Boston Terriers were the first breed developed in America, and it's no surprise that they lived in Boston!
In 1970, this breed was designated as the state dog of Massachusetts. Because not every state has a state dog, this is a one-of-a-kind honour.
Initially, Boston Terriers were bred for the terrible and violent practice of dog fighting.
Boston Terriers were given the nickname "the American Gentleman" because they appear to be dressed in a tuxedo. So adorable!
These dogs don't drool a lot, but they snore a lot due to the size and shape of their muzzles. They are also prone to grunting and snorting.
Because of their short muzzles, they can take in a lot of air, which can mean a lot of gas. With all that tooting, they've been known to clear a room!
Boston Terriers can be confused with French Bulldogs because they look a lot alike. You can tell them apart by their ears. Boston Terriers have pointed ears while French Bulldogs have rounded ones.
President Gerald Ford had two Boston Terriers named Fleck and Spot. Warren G. Harding had one called Hub.
