Looking for working Bull Terriers...

Discussion in 'Bull Terrier' started by Swamp Rooster, Aug 29, 2014.

  1. Hello all, I am looking for working bull terriers . I have been hunting terriers since I was a kid and have always been interested in the Bull Terrier. I am interested in any stories of them , pics , breeders , or people that are looking for the same thing I am.
    I have Airedale terriers now and want to put some more bull terrier into them.. I am hoping that the bull terrier adds a little bone and head . Also to harden up the coat a bit . Thanks in advance , Swamp Rooster ..

    You may want to talk to one of the mods, catchrcall, he also hunts with his dogs. I believe he had/has an Airedale mix. There's another member here that hunts with their BTs, can't remember their username though.

    I have a few dogs with some hairdale in them. Spunky little devils aren't they? What are you wanting to do with them that they'd need some more head and bone for?

    I don't have any experience with working bull terriers, never even seen one except in a video. They don't typically have the build I look for and are about as common as chicken teeth here so I tend to lean more toward the pit bull and American Bulldog side of things.
     
  5. I mostly coon hunt thick wood and swamps. I love the Airedales but I hate the soft coats. Some of the dales I see have a weak head.. I want to bread some bull terrier into my airedales and work that cross . I will work them in the woods free casting , calling , and trap line. I will see what happens from there but I think I will breed that cross back to a pure dale.
    I have had some good ones and a good one needs nothing else , but that coat is a pain . All of my good ones had thick heads and good bone..
    My dogs do not have to be super fast , I like them to be a medium to close dog.. My main dale right now will leave the country looking for a track..
    I am more into " type terrier" that bread really...I just think it is time for some fresh blood.... Plus I have always loved the bull terriers and my wife does to so it is an easy sell ;).
    We have had bull dogs of some sort since I was a kid, never a bull terrier... Swamp Rooster

    Long story short, I sort of inherited part of a line of dogs that some other folks started a while ago. There's some Airedale, Blackmouth, Pit, Red Cur, and Pointer in there. You will often get a slick haired dog in the same litter as one that has real wire type hair, and occasionally a softer haired dog. I haven't had too bad of luck with the wire haired ones except for the darn weed seeds. That can be a pain to pick out of the coats.
