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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Boston Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Every breeder is different, as they will calculate how much is costs to raise/rear the sire and dam, to title the sire and dam, to get the health checks done for both sire and dam as well as then breeding and raising/rearing a little of puppies. But the average price of a Boston Terrier puppy from a qualified, responsible, respectable and knowledgeable breed is between $1300.00 - $2000.00. Please note: Cheap puppies are not cheaper in the long run.

The Average Life span of a Boston Terrier is between 11 to 15 years but with any animal that can fluctuate depending on health issues or how they are raised i have seen some Bostons live up to 17 years were as i have seen some live only 8. The Better they are raised and treated the longer they can live.

Certification of papers on red boston terrier How do you get certification papers to certify my red boston terrier?

1 Comment

Anonymous

If your got your dog from a qualified and reputable breeder, the puppy should come with papers. If he/she did not, then that is a red flag. Contact your breeder and make sure that the sire and dam of the puppy are registered with a legal Kennel Club. If they are not, then you can not certify your dog.

The puppy should be bottle fed until he/she is at least 4 - 5 weeks old. At that time, you can start moving the pup to gruel. In that case, you allow the pup to eat as much as he/she wants at all times. Fresh gruel should be available at all times for the pup.

how much and how often should you feed your boston terrier, she is 8 months old

1 Comment

There are different answers to this question however, I will tell you what I did for our boston terrier pup. Starting out I fed him 4 times a day in smaller portions than I would if I had fed him 3 times a day. I did this because I wanted to teach him moderation. After about 6 months I began leaving the bowl out and noticed he would eat when he was hungry and not because it was there. I judged this based on the amount of food left in the bowl. He lived to be 15 years old, never any health issues nor was he ever over or under weight. The main thing people need to understand is that each puppy is different as each child is different, it is all truly based on the sweet beautiful puppy's personality. You have to find what works for you and your pup.

is there a such dog as a Toy Boston Terrier? I am looking for a tiny Boston Terrier.

Some are smaller but there is no toy bostons. The word toy is an adjective describing the possible size. In general, teacup/toy like words are used far less by reputable breeders.... Once used widely as a marketing tactic.
