So, I bought this puppy from someone who says that he is pure bread, and he even has papers (AKC). He arrives on Friday, and I am really excited, but there is one thing bugging me...his nose. He is a Boston terrier, and it just seems too long to me. I read the breed standards on the AKC website, and it states that the nose should be no longer than 1/3 of the size of the head. Now, I have only seen pictures, but it seems to be longer than that. It just does not look like the typical Boston nose. It is just completely throwing me off, even though he is AKC registered. Can a vet be able to tell if it is pure bread or not? Or do I have to do some sort of testing for that?

I don't really mind it if he isn't since I chose him based on his personality traits and his looks not because he is a certain breed. It has just kind of stayed in the back of my mind for the last few days.
