Not for the inexperienced dog owner, the Bull Terrier is considered a very stubborn breed. They are very spirited, and show an affinity for children, making them an excellent family pet. By working with the dog when it is young, it will be much more likely to obey. These dogs often have personalities that are known for being brave and spirited, so a potential owner should take the time needed to work and socialize the dog properly. Bull Terriers have muscular bodies, and they are the only dog breed that has triangular shaped eyes. Because of their short coats, owners must be diligent in protecting the dog from bug bites, such as fleas and mosquitos. These can lead to hives and itching if left untreated.
