History

History

The Miniature Bull Terrier originated in the age of bull-baiting and dog-fighting in the 1800s. A cross between the Bulldog and the now extinct English White Terrier, these strong and fierce dogs came in all sizes from 3 lb to 50 lb. In 1835, blood sports were banned in England and breeders sought to redefine the breed, making it a tractable family pet. While the tiniest examples of the breed eventually died out, both the full sized and Miniature Bull Terrier were welcomed into the home. For a long time, Miniature Bull Terriers remained a “type” of Bull Terrier, but in 1991 they were recognized as a distinct breed.

Personality

Energetic and full of childlike curiosity, the Miniature Bull Terrier requires lots of exercise and stimulation. He loves his family and is protective in nature. Consistent training and good socialization will keep him from becoming jealous or overprotective of his people or things. While he will adjust to most types of family situation, he needs to keep active and wants to be a part of everything.
