A true American breed, the Boston Terrier, originated in Boston, Massachusetts, and has continued to be popular today for its versatility, temperament, and physique. Bred to be a best friend, these dogs happily blend into their human family and enjoy spending time playing and relaxing with the ones they love.
The Boston Terrier is a small but sturdy breed, making it easily adaptable to many different environments and lifestyles. The Boston Terrier can just as easily spend the day lounging on the sofa as it can enjoying walks in the park, and its stature makes it a perfect pet for any home environment.
Boston Terriers, simply put, love people. They are great with children, strangers, and other pets, making them an excellent choice for active and growing families. Boston’s are easily trainable and excel in agility and learning tricks, which makes them quickly house trained and leash trained.
Another benefit of the breed is that they require very little grooming and only experience light shedding. Ranging from 10 to 25 pounds in weight and standing just 1 foot to 1.5 feet at the shoulders, the Boston is perfectly suited to apartment dwelling as well as to suburban settings and adventures on the go.
These terriers typically enjoy a long life span of 11 to 13 years, so you will have your furry friend with you for quite some time. It is essential to feed your pup a healthy and nutritious diet that enables them to remain healthy and mentally alert. Many mainstream dog foods can work just fine for this breed; however, it is a good idea to consult your vet or dog care provider for recommendations for your individual pup’s needs.
Boston Terriers are known to be a healthy and hardy breed, sporting distinctive coats that stand out in a crowd. Their coats can range from the traditional classic black and white tuxedo to a more varied brindle appearance. What all Boston’s have in common is their signature square jawlines and their expressive eyes that make them stand out among other dog breeds.
Born with a natural gift for comedy, Boston Terriers are sure to bring smiles to all who meet them. This bright and happy breed is a perfect urban dwelling companion whose exercise needs are easily met with brisk walks in the park and playtime at home. The Boston Terrier’s overall sturdy build, easy-care, general love of people, and ability to assimilate into many different environments make it a great choice for a companion.
