Named after his city of origin Boston Massachusetts, the Boston Terrier is as American as baseball. In 1865, Robert C. Hooper, a resident of Boston, purchased an English Bulldog, white English Terrier cross. This mixed-breed dog, with his dark brindle colour and white blaze, became known as Hooper's Judge.
At the time, bulldog and terrier mixes were used for dog fighting and bullbaiting, and it is believed that Hooper’s Judge may have been imported from England for that very purpose. Luckily, Mother Nature had other intentions, and Hooper’s Judge was bred with a white female of unknown origin. Several generations of dogs later (and probably with some French Bulldog crossing), the modern Boston Terrier was born.
