Mixing Bull Terrier Puppy with 2 Adult Cats

At the moment we have 2 cats as pets. My hubby wants to get a bull terrier puppy at the end of the month. I am just a bit concerned as I believe that Bull terriers generally don' t get along with cats and see them as prey. Please advise

If you get a puppy the cats will short him out in no time.

I have a bull terrier and 3 cats and have absolutely no problems. In fact, the cats boss the bull terrier around. Contrary to popular belief, bull terriers have an excellent temperament which rate even better than a daschund :o) Just give puppy lot' s of love and attention to avoide " seperation anxiety"  mentality.

we had bully' s when we were kids and we also had a cat, and she ruled that roost. if the cats were there first and you support the cat' s when they discipline the puppy instead of punishing them it should be fine. One swipe from a cat should be sufficient warning for your new pup.

Bullterriers can be problematic, however if the pup you are getting is from good breeders and you train him properly from the start you will be fine.

We had a bully that loved the cats:)

You can also ask the breeder to check the temprements of the pups as the prey drive differs from pup to pup.
