration is on one dog at a time. Having witness his fight before, time again & again, dad will not even stay and watch him or stop him doing his stunts and simply wait in the house for him to come back when he needs medical attention. He usually come back exhausted and bloody stains over his white coat and that’s normal but the last was a bit different…. his balls and stick (private part) was badly bitten. He died 3 days after his final battle. Others might think that my father has tortured the bully to death.

Well, that’s about it! You like Terry?? Some of the physical training techniques my dad has on Terry, I try not to expose them. I think is cruel and totally unnecessary in today’s world. If I have the intention of building my BT into a killer, I will make sure he is equally a loving, caring and obedient killer if not better.Wink

Re: [kc1356] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for your story of Terry, it reminds me how powerfull BT can be. “Gladiator of the canine world” is what they are sometimes called. Although in today’s world, BTs are known more for their comical attitude & friendliness towards human, we must not forget their history in the fighting pits. Still, I strongly believe that BTs are not natural born KILLERs. Normally, any other dog can be aggressive. In my opinion, the behavior of any dog is based on how they are brought up & the exposure they got. The right training is needed for any dog for it to be well behaved. Even so, we still can’t guarantee we have absolute control over them when natural instinct take over. I think basically it is how they are built that strikes fear in people who do not understand them (just look at their massive jaws & shark-like teeth, muscular body but very agile).

I can understand the situation of your father & Terry the BT. I think Terry is very loyal & protective towards his master (I assume Terry is a male). Yes, I like Terry. It’s a sad ending for him but I admire his courage. You said Terry is descended from a family of hunting BT in Australia? Hmm, I guess they can be some kind of hunting dogs, there’s some terrier blood in them still. That explains the prey killing instincts (in Terry’s case, the snake is the victim). This is something BT owners have to watch out for because that prey can easily be someone’s pet! I find that STEEL home your father built for Terry a good example of BT’s destructive ability. Very funny! Oh yeah, remember to “puppy prove” your house before getting your bully! Unless you want to come back home to find your cute little bull terrier has eaten half of the house!

In my limited knowledge, I think BT has weakness in their ears but not eyes. Even if their vision is poor, I’m sure they can easily make out who you are with their super nose. So I guess your father has been fooled by Terry there, because I’m sure Terry will know he’s home long before he gets near the door... hmm, maybe that’s just one of the funny things BTs do to entertain their owner (or maybe themselves)? Terry : ”Hehe, daddy is coming home, I think I’ll hide here behind the door and scare the hell out of him, hehehehe...” anyway, just my imagination.

Er… I’m scared when you said “If I have the intention of building my BT into a killer, I will make sure he is equally a loving, caring and obedient killer if not better.” I really hope you’re not planning to train your BT as a KILLER.

Anyway, I’ve found a good description on BT from AKC that says…
It was a dog for sportsmen in times when life in general was more strenuous and of rougher, coarser fiber - when dog fights were allowed and well attended. As fighting dog or "gladiator" of the canine world, such a dog had to be of great strength, agility, and courage. Withal, he was bred by gentlemen for gentlemen, for those who had a great sense of fair play, and who scorned the liar and the deceiver in any game. The dog was taught to defend himself and his master courageously, yet he was to seek or provoke a fight - and so the white variety became known as "the white cavalier," a title which he bears with distinction to this day.Contrary to the opinion of those who do not know him, the Bull Terrier is an exceedingly friendly dog; he thrives on affection, yet is always ready for a fight and a frolic. The preference in this country is for a well-balanced animal, not freaky in any particular, but well put together, active, and agile - a gladiator of perfect form.

Forgot to ask you, are you getting a male or female, Bull Terrier or Miniature Bull Terrier? They are basically the same, it’s just the size factor. But I’ve heard that the mini BT has more “character” packed into the small body than the standard one! As for me, I also thought of getting a BT so that I can have a partner to do some exercise (tummy’s getting bigger already). I wish to have a bully now but… I can’t imagine leaving him alone for 10 hours in weekdays with nobody at home. Now, I’m planning something & hopefully I’ll be ready for a bully in a year or two. That’s it for now, good luck to you on your search.Smile

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

Hi, just found your thread..... still haven't gotten your BT huh?

Long time ago, before I was even born, my grandfather was a BT breeder..... When I was born, he decided to breed dobermans instead.... dunno why he changed the breedCrazy Now he doesn't breed dogs anymore...Frown

I have seen a few BTs around, a neighbour of mine has a pure white one. I don't know this neighbour but I know he keeps dogs like trophies. He has a mix breed dog, a terrier mix, a dalmation and a BT. I can't do anything lah coz who wants to listen to a girl rite? When I bring my dogs out for a walk, I pity those dogs, they rarely are taken for walks, sometimes they just open the gate to let the terrier and mix breed run the whole taman. I've never seen the dalmation taken for walks and the BT only gets walked on certained days..... The worst thing is they never let the dogs run in their compound. They are chained and caged the whole day coz they are afraid the dogs will damage their beautiful grassMad

I pity the BT, so young and has to live a life like that. The bully is only 2yrs old. When the owner brought the bully out for a walk, he kept on pullling the choke chain and hitting it with a stick when it wanted to walk somewhere else.......Frown In my neighbourhood, I realised many chinese owners have dogs on chains, they never play with their dogs, they are treated as security.... I pity them so much... But I can't do anything coz they might treathen me with something......

My dad loves BT, we even went to dogshows to ask around for breeders...... but was too epensive for us... RM3000+ so we settled for boxers instead.... BT are very gentle and fun when they are properly trained.


Willy, my beloved shih tzu (22 March 1994- 8 August 2005) May you rest and live happily in Rainbow Bridge with the rest. You will forever be deeply missed by all.

RM3000+ ShockedShockedShocked for a bulldozer!!

Hi crazymouse, finally I get to know someone who have seen a white BT. May I know is it the mini or mega size bully?? Mousey, I really love BT,, do you think you can let me know where to meet the owner of the white BT? please....Unsure or at least which Taman you r staying.

Which dogshow did you go to? I have been to the one in London but have never attained one before in Malaysia. Would you like recommend, specially the one that have lots of BT display. Thanks!

I understand the owner who chained the bully. Releasing the bully will unleash hell. He should have plan properly before getting a bully (demolition proof the house). Can't imagine who would want to get a destructive machine for RM3K++ (I know...is Vince7! haha)Cool

You should advice your neighbors to provide more excercise for the BT. Otherwise the bully will go fat and crazy then die young!!Unsure Most experts say BT don't need much exercise and socialise but I think they need alot of it.

Re: [kc1356] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't say that the owner is a close neighbour, he lives at another roan but same taman lah but all I know is that he keeps the bully and all the other 3 dogs locked up the whole day so I never get a chance to see if it's pure white. I know the whole body white... couldn't see if got a patch on the face or not.... but I will tell you if it's 100% whiteSmile.

Can, you can come by.... I live in Setapak wo, if you know where is TARC at Wangsa Maju then I can come meet you lah. Oh, I think it's a mini coz quite small size. I don't think the BT is fat or crazy coz it never pull the lead whenever the owner brings it for a walk.

Have you tried calling MKA? I can't remember which dogshow I went but I know it was 5 yrs ago... I meet a breeder who breeds mini BT but I don't remember their names or have their number. I know they're showing dogs at a MKA dogshow around KL and Cheras. I don't go to many dogshows and sadly, there aren't many with BTs. I was only lucky to have meet the breeders with thier BTs. You should check out the forum on dogshows, maybe it can shed some light on the BTs seen in shows.

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

So… you have found my hiding place, haha!Wink Nope, I still haven’t got my BT yet, sigh!
I always dream of getting one now but it would be unfair to the BT because he’ll be home alone most of the time.

Wow, your grandfather used to breed BT ah? Any advise for us first time BT owners?

About your neighbour, I can’t understand why would someone do that to their dogs!Mad I mean, what’s the point of having dogs but keep them chained or caged all day. I’m surprised they care more for their grass than their dogs! IMO, any dog of any size will need some exercise. “a tired dog is a good dog” heard someone said that before. Anyway, if someone is afraid of their dogs damaging their house, I can only say “there’s no bad dogs, only bad owners”.

I really pity the poor BT. He doesn’t deserve to be treated like that. But I think there’s nothing you can do about it. Perhaps your father can have a chat with the neighbour?

RM3000+ for a BT sounds too expensive to me. I think RM2500+- is reasonable.

I agree with you that BTs are very gentle and fun when they are properly trained. They can be really sweet and funny. But they can also be HELL! Shocked

Yes I guess RM3K for a champ line BT is reasonable. It's hard to find a breeder (much more harder to find a good one!) in Malaysia. In England, there's BT rescue shelter where you can adopt BTs.

I see you have 4 doggies at home. Are they getting along fine?

Haha... 4 monsters/angels hahaha...

The 2 boxers don't get along well, they were very good with each other at first like in the pic but later they try to fight for rank... very hard to control....

The other 2 is a shih tzu and a labrador. The shih tzu, Willy is the oldest, 10 yrs old and he's the top dog, the boss. All the other dogs respect himand never fight with him for dominance at all. Tammy the labrador is a spayed female and a very palyful girl.

Yeah, in England it's all so different. They have shelters that saves pets and no pet is put down. I watched it on Animal Planet on Astro...

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

Hi all, thanks crazmouse! I like to meet up with you but I'm not ready (am a very shy personBlush). Anyway is good to know BT exist in setapak, is good enough. Any vets around that area. I could check with them and see if they came across any BT owners before.

It is easy to tell whether is mini or mega size. If you said it is two yrs old, i would imagine that it has reach adult stage and should stand around the height of 20-24" (somewhere around a man's knee) for type mega and half of that for mini.

The last time in London dog exhibition, BT is the only dog that is chain up using a half inch thick cowboy ropes in the exhibition booth eventhough it looks harmless and friendly when I approach them. The rest of the dogs are free to roam. Even on the street, owners chain them using this type of rope not metal chain or leather straps (no idea whyCrazy). It really caught my attention the first time cos I thought someone is bringing a small little fat cow aroundLaugh

I didn't call MKA yet but will soon. I am actually looking at a budget around 1.5K-2K. I don't need a champion breed, any rojak breed will do lah. He might not be a champ in public but in my heart, he is my champion boy!!

Vince7, got this address somewhere. But not sure if it is for real. It is for BT lovers to meetup around the world (incld M'sia). Thought you might want to chk it out.

Re: [kc1356] bull terrier anyone? [In reply to] Can't Post

Why shy? Hehehe... I'm also shy lah hehehe...

Bull terriers were actually bred to fight last time lah, I read that they can be aggressive to other dogs so I guess that's why the are tied up, just in case..... They don't use metal chains coz it might break suddenly of be too heavy and might strain the BT's neck. Leather straps ah.... will be chewed into bits very soon that's why you don't see many peopl using leather straps for dogs, just for their collars. I know what you mean, BTs look like little cows or to me, cute bullish pigs hehehe.... eh, I'm saying anything bad about the BT, they just look like a pig... really.... I was on a farm in Perth and was able to be colse to a pig. It wasn't fat or clumsy but really solid and strong.....hehehe....

Yeah, got 2 or 3 vets here but I don't think it'll be any help coz people mostly bring in GSD, GR, chow chow, Mix breeds and many many cats.... here mostly Malays so it's very hard to see pedigree dogs.... the guy is just lucky to get hold of a Bull Terrier.... I don't care about my garden, all my dogs play in my grass and I don't care what they do.... if the BT were mine... wha... he can go crazy all day hehehe.... but BT owners can only have one BT or fightings might occur.

Thanks, I'll check it out soon.Smile

Hi kc1356, yes I have been to the site “bullterrier.meetup.com” before. Last few time I looked, no meeting took place. Not much response from BT owners & lovers, I guess. Anyway, I’ve signed up already. There’re just 3 active member at the moment, that’s you, me & another guy jrwong. Hope there’ll be more people joint in.

To make a link like this http://www.ruijters.org, all you have to do is :
1) press the button "url" in the bottom right corner where you type your text once.
2) then paste or type the add.
3) finally press the "url" button again
Hope that helps.

To crazymouse, I have always thought that BTs sometimes look like pig(white), cow(white with black spot), rabbit(huge pink ears), rat(white tail)....
same with you, I would die to have a BT. He can have all the freedom in the house... just don't break anything expensiveUnsure which I'm sure he'll do once in a while!

I don't dare to imagine what will happen if you put a BT along with 2 boxers, a lab & a Shih Tzu in one house... Pirate big trouble
