Size, Proportion, and Symmetry:
SIZE: The size for a mature Miniature Bulldog is about 12 – 14″ tall.

SYMMETRY: The “points” should be well distributed and bear good relation one to the other. Females not so grand as males.
EYES: The eyes, seen from the front, should be situated low down in the skull, as far from the ears as possible, and their corners should be in a straight line at right angles with the stop. They should be quite in front of the head, as wide apart as possible, provided their outer corners are within the outline of the cheeks when viewed from the front. They should be quite round in form, of moderate size.
EARS: The ears should be rosed. Ears should be set high in the head, the front inner edge of each earjoining the outline of the skull at the top back corner of skull, so as to place them as wide apart, and as high, and as far from the eyes as possible. The ears should be small and thin. The shape termed “rose ear” is the most desirable. The rose ear folds inward at its back lower edge, the upper front edge curving over, outward and backward, showing part of the inside of the burr. (The ears should not be erect or prick or buttoned and never be cropped.)
SKULL: The skull should be very large in circumference, very broad and square so as to appear block shaped. In front of the ears, should measure at least the height of the dog at the shoulders.

CHEEKS: The cheeks should be rounded protruding sideways and outward beyond the eyes.
STOP: The frontal bones should be very defined, broad, square and high, causing a hollow or groove between the eyes. This indentation, or stop, should be both broad and deep and extend up the middle of the forehead.

The muzzle being very short, wide, turned upward and very deep from the corner of the eye to the corner of the mouth.
NOSE: The nose should broad and black, its tip set back deeply between the eyes. The distance from bottom of stop, between the eyes, to the tip of nose should be as short as possible.
LIPS: “Flews” should be thick, broad, pendant and completely overhanging the lower jaw at each side. They join the underlip in front and almost cover the teeth, which should be hardly be noticeable when the mouth is closed.
BITE & JAWS: The jaws should be massive, wide, square and “undershot,” the lower jaw projecting in front of the upper jaw and turning up.
TEETH: The teeth should be strong & large.
Neck, Topline, & Body:
NECK: Very thick and strong. Topline: There is a slight fall in the back, close behind the shoulders (lowest part), next the spine should rise to the loins and curving again more suddenly to the tail, forming an arch or “roach back”.
BODY: The brisket should be deep, ribs should be well-rounded.
CHEST: The chest should be very broad, deep and full. Ribs should be well sprung & very deep.
BACK & LOIN: The back should be short and strong, very broad at the shoulders and narrow at the loins.
