    Default Have you ever heard of miniature EB's???

    The breeder I got my Frankie from says his EB and his GF's EB are "miniature" EBs... Now, I know this is just a "selling gimmick" with other breeds so I haven't put much thought into it but thought I would ask the people that REALLY know EBs!!

    No such thing. There are non-purebred bulldogs that are smaller or there are small bulldogs. There are no miniature EBs

    I have a miniature english bulldog. He is a year old now. I know he isn't pure breed but he is the smaller version. He is very healthy .

    As far as I understand, there is no such thing as an actual miniature EB. They are just bred down EBs....a small EB bred with another small EB.

    Riggins came from a breeder that breeds EB's on the smaller end of the AKC standard. They said they like the shorter but stalky bullies. I found out after the fact (he was a gift to me) that the breeders also own another business where they breed what THEY call "miniature" EBs. They sell those to all the celebs from what I've learned in my research. I also learned that somehow Riggins sire also sires for the "miniatures" as well as the standard EBs. Not sure how that works but I am assuming for the standard, he is bred with a "normal" EB. For their "miniatures" I assume they breed him with a small EB.

    But Rigs came from their standard side of the business...so they say. He is a 100% purebred English Bulldog. Like I said, he is just on the smaller end of the AKC standard. He's a little guy but is really starting to grow and fill out.

    People come up with all kinds of things to sell something. They may call a smaller EBD a miniature, but there is no such registration in the AKC. It's just another trick to charge more $ !

    From my experience they call what my Wheezie is a miniature or freelance or hybrid.She is half English half French and papered. Both her parents are full blooded..Her dad is a Frenchie mom EB.She is 45 lbs about 14 inches tall and has control of her ears.But there are no minis in my mind.
