Miniature Bull Terrier

Miniature Bull Terrier Books

Group: Terrier - Breed Standard

Origins

The Bull Terrier (Miniature) is a breed of dog developed using selective breeding to miniaturize the Bull Terrier.

In the early 1900s, the difference between the breeds was determined by the dog's weight. However, this led to Miniature Bull Terriers becoming so small and fine that they looked more like a Chihuahua than a Bull Terrier. So, in the 1970s, the weight limit was replaced with a height limit of under fourteen inches.

Description

Height should not exceed 35.5 cms (14ins). There should be an impression of substance to size of dog. There is no weight limit. Dog should at all times be balanced

Character/Temperament

Like the larger Bull Terriers, Minis are loving and, like many terrier breeds, can be stubborn at times; but despite this they make great dogs for people with limited space.
