Breed Details

General

The Boston Cattle Dog is the result of cross between the Australian Cattle dog and the Boston Terrier purebreds. Their general characteristics depend on the dominant genes from their parent breeds.

Color

Their can be a variety of colours for this breed. Most common being black and white, brown and white, black with white patches and many other colours.

Personality

They can inherit the Boston Terrier's perfect family dog personality traits as well as Australian Cattle dog's herding and strong personality traits.
