Miniature Bull Terrier



Our dogs will love and admire the meanest of us, and feed our colossal vanity with their uncritical homage.

Once bred for the now-illegal sports of bull-baiting and dog-fighting, the Bull Terrier was also used to control vermin. 

Known in Britain for his courage and tenacity, the Miniature Bull Terrier was first documented in 1872.  Originally, Bull Terriers came in a wide variety of sizes but by the late nineteenth century the Miniature Bull Terrier was established as identical to the standard Bull Terrier in every respect but size. 

Possessing the uniquely-shaped face of his larger cousin, the Miniature Bull Terrier is strong and agile, and stands up to 14 inches at the shoulder. His overall shape appears square. His coat is short, smooth and may be any colour including pure white. 

The Miniature Bull Terrier is an outgoing animal with a fearless, courageous, and determined personality. Since he has a dominant nature, he may not be the dog for the inexperienced dog owner, and he may not get along with other pets. He develops a very strong bond with his family and displays strong protective and possessive behaviours. As a consequence, he is often used as an effective watch and guard dog. 

As with most terriers, he will not back down from a confrontation regardless of the size of the other dog. He has a high pain tolerance and is a tenacious fighter, and so must be placed in early training. Patience is the key to training as this dog possesses an independent, willful, and stubborn nature! The Miniature Bull Terrier requires exercise as he is exuberant and energetic who may become destructive if bored or cooped up. Because of his personality, he should always be leashed when in public. He does best with a fenced backyard and plenty of opportunity to be active.

Did you know?

Patsy Ann, a stray deaf Bull Terrier in Juneau, Alaska was dubbed the town's "Official Greeter" by the mayor. 

Patsy Ann knew when 
boats were about to arrive, and she ran along the wharf to welcome them. To this day a statue of Patsy Ann, who died in 1942, sits waiting for the ships to arrive in Juneau.
