Boston Terrier, one of the native American species, is the result of crossing the English bulldog with a white English terrier. Individual features of the first dogs were used as breeding, partly formed the basis of the modern type.
Approximately in 1870, lived in Boston, Robert Hooper purchased the townsman, William O’Brien of imported dog named Judge, who was destined to become the ancestor of almost all of these modern Boston. This dog, known as Huppah-ting Judge was mestizo – a descendant of the English bulldog and a terrier – and the type resembled a bulldog. It was a handsome, tall male weighing about 14.5 kg of bighead color with a white blaze. He had a square head and almost bite. This male was mated with a bitch, which in the old pedigrees called Jip op Kate. This white bitch owned by Edward Burnett of Southboro, Mass., weighed about 9 kg, was stocky, square format.
Descendant of Judge and Jeeps, Wells FE, was male strong addition and the same chunky, like his mother. He had a dark mottled color with symmetrical white spots and almost bite. Efa tied with Tobins Kate – a relatively small 10-pound female with quite a short head and straight tail. That these dogs were the ancestors of the breed boston terrier

In 1889, about thirty dog ??lovers from Boston and its environs have organized a society known as the Club of American Bull Terriers, and exhibited these dogs as “round-headed” or Bull Terriers. Over time, these fans are faced with fierce resistance from the large fans Bull Terriers and Bulldogs, who objected to the same breed name, pointing out that the new breed does not look like their dogs. ACN was also not sure that these dogs when playing preserve their type, so recently emerged. However, fans of the Boston Terrier is optimistic and in 1891 created the American club of the Boston Terrier. Because the dog was born in Boston, they changed the name of the breed to the Boston Terrier. It took two years of persistent effort to Boston has been recognized as a breed in 1893, fans managed to convince the American Kennel Club Record this breed in the stud book, and the club accept the membership of ACE.
Of course, the breed was still in its infancy. Faced a lot of work on standardization and on giving them the same way. However, since 1900 has been considerable progress on the basis of sound selection with kin breeding. The result was a dog with a clean-cut, short head, white-spotted, dark, gentle eyes and body, on the exterior rather like building a terrier than bulldog.
Although the Boston terrier and not a fighter, he is quite able to fend for themselves. It is characterized by a mild temper, has earned him the nickname “the American gentleman among dogs. It is perfect for the role of companion and pet
