Fun Facts- History:
 The breed derives from “Dalmatian, Greyhound, Spanish Pointer, Foxhound and Whippet to
increase elegance and agility; and Borzoi and Collie to reduce the stop. Hinks*** wanted his dogs
white, and bred specifically for this. Generally, however, breeding was aimed at increasing
sturdiness: three "subtypes" were recognized by judges, Bulldog, Terrier and Dalmatian, each
with its specific conformation, and a balance is now sought between the three. The first modern
Bull Terrier is now recognized as "Lord Gladiator", from 1917, being the first dog with no stop at
all.”
          ***Hinks-“About 1850, James Hinks started breeding "Bull and Terriers" with "English
White Terriers" (now extinct), looking for a cleaner appearance with better legs and nicer head. In
1862, Hinks entered a bitch called "Puss" sired by his white Bulldog called "Madman" into the Bull
Terrier Class at the dog show held at the Cremorne Gardens in Chelsea. Originally known as the
"Hinks Breed" and "The White Cavalier", these dogs did not yet have the now-familiar "egg face",
but kept the stop in the skull profile.”
