Miniature Bull Terrier


This little fellow is sturdy, muscular, active, intelligent and tenacious, yet good tempered. In looks and coloring, it’s a scaled-down version of the full-sized Bull Terrier. This breed dates to the early 19th century when the Bulldog and the now extinct White English Terrier were interbred to produce the Bull and Terrier, later known as the Bull Terrier. Early Bull Terriers exhibited a range of sizes, from 4 to 16 pounds. The American Kennel Club standard now calls for a height of 10 to 14 inches at the shoulder, with weight in proportion to height. The short, flat coat needs only a weekly brushing to give it a fine gloss. Miniature Bull Terriers are just right for apartment dwellers who can deal with their high activity level. They are fine with children and make good watchdogs.
