This dog is a smaller replica of the Bull Terrier and shares the same breed standard apart from height. Bull Terriers weighing as little as l0 lb (4.5kg) were recorded early in the breed's history, but it was not until 1939 that the Miniature was given a separate breed register by the Kennel Club in Britain. It has never been very popular and few specimens are seen in the show ring. This loving and companionable little dog has the same characteristics as its larger relative, making an excellent pet and being generally good with children. It requires daily brushing and plenty of exercise.
