Bull-Pug, Mini-Bulldog, English Toy Bulldog


The Miniature Bulldog is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Bulldog and the Pug or the Olde Bulldog and the Pug. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in any of the breeds in the hybrid. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

The Miniature Bulldog should not be confused with the Miniature English Bulldog, which is the purebred English Bulldog being bred down in size and called Miniature by some breeders.

Exercise Needs

The exercise needs of the Miniature Bulldog are uncomplicated. It will adapt itself to the activity level of your family. Sufficient rest is key to development of healthy bones, muscles, and joints—do not expect your Miniature Bulldog to run long distances or jump down from tall ledges.


Consistency is important, but the Miniature Bulldog is highly sensitive to the tone of its handler's voice, making training a fairly simple process. It is inquisitive and quick to learn simple tasks, yet unpredictable as it is a bit stubborn on occasion.



Grooming Requirements

Low Maintenance: Infrequent grooming is required to maintain upkeep. No trimming or stripping needed.


When the Miniature Bulldog is shedding, use a rubber brush to remove dead hairs.
