Overview
The Bull Terrier is a cross between the Bulldog and the Old English Terrier with a bit of Spanish Pointer in his bloodline. This breed originated in 1830 to attack bull in this sport of combat. They were soon replaced in 1850 with the White Cavalier and have since been used for many different things. The Bull Terrier has been used as a guard dog, a ratter, a herder, and a watchdog and does extremely well in all. The Miniature Variety of the Bull Terrier comes from the same origins as the Standard, but developed to retain a more manageable size.
Character
The Miniature Bull Terrier has a very fiery personality and can be very feisty at times. This breed can be protective of his owner and territory giving off a fearless and brave presence. This breed should always have an experienced handler, as he can be very protective. The Miniature Bull Terrier should always have a dominant owner as this can escalate into aggression later in life if it is not handled at an early stage.
Temperament
Lively, friendly, yet protective, this breed can be quite difficult at times. The Miniature Bull Terrier should not be left unsupervised around small children. This breed does well around other pets given the proper socialization, however should be supervised around smaller animals. The Miniature Bull Terrier can be somewhat combative around other animals, but if raised with them from puppy hood he can do exceptionally well.
Care
Regular grooming is not necessary for this shorthaired breed. Occasionally brushing and combing should be sufficient to remove any loose hair from the Miniature Bull Terrier. A wipe down with a damp washcloth should also keep this breed fairly clean. The ears should be cleaned on a regular basis, and the nails should be clipped at least once every two weeks to keep them at a manageable length. A rub down with a specially made rubber glove should suffice and take care of many, if not all grooming aspects.
Coat
The Miniature Bull Terrier has a very short and flat coat. The coat should remain harsh to the touch and should always be glossy. The coat should be close lying and very tight. The skin of this breed should always be tight, never having wrinkles or saggy skin.
Training
The Miniature Bull Terrier can be difficult to train and is not for the inexperienced. They can be willful and dominant making training a task. The handler must be firm, consistent, and always dominant to prevent problems. The Miniature Bull Terrier can be very stubborn so obedience classes are recommended at an early age to make training a little easier in the future.
Activity
The Miniature Bull Terrier is a fairly active breed and does best with at least a small yard. This breed enjoys long daily walks, however they do love a regular romp free, but should always be in a fenced area. This dog loves long walks and jogs with his owner. This breed should always have at least one hour of exercise per day to stay healthy and active and to prevent destruction.

I have a full-size Bull Terrier who thinks she is queen sometimes. Do you think the mini would make her happy, as they are the same breed? Other than the size.

If you have a Standard Bull Terrier that is pushy and has a bit of behavioral problems, it is probably best not to have another dog. Until you've done training with the one you have to fix the 'queen' behavior you are talking about; it is best to just have one dog. Bringing a puppy into the mix, the puppy can take after the adult dog and then you'll have two dogs with behavioral problems. Or, the dog could become aggressive towards your puppy, prompting your pup to become afraid of other dogs, or even fear aggressive. Start with training the one you have, and then if/when she gets along with other dogs and doesn't have behavioral problems; you can start thinking about getting a second dog.

I run a lot and would like to have a dog to join me for parts of the runs , what's a good range for these dogs? I know it would need to start shorter distances like anyone, but are Miniature Bull Terrier's good for running?

I have a very friendly Cane Corso, he loves other dogs, but he is very big. Would a Mini Bull Terrier be a good fit in our family?

The Cane Corso is a big, burly dog that when he/she plays, they play rough. They like to rough and tumble with other dogs and that's just the way they are. As for getting another dog, I would not suggest a Mini, but a standard Bull Terrier might work for your family. However, please remember you will then have two strong-willed, burly dogs that will not back down. Play fights can turn into real fights really quickly when two minds think alike. It may be a good idea to look into a Labrador Retriever, Siberian Husky, Australian Cattle Dog, or even the Black Mouthed Cur -- all are breeds that need lots of play time/exercise and should do well with a Cane Corso as a best friend.

I was thinking of adding a female Miniature Bull Terrier to my dog family. I have a Boston, three Jack Russells, and two Borderjacks. All my dogs have an activity, agility, rally, flyball, etc. Is a Mini a dog that would enjoy something like these things?

Oh yes, the Mini Bull Terrier is a spunky little dog that would have a blast doing agility, rally, flyball and any other dog sport you could throw at him. I think he would be a great little addition to your fur-family.

Are Miniature Bull Terriers hypoallergenic? I researched them and it says that they are, but I have people telling me they are not.

The Miniature Bull Terrier is considered a hypoallergenic breed of dog. But please understand that there are different levels of hypoallergenic breeds. The Miniature Bull Terrier does shed like any other dog, but they are not prone to much dandruff, which is how they are considered hypoallergenic. If you or a family member has allergies, please consider fostering or going to a dog show that has the breed there so that yourself and your family can make sure everyone can live with a Miniature Bull Terrier without issues.
