A bull terrier named ‘Jagger Bonsai von Amadis’ stands with his owner in front of the Higher Administrative Court in Muenster, Germany, Monday, Feb. 17, 2020. In a dispute about whether a large miniature bull terrier can still be considered miniature, two of the dogs were brought in to the Higher Administrative Court in Muenster to be examined.
