First-Ever!  SA Mini Bullies Strut Their Stuff in Specialist Show


Cape Town:  On the bright, gusty morning of Saturday, the 17th of October, a bunch of Mini Bullies from the Lusahn Kennels of Malmesbury were gathered at the Theo Marais Park in Milnerton to participate in the Western Province Bull Terrier Club Show.  This is the first time in South Africa that Miniature Bull Terriers were to compete against Standard Bull Terriers in a specialist show.

The Minis had to bide their  time while expert Bull Terrier Judge, Mr Dirk Rupping of Narciano Bull Terriers in Sasolburg put the Standard Bull Terriers through their paces. In the sunburned afternoon, these special little dogs got their chance to shine in the ring.
