    Breed Spotlight: Boston Terrier

    While it may not be one of the top four breeds sold in Massachusetts, the Boston Terrier continues to be a very common choice of dog within the state. This adorable breed originated in – you guessed it! – Boston, and was developed in the late 1800s by crossing an English Bulldog with an English Terrier (a breed which is now extinct). After some years of campaigning, the breed's supporters formed the Boston Terrier Club of America in 1891, and the breed was added to the American Kennel Club list of recognized breeds in 1893.

    The Boston is often nicknamed the “American gentleman” for its gentle, loyal disposition and black & white tuxedo markings. A people-loving, lively breed, Boston Terriers are known for their expressive faces and amusing sense of humor. They are eager and easy to train, and are excellent with children and family members of all ages. These friendly, affectionate dogs are small but sturdy, and love to be around people.

    Did you know?

    Despite their name, Boston Terriers are actually not included in the Terrier Group. They are in the Non-Sporting Group.
