Almost flat upper skull from ear to ear.
Well rounded with clearly sprung ribs, from withers to brisket. The chest is closer to the ground than the belly.

Small, thin and close together. The dog should be able to hold them erect when carried vertically.
Short, set low, carried horizontally.
Short, flat, even and harsh to the touch with a fine sheen. A soft undercoat may appear in winter.
Strongly built, muscular, well balanced and active, Bull Terriers have a lively, determined and intelligent expression. Their down-faced egg-shaped head is truly unique. Males and females are clearly different.In action, Bull Terriers look well knit, moving with free and easy, regular strides, with a characteristic nimbleness.The standard does not impose any weight and height limits, save for the miniature variety, which must not exceed 14 inches, but Bull Terriers must always give the impression of being substantial, with due consideration for the quality and sex of the specimen.
