Did you know ?


The gait of the Boston Terrier is sure-footed, characterized by forelegs and hindlegs that move straight ahead in perfect rhythm, pacing with ease and power.

Boston Terriers are lively, highly intelligent dogs that have a well-earned reputation as great companions. They convey an impression of determination strength and activity, with great style, moving with freedom and grace. The balance between color and white markings is a particularly distinctive characteristic of the breed.


Boston Terrier In a few words :

  • Head

    Square skull, flat on top, free from wrinkles, abrupt forehead, well defined stop.


  • Body

    Appearing short and square, with level topline, short back, croup slightly curved towards the base of the tail.


  • Coat

    Brindle, “seal” or black with mandatory white muzzle band, white blaze between the eyes, white marking on the forechest.


  • Ears

    Small, carried erect, set as close as possible to the upper edges of the skull.


  • Tail

    Set low, short, fine, tapering to the tip, straight or screw, never carried downward.


  • Hair

    Short, smooth, glossy, fine texture.



Boston terriers are sturdy dogs that should never appear either spindly or coarse. The balance between bone and muscle must enhance the dog’s weight and overall build. Particular attention should be given to balance, expression, color and white markings to ensure an overall elegant look. The short, well knit body together with the unique square head and jaw and the striking white markings produce an especially dapper and charming American original.
