Golitha is a small-scale family show kennel located in North Lincolnshire. Our goal is to produce quality dogs that are as near to the breed standard as we can possibly get; dogs that are happy, healthy and well-adjusted. Temperament and health are paramount in our breeding because ultimately any dog, even a show dog's most important role is being a loved member of the family.

My first dog was a Bull Terrier a son of Ch Ghabar Crusader and my first Bull Terrier bitch was a Ch Aricon Eye Spy daughter.

Give them an inch and they’ll take a mile, however, they will give you absolute & unconditional love and total loyalty in exchange for a place on the settee and an old shoe to chew on, well actually it doesn’t have to be old, they’re just as happy with a new one, even if you’re not; but you’ve just got to love them warts and all, regardless of their antics!

The Golitha show dogs are owned by Steve & Stephanie Paterson and the affix 'Golitha' is named after the breathtaking Golitha Falls situated on the River Fowey in Cornwall where Steve spent many a tranquil walk with his Bullies.
