Boston Terrier Overview

Is this devoted breed for you?

1. The Bostons only job is to be a wonderful companion. He’s loyal, friendly and intelligent, a great choice for dog owners with doggie smarts.

2.  The Boston is a relatively small dog, with a short coat and short muzzle. His grooming needs are minimal, but owners must take precautions that these short-faced dogs do not overheat and be aware of potential breathing problems.

3.  The Boston thrives on his familys attention and companionship. You must be prepared to spend time with your Boston, training him, doing activities with him and making him a true part of your life and home.

4.  Do you know what it takes to care for a Boston, or any dog for that matter? Is your entire family ready? Do you have time for a dog, as well as money for healthcare, supplies, etc.?
