theHistory

Training &Temperament

“They’re like a 3-year-old child in a clown suit!” say Mini owners. If ever a breed could claim the title “Clown Prince of Dogdom,” it’s the Mini. Minis are famous for their comic antics and zest for life. They’re so funny, so adorable, so clever that owners sometimes ignore indiscretions that would land other dogs in the doghouse. This is a mistake. To get the most out of life with Minis, they must be trained firmly but patiently, boundaries must be set, and socialization should begin in early puppyhood.

Did You Know?

There used to be three types of Bull Terrier: Toy, Miniature, and Standard. The toy dog, however, fell out of favor and there are now only Miniature and Standard size Bull Terriers.

The Miniature Bull Terrier originated in England.

The Miniature Bull Terrier was accepted in Miscellaneous Class in 1963 and accepted as a breed in 1991.

The Miniature Bull Terrier is AKC's 133rd breed.

In early 19th century the Bulldog & now the extinct White English Terrier were interbred to produce the "Bull and Terrier" later known as the Bull Terrier.

These dogs have a high activity level, they are smart and creative, indeed they are independent thinkers.
