About the MBTCA

Founded in 1966, MBTCA is the authorized American Kennel Club arbiter of breed standards for the Miniature Bull Terrier in the United States. The club led development of the breed and increased the number of responsible breeders and fanciers in the U.S. for 25 years until Mini Bulls achieved full recognition by the AKC as a distinct breed for competition in 1992. Although Mini Bulls remain fairly rare in this country — fewer than 200 litters are registered with the AKC each year — MBTCA remains committed to its mission of promoting high standards in breeding practices so that more dog fanciers can fall in love with our mischievous, mighty Minis.
