The Miniature Bull Terrier dog was originally came from England, and is a member of the Terrier family. It was developed using selective breeding to miniaturize the Bull Terrier.
It has a very strong build, muscular shoulders, and egg-shaped head. The eyes are triangular and closely set, the ears are carried erect and are not cropped or otherwise altered. It has a short, tapered tail.
Miniature Bull Terrier dogs have been in existence for a long time. Some were reported to weigh as little as 4 pounds. One of the first groups of smaller "toy" Bull Terriers were white in color and referred to as "Coverwood Terriers". This name was a reflection of the kennel that produce them.
In time, a better and more healthier group of small Bull Terriers were created. Their size was somewhat larger than the toy version and so became known as "miniatures". These Miniature Bull Terriers were bred and their popularity rose to such a point that the English Kennel Club recognized the breed in 1939. Later the breed was recognized by the AKC in 1991.
Even though Miniature Bull Terriers are smaller in size, they still maintain the standard-sized Bull Terrier traits and characters, which are known to be rough, playful, stubborn and courageous. They don't seem to realize their size, and dare to confront other dogs. However, with the right training, confrontations can be avoided.
Miniature Bull Terrier dogs are very energetic and playful. They love people, but often don't get along with other pets. They need to be supervised around children. Miniatures do require a lot of training, particularly early on. They must be heavily socialized and trained to obey early in their lives.
Playtime in the yard and a few walks will provide plenty of exercise for this dog. They also make excellent pets for small apartments or condominiums, as well as in rural homes. Miniature Bull Terriers require little grooming. A quick brushing once a day or a few times a week is sufficient to keep the fur in order, as it cannot become tangled due to its length.
