Bull Terrier placement questions

Postby msvette2u » Sun Jul 11, 2010 10:08 am

We have this Bull Terrier mix and I'm curious as to how much the new owner will need to be concerned about dog-dog aggression in the future?

I have asked about Bull Terrier dog aggression in the past on here (along with SBT dog-dog aggression).
And I have been told that they have just as much a propensity for dog aggression as APBTs.

In your case, I would treat them just like you were adopting out a pit bull mix to them. Make sure they know about the possibility. :))
And that they take it seriously. :))

Thank you!
I put in his bio that he should not be exposed to dog parks. I will hammer that point home and also keeping him on lead in high traffic areas.
Right now he plays with the other dogs fine but he's only about 4mos. old.

As the owner of a Bull Terrier mix who is quite DA, yes, they definitely have a propensity for it... perhaps as much as an APBT or any bull and terrier type. :thumbsup:

Thanks. I explained to them about dog-dog aggression and they agreed that he won't be visiting dog parks.
Prevention is better than trying to clean up a mess you wish the dog had not gotten into!

Yeh even though he was a mix I told them they would be blamed if he lost his temper on some little fluff mutt, and they understood :)

Don't forget to mention the snoring while awake and asleep!

English bull terriers snore? He didn't have that problem, but he was mixed with what seemed to be Border collie.
He wasn't an English Bulldog mix.

Oh man, that's what I get for skimming. I read it as boston terriers. :))
