• Boston Terriers are mostly seen in classic brindle, seal or
    black body and white trim. Surprisingly, Boston Terriers
    actually can come in an array of bright, attractive colors and
    patterns...if you can find them!  The only colors defined in
    the AKC standard are brindle, black, and seal (all others are
    excluded) as a result, few people know RED, FAWN, LILAC,
    CREAM, BLUE and even TRICOLOR  exist among pet
    Bostons. Reds and chocolates are the most common among
    the non-traditional colors, blues are hard to find, cream is
    quite "exotic" with few in existence, and there has been only
    one chocolate/tan/white tricolor identified to my knowledge.
    Non-standard colors represent a very tiny fraction of the
    Boston Terrier breed population. These distinctive colors
    and markings are, "paws down", our favorite!
  • Puzzled by the dazzling array of colors? For better
    understanding go to:Color DNA
  • Also: Color Genetics in Dogs & other animals
  • It is possible to have a DNA test to determine what an
    individual dog's color is genetically. Two dogs can look
    nearly identical in color, yet the genes may be totally
    different. There is only one way to know with certainty what
    your dog is genetically because Bostons colors haven't
    been established formally by DNA tests the way some
    breeds have. Coat Color DNA Test

  • We do not use the term "disqualifying"  because they are  
    perfectly qualified for the purpose for which we breed
    them... for the ultimate in companionship!  We use the

  • Many devoutly traditional Boston breeders and fanciers hold
    the opinion that such descriptions are fraudulent and
    misleading. They think  these words are designed to dupe
    the public into thinking colorful dogs have value and
    appeal when, in their opinion they do not, and should be
    completely eliminated. It is the opinion of some people that
    only dogs conforming exceptionally well to the show
    standard (show quality) in every way, should ever be bred.
    No "pet quality" dogs should  reproduce, period.  In spite of
    this, the overwhelming majority of people simply want a
    pleasing and attractive pet. "Show" buyers/breeders still
    represent just a tiny fraction of dog lovers although their
    numbers are growing. Those who believe only dogs
    conforming to the standard in every way are worthy of
    breeding, sincerely believe they know what is best for the
    breed(s) they represent and for the dog-loving public in

    different terminology. But some say it is two colors (or
    maybe just two shades of same color). it is a dilute of red

Red, (aka chocolate), fawn, cream, blue, and lilac are
the colored Bostons we specialize in. We think you will
find these colors at least as attractive as the standard
colors and markings with which we are so familiar!.**
