Bone Beneath – Boston Terrier Skull

variants_large_7404The little skull belongs to the Boston Terrier. This wee bugger was originally bred for the fighting pits but it’s sunny disposition made it more popular with homeowners. This breed of dog is also known as the ‘American Gentleman’ for their tuxedo like black and white markings.

The cross-breading of this species has resulted in a almost absent rostrum. This causes the animal difficulty with breathing. The last image depicts a Boston Terrier Skull with signs of severe periodontal disease. This skull can be bought from Skulls Unlimited for $195.
