The miniature bull terrier developed in England.
Date Of Origin
This breed originated in the 1800's, however, there was no distinction between the bull terriers until 1913.
The development of the bull terrier began about 200 years ago in England when the bulldog and white English terrier were crossed to create a breed then known as the bull terrier. Some breed experts believe that the black and tan terrier was also an ancestor, as was the Spanish pointer.
The miniature bull terrier is a small, strong, and well muscled dog. It has a short, tight fitting coat and the egg shaped, bull terrier head, with small, sunken, dark eyes; a dark nose; and small erect ears. It has a short, low set, tapered tail. The mini comes in a variety of colors.
The miniature bull terrier is extremely social and outgoing. It is a cheerful dog that is stable amenable, fearless and fun loving. It is very attached to its human companions. It does well with children and other animals if well socialized.
This breed worked primarily as a ratter. Its lovable personality also makes it an excellent companion.
This dog can adapt to city, suburban, or rural life easily.
