The Haggerty Spot is a mark that some Boston Terrier dogs have on top of their heads. It is also known as the Haggerty dot.
It's called the Haggerty Spot because it's coming from one of the first Boston Terrier lines owned by the Haggerty's family back in the 1900s. Many of their Bostons were born with the spot on top of their heads. This marking ended up being associated with their Boston Terrier line. Nowadays, most Boston Terrier dogs who have this marking can be traced to the Haggerty's Boston Terrier line.
While the Haggerty Spot is a unique and distinct marking, it is not a required or recognized trait in the Boston Terrier breed standard. The American Kennel Club (AKC) recognizes only a specific set of coat colors and patterns for Boston Terriers, and the Haggerty Spot is not one of them.
However, many Boston Terrier enthusiasts and breeders consider the Haggerty Spot to be a desirable trait. It is often seen as a sign of a purebred Boston Terrier with a strong lineage.
The Haggerty Spot is also sometimes referred to as a "kiss mark" or "angel kiss," and some owners believe it brings good luck to their dogs.
