Boston Terrier | The Beginnings
Of course, as a Boston lover, you know that back in 1865, Robert C. Hooper bought an English Bulldog–white English Terrier cross, who was the foundation of the Boston Terrier breed. The snappy dark brindle dog with the white flashy markings became known as Hooper's Judge. Judge was bred to local terrier types and due to his prepotency as a stud, a type was quickly set.
The French Bulldog Influence
The Boston Terrier of that era belonged to the working class and the French Bulldog was a dog of the upper classes. Often the hired help (what is a politically correct term for workers back then - servants? IDK) would take the French Bulldog boys for a "walk" to have a dalliance with the Boston Terrier girls! Thus, the Frenchie influence was introduced to early Boston Terriers.
They were called Round-Headed Bull and Terrier at this time. Thankfully, by 1891 they were called the Boston Terrier.
