BERLIN, Germany — A German court has decided a Duesseldorf dog dispute, ruling that not only size matters in determining whether a dog is officially “miniature.”
The Muenster regional administrative court decision Monday ends a battle between two miniature bull terriers owners and the city of Duesseldorf.
The city said the two dogs were both taller than the allowed height of a miniature bull terrier. That meant they were subject to multiple restrictions on the bull terrier, which is listed as a dangerous breed.
But the court ruled that the dogs could not be judged on their height alone, saying they didn't have the appearance of a bull terrier either.
