Description: Is it a Bulldog? Is it a Terrier? It’s actually a bit of both. The Boston Terrier is said to be the first purebred dog to originate in the United States. A man by the name of Robert C. Hooper, who was from England but made his permanent residence in Boston, Massachusetts, imported an English Bulldog – English terrier cross. This dog, Judge, became the starting point for what we now know as the Boston Terrier.

The Boston is a lively, intelligent breed. They are friendly and make a great companion dog for any family. Because of their markings, it is easy for the Boston to be recognized. They have a short coat that is black, brindle, or seal with white markings. The white markings consist of a white blaze between the eyes, and a white chest, giving the Boston the “tuxedo” look.

If you choose a Boston to become the newest part of your family, get ready for a new best friend for many, many years. Depending on the breeding, health and how well your dog is taken care of, a Boston Terrier can easily live between 12 and 14 years old.

Because of his characteristically gentle disposition, the Boston Terrier was nicknamed the “American gentleman among dogs”.

The Boston terrier was named the state dog of Massachusetts by Governor Edward King in 1979, who owned a Boston terrier named Skippy as a boy.
