Boglen Terrier Breed History

To determine the history of the Boglen Terrier, you have to look at the history of the parent breeds, the Beagle and the Boston Terrier. The Beagle is thought to have originated in 1475 but it is not documented well so there are many stories. This breed is thought to have come from pack hounds used in England before the Roman times and were a mix between English Hounds and the Harrier. Some say the name Beagle means “open throat” to describe the way the Beagle bays. Others say Beagle is a Celtic or Old English name for small and they were indeed called “pocket-sized” dogs at one time. At that time, in the 19th century, there were different sized Beagles and some were only about nine inches tall. Hunters would actually carry their dogs in their pockets when going hunting. They came to the United States in 1642 and were recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1885. They are now the 5th most popular dog breed in the United States. Around 1870, a Bostonian man imported a dog named Judge into Boston and this is the original ancestor to the Boston Terriers. Another story claims that the Boston Terrier was produced by coachmen who bred their dogs with their wealthy employers’ dogs in 1865. The mix of the Bulldog and English White Terrier are thought to have been the two breeds that started the Boston Terrier breed. The Boston Terrier was accepted by the AKC in 1893 and they are the 21st most popular dogs in the United States.

Boglen Terrier Breed Appearance

Boglen Terriers usually look similar to a Boxer with a small and muscular body, long legs, a large square head, slightly protruding eyes, big floppy ears, and a square muzzle. Their front legs are actually a lot longer than the back legs and they have huge feet for such a small dog. The tail is long but some owners dock their tail to make them look more like a Boston Terrier. Their coat is short and smooth, usually white with either black, brown, or brindle although they have also been seen in other colors such as tan, orange, and red. However, because the Boglen Terrier is a hybrid breed, the appearance can vary depending on which parent breed the dog takes after the most.

Boglen Terrier Breed Maintenance

The Boglen Terrier does not need much maintenance due to its short smooth coat. A thorough brushing with a stiff bristle brush once or twice a week is all that is necessary to keep your dog’s fur and skin healthy and shedding to a minimum. They tend to shed more when nervous so try to keep your pet from getting stressed. Dental problems can be an issue with small dogs so it is important that you brush their teeth with a toothpaste made especially for dogs. Their ears should be cleaned once a week and nails trimmed when needed. Bathing is only required when absolutely necessary because too many baths can deplete the oils from the skin.

Boglen Terrier Activity Requirements

Because both parent breeds are known to be friendly and lovable, the Boglen Terrier is an exceptionally good family pet. In fact, they do well in large families because they love to interact with a lot of people. The Boglen Terrier is also a protective pet that makes an excellent watch dog because they are brave and alert at all times. They do not like to be alone so if you are not home most of the time, the Boglen Terrier may not be the best choice for you. They need to be with people and will act out if left alone. This breed gets along well with other pets as well as children.

We are very excited with Oliver, he's our first dog as a family, and we have him since he was just one month old. He is full of energy all the time, which in some way it's very nice because now I have to make a lot of exercise with him, good for me and good for him, a win-win with Oliver. But he is very crazy when people come to visit and try to pet him, I hope he eventually becomes more polite with other people to enjoy.

My pup is very active and wants all the attention in the world. He plays with other dogs like he is a giant. Super friendly but he does have his feisty and spontaneous side, which makes him a little challenging to train. But is definitely showing signs of learning at such a young age.

I never heard of a boglen, but glad we found her. She has a lot of personality and certainly some sass. But she is such a cuddle bug. Always wants to be in a lap.
