CERTIFIED MINI-BULL TERRIER AUTHORITIES
The Miniature Bull Terrier's egg-shaped head would amuse a burglar but he's a good little watchdog because when he barks, a guest has arrived! No one knows the Mini-Bull better than our Certified Breed Representatives who describe his unique qualities, character, and personality.

Certified Miniature Bull Representative: John & Laurel "Lollie" Dalire
The Miniature Bull Terrier is the Comic of all Comics. When you least expect it they will have you rolling with laughter from their antics. Mini-Bulls seem to have the uncanny ability to know when you are having a bad day and will act accordingly. If you just want to hang out, the Mini-Bull Terrier is the best-ever couch potato, easy and clean, a wash and wear type of dog. They are happy to get along with all, including children, other dogs, and in my household, they even get along with the cats. The Miniature Bull wants to go everywhere you do, has energy and cleverness to entertain the children, common-sense to share with teenagers, and is the ultimate companion for adults of any age. The Mini-Bull is like an understanding, entertaining, whimsical “person” trapped in a comical little dog’s body.

Physically the Mini is the same as the Standard – a bundle of bulging muscle and vibrant good humor stuffed into a sleek tight fitting coat that comes in solid white or brindle, black, red and pastels of each. He has no cape but is a 30 pound Superdog that can leap over tall buildings in a single “sprong” or failing that, he just crashes through them! The Miniature Bull Terrier positively adores kids ands expects to sleep with them. He is patient and kind with other small animals but he is a terrier and is the original size pub and back alley Gladiator, so he should spark if challenged. Girls get along wonderfully together but the boys, well, they get along with girls and people. The Mini is a clown, a push-button dog that will sleep for days as long as he’s close to his person, and then play for hours when you are ready. Like all breeds, he has his Achilles’ Heel so you must inquire about heart and eye defects and if buying for show, buy only from a breeder of long standing and knowledge.

Bo’s mom is our English Import, Multi-Group Placer and Regional Specialty BOS, Ch. “Mivvy.” Bodacious finished undefeated including Regional Specialty BW and National Specialty Best In Sweeps but most of all, he is Bill’s best buddy.
ShowDogs O'BJ love to help new breeds win AKC recognition and hearts. Bill (now deceased) and "BJ" Andrews championed many new breeds but felt the Mini-Bull was most deserving. Author of The Miniature Bull Terrier breed book, she is www.ToyFoxTerriersOBJ.com Phone: (828) 286-9944 from 2 – 8 P.M. EST
