     history-

Following the Civil War, the Boston Terrier breed was developed in the stables of Boston, Massachusetts, as a fighting dog. An imported dog known as "Hooper's Judge" became the ancestor of almost all true modern Boston Terriers. The breed is an American creation, resulting from a cross between an English Bulldog and a white English Terrier. In 1891, the breed became known as Boston Terriers, taking the name of the city where they originated.

coat color and buld-

Boston Terriers, also called Boston Bulls, are compact and well-muscled dogs. The body is short with a square appearance. The square-looking head is flat on the top and in proportion to the rest of the body. The deep, wide, short muzzle is in proportion with the head. The nose is black. The stop is well defined. The bite is either even or slightly undershot, giving the muzzle the square look. The large, round, dark eyes are wide-set. The erect "bat like" ears are small and either cropped or left natural. The limbs are straight and muscular. The legs are set somewhat wide apart and the chest is broad. The neck is slightly arched. The low-set, tapered tail is short and either straight or screw-shaped and is never docked. The short, fine textured coat comes in seal, brindle and white, black and white and some are born brown and white, but to be recognized by the AKC they must be black, brindle, or seal with white markings.

They require only a moderate amount of exercise and a minimum amount of grooming. The breed is easy to train and they are easy keepers, preferring to remain by their owner’s sides.

The Boston Terrier’s prominent eyes are prone to injury. Also, deafness, patellar luxation, heart and skin tumors, including mast cell tumors. These short-faced dogs may have breathing difficulties br when stressed by exertion in hot or cold weather and can overheat if they are pushed too hard. They may also snore or drool. Whelping is often difficult as the pelvis is narrow; the large-headed pups are often delivered by cesarean section.
