Bibliography and Notes

From the author of The Bull Terrier Handbook, for Type, Conformation and Movement, now comes a ground breaking history of the Bull Terrier.

The early history of the Bull Terrier is plagued by unanswered questions, dead ends and fables disguised as fact.  

 

The author sets out, digging deep into archive sources to unearth historic nuggets,  providing breed enthusiasts with verifiable answers to some of those questions for the first time :

 

•  Was Old Madman really shown at Birmingham in December 1860 ?

 

•  Did the Puss fight take place at Tupper’s well known rendezvous in Long Acre or, was Long Acre really too prestigious an area for such a venue ?

 

•   What led to James Hinks withdrawing from the shown scene in 1870 ?

 

•  What brought him back to show again ?

Verifiable answers to these age old questions are revealed, together with many more.
