BOSTON TERRIER

BOSTON TERRIER

Pattern entered in the FCI register under the number 140 (14. V. 1971 r.)

He is a native American dog and in his homeland is called the "American gentleman."”. Comes, as the name suggests, from Boston City, where, at the end of the last century, a team of fans set about breeding a new breed according to the same recipe, which in England resulted in a bull terrier. An English bulldog was crossed with a white English terrier. However, while in England the terrier type was selected, the Boston breeders put the main emphasis on a short head and rather bulldog type. Initially, this breed was called ,,round headed” (round-headed), and only in 1893 r. the name has been established ,,boston terrier”, under which it was entered in the books of the American Kennel Club, and then, reported by the English, entered in the FCI register.

The Boston Terrier is a harmoniously built dog, rather small, similar to a French bulldog, but without its caricatured features. And he is not a working dog in the strict sense of the word, but an ideal lapdog. Americans praise him as an extremely intelligent guardian and household companion. He is known from American films as a typical companion of playing children.

Not bred with us so far, but it appears at neighbors' exhibitions, and by the public it is sometimes confused with the French bulldog.
