Boston-terrier-history

The Boston terrier breed began in 1875, when Boston’s Robert C. Hooper purchased a dog named Judge from Edward Burnett, afterwards known as Hooper’s Judge, which was of a bull and terrier type heritage. In the United States, it was the first non-sporting dog breed.

Judge was roughly 15 kilogrammes in weight. Judge is a descendant of Burnett’s Gyp. Mr. Edward Burnett of Southboro, MA, owned Gyp, a white bulldog-type female. She was about 20 pounds, stocky and robust, and had the classic blocky skull seen in Bostons nowadays.

From this foundation, future breeders improved the breed into the form we know today. In 1870, the breed was first presented in Boston. By 1889, the breed had grown in popularity in Boston to the point that the American Bull Terrier Club was created.

The club changed its name to the Boston Terrier Club after James Watson’s suggestion, and it was approved to membership in the American Kennel Club in 1893, making it the first US breed to be recognised.
