I have loved Bull Terriers since I was a teen that is when I watched the original Walt Disney movie the "Incredible Journey". At that time I was showing my mother's Dobermans. One day I can remember announcing to my mother that I wanted my own show dog and asked her if I could get a Bull Terrier. My first Bull Terrier was "Sheba" and it wasn't until almost twenty years later that I started my own kennel called "Bull Lovers". Over the past twenty five years I have bred over forty Canadian and International champions including the top winning Canadian bred Bull Terrier of all time. My Bull Terriers have starred in the "#15" video with Don Cherry, been on stage, TV, calendars and even used as models for sculptures. Then in 2005 I got my first Miniature Bull Terrier. I thought I would like them but never dreamed how much and I have been "Hooked" on minis ever since. With in a year or so I placed all my Bull Terriers and have only owned minis since.
What I fell in love with, is their size, temperament and over all personality. The Miniature Bull Terrier is not a down sized version of the Bull Terrier; it is a SEPARATE BREED. They are unique unto themselves, yet have all the fun and quirky characteristics of Bull Terriers.
