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

The strange thing was, even though the E/B weren't as good as their staffy cousins, when diluted in to terriers and other forms of strong dog, they produced hard driven workers most of the time, 

Was that a case of them turning out decent despite using Bull Terrier though or because of it?

That's an interesting point but proof is in the pudding here with English bulls being superior as crosses with staghounds for pigs compared to staff or pit crosses.

It deffo added to the x, it was an immensely popular x for years, long before any black dogs turned up here, and still a few being created to this day

In what way are they better than Pit or Staff crosses? 

Maybe it's just a case of there being more established lines with heavy Bull Terrier influence?

My mrs was a professional pig catcher(she caught me) and ran a chiller here.English bulls crossed with almost any breed worked the pigs by lugging,not damaging meat and not trying to fight boars as pits do which could be fatal.The bull cross stags can even be first crosses or line bred but still have the no nonsense ear lugging qualities.Staff crosses are ok but not as good and a little on the small side for this.
