The Boston Terrier debuted in Boston, United States. Around 1870, the crossing between English Bulldogs and English Terriers led to some other breeds. One of the first dogs of this type was named, Hooper's judge. He was raised with a white female, which gave birth to the first of the Boston Terriers, although they did not wear this name until later.
In 1889, the American Bull Terrier Club was organized by the owners of this new breed of dogs. Unfortunately, the founders of this club have encountered opposition from the owners of Bull Terrier and Bulldog. They did not believe that it was right to consider this new breed with the same status or to use the same name as their established races. The club quickly changed the name to the Boston Terrier Club.
Originally, crossbreeding produced inconsistent results and it took many years of selective crossbreeding, including consanguinity, before consistent results were obtained. Sometimes the breed has become what it is today.
A small compact dog with a square skull and jaw with a muzzle or shortened muzzle, the Boston Terrier has round eyes distant from each other. His head is short, as is his tail, which is rather low on the back or the rump. His body is rather short because of his short legs.
The ears of a Boston Terrier are pointed and attached to the corners of his square skull. They are perfectly worn on his head. The nose of a Boston terrier is wide and very black. The muzzle and chest are usually white in color.
Their color is usually black with white markings, a seal (a kind of reddish-looking black) or a brindle with white markings. It is this particular combination of dark hair and bright white markings that makes it easy to recognize the Boston Terrier. Boston Terriers do not lose much and their grooming needs are minimal. Trimming is useless at any time.
The Boston Terrier is known for its friendly nature making it a wonderful companion. He does well in the apartments and lives with singles. However, it is equally adaptable to family life since it does not go well with children.
The Boston Terrier is a smart breed, which gives it an easy workout. His disposition is typically friendly and kind. He likes spending time with people and being inside is quite acceptable to him. In fact, staying indoors is also advisable because of its extreme sensitivity to changes in temperature and sensitivity to skin conditions.
In addition, he is loyal and empathetic to his owners and their needs. As a watchdog, he is excellent and reliable. He is always attentive to any change and reacts quickly. The intruders will meet his desire to escape them since his relatively small size.
However, in part because of its original kinship lines, it displays a tendency to interact rather aggressively with other dogs. He quickly takes on any challenge and presents himself very well and manages to stay ahead in any heckling.
The Boston Terriers in good health do not need to do a lot of exercise to stay happy and happy. However, it is important to moderate exercise, which includes walking and some games, especially among young puppies who tend to have more energy.
Regular walks and exercises, even at a moderate level, are important not only for the dog's physical health, but also for his mental health. However, it is important to remember this breed's tendency to respiratory problems and to maintain exercise in brief sessions that do not involve overwork on the part of the dog.
The Boston Terrier is a small to medium size. The light dog usually weighs less than 6.8 kg or 15 lbs. Average weights usually weigh between 6.8 and 9 kg or between 15 and 20 lbs. Heavy trucks generally weigh between 9-11.3 kg or 20-25 lbs. The typical size of the adult is about 31 to 38 cm or 12 to 15 inches.
Health problems that can affect the Boston Terrier include hypothyroidism, mega-esophagus, epilepsy, glaucoma, cataracts, cardiovascular problems and allergic dermatitis. Eye and respiratory problems are common in breeds with short muzzle. As a result, this breed could also suffer from wheezing, especially in extremely hot weather.
The American Kennel Club recognized this breed in 1893. The average life of the Boston Terrier is ten to fifteen years.
