The *Boston Terrier* is a breed of dog originating in the United States.
This "American Gentleman" was accepted in 1893 by the American Kennel Club
as a non-sporting breed.^[2] Color and markings are important when
distinguishing this breed to the AKC standard. They should be either black,
brindle or seal with white markings.^[3]^[4] Bostons are small and compact
with a short tail and erect ears. The AKC says they are highly intelligent
and very easily trained.^[5] They are friendly and can be stubborn at
times. The average life span of a Boston is around 11 to 15 years, though
some can live well into their teens.^[6]

The American Kennel Club ranked the Boston Terrier as the 23rd most popular
pure-breed in the United States in 2012 and 2013.^[7]
