A Boston Terrier named Bruschi has been given the title of Dog with the Biggest Eyes by the Guinness Book of World Records. Pug owners may say Bruschi is just an exception, but Boston Terriers definitely sport huge globes! Terriers were bred to herd and hunt, and their furbulous eyes`do the job, even if they've never been on a farm or in a field!
It seems many of the world's biggest-eyed puppers come from Asia, and the Shih Tzu is no exception. The breed's shiny, marble-like orbs peer out at you through their silky forehead hair, which owners often tie up with a bow! Used in Tibet as sentinels against intruders in Imperial palaces, this toy-sized bundle nicknamed "Lion Dog" makes a companionable, sometimes silly, pet - with big eyes!
