Miniature Bull Terrier

Miniature Bull Terrier (Terrier Group)

The Miniature Bull Terrier is in every way – except size – exactly like the Bull Terrier. Bull Terriers were first meant to be rough, tough fighting dogs but now exhibit a much gentler, playful personality. As a matter of fact, the jovial nature and the distinctive egg-shaped head of the Bull Terrier made it an apt choice for Target ads and Anhauser Busch’s popular “Spuds McKenzie” ad campaign. The breed can be solid white or colored.

A Look Back

When created in the early part of the nineteenth century from crossing a Bulldog with the now-extinct White English Terrier, Bull Terriers as small as the present day Miniature were common if not the rule. Early in the Bull Terrier’s history, breeders thought he wasn’t big enough, so they added some Spanish Pointer to the breed. Because of the variety in sizes that resulted, breeders began to separate the Bull Terriers into groups: Miniature (midsize), and Standard (the largest).

Temperament

The temperament should be full of fire and courageous, but even and amenable to discipline. (AKC)
