The Boston Terrier: An American Gentleman

Boston Terrier

Like many Americans, the Boston terrier can trace his roots back to England and France, but the sum of the parts is pure American. One of only a small number of dog breeds originating in the United States, the Boston terrier can be stubborn, yet gentle and full of fun. With a coat reminiscent of a tuxedo, it’s no wonder this dapper little dog is known as the American Gentleman.

Boston Beginnings

The Boston terrier genealogy begins around 1870, with a dog named Hooper’s Judge, who belonged to Bostonian Robert Hooper. Although Judge’s exact lineage is unknown, he seems to have been a mix of English terrier and bulldog. He was a good-sized fellow, weighing in around 30 pounds, with a well-built body and a square head. He was bred with a smaller white dog and their offspring were bred with smaller dogs and a few French bulldogs until they had the foundation for today’s Boston terrier.

Just as the breed’s development required a bit of shuffling to pin down its appearance, so did its name. The breed, even when taking part in shows, went by a variety of names, including American terriers, round-headed bull and terriers, bullet heads, Boston bulldogs, and Boston bull terriers. However, the bulldog fanciers took issue to this upstart breed being called a bulldog or bull terrier, so eventually the breed simply became known as the Boston terrier. By 1893, the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club, a mere 20 years or so after the beginning of the breed.

Dapper Dog

The Boston terrier comes in three sizes: under 15 pounds; 15 to 19 pounds; and 20 to 25 pounds. They are not to weight more than 25 pounds for competition, as well as for their own health. His relatively small size doesn’t display itself in a skinny or spindly build. The breed is solidly built, strong, with a square head, and erect ears. Yet the overall appearance of the Boston terrier is one of proportionality. No one feature stands out more than another, except perhaps, the big, dark, wide-spaced eyes that have been known to melt the heart of almost anyone upon whom they gaze.

The clean lines of the Boston terrier are further enhanced by the breed’s sleek, smooth, short-haired coat. The colors are black, brindle or seal, with white markings. It is this combination of dark coloring with white around the muzzle, a blaze on the forehead, and on the chest, which sometimes gives the Boston the appearance of wearing a tuxedo, adding to his dapper reputation.

Like pugs and other bachycephalic breeds, the Boston terrier has a broad, pushed-in nose, although it lacks the facial wrinkles of similar breeds. This feature means that the Boston is best as an indoor dog, because it is unable to properly regulate its temperature in warm and cold weather. Although the Boston terrier may be thought of as a gentleman, this shorter nose can lead to less than gentlemanly snoring, snorting and drooling. One other less-than-gentlemanly habit of the Boston terrier is its flatulence. The breed seems to be susceptible to gas, even with a careful diet.

Lots of Personality

The Boston’s small size makes it a good dog for city dwellers and apartments. The breed can get by with regular walks and a good game of fetch in order to fulfill its exercise requirements. Of course, those daily walks in the city may take longer than expected as people stop to admire this lively and handsome dog.

A wonderful companion dog, the Boston terrier is great for families with children, as well as older individuals. This is an intelligent breed that is affectionate and loves to entertain. They can hold their own if threatened, but they’re not Boston brawlers. The Boston terrier is a happy, gentle, even-tempered dog who is bound to make any American proud.

  • Because of their narrow hips and broad heads, most Boston terriers are born via cesarean section, and the litter size is usually very small.
  • The Boston terrier is stubborn yet sensitive, so they do best with positive, consistent training methods.
  • Rhett the Boston terrier is the mascot of Boston University.
  • Although they may have terrier in their name, they are placed in the non-sporting group, rather than the terrier group, by the AKC.
  • As part of the bicentennial celebrations in 1976, the Boston terrier was selected as the official dog of the celebration. The Boston Terrier is also the state dog of Massachusetts.
