Miniature English bulldogs should not be confused with English bulldog/pug mixes, which some breeders refer to as "miniature English bulldogs." A true miniature English bulldog is a purebred bulldog that has been selectively bred to be downsized. The height of full-grown male dogs is 11 to 14 inches (27 to 35 cm), with females only measuring 10 to 13 inches (25 to 33 cm). Males weigh in at between 25 and 40 pounds (22 to 18 kg), while females average slightly lighter at 25 to 38 pounds (11 to 17 kg). In contrast, standard English bulldog of both sexes range from 12 to 16 inches (31-40 cm) in height and average 50 pounds in weight for mature dogs.
There are several clubs for devotees of the miniature English bulldog: the English Bulldog Miniature Association International, the Miniature Bulldog Association, the Bulldog Miniature World Club of America, the Miniature Bulldog Club of America, and the Mini Bulldog Watch Club
