The Boston Terrier is a small, compact dog that has a short, smooth coat and a distinctive flat face. They are known for their friendly disposition and their willingness to please. They have an athletic build with a broad chest and muscular shoulders. The Boston Terrier has a short tail that curls toward its back.
The breed was developed in the early 1800s in Boston, Massachusetts as an all-around farm dog that could be used for hunting and as a guard dog. The breed was first shown in 1878 at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and became popular as a companion dog after World War II when returning soldiers brought them home from Europe.
Boston Terriers are affectionate, playful dogs who enjoy being around people. They can become overprotective of their family if they do not receive enough attention from them. They do best with active owners who will take them on long walks every day or play games with them indoors instead of leaving them alone with nothing to do but chew on furniture or other household items if left alone for long periods of time during the day while everyone is away at work or school all day long every single weekday weekdays only (no weekends).
The Boston Terrier is a small, short-haired dog with a square head and short muzzle. They are stocky, muscular, and compact. The coat is glossy, smooth and short, but you can find them in long coats as well.
