History of the Breed
or Boston Bull,
breed of non-sporting
dog, originated by crossing an English bulldog with a white English
terrier. The Boston terriers, recognized by the American Kennel Club
as a distinct breed in 1893, are descended from a dog owned about 1884
by a native of Boston. The Boston terrier is a small dog, weighing
about 7 to 11 kg (about 15 to 25 lb). It has a square, flat skull;
large, round, dark eyes that are alert and intelligent; a smooth coat,
usually brindle in color with white markings, or black with white
markings; a short, square muzzle; small, thin ears; a wide chest; and
a short, tapering tail. The Boston terrier is lively, strong,
intelligent and gentle—an ideal pet.
