Identical to the Bull Terrier in every way except size, the Miniature Bull Terrier dates to the 19th century when Bull Terriers were bred for dog fighting. The breed has a gentle, clownish and playful personality. He is courageous and full of fire but even-tempered and amenable to discipline. Though a loving companion, he may become too energetic for small children without proper exercise and training. The breed is not recommended for homes with small non-canine pets. He has a low-maintenance coat.
A Toy Bull Terrier used to exist with the Miniature and Standard types, but the toy size eventually fell out of favor.
