Miniature Bull Terrier

Tags: terrier, Small-sized, High energy level, Adaptable to apartment life, Kid-friendly, Protective guardian

Once upon a time, when Bull Terriers were developed (crossing the Bulldog with White English Terriers) in England in the early 1800s, we all were all "miniature" size (typically 10-14 inches at the shoulder). Then, to make a bigger fighting dog, the Spanish Pointer was brought into the mix. Termed the Miniature Bull Terrier, we were admitted to the AKC's Terrier Group in 1991.

Rave review

  • Adaptable to apartment life -- with appropriate exercise
  • Affectionate, devoted family friend
  • Agile and active
  • Always alert
  • Happy-go-lucky clown
  • Courageous canine
  • Energizer doggie
  • Even-tempered, good-natured

Report card

  • Intelligent and ready to learn
  • Loves kids and vice versa
  • Outgoing extrovert
  • Perfect protector
  • Playful pal
  • Pleased to please
  • Ready to romp
  • Socialization and training should start early
  • Sweet disposition
  • Training should be firm but gentle, patient and consistent

What to expect

I need you to watch me while romping with small children. I'd never hurt them intentionally -- I love kids too much to do that -- but don't let me get carried away. Please train me to be careful -- "easy" is a command I can learn easily -- however I can't promise the same with small pets like hamsters and guinea pigs. Rodent hunting is in my genes and probably can't be cured. Now, if we understand each other -- bring on the kids!

Watch for

Possible deafness, skin conditions, and lameness.
