Hi everyone, I own a 2 year old mainly white with small black brindle patches female bull terrier called Athena she has quite a harsh coat which is easy to maintain she doesnt really shed much fur mainly in the summer time. I wanted to share my experiences of this breed with you all, from a young age I have been around this breed my Dad use to breed and own them, they are utterly fantastic dogs with the right ownership you must be firm but fair with them, they are incredibly stubborn dogs so sometimes you have to put your foot down, no means no, they are a very strong breed and therefore they will not show you if they are in pain etc just look for a difference in behaviour, they will eat and eat if you let them so watch out for this as they also pile on the pounds luckily for me Athena is very energetic, they are most defiantly clowns of the dog world and will do anything to keep you happy but also gladiators too and will readily protect your family if need be but where some may be quite laid back like Peggy one of my childhood EBT others can be quite hyperactive like Athena my EBT now she will quite often run in circles around the house or will constantly want you to throw her kong ball she loves cuddles but has one bad habit she is also food aggressive which with the right training she is slowly starting to come out of this, she shares our house with an Olde Tyme Bulldog and a mini yorkie she gets on great with them but once out of the house she does not like other dogs I think this is due to her protective side coming out I usually walk her on a harness for long walks as they tend to lean all their weight forward whilst walking and will choke themself on a collar, however I use a collar on short walks as persistant use of a harness will lead your dog to become bow legged. She is great with people although I have to say alot of people are not great with her I frequently get people cross the road when they see her or grab their children it really makes me mad if they was only educated on the breed they would see just how loving they are, in general she is a great dog and I couldnt imagine my life without an EBT in it.
Summary: Amazing family dogs once you've had one you wont want any other breed!
