The Bull Arab is a large, strong, and powerful breed of dog that originated in Australia. It is a cross between the Bull Terrier and the Australian Staghound. The Bull Arab has a muscular body with a broad chest and strong legs. Its head is large with a wide muzzle and small ears that are set high on its head. The coat of the Bull Arab can be short or long, but it is usually short and smooth. It comes in many colors including black, white, brown, red, blue, fawn, brindle, or any combination of these colors.

The lifespan of the Bull Arab is typically between 10 to 12 years when properly cared for. They can reach up to 24 inches in height at the shoulder and weigh up to 80 pounds when fully grown.

The personality of the Bull Arab is loyal and protective towards its family members but can be aggressive towards strangers if not properly socialized from an early age. They are intelligent dogs that need plenty of mental stimulation to stay happy and healthy.

Bull Arabs are friendly with other dogs as long as they have been properly socialized from an early age; however they may be aggressive towards other animals such as cats if not trained correctly from puppyhood onwards. They are also very friendly with children when raised around them from an early age; however they should always be supervised due to their size and strength which could cause injury if not handled correctly by children who do not understand how to interact safely with them yet.

The temperament of the Bull Arab is alert yet gentle; they make great watchdogs due to their alertness but also make great family pets due to their gentle nature around those they know well such as family members or close friends who visit often enough for them to become familiar with them over time too!

The health of the Bull Arab should always be monitored closely by its owner; regular vet check-ups should take place every 6 months or so in order for any potential health issues such as hip dysplasia or eye problems (which this breed can suffer from) can be identified quickly before becoming more serious issues later on down the line!

The adaptability level of this breed is quite high; they do well living both indoors or outdoors depending on what suits your lifestyle best! As long as you provide plenty of exercise (both physical & mental) then your pet will thrive no matter where it lives! Some benefits associated with owning one include: being loyal & protective companions who love spending time outdoors playing fetch & going for walks/runs - plus they’re great watchdogs too!


The Bull Arab is a large, athletic dog breed that was developed in Australia in the 1970s. The breed was created by crossing the Bullmastiff with the Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog, and later with the Greyhound. The resulting dogs were used for hunting wild boar and other game animals.

The Bull Arab almost became extinct in the early 2000s due to a lack of interest from hunters. However, the breed has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years due to its unique appearance and hunting abilities.

The Bull Arab is recognized as a breed by the United Kennel Club and the Australian National Kennel Council. The breed is also recognized by several other kennel clubs around the world.
