    I found these in my virtual wanderings of works of art depicting dogs. If I have found the location of the original work or art, I've included the name of the museum.

    Private collection

    Notation that was included: This painting is very interesting. The image of the Bull Terrier of 1745 is rich with information. It shows us that at that time, the English had already begun a selection that would, a century later, lead to the family Bull Terrier that we know now.
