|What is a TRUE NATURAL MINI BULLDOG?
RB's Mini Mite Munchkins are NOT RUNTS, nor are
they crossed or mixed with pugs and/or shar-pei.
Our minis are AKC purebred, naturally occurring,
small bullys that are born fat & healthy, and
with a smaller frame structure.
True Runts are malnourished in uetero or have
some congenital problems that may or may not be
evident at birth. If these babies live, they
almost always grow up to be a normal size dog
for their breed. Breeders who try to pass off
Runts as Minis, petites, toys, etc. are
unscrupulous & more than likely have ulterior
Rare Bulldogs Mini's are also True Midgets, NOT Dwarfs. Midgets
result from a lack of growth hormone & otherwise look very
normally proportioned, only smaller. Dwarfs have a genetic
bone/cartilage defect that cause shortened limbs, large joints,
& bowed legs, among other things. At Rare Bulldogs, we do not
breed dwarfs nor sell them as breeders.
AKC has recently changed it's size in weight on
the English Bulldog. Forever it has been a flat
out 55 lbs. But now they have a 50 lb
designation for MALES & a 40 lb designation for
FEMALES. Thus we have changed our definition of
TRUE MINI to coincide with the AKC Standard on
There is also growing approval from many breeders
that a True Mini should be designated by its
body size & not it's weight in the English
Bulldog Breed, because of the density of the
bulldog body, making even very small specimens
of the breed weighing more than the designation.
Rare Bulldogs will join this growing croud of
breeders and designate the size in inches at the
There is officially no accepted Standard for a
"Mini English Bulldog", but common sense would
dictate that anything under the accepted AKC
standard would be considered a mini.
here at Rare
Bulldogs consider our English Bulldogs to be
"Minis" if at maturity they are:
*Females up to 39 lbs. and/or 13.5" and under at
*Males up to 49 lbs. and/or 13.5" and under at
Even in our standard size
breedings we consistently have at least one or 2
Natural Minis in every litter.
experienced breeders have to know what they are
doing, and be VERY cautious in breeding ANY
female Bulldog under 40 lbs. If your small girl
drops more than 5 eggs, you stand a chance at
loosing both Mom & pups as her little body
cannot hold all those heavy babies to term.
Breeding these small girls can put you in the
position to take the babies early in order to
save your girl, and almost 100% of the time, the
babies do not survive. If you don't, you will
loose your Mom too. Just because your Mom is a
Mini and maybe the Dad too, you still have the
chance of getting
at least some standard size babies in the
litter, and could even get a whole standard
Because of this, here at Rare Bulldogs, we will
not breed extremely small Moms, and will plan
our Mini breeding program maticulously. It is
just not worth the loss and heartbreak.
Note: ANY size EB Mom can get into trouble if
her litter is too big or too heavy, so EVERY
litter should be handles with Caution.
