Does anyone know of a bull terrier breeder that still uses their dogs for work?

    Nutty keep thinking that way..

    the beauty of the bull terrier is that with the variety of types that exists within the genepool, a breeder can focus on any of the types, that they prefer and not have to crossbreed to do it.

    each to thier own I say.

    no, they are about facts, but you johnnyboy and few more can't handle the truth. I don't even like bull terriers that much, but since nutty said " staffords are also showdogs" I just wanted to show her it isn't so. stick to the facts and history, don't make your own that's all.

    it always amazes me just how ignorant show folk are when it comes to dogs.......there can be no possible argument or dispute as to which " type " makes for a healthier happy dog.....the pictures posted by 12 guage show some fantastic specimens in clear and obvious fit healthy condition.....they are not super fit peaked dogs at all just dogs in clean tidy everyday shape,the shine to their coats the way they are up on their toes and showing good physical tone is obvious for even somebody who knows nothing about dogs to see.......yet the show fanciers STILL persist in pretending their " type " the squashed up lazy stale dogs pranced around the show ring are a superior animal.....how ignorant !
    if you really care about dogs of the bull terrier breeds then breed towards health and fitness not what some deluded old fool wrote down on a piece of paper as a breed standard where everything a dog wants to be is sacrificed for a pathetic overly exaggerated cartoon character look....

    sometimes a picture says a thousand words i sometimes wish i had taken pictures back years ago after all !....the pictures above say everything that needs to be said about breed standards.

    Old type or not ..they look very leggy..most of the staffs here in the uk have shorter legs than that...even the fit ones are shorter in the leg than the ones in those pictures :confused:

    Heres a pic of what i call a proper staff ......the EBT on the the left i bred BTW :)...The staff is one of my mates...hes a right little handfull and is hyper...like me my mate is in to his fittness and takes his staffy jogging with him for a couple of miles every other day... the dog easily runs rings around most dogs in the park !
    I dont like to see them fat but i do prefer see a bit of meat on the them ;)
    I await the regurgitated criticismm with much anticipation :D

    well,, let's see, i've heard bull terriers are also pure. let's go back to 1917 or so i believe... BT crosssed with collie, dalmatian, bedlingtong terrier, etc... so that makes them dogs linebred mongrels :lol:

    ---------- Post added at 08:40 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:56 PM ----------

    I always love facts and history, they just come handy to prove what's true. I can say my staffords are old type, athletic whatever...but i always like to go the source, this way we all can see if the show staffords of today are anything like the real staffords of old.

    actually you have to go back further than that lol..the breed was well established by 1887, the first bull terrier shown was in 1862 the first bull terrier club UK was formed in the late 1800s..pays to know your facts..before posting.

    this is what i dont get?? cause it has longer legs it must be a mix?? why cant you think people prefered the look, therefor bred more staffies with longer legs-just like people do with the bull terrier, breed a certain look...does not mean it is mixed, but some people bred the ones with the longer legs the most.

    Ok let's go back to 1887 or even 1800 they are still linebred mongrels. the year does not make a difference.

    the people who think that way, also think bull terriers were fighting dogs back in the day...:lol: which is ALMOST not true.

    these dogs have been KC registered for several decades, that goes to show you don't know what you are talking about. again look at the pics of the past and compare them to these you've posted; you too are going to tell me that the show staffords of today are closer in appearance?, or the pics arent big enough for you to see? Have you missed them? or you too are being selective on what you answer?

    no i never said the were fighting dogs, i clearly said they are mongrels just linebred since, well...1800's according to the people that knows, not since the 1917 when they introduced collie, dalmatian and whatever else

    ---------- Post added at 12:24 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:07 AM ----------

    Bt's are not my breed of choice as have said before but I love history, and I believe the first BT's shown were in the year 1861 and not 1862 as you imply. two dogs were shown by Mr. T Hustwick's Violet first and Hustwick Jess the reis and then a show in Manchester took place the same year, there was a class for bull terriers with F. Howard was first place, S Gregson second place, P Purnister third place, and Shepherd fourth place.

    what i've meant was that i thought the show fanciers started introducing the other breeds around 1917, could be wrong though
