Miniature Bull Terrier
The Miniature Bull Terrier was developed in England in the early 1800s, descending from the English Bulldog and the now-extinct White English Terrier. The Miniature Bull Terrier is basically a small version of the Bull Terrier. They are known for their large egg-shaped head and their tendency to groan when vocalizing. They have a lot of energy and can be feisty and tenacious, but they are a loving and dedicated dog to their family. They were originally used as competitive ratters in gambling pits and later became watch dogs and beloved family pets. They are famous for their “Bully Runs” in which they run through the house or the yard for no apparent reason.
