The Boston terrier might have a dapper, tuxedo-wearing appearance, but it's all just a ruse for what lies underneath. Like a class clown, these canines love to entertain and amuse. There's no doubt this breed dances to the beat of its own drummer, and they use their energetic spirits to capture the hearts of those who meet them.

Commonly called an "American Gentleman," according to the Boston Terrier Club of America, this breed succeeds in dog shows and performance events like flyball, so schedule plenty of time for fetch, dog tricks and other high-energy activities. Despite all of his entertaining qualities, at the end of the day, the Boston terrier seems happiest just being around his family. His gentle temperament makes him easy to love, and it's a good thing because this canine clown loves plenty of attention.
