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, 

back in the day at trials, for every good Bull Terrier or bull terrier mix , there was 20 good or better SBTs,, the majority of good dogs at trials was either Wheatens or SBTs, Bull terriers ware a rarity

I think that’s a different ball game to be honest mate nothing against the trials but six minutes at a badger and finding catching and holding a 100 kilo pig 3 times in a row is not the same

Do you think the trials were harder than pig hunting?   Or vice versa. I know nowt of either but find it interesting that dogs failed regular at trials but then the same breed makes awsome pig dogs, would love to know how a dog thought 😁

I think you will find more dogs that will tackle a boar than you would that would meet a badger face to face.

I don’t know what would be harder for the dog as I haven’t been to the trials my point was it’s different also I’m pretty sure the EBT of today is of a better standard than most I’ve seen at the trials

well .all I was saying the bull terriers in general ware not good enough ( game enough )  for trials ,, Iam sure size comes into it with Boar hunting , I doubt Bull terriers are any better than Dogos , American Bulldogs , or Pit bulls or bull lurchers at boar hunting , never seen any post a video of one on one, its usually 3-4 dogs on the boar

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

Its a bit like baking a cake the ingredients on their own uncooked taste like shit but when mixed and cooked its a total different story I think the reason EB works in terrier mixes is down to the fact they lack gameness and makes for a steadier terrier,thats what I think but no one really knows.

I have no hands on experience with trials or ebt.I have seen a variety of different breeds work coyote otter and hog.In my opinion it's different styles and very few will tolerate the punishment from  all of them.The first lurcher I seen was from England and could kill coyotes impressively.When tried on a 100lb hog he received a small puncture in the shoulder let go and went and sat down by his owner.The Englishman had a good laugh and renamed the dog pinky😂

The first otter I ever encountered was with my father and a good jag bitch he had hog hunted for years.She had never cried from hogcut.When an otter pinched her on the nose she shit herself and squealed.In my opinion there's a big difference between getting cut with a pocketknife and having a beartrap clamp down on your nose.Theres 3 spots that a "good"dog will cry or quit from getting bit is the nose,toes and inside the ear.A 15 lb American otter will cull more dogs for you than 150lb boar.Just my opinion from what I've seen.Sorry back on topic
