Miniature Bull Terrier Grooming and Breed Care

Miniature Bull Terrier Temperament

Determined, bold, and spirited, the Miniature Bull Terrier is an active and energetic dog with a stable temperament. These Dogs can be amusing and entertaining, and they thrive on the attention and affection of their loved ones - a neglected Miniature Bull Terrier can become very destructive, so this is not a breed that is suited to those with little time to dedicate to a pet. The Miniature Bull Terrier is a good family pet, but does have certain traits that make him better suited to those with some experience of dog ownership and training. You need to be confident, assertive, yet positive in order to enjoy success with this breed, as training can be difficult. Some Miniature Bull Terriers may be overly aggressive or timid; some can be dominant, bossy, and possessive; and some can be very challenging.

 

Early socialization is essential in order to promote a stable and even temperament in this breed. These Dogs need plenty of attention and exercise too, and will enjoy getting involved in family activities as well as enjoying daily walks. The Miniature Bull Terrier gets along well with most pets, but may be dangerous around cats, which means that you should socialize this breed very early to cats. These Dogs will get along fine with considerate and gentle children, and many will welcome strangers. The protection level of the Miniature Bull Terrier is fairly low, although some may bark to raise an alarm if something is amiss.

Miniature Bull Terrier Appearance

The Miniature Bull Terrier is a small, well built, and sturdy dog, but is not the most handsome of creatures in many people's eyes. This is a distinctive looking dog with an oval, sloping muzzle, and small eyes. The coat of the Miniature Bull Terrier is short, sleek, and close fitting, and the coloring can vary, including black and tan, brindle, fawn, and red, usually with white markings. The weight of the Miniature Bull Terrier is around 16-35 pounds, and the height is 10-13 inches for females, and 13-15 inches for males.

Miniature Bull Terrier Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Miniature Bull Terrier are low, and an occasional brushing and wipe down with a damp cloth will help to keep the coat sleek and in good condition. This breed is an average shedder and may not be best suited to those with severe allergies.

Miniature Bull Terrier Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Miniature Bull Terrier is around 11-14 years. There are a number of health problems associated with the breed, and this includes heart problems, kidney problems, paralysis of the larynx, luxating patella, eye problems, seizures, thyroid disorders, skin problems, and allergies. The parents of the Miniature Bull Terrier puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates. You should also ensure that your puppy has a BAER certificate, and ask about heart and kidney testing.

Miniature Bull Terrier History

The Miniature Bull Terrier originates from Great Britain, and is simply a smaller version of the standard Bull Terrier.
