The Boston terrier dog breed originated around 1875 in the United state, when Robert C. Hooper of Boston purchased from Edward Burnett a dog named Judge (known later as Hooper’s Judge), which was of a bull and terrier type lineage. Hooper’s Judge is directly related to the original bull and terrier breeds of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Hence,the American Kennel Club cites see’s Hooper’s Judge as the ancestor of all true modern Boston Terriers. Judge weighed about 32 pounds (15 kg) and Judge was bred to Burnett’s Gyp (or Kate). Gyp was a white bulldog-type female, owned by Edward Burnett, of Southboro, Massachusetts.
