The Bull Arab is an Australian dog purpose-bred primarily as a finder and lugger for wild boar hunting. They are also used for catching wild scrub bulls in outback Australia. They are generally[which?] a loyal dog. They were bred with the need to create a dog with enough size to stop large boars but with enough speed and stamina to outlast many of the other heavier mastiffs. The Bull Arab is not yet a registry-recognised breed of dog in Australia, though there are those that are working towards getting it recognized as such.
