Just like any large Molosser in Pakistan is referred to as a BULLY KUTTA, most small to medium sized Bull & Terrier breeds are referred to as GULL TERRIERS. We have three types of Gull Terrier in Pakistan i will discuss each type of Gull Terrier in more depth on this page.
PURE GULL TERRIER
Hidden away in Pakistan we have the original Hinks English Bull Terrier that have very little resemblance to the current show bred Bull Terriers of the World today. In Pakistan we call these dogs Gull Terriers they are totally identical to the Bull Terrier of old, their blood lines date back from the time of the British Raj. As i said on my home page the British Raj brought over with them their Terriers & Bull terriers these dogs were bred for Bear Baiting & other sporting events & they still are bred as functional working dogs today in Pakistan therefore they have been preserved in their original form. One of the main characteristics of the pure Gull Terrier is the erect ears and pure white coat if the ears are not erect they are more likely not the pure type Gull Terrier you will never see a Gull Terrier with a Roman head, alot of the sporting pure Gull Terriers of Pakistan are also deaf. The height of these Gull Terrier ranges from 21-24" & 55-70lbs they have an extremly smooth harsh thick coat well almost twice as thick as the current show Bull Terrers of the World this coat comes in their aid in certain sporting events they take part in. I personally believe in Pakistan we have the original Bull Terrier & White English Terriers these dogs are alive & well in Pakistan they are famous in the Punjab & Kohat area of Pakistan.

Typical Type Gull Terrier
The typical type Gull Terrier is the more common type of Gull Terrier you will see in Pakistan, unlike the pure Gull Terrier they come in all colors they on average seem to be afew inches taller and about 6-10 Kg heavier than the pure Gull Terriers. They also seem to be built more like the American Bull Terriers they have broader head and jaws when compared to the pure Gull Terriers. Also their ears are very rarely erect there are cropped most of the time, the history of this Gull Terrier is very similar to the pure Gull Terriers but they seem to have more Bulldog and less Terrier Influence they most definitely breed true to type and are excellent working dogs.
