We are owners and producers of quality AKC miniature bull terrier adults and puppies. Rossi River is surrounded by a national forest, nestled between the Atlantic coast and Appalachian Mountains in the heart of North Carolina. Our miniature bull terriers have 16 beautiful acres to roam and explore. The images on this website were photographed on our property and provide a glimpse of the amazing scenery our minibulls encounter daily.
Our breeding program includes outstanding dogs from around the world. We are fortunate that top breeders from Spain, Russia, Poland, Estonia, and the United Kingdom have entrusted us with their progenies. Produced by international multi-champions and grand champions, each dog enhances our program with its unique qualities and distinctive appearance. Furthermore, we believe that introducing new lineages is the best method of maintaining genetic diversity within the United States and neighboring countries. For this reason, we are continuously evaluating pedigrees or searching for miniature bull terriers that have the potential to improve our lines, both genetically and physically.
Rossi River dogs undergo extensive health screenings as suggested by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. Our primary veterinarian team has decades of experience with pets and livestock. They are also available around the clock for emergency situations. Specialty medical services are provided by the 2nd top-ranking school in the nation, NC State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. At NC State University, we have access to board certified cardiologists, sonographers, audiologists, and other world class specialists.
We strive to produce sound companions that meet the breed standard dictated by the AKC. Health and temperament are important indicators of quality companions. However, we feel size should also be a top priority. Size is the major characteristic that differentiates a miniature and standard bull terrier. As such, we aim to produce dogs less than 14 inches in height. Producing quality dogs is a multi-dimensional process. Our philosophy allows us to produce healthy, well-rounded minibulls for the future success and wellness of the breed. As caretakers, it is our responsibility to love and respect what the miniature bull terrier once was, what it is, and what it will become.
