Blue Paul Terrier
Blue Paul Terrier is an extinct breed of dog. Despite the dogs being the powerful one’s, yet could not show up their presence in the 20th century, this was majorly because the dogs were breed selectively only in the United States and in European countries.
The full knowledge about these dogs, i.e. their origin, how they bred and history about them is with no one but there is a story about them which is narrates that John Paul Jones, a Scottish born American sailor, brought the dogs from abroad and landed some when he visited his local town of Kirkcudbright which is about 1770 but here they suffered punishment as they faced death. They were specialist and tactful in their fighting tactics, which made them great favourites with those who were indulged in this sport. They informed that the breed initially came from the Galloway coast, which lends assistance to the Paul Jones legend. The dogs to arrive in the United States with the English immigrants in the mid-19th century were the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
The Blue Paul Terrier is a powerfully built breed with smooth coat. The dog weighs about 15 kg and is approximately 50 cm tall. It had a large head with which it possessed a flat forehead and a short muzzle. Its jaws and teeth were not even with pendant flews. They had a minor dip in mid of the eyes, which were gloomy hazel and not sunken, nor showing the haw. They had thin and small ears which are invariably cropped and set on high. Their eyebrows were contracted or knit. They had no wrinkles on their face and the facial expressions of the Blue Paul has never been seen in any other breed and can frequently be renowned in mixed-breed dogs. The body of the breed was round and well ribbed with short and broad back, they were muscular and had deep and wide chest. The tail was set low and devoid of fringe, rather drooping and never rising above the back. The dog had straight and firm legs. Its forelegs were muscular and stout with no curve. The hind legs were very strong and thick, with well-developed muscles.
The dog was mainly used for fighting, as most dogs that shared these bodily characteristics. The hound was always adapted its skills and was motivated to fight to the death. The strength and pliability continued to grow until its death. This sport was very common and widely recognised in the world.
These dogs were obviously aggressive, robust and smart. Both possess great characteristics for those indulged in the game. The breed was used severely for defence and fighting. Their personality traits reflected that they were a protective, aggressive breed with little anxiety for its own security. Most importantly it had a strong readiness to satisfy its owners and do what was demanded.
