Bull Breeds (Non-Sporting)
The Non-Sporting bull breeds include the Bulldog, the French Bulldog and the Boston Terrier, the latter the two breeds derived from the now extinct Bulldog (miniature). In Australia the ANKC classifies these three breeds in the Non-Sporting Group, as does the AKC (American Kennel Club). However, the Kennel Club (UK) classifies these three in the Utility Group. To confuse the issue more, the European FCI classifies the Bulldog in the Mastiff Group while the French Bulldog and Boston Terrier are in the Toy and Companion Dog Group. As this is an Australian site, they appear here in the Non-Sporting Group.
