yea hes crazy he pulled all the lights off the christmas tree about an hour ago and tried eating the boubles,,hes a pain,owning a dog like this you need a lot of patience and you have to be consistent with training as they are strong minded dogs

Cute dog not a breed I would have chosen to have around a baby though.
i was waiting for a reply like that,,,do you know the first thing about these dogs apart from the bullshit you hear in the media,ive said it before a dogs only as bad as the owner,have you read any books on these dogs do you know any one who owns one,by your narrow minded comment i doubt it.every book on bull terriers state they are great with kids because they can take the rough and tumble kids give them,my son pulls his ears pokes his eyes and the dog just sits there looking at him trying to lick his hands.on the other hand my girlfriends mum has a jack russell and when my son pulled its ears it went mad trying to bite him.the worst type of dogs for nipping kids are little stupid lap dogs like jack russells ,westies etc.so before you pass judgement i suggest you get your facts straight.labradors have the most recorded dog bites on people,not bull terriers or rottweillers,when a dog like mine or another so called aggressive dog bites someone the media hype it up and its all over the news,theres far more bites by lap dogs and when do you see the headline of a savage jack russell NEVER

lol ive had it off people in the street,we bought the dog when my son was afew months old,so the dogs came into his house not the other way round,you can have probs if a baby comes along after the dogs lived there for years but most people dont,if your dogs good natured it wont bother a babys came into the house,some people are so ignorant and believe the shite they see on TV

sure is mate ,the nice little westie that sits on grandmas knee while she drinks a cup of tea and eats biscuits,then rips the postmans hand off.from what the breeder told me about bull terriers is that because they originated as a fighting dog they are aware of there superior strength and power and do not need to bark and attack other dogs to prove it,they know its there for when they need it,its insecure unstable dogs that constantly need to assert there aggressiveness

i used to have an English bull and it was deaf. He was as good as gold but if he was asleep and you walked in the room you had to throw something in front of him to wake him up so he did'nt get a shock as he was so protective of us and the kids. Someone broke in once and when we got home apparrently he'd has this guy pinned in a corner of the bedroom for nearly 3 hours, he had'nt bitten him or anything just would'nt let him leave.The idiot had been shouting and screaming at the dog not realising it was deaf and only understood hand movements as commands.When the police came they were p*****g themselves laughing.

Not always little yappy shits lol. My neighbour has the most gorgeous staff who was brought up in a junk yard, so he hasnt had the best start in life. He was trained to obviously be a guard dog, and as such doesnt like other dogs...at all. But with a couple of years of being treated right and getting used to other dogs, he finally started to be ok around them...Untill a couple of weeks ago he got attacked by a German Shepard who was off the lead. My neighbour always walks the staff on a really strong harness, made by a saddler, and on a really strong leash, but its when the owners that dont have enough sense to actually put leashes on their dogs that things like that happen. The German Shepard mentioned above actually hospitalised a little Jack Russell that belonged to a little old lady. Do you think the owner would pay the bill?? Dont think so, but when my neighbour, an agressive MAN went and demanded the bill for his staffy...He coughed up straight away...F*cking barsteward...Some people just dont know how to be good owners.

And for th record...I love English Bull Terriers :lol: Such dopey looking dogs, but gorgeous :lol:
