Toy Bulldog

The Toy Bulldog, also known as the Miniature Bulldog, is an extinct breed of small Bulldog that averaged 8 pounds in weight. These Bulldogs are bred with the Pug. Many of them were pushed out of Britain during the mid-to-late 19th century, sa seen as a threat to the Bulldog breed. They were used to create the French Bulldog. Contrary to popular belief the French Bulldog was not contrived in France. The French Bulldog was bred originally in England in the 19th century by lace makers and artisans.

The Boston Terrier was developed by crossing the Toy Bulldog with the white English Terrier, along with an infusion of French Bulldog.

In the early 21st century, breeders were advertising "Miniature Bulldogs", but these would seem to be newly created Bulldog - Pug crossbreeds.

    Everything from toy guns that spark
    To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
    It’s easy to see without looking too far
    That not much is really sacred.
