Boston Terrier VS French Bulldog
The Boston Terrier originated in Boston, Massachusetts, in the late 19th century, by combining the English White Terrier with the English Bulldog, and was originally called the Boston Bull. The English White Terrier as a breed is currently thought to be extinct. Boston Terriers were first acknowledged by the American Kennel Club in 1893.
The Boston Terrier is a friendly and lively dog. The breed has an excellent disposition and a high degree of intelligence, which makes the Boston Terrier an incomparable companion.
The Boston Terrier is a lively, highly intelligent, smooth coated, short-headed, compactly built, short-tailed, well balanced dog, brindle, seal or black in color and evenly marked with white. The head is in proportion to the size of the dog and the expression indicates a high degree of intelligence.
The body is rather short and well knit, the limbs strong and neatly turned, the tail is short and no feature is so prominent that the dog appears badly proportioned. The dog conveys an impression of determination, strength and activity, with style of a high order; carriage easy and graceful.
Speculations abound on the origin of the French Bulldog. The most popular opinion is that the breed originated from the miniature, or toy, Bulldog brought to France by the Nottingham lace workers during the industrial revolution and economic crisis in England. Others believe the French Bulldog descended from the Chincha Bulldog, which lived in ancient Peru. The French Bulldog first appeared in the U.S. in 1896 at the Westminster Kennel Club's show in New York, and was first registered by the American Kennel Club in 1898 in the non-sporting dog group. Britain accepted the breeds club membership in 1912.
Playful, affectionate, and exceptionally good natured, the French Bulldog, or "Frenchie," is bred primarily as a companion pet. But Frenchies also make good watchdogs. Compact and muscular, with a small to medium build, they are a good choice for small living spaces. Frenchies are highly trainable and intelligent, and are happiest when close to their human family. They are excellent with children and compatible with other pets. They desire a lot of attention from their loved ones.

As you may see both the French bulldog and the Boston terrier are beautiful (they even resemble as look and character), friendly, affectionate dogs and they are great companions.
