Is This the World’s Smallest English Bulldog?

There’s been a lot of talk in the Twitter-verse lately about the proper size of English Bulldogs.

Big bulldogs (on skateboards) are ruling the silver screen causing some of our more petite fury English friends to be confused with their French counterparts. (This actually happened to Sherbert at the dog park!)

And this post has brought in a lot of traffic from people Googling, “World’s Smallest Bulldog.”
So sorry to add to the confusion.

So one of our Twitter buddies, @kateshirley, is on a mission to find the legitimately smallest (yet still healthy…) English Bulldog out there.

She thinks her girl, Scooter (pictured above), and whom she describes as a “football wrapped in fur with a bulldog head on top” may just be the winner.

Here are Scoot’s stats:

23″ long x 13.75″ high
weight: 31 lbs.
girth (under her armpits): 25″

Know an English bulldog that has Scooter beat?

  1. Thanks! Believe it or not, she was the pick of the litter and was pretty big when she was born. But, it’s nice having her at her compact size. I can’t imagine her weighing 10 lbs more.

  2. Hello there! Just stumbled upon yours along with a nice handful of other bully blogs. Can’t believe it took me so long – we’ve been blogging almost a year. I’m a Frenchie, but would love to be friends! Stop on by to say hi sometime!!

  3. i had no idea how big Thurman was until we ran into Sampson at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor yesterday, he is a beautiful two year old male. Thurman was at least 4 inches taller than he was!

  4. A little late to this discussion, but we just stumbled across this. We’ve actually got two of them in the running. Dulce is 13.5″ tall at the shoulder, 22″ girth at under the armpits, and 25.5″ tip to tail and she weighs in at a whopping 30 lbs. She’s 5 years old and probably the sweetest little girl out there in the world. Midge is 13″ tall at the shoulder, 23″ girth (at her biggest point, across the middle of the ribs, and 23″ tip to tail. She tips the scales at a thunderous 21.5 lbs! She’s a little 6-year fireball who runs for the front door for a “let’s go!” dance the second she sees a leash dangling.

    Our third is small for the breed, but big by comparison. He’s 41 lbs and he is a muscle machine. Hank is 4 and a mudstuffin. When we get the three together and lined up, we call ’em Small, Medium, and Large.

  5. Yay! I knew there were more out there! When I first got Scooter, I had seen another small guy, probably around 35-40 lbs at a vet up near Baltimore. I knew Scooter wasn’t alone in her petite stature! Do you guys get the same befuddled looks from people who are like, that looks like an English bully, but it’s kind of Frenchie sized?

  6. Hi, im so glad I stumbled upon his. Being a bully lover and owner of 6 english bulldogs. One of them being smallest bulldog ive ever seen in person or anywhere for that matter. Her name us Junebug and she weighs 25 lbs. Is 11inches tall by 22 incheslong from arm pit to armpit she is 8inches. I can send a pic if you let me know where. Thank you

  7. I have a baby bulldog pup who is 4 weeks, 5 days old and weighs in at 15oz (just weighed). I don’t think that I have ever had one this tiny!! Wonder what she will be when she get’s older…… 🙂

  8. I have a litter of 8 chamoion sired AKC English Bulldog pups with 62 champions in their pedigree. They are now 12 weeks old. The largest pup weighs 12 lbs and my smallest weighs 5.75 lbs. They are super tiny but healthy and playful. I expect their adult weights to be 20-40 lbs.

  9. This is way way out of date, but I was googling this because I have a full grown adult bulldog who is 27lbs. I kept taking her to the vet expecting someone to tell me something was wrong, but thats it. She’s just tiny. Permanent puppy.

  10. We have a Purebred english Bulldog, one year eight months, that almost out-tinies her. Ours is 35.9 pounds, 17 inches long, 15 inches tall, and has a girth of 26.
