Don't misunderstand... all of these dogs
who are disqualified from the Boston
Terrier standard and the show ring are
perfectly wonderful pets.
Unexpected things happen and
occasionally a reputable show breeder will
end up with a surprise red or blue out of a
litter. However these dogs should be
spayed/neutered and placed in a pet
home, not used in a breeding program
that ignores the rules of the breed.
This girl to the right was pulled from a
puppy mill with dead puppies inside of
her. She would have died if she had not
been rescued. Thankfully she now has a
great home with a show breeder who had
the surgery done to save her life, spayed
her, and now spoils her. Show breeders
are not trying to "exterminate" Bostons of
a disqualifying color, their concern is
about irresponsible breeding practices
being promoted for the sake of puppy
Any Boston, including standard colored, can be the target of puppy mills or profit
breeders. Just because a Boston is of the correct color does not mean it has
been bred responsibly either. But promotion of these Disqualified Colors has
only increased their marketability and spurred profit breeders & puppy mills to
jump on the bandwagon.
The dogs to the right are only a fraction of those displayed on the public sale
pages of Puppyfind on the day this website was made. The colored puppy
market has exploded to nearly half of the hundreds of Boston Terrier puppies
marketed on that website every single day.
Buying from someone who purposely breeds against standard is only
encouraging those who have no intention of improving the Boston Terrier
breed. You are only increasing the problem and lining the pockets of those who
are profit driven. If you are purchasing a Boston Terrier, please insist that the
breeder you deal with is breeding to improve and preserve the breed as it is
intended to be bred and preserved. Don't settle for less than what a Boston
Terrier is supposed to look like as designated by the forefathers of the breed
many decades ago.
NOTE: There is a claim on many websites belonging to breeders of
Disqualified Colored Bostons that states that it was common practice, even
until recently, for breeders to cull by killing any puppies who were born
the wrong color.
This is absolutely UNTRUE. The phrase "cull" can mean to spay/neuter and
place puppies in a pet home, thereby removing them from a breeding
program. "Cull" does not automatically mean "kill". Any show breeder will
tell you that they and the breeders they know are involved for the love of
these fun little dogs and do not have the heart, nor ever would, to kill a
puppy because of its color.
