Bull Terrier - The most human a dog can get

Posted January 20, 2015

I grew up on a farm. We would occasionally have this bull terrier x red cattle dog wander onto our property. He was always in terrible shape; he looked much older than our estimation of about 6 years, and had patches of hair missing from stress.

One day he stayed. And he became the greatest dog my family ever owned (6+ dogs over many years). He was incredibly loyal to all members of the house, extremely intelligent and had a unique human-like personality.

He was a tough dog, well suited to farm life being able to chase (and catch) rabbits and rats in the barn.

But he was terrified of lightning and stock whips, which may have come from his mistreated background.

Overall he was an incredible dog - an incredible breed.
