"The DanBar Difference"
I breed AKC standard Boston terriers, but I call them "old fashioned" because I am so disgusted with what the show-ring folks have done to this wonderful breed. To the right you see how show-ring fad has resulted in a dog with NO muzzle. This has resulted in numerous serious health issues. Why would anyone who professes to "love" a dog breed these issues into a dog breed?
The DanBar difference is that I breed the dog as the original founders described it; a healthy, capable, miniature bull and terrier mix. Muzzles are long enough so that my Bostons can run and play - even in our hot weather, without distress. Hips, elbows, spines - all x-ray checked on breeding dogs to make sure they are not passing on any issues that could cause a pup discomfort later in life.
The standard describes the muzzle as "short, wide and deep" and up to 1/3 the length of the skull. In NO WAY does the dog pictured to the upper right, a famous champion, have a muzzle that fits this description. I totally reject breeding dogs for extremely short muzzles - especially just for show wins! These dogs suffer all their lives, and I hope you don't support it either. How could anyone?
Because they are little bulldogs, some few Bostons come with "rose" ears such as pictured at right. Personally, I prefer this to an upright ear. Many show Bostons are cropped to make their ears stand. I don't crop mine, so a rose ear is possible. I love rose ears!
I have an extensive area on this site concerning the health of the Boston terrier, and the health testing done to try and restore "normal" health standards to this wonderful breed.
