The compact version of the Bull Terrier, this Miniature offers all of the fire and fearlessness of his bigger brother in a more manageable, portable package. The Miniature Bull Terrier is a happy, friendly dog that thrives in an active family where he serves as an affectionate companion and courageous watchdog. Although smaller than the Standard Bull Terrier, the Miniature Bull Terrier is stronger--pound for pound--a true mighty Mini! Like all of the members of the Terrier group, the Miniature Bull Terrier is intelligent and independent, capable of making his own decisions, sometimes despite his owner's directives. No doubt the Mini will keep his owners laughing; few breeds can compete with the Mini's entertaining and fun-loving disposition. For the family seeing an amenable, amusing canine pal, the Miniature Bull Terrier fits the bill in a big way!
This book includes the history of the Mini Bull in England and the US, a discussion of the breed's characteristics and standard, a chapter on puppy selection, care and rearing. The author discusses house-training and obedience training as well as preventing (and solving) behavior problems. General maintenance, including feeding the Mini Bull throughout his life, grooming and exercise, is carefully considered, as is the preventive healthcare of the breed. For every owner of this "portable big dog," this new colorful guide promises to be an invaluable resource for years to come.
