BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Boston Terrier originated in Boston and were bred to fight other dogs for sport. They are a mixture of the English White Terrier, French Bulldog and the English Bulldog but have been bred smaller and smaller to attain their current size! Today the Boston Terrier is used primarily for companionship to people. This breed has a very toned little body with a small head and a flat, pushed-in muzzle. Their ears are triangular and pricked upward giving them a constant alert look. The Boston Terrier has long legs that are athletic and muscular giving them their stamina and speed. Naturally their tail is short and stubby like that of a boxer. The Boston Terrier is a polite, sweet and goofy little dog that is devoted to their families. They are clever and spend their days playing or exploring! This breed will be great for families because they adore children, and will get along with other dogs and smaller pets.

COLOR
The Boston Terrier will come in a brindle, medium brown, or black and all will be accompanied with white markings on their face, legs, paws and chest.

COAT
The Boston Terrier has a very short, hard coat that is smooth to the touch. They will need weekly brushing just to remove the dead fur from their coats.

PERSONALITY
The Boston Terrier is a fun loving breed that likes to clown around. They are energetic, happy-go-lucky dogs that literally live for their owners. Characteristically, this breed is loyal and friendly but there might be some friction between them and other dogs of the same sex. Their popularity started off in the United States and quickly spread throughout the world because their personalities and appearance are appealing to people of many lifestyles. Despite the fact that the Boston Terrier can be a bit stubborn, they tend to pick up basic obedience commands quickly and their knowledge of this will stay with them throughout their lives. They are known to love being held but also enjoy time to themselves making them a well rounded dog.

CARE
This breed will need very minimal grooming because their coat is short and they keep themselves quite clean as it is. Brushing once per week and bathing every 2 months will be perfect for this dog's coat. The Boston Terrier is prone to skin allergies, heart conditions (due to their deep chest), breathing difficulties (due to their pushed in face) and luxating patella's. They are also prone to a few eye ailments such as Cherry eye, and cataracts.

TRAINING
The Boston Terrier is a loving breed that wants nothing but to please their masters, making their trainability level quite easy. These dogs are incredibly clever and will be able to be taught many tricks as well as different trials of training such as agility! Boston Terriers are notorious for being harder to housetrain but this can be taught quickly if the owner is consistent and clear.

ACTIVITY
The Boston Terrier will need about half an hour of exercise per day to keep them tired out! Either time spent in an off-leash dog park or on a longer walk will be perfect. These dogs love to play and will burn off their energy quicker if they are exercised off-leash and have the chance to play with other dogs or chase after a ball. The Boston Terrier will do well in an apartment because they don't need the space of a household to roam around in. A backyard would be great so they can run around in an outside environment at home, but is not needed.
