Overview
As their name implies, this breed was developed in Boston, Massachusetts. Originally weighing up to 44 pounds, the Boston Terrier was bred down from the bull and terrier pit-fighting breeds. This breed has the distinction of being the first non-sporting dog to be bred in America.
Character
The Boston Terrier is compact, sturdy, and small but is not delicate or fragile. This breed has a kind and gentle nature and is often referred to as the American Gentleman. They are lively, high-spirited, and playful. This dapper dog is a delightful combination of determination, strength, balance, and gracefulness.

Does your Boston Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Highly intelligent, alert, and enthusiastic, the Boston Terrier is affectionate and loyal. This breed is quite animated and has a lovely sense of humor. They thrive on human interaction and on being an integral part of the family. They do best in a home with children over the age of eight years and are exceedingly good with the elderly. They will generally get along with non-canine pets, although males may fight with other dogs. The Boston Terrier has a very sensitive nature and will be affected either positively or negatively by tone of voice or the home atmosphere and environment.
Care
Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush will minimize loose hair. This breed should be bathed only when absolutely necessary using a mild shampoo. The Boston Terrier has a tendency to drool so frequent wiping of the face is recommended. They eyes and ears need to be checked and cleaned on a regular basis. Boston Terriers are prone to such health issues as breathing difficulties, heart and skin tumors, and eye injuries. They do not adapt well to weather extremes.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Boston Terrier has a coat that is fine in texture, short, glossy, and smooth. The color of the coat comes in black with white markings, seal, and brindle. Occasionally the coat will come in brown with white markings. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
The Boston Terrier is eager and quick to learn. They may be difficult to housebreak and the crate training method is recommended. Due to their highly sensitive nature harsh and heavy-handed methods must never be used. This breed responds to praise, fairness, firmness, patience, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Boston Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Relatively inactive indoors, the Boston Terrier is quite content to just be with the family at all times. However, regular daily exercise is a must to keep this breed fit and in shape. They benefit from and enjoy securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and free play in a safely fenced area. Boston Terriers do well in an apartment, condominium, or city dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise, attention, and stimulation. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

My 1 1/2 year old Boston started a few months ago with a cough when we come home or when she is excited. It almost sounds like she isn't going to get her breathe is this normal?

Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome is the medical term related to various upper airway problems found in short-nosed, flat-faced dog breeds such as the Boston Terrier. A brachycephalic (meaning to having a short, broad head) breed may experience partial obstruction of the upper airway due to narrowed nostrils, an overly long soft palate, or collapse of the voice box (also known as the larynx). Breathing difficulties may also occur because of an abnormally small windpipe (or trachea). What could be happening when your Boston gets over-excited is that she is breathing too quickly and getting a partial obstruction which is making her cough. Contact your vet and take her in to rule out any medical problem that can be fixed and then start training her to be calm when you arrive back home. Start by ignoring her when you come home, no looking at her and no touching her until she is calm and then give her affection. If she becomes excited again, then stand your ground and ignore her until she has calmed down. This will take some time, but soon she will be able to control her how excited she is when you return.

Dew Claws: Remove or not? How old is "too old" for this procedure?

Dew claws are there for a reason, they are your dogs 'ice picks' and the only way that dogs can pull themselves up/out of places if they fall in. Such as ice, mud, rocky area, ect. If the dew claw is going to be removed, it is best to remove it when the dog is being spayed/neutered as then the dog is already out. But if your dog is already fixed, it is best to keep them and just make sure they are clipped.

I have 3 Boston terriers and they all don't really get along. When one is eating its food the others come and eat in his bowl too. Then they start yapping at each other! I don't know how to fix this.

Separate the dogs when food is around. Terrier's are scrappy and can be territorial about their food. Make sure all of your dogs are well exercised and have their own space that the other dogs can not bother the in. If any are not spayed/neutered, get them fixed so that they are calmer and less frustrated. Contact a local positive reinforcement trainer if any problems continue to occur.

Are Boston Terriers easy to train? Can they live in an apartment?

The Boston Terrier is considered a 5 - 10 on the train-ability scale. Meaning that they need consistent, firm training as they learn at a moderate rate. Signing up for puppy-obedience and basic obedience classes with a Positive Reinforcement trainer is a great start to be well on your way to having an obedient Boston Terrier. The Boston Terrier can easily live in an apartment as long as the dog is exercised every day. An hour to an hour and a half a day on average is perfect for this breed. A forty-five-minute brisk walk, romp at the dog park, bike ride or jog in the morning and then again at night will keep your Boston happy and healthy for years and years.

My Aunt and Uncle have 2 Boston Terrier and 3 kids. The kids are around them all the time, but when I go over there the dogs seem to love me more than the kids they live with. They sleep with me and follow me around, and are much nicer to me than the other kids. I want to know why they show favoritism and why they sleep under the covers.

Most likely because the dogs live with the other kids all the time, those kids don't dote on the dogs very often anymore. Since you are new, someone exciting and you give the dogs attention, they will follow you around and play favorites with you because you are fun! Boston Terriers love having fun and need lots of stimulation, so if the kids ignore the dogs most of the time, those kids are not fun, you are. As for sleeping under the covers, the Boston Terrier loves to snuggle/cuddle with their owners or people they like and the covers are warm and comfy.
