Miniature bull terriers are a small to medium sized dog that weigh up to approximately thirty-three pounds and stand anywhere from ten to fourteen inches tall. These sturdy, muscular, thickset dogs have a distinctive oval shaped head and a dense, very short coat that comes in tri-color, white, black, bridle, fawn, and red. Most miniature bull terriers are playful, active, clownish, stubborn, extremely loving, and attached and devoted to their human family. They are very smart, independent thinkers, creative, very high energy and are courageous, confident, and good-natured. Miniature bull terriers crave human companionship and are not a good choice for a busy family that is away from home eight hours a day.

Most miniature bull terriers absolutely adore and love older, respectful children but are not suitable for young children, as they may be too energetic and will not tolerate anyone tormenting or teasing them. Bull terriers are tireless and love to chase balls, play games, follow their human playmates around and spend as much time as possible with them. It is important to teach your children how to properly treat and respect their dog. Teasing or provoking a bull terrier could make him extremely rough or even uncontrollable. They enjoy being included in family activities but do require a lot of supervision in their formative years. When raised with children, they are devoted and loyal to them and make a good guard dog because they are always looking out for their human playmates.
Because miniature bull terriers are very playful, active, and like to be doing something, especially for the first five or six years, they are an excellent choice for active families as long as they receive a lot of supervision and companionship. Miniature bull terriers are not a good choice of pet for people that have never had a dog before, as they can be stubborn and difficult for an inexperienced dog owner to train. They have a dominant nature so it can be very difficult for a novice or inexperienced trainer to control the dog. As long as a miniature bull terrier receives sufficient exercise, mental stimulation, supervision, love, and companionship, he will adapt into almost any household. Some bull terriers can be leery of strangers or aggressive with other animals so it is always best to be cautious when introducing them to new people or other animals.
It is very important to begin socializing and obedience training your miniature bull terrier at a very young age and continuing this through adulthood. Without proper social and obedience skills, your dog could become aggressive in certain social situations, difficult for your children to handle, and a burden to the family. When your dog is well socialized and trained properly, he understands what actions are acceptable, knows how to behave, what you expect of him, and can be safely included in family fun and activities.
