About the Boston Terrier - Country of Origin, History of the breed.

Boston Terrier Dogs	The Boston Terrier originates in the United States of America, and has been around since the year 1870, when a man named Robert C. Hooper bought a dog named ‘Hooper’s Judge’. The dog Hooper’s Judge was actually a cross between an English Bulldog and an English White Terrier. Over time the breed was bred down in size and finally in 1893 the Boston Terrier breed gained recognition by the American Kennel Club (AKC).

In the year 1889, a group of thirty god owners from the Boston area started the American Bull Terrier Club. Dogs known as "Round Heads" or "Bull Terriers" were bred and exhibited by these people. This resulted in Bull Terrier breeders objecting that the crosses exhibited were not Terriers and Bulldog breeders objecting that they they were not BulldogsBoston Terrier either. In 1891 the name was changed to the Boston Terrier Club of America, (BTCA) and a standard for the Boston Terrier breed was written. In 1893 the breed was accepted by the AKC. By 1915 the Boston Terrier breed became stabilized and had become the most popular in the country. They were number one in registrations in 1919, 1920 and 1930. The Breed remained in the Top Ten until 1960, but have slipped steadily since that time. This Breed has become refined and standardized, as this intelligent and spunky little dog is a fitting representative of the spirit of independence from Boston Commons.
