The Boston Terrier is a cross between an English Bulldog and a English WhiteTerrier resulting in a very intelligent little dog that shows the best features of both of these parent breeds.
The Boston Terrier is truly an "All American" dog. According to the AKC, part of the breed's success is due to it's American origins. Bostons are often described as near-perfect companions. They are friendly, affectionate, gentle with children, clean, easy to train and comical. Bostons live for their owners and they are eager to please.
In 1893 the Boston Terrier received its first recognition when 75 Bostons were approved for admission into the stud book of the American Kennel Club. Following recognition, the breed developed rapidly and soon found a place in homes and hearts all across America.
