Trivia: 
The Birmingham fighting dog breeder, James Hinks crossed the existing Bull-and-Terrier with the White English Terrier, which has since died out as a breed. After many years of careful experimentation, he managed to create a new white coated Bull-and-terrier breed, which was smaller and more elegant, which he named the Bull Terrier.
