The role of the Gull Terr as a fighting dog is fortunately diminishing, which is an advantage for this breed. But unfortunately, they are still used for fighting in many parts of the Panjab. Initially, this dog was bred as a Bully Kutta replacement in the role of guard dog since these are huge next to a Gull Terr and the costs of maintaining a large dog. Thus, Gull Terr were bred as guard dogs and Bully Kutta were mainly used in dog fighting due to their great popularity as high-strength dogs. In addition, some people raise the Gull Terr for fighting, but this dog has proven to be more of a guard dog than a fighting dog. The original Gull Terr is now a rare breed, and some people cross it with local breeds such as the Gull Dong and Bully Kutta. Nowadays, pure Gull Terrs are increasingly rare, with a few families having owned them for almost a century. Some people advertise this as a fighting dog, but its temperament has proven that it can be a great companion dog before participating in dog fights are not only inhumane, but have also been banned in Pakistan. Fortunately, the Gull Terr's role as a fighting dog is diminishing and now people are raising them as pets. Gull Terrs need proper training and an appropriate owner, as they are notorious for biting. In addition, care must be taken when introducing these dogs to small kennels, as they are sometimes aggressive with anyone invading their territory.

The Pakistani Gull Terr should not be confused with the Gull Dong, which is a separate breed. Athletic and tenacious, the Gull Terr is kept as a pet and guard dog. The most valuable specimens come from the Pakistani regions of Kohat and Punjab, but the original race is increasingly rare and should be taken for half conservation.

The Gull Terr or Pakistani bull terrier is a rare breed of dog found mainly in Pakistan and the Indian Punjab. The Gull Terr has recently been named Pokhatis by villagers in Punjab due to its origins in both Punjab and areas of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa regions (particularly in the Kojat regions), so that the P comes from Punjab and Kohati from Kohat, for which they are called Pokhatis. It was created from the old bull terrier, which died, and Kutta. Today, breeders are generally found in rural Pakistan and parts of the Indian Punjab. Although originally classified as a small version of Bully Kutta for fighting, this dog has earned its place in homes due to their natural affection and ease of training, gradually becoming popular as a pet and guard dog. Since dog fighting was banned in India and Pakistan, these dogs are now bred for domestic use.

The Gull Terr is a medium-sized dog. It still has some broad, straight features. Dropped ears are a sign of crossbreeding. Its short coat is white, with a few black dots inherited from the original Bully Kutta line from which it derives. There are colored dogs, but they are very rare or are generally the result of crosses with other breeds. Their size varies according to their specific type, but their average height ranges from 45.7 cm to 66 cm, and they weigh between 40 and 45 kg. The Gull Terr always has straight ears without surgery. When they reach maturity at 2 years of age, they generally become large. They therefore need at least an hour's training every day.

The Gull Terr's coat is always white with a few black patches, but without adding any other color apart from its small black spots.

The Gull Terr has always had erect ears. These are large and characteristic of the breed. Folded ears are not a Gull Terr. These dogs do not have cropped ears. Some people clip the ears of dogs crossed with the Gull Terr and pass them off as such.

Although much easier to train than a Bully Kutta or Gull Dong, this is an aggressive breed, more suited to owners with plenty of experience. Muscular and agile, the Gull Terr is a powerful working breed with exceptional fighting skills and a guardian instinct. Gull Terrs are very loyal to their master and will protect their environment. The owners' family will always consider their owner's family to be their pack, and even if a cat is bred with them, they will consider the cat to be part of the pack and will defend it too.
