For white, pure white coat. For colored, any color to predominate.
The Miniature Bull Terrier is active, courageous, determined, even-tempered, and strongly built. They are loving and make great companions, but can be stubborn at times. They are very energetic and playful, and must be supervised around young children. Early and consistent socialization and obedience training are very important for this breed.
