The Boston Terrier, as a matter of fact, is the first breed to originate in the United States. Around 1870, Robert C. Hooper of Boston purchased a dog named Judge from Edward Burnett. He was part-Bull and part-Terrier lineage. Hooper's Judge is directly related to the original Bull and Terrier breeds of the 19th and 20th centuries. Judge is the result of modern English Bulldogs being crossed into Terriers during the 1800s. With that being said, the Boston Terrier is the official mascot of the city of Boston.
