When coming up with the Boston Terrier names on this page, we tried to take into account the many attributes of this energetic dog. The fact that it’s interesting history as a breed also played a role when picking these names as we realized this was no ordinary dog we were dealing with.
Did you know…
-This dog was originally bred to hunt rats in coal mines and factories, as well as a fighting dog. Hard to fathom that any canine was used for such things, but thankfully that’s in the past.
-That it’s a cross between the French and English Bulldog and other fighting Bull Terriers such as the currently extinct English White Terrier.
-The Boston Terrier can be a bit aggressive towards other animals due to it’s breeding, but this can be controlled with proper training.
Combine all the above with a quirky sense of humor this pup has, as well as it being a great family pal, is it any wonder why we felt this pooch deserves a Boston Terrier names page dedicated to just this breed?
