    I like a dog thats bred to work. I'm a huge fan of the old-type bull terriers but there aren't many out there. I know its not the type many people here like or are used to, but when I saw this picture it really made me want to know more about the dog and whoever owns it. Unfortunately all I have is the picture but I still wanted to share:


    And I think the short cropped ears look sharp! Often times the ears of the old English Bull Terriers were cropped before an ear that naturally stood erect was fixed into the type.

    I really like that dog! Are you sure it is purebred BT?

    My friend in Mallorca owns BTs just like that, they crop the ears like that because their dogs thick ears don't stand erect. They've been breeding the dogs for over a hundred years and they don't dilute them with outside dogs. His dogs are now used for protecting their land, but they were used in honour fights with other families in the past.

    This dog actually looks very bulldoggish to me, not terrierish... I don't like the cropped ear look.

    That dog doesn't look bulldogish at all, that dog is one of the most terrier looking BTs I've ever seen on here.

    Looks fit, buy I don't like ear cropping in any dog, I find it to be barbaric, just IMO

    I didnt mean the "bulldog type BT", I meant like the wrinkles and the soft looking fur on the legs look more like a bulldog than a terrier to me IMO. But maybe it's just the way he's standing..

    Oh, I know what you mean now. I actually think that maybe a young dogue brasiliero which is a long term cross of the bull terrier and boxer, they've been bred for so long their now a breed in their own right.

    I really do like that dog. Wish there were more of them rather than the BTs today.

    Bulldog/Terrier type refers to bone structure and build in the dogs. Bulldog type refers to thicker, low set, barrel chested type dogs. Terrier types are longer in leg, finer bone structure, etc. It might be confusing when talking about Bull Terriers because even the thickest dogs don't really look like what comes to mind when you say "bulldog" but its alot easier to see in Staffordshire Bull Terriers. Some AKC Staffordshire Bull Terriers are so thick and squatty and over exaggerated that they literally look almost like english bulldogs! Other examples usually from the working side of the spectrum are smaller and lighter with very athletic builds so much that they almost look like beefed up Patterdale Terriers.

    I don't know if it is or it isn't. It looks to me like the type of dog Lyndon Ingles breeds. It's what an EBT should be. The head has the handsome bull terrier skull shape without being overdone, and more importantly, the body is athletic and in the proper proportion. A dog built like that can really move.

    Gorgeous. I wouldn't mind owning a bull terrier that looked like that!

    there are some bull terriers out there that are lean and muscular and still have some what the proper head. this dog has a BIG stop on his head which leads me to almost certainly believe this is a mix. They should never have a such a big stop.

    "The head has the handsome bull terrier skull shape without being overdone."

    It has a definite stop. Handsome fellow though.

    Looks like a BT/APBT mix. It would be so awesome with floppies.

    The stop isn't that prominent. And didn't the "original" BTs have heads similar to that shape?

    i wish it wasnt so sprawled out like that

    Hmm..Kinda. It looks pretty defined from the picture I can see. Well, compared to most BT's. The oldies did have a similar shape. DANG. If only we had a side profile. :(

    Crazy how much a breed can change over time. I loooove dramatic parrot heads. Wish I had one.

    Then again I would love multiple pictures of this handsome fellow. I would take one of these guys in a heartbeat if I could get one as a pup and keep natural ears.

    I agree with Hucklebutt...the dog in this pic dont look right ...i would bet anyone a £10 to a £1 hes crossed with something...its not that his head ent round,its got no side thickness ether,his head is to much like an APBT imo ...and why do that to the poor dogs ears ?:(
