I wanted to do another tutorial on a popular dog breed that most folks would be familiar with when seen at first glance. As I was thinking I began reading my e-mails at the same time. I came across a request that asked me to make tutorial on "how to draw a Boston Terrier", step by step. The idea was great because I know how popular these small dogs are. These dogs are not only very cool in appearance; they are also wicked cool pooches to own. Their individual personalities make them one of the most desired terrier breeds around. I sometimes get the Boston terrier mixed up with the French bulldog. It’s easy to confuse the two breeds because they look so similar. If you look at the history behind the Boston terrier, I think you will find that there are some interesting facts. For one, did you know that these terriers where actually bred down from the American pit-bull? It’s true, the Boston terrier used to weigh around forty pounds, and they were called Olde Boston Bulldogge. But when the down breeding started, the once pit fighters had a new shorter, slender, more desirable look. Their temperament also depleted from being semi aggressive and unpredictable, to mellow and loving. I’m not saying that all pit-bulls are aggressive dogs; they just have that trait in their blood because they are still considered to be fighting dogs. The end line is this; the Boston terrier is one of the few breeds that was originated from the United States, and if it wasn’t for the wealthy people of Boston Massachusetts, this breed would never have come about. The Boston terrier is a breed that was developed from a constant cross mating of the original Boston terrier with the English bulldog. The lesson will be rather simple, but you may come across some difficulty along the way if you are a beginning artist. Have fun with drawing a Boston terrier, I will be back with more drawing fun.
