America might be late to the table when it comes to dog breeding, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some unique breeds from right here in the old US of A!

1.      Boston Terrier – This seems like a no brainer, huh?  Well, we often say the names of dogs, but don’t always know the origin or pay really close attention.  The Boston Terrier is one of the American breeds of dogs, originating in Boston, Massachusetts.  They are nicknamed the “American Gentleman.”  How stinkin’ cute is that? 2.     American Pit Bull Terrier – Dun, dun, dun…Yeah, we know.  These canines are famous not always for the best reasons, but let us shine some light on one of the top American breeds of dogs.  They get a bad rep, because of some bad owners. Pit Bulls are loyal, loving, clown dogs and they are good with kids. They are more than their stereotypes! 3.     Toy Fox Terrier – Terrier is the theme here!  These toy pups are closely related to Chihuahuas and Smooth Fox Terriers.  They were bred and raised to protect barns and properties from rats and other small vermin. 4.     American Bulldog – These strong and sturdy dogs can’t be mistaken for the English or French Bulldogs.  Of the American breeds of the dogs, American Bulldog are social, active, family friendly dogs.  They resemble the American Pit Bull and have similar sweet dispositions and make wonderful family pets! 5.     American Eskimo Dog – The white, fluffy coat of this dog is standout.  They are lively and entertaining dogs.
