Miniature Bull Terrier Dog Temperament
Very much like the larger bull terrier, the mini is comical, lively, playful and mischievous. Despite her smaller size, she is not a lap dog. She is every bit as tough as the larger version and apt to want to prove herself even more. She is a sweet clown, devoted but not fawning. She is stubborn and independent and needs to be trained with a firm yet gentle hand , and a good sense of humor. She likes to play and investigate. She likes to dig, and needs ample exercise.
