Breeds You Should Know: Bully Breeds

6 / 16

Nicknamed the "American Gentlemen" due to its dapper appearance (many have a black and white, tuxedolike coloring), the Boston terrier is a cross between the English bulldog and the white English terrier, first developed in the stables of Boston, Massachusetts following the Civil War. These dogs are highly intelligent and very lively, but their small, compact frames require only a minimal amount of exercise. Boston terriers are easily identifiable by small ears that sit upright on their skulls, as well as alert and kind expressions. True to its New England roots, the breed is also the mascot of Boston University.
