    Hello gentlemen,

    I scanned this page from a magazine called Dog World. I found it in a collection of old dog magazines given to me by a coworker. The original is now in storage, but I would be happy to dig it out and rescan it if you are interested in a close up of the page.

    I must be blind but those bt's shown had no egg shaped heads, very different to the looks of today's, amazing what 60+ years of careless breeding by many had done to this breed, unfortunately this wont be the first or last

    lol..well they certainly had full heads with fill under the eye..guess it depends on the choice of words but they both mean the same

    i totally agree i dont see any egg heads...i see old fashioned bull terriers...must be mixed. :lol:

    considering the pics mostly show front shots, they have fairly full heads they have fill under the eyes no snipey narrow muzzles or ears set on like a donkeys..if you cant see that well Im not surprised lol lol

    Bag they are just in aerodynamic mode, my bully does that when he runs, plays, sticks his head out the window in the car etc.


    kinda like that, I wish they were always like that.
