Wallis Simpson (wife of Edward the 8th) with a Pit Bull or similar?

Wallis Simpson, who married Edward the 8th, had many dogs. Does anyone know the breed of this one. I would say maybe Boston Terrier, but it does not have any white on its head.

2. Maybe just a mutt. Otherwise aren't the others Cairn terriers.

Like Toto.

5. Yes, I think it is French bulldog. Thanks!






The French Bulldog (French: bouledogue or bouledogue franšais) is a breed of domestic dog, bred to be companion dogs. The breed is the result of a cross between Toy Bulldogs imported from England, and local ratters in Paris, France, in the 1800s. They are stocky, compact dogs with a friendly, mild-mannered temperament.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Bulldog



The Boston terrier breed originated around 1875, when Robert C. Hooper of Boston purchased from Edward Burnett a dog named Judge (known later as Hooper's Judge), which was of a Bulldog and the now-extinct white English Terrier. Hooper's Judge is directly related to the original bull and terrier breeds of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The American Kennel Club cites Hooper's Judge as the ancestor of all true modern Boston Terriers.

6. Assuming that first photograph's dog is purebred,

it's important to remember that breeds have changed dramatically in the past century.

Here are some links:

Unfortunately, breeding has not been a good thing for most breeds.

8. I read an entire book a year or two ago on this topic.

I'm generally not a huge dog person myself, but reading about what modern breeding has done to wonderful dogs is heartbreaking.
