Catfish the Boston Terrier

They call me Catfish.

Usually I prefer the driver’s seat.

I’m a middle-aged bully breed dog. I’m a Boston Terrier.

My snub-nosed breed is known for being friendly and gentle. We make great family pets.

In fact, this bug-eyed dog has spent a lot of days in the company of schoolchildren under the supervision of my bus drivin’ human (aka Crystal’s aunt Sandy).

I love kids almost as much as I love gemstone-studded collars.

It’s hard to believe that anyone could have a problem with Boston Terriers. But as relatives of other bulldogs, including our much maligned cousins the pit bulls, we do face occasional discrimination.

A few years ago, the New York City Housing Authority tried to ban Boston Terriers.

And until late last year, the Central Missouri Humane Society had a 20-year-old policy against adopting out bully breed dogs, including my kind.

Ain’t that just crazy?

Do you have a Boston Terrier story? If so, share it in the comments below.

About Crystal K. Wiebe

I live with two formerly wayward dogs, and helping other dogs find new homes is my passion. I recently founded the company Beer Paws to help celebrate the relationship between people and pets.
