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.

Are blue Boston Terrier dogs pure bred?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Yes they are, however, they are not show-worthy coloration as the AKC, CKC, UKC, ect only allow black and white as well as liver and white for the Boston Terrier. The blue coloration comes from a genetic deformity that dilutes the black gene so that the dog appears to be blue.

Are Boston Terriers born with bobbed tails or do they cut them? How do you potty train without the crate? What foods should I not feed her?

4 Comments

Anonymous

Boston Terrier's have their tails docked at between birth and 3 days old. If you do not want to use a crate to potty train, then use the 2 hour method. Have the puppy attached by a long leash to you at all times and set a timer to go off every 2 hours. Take your puppy out to use the bathroom every time that timer goes off and reward your puppy with food and praise. It took only 1 week to fully potty train my dogs like that. You should feed your dog a high grade grain-free puppy food. Do not feed her table scraps, cooked bones, raw potato, garlic or onions.

It's a disqualifying fault in the AKC standard to alter a dogs tail. Other DQ's are blue eye (s), duddly nose, any color other than black & white, brindle & white and seal ( black dog with red sheen in the sun ), and again the altered tail. If you are not breeding for the standard then what?

Bostonian are born with the short tail, their tails should not have to be docked. Other breeds that required tails to be docked, we did that when their eyes were opened. We tied them off instead of cutting.

Pure bred Boston Terriers are born with short curly tails. You do not have to dock them. They are quick to learn and easy to house train.

1 Comment

There are many websites that will help you with basic questions you should ask your breeder before buying a puppy. But some main ones to think of are: Puppies should be registered and not cost more for registration, only if you are getting breeding rights. Breeder should have both parents on hand and allow you to see them/spend time with them. Both parents should have had their health checks and you should be able to see those documents. You should be allowed to see where the puppies are growing up/how the dogs live. Your breeder should be breeding for the right reasons, breeding the two dogs to better the breed, so as why they chose those two dogs. If they said that they just looked nice together, that's a big red flag. The breeder should be able to give you references of past puppies and allow you to talk to their vet. The breeder should also ask you just as many questions as you ask him/her, they should want to know where their puppies are going.

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.

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

1 Comment

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

Anonymous

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.

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.

Boston Terrier's will bleed for about 7-10 days usually, then after that they will be in 'standing heat' meaning ready to be breed, for around 7-10 more days. you can expect this to go on every 6 months roughly. DO NOT LET THEM NEAR A MALE WHEN THEY STOP BLEEDING, this is the time they are actually ready to be breed.

Some Boston's can be allergic to as little as their own dog food some can be allergic to the rice some to other ingredients in dog food which can cause them to lick their paws i would suggest looking into a dog food with less fillers if your close to a pet store ask them but i recommend blue or science diet.

Not if you're tent camping. They don't have an undercoat, which means they can be as susceptible to the cold as a small child....wearing just a sweater. Boston's love to go outside and play, but they cool off quick and begin shivering!

YES! (i wish people would do their homework before they answer). Long hair is a recessive gene in BTs, it's pretty rare. If you need proof please go to the official CKC webpage (CKC stands for Canadian Kennel Club, just as the AKC stands for the American Kennel Club and is considered the gold standard in describing a show-quality breed) www.ckc.ca webpage acknowledges long haired bostons. Hope this helps!

It ranges truthfully but Boston Terriers usually hit their menses between 7 months to a year old my girl didn't till she was 11 months old like clock work. if you are planing on breeding her i hope you have all details before hand since Bostons are breed to have the distinctive round head almost 92% have to be born via cesarean section and that can be costly if she goes into labor after hours and have to rush to a emergency vet. upwards of 1500. so please think before you breed.
