    We named our boston terrier Angel. On the top of her forehead she has a small black dot. It kindda looks like a halo.

    • allison maynard

      That black spot is called a “Haggerty Spot”. (my BT has one too – right in the middle of his white stripe!). The name goes back to one of the families that were breeders years, and years ago. Many of their puppies were born with the mark – hence – the Haggerty spot. I’ve heard it’s a desirable mark – in the show circle.
