heres a couple of pics, too many, sorry. i owned the brindle bitch. The white dog is my brothers, thunder rock bred and everything a bullie shod be. Both were 100% driven and capable. I know the breed

Posted this before in another section i know, but here's an e.b.t. x i owned close to thirty years ago now...an absolute b*****d of a dog. I've been around all of the bull and terrier types over the y

Without wishing to offend..........why would somebody called " working bull and terrier " be so bothered about " a straighter profile " and importing one " that looks like those " and be calling dogs

I came across this today when looking through some old mags. Off topic of the thread and of historical interest only of course but maybe of interest in regard to the bull types being used in fairly recent years in a working capacity? The breed listed as Bull Terrier I assume to be EBT. Not many listed. Interesting to me are the breeds listed in the "sounder" column. Nothing described as a Patterdale.  Not saying that Patterdales were not being used for proper work in the field at that time in Ireland though and the name itself was probably not in common use at that time in the UK or the Republic.

Dont think the black dogs made an apearance in Ireland till the late 80s even then and into the 90s russels and borders were the terriers being used thats what was around here anyway in the midlands.

Always intrigues me how them aussie bullies seem ok with other dogs . Then again they are usually ball deep into a pig

Like a lot of pig dogs,ok when out hunting but need to be separated once back home,that's why I always preferred staghounds or bullarabs that get along most of the time.

Do you keep EBT crossed animals aussie . Seem popular down there 👍

No I only ferret these days with the whippets and terrier but the English bull cross staghound is one of the most used dogs on pigs here.The English bull terries have always been more popular as crosses for pigs than pits as they don't try and fight the boars and get into trouble.I've heard of a few pure pits being drowned by big pigs also.
