The Miniature Bull Terrier gets his name honestly; he’s stubborn to the end. They are a dog breed that is very devoted and attached to their families, playful and energetic but also very sweet and affectionate. They are not happy to be left alone, and they can be overly excited around young children. They may not get along well with other dogs or animals and require sufficient exercise so that they do not become destructive in the home.
The Miniature Bull Terrier require obedience training to help cope with their stubborn and mischievous nature. They have a muscular build, and very strong jaws, both of which give him his tough appearance.
Be sure to give your Miniature Bull Terrier a good work out every day either in the form of a good walk or play time in the yard. He’s not happy unless he’s close to his family so he should be allowed to live indoors.
His coat only requires an occasional brushing.
Originating in the 1800s, the Miniature Bull Terrier was bred from the Old English terrier and a bulldog, and later a Spanish pointer, resulting in a breed that was ideal for bull baiting and dog fighting. Once dog fighting was outlawed, the Bull Terrier began to be recognized as a show dog, and further breeding produced an all-white dog.
Some of these toy Bull Terriers were as small as 4 pounds, but the smaller ones were not favored and soon it was the Miniatures that became more popular. In 1991 the AKC recognized the Miniature Bull Terrier dog breed, 55 years after the standard size.
