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.

I have Boston Terrier puppies for sale! See My Profile
My husband and I have the pleasure of living in the country and raining boston terriers. My husband works and I work from home and so we are very blessed to have a houseful of dogs and friends at any given time. We raise both the traditional colors ( black and white still my favorite) and some of the newer rare colors. We specialize in blue and champagne as well as the reds and occasionally a chocolate. The puppies are all raised in our home and underfoot in the office until they get older and then go to our back door room with heat and a/c and outdoor yards for them to play in. We have comforters on our couches and vinyl flooring so we truly live with our doggies. please see our website. Thanks, Linda

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.

My Boston Terrier puppy who's 10 weeks old and seems to greatly favor me over my husband and kids. Aren't Boston Terriers considered a friendly family companion? What explains why he favors me over anyone else in our family?

Your Boston Terrier puppy is only 10 weeks old. That is why he favors you. You are most likely the person who feeds him, is home all day with him and spends your time with him. Puppies who were just taken away from their mothers are very sad and scared. They need someone to cuddle and be comforted by. This normally is done by the mother of the house. Have your husband and children spend more time with the pup, let them feed him and in no time he will be a happy family dog.

Are blue Boston Terrier dogs purebred?

Yes, however, they are not show-worthy coloration as the AKC, CKC, UKC only allows 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?

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 dog's tail. Other disqualifications are blue eyes, a dudley nose, any color other than black & white, brindle & white and seal (black dog with a 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.

Purebred 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.
