Boston Terrier

 

The perfect dog for any formal occasion, the Boston Terrier comes dressed to impress. The tuxedo-like black and white markings make the Boston Terrier a fancy canine companion indeed and the brindle and brown varieties are no less stunning. She's also doggedly devoted, if you'll pardon the pun. No wonder this breed is so wildly popular!

These sturdy, small-sized, and medium-energy dogs can grow to between 10-25 pounds and live an average of 13-15 years. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club—in fact, they were the the first American Kennel Club-recognized dog to be bred in the United States. Boston Terriers are classified as a member of the Non-Sporting group.
