There is a great variety in appearance standards among Bull Arabs, due to the individual breeder\'s ideas of what a perfect dog should be. It is common to find dogs that are short, stocky and wide-headed, as well as taller dogs with leaner bodies and narrow heads. Regardless of type, Bull Arabs are tireless workers and impressive hunters. Some degree of dog-aggression is found in certain bloodlines, but most dogs are said to possess sound temperaments and agreeable personalities.
Their powerful bodies are well-muscled and have short smooth hair, always white with darker patches of various sizes, usually brown, black, brindle, fawn and yellow, although non-traditional colours such as black, liver and blue can sometimes be encountered, but their ancestry is questioned by the majority of breed fanciers. Average height is around 20 inches, but taller dogs exist.
