Boston Terrier Puppies

What are Boston Terrier

Boston Terriers are typically small, compactly built, well proportioned dogs with erect ears, short tails, and a short muzzle that should be free of wrinkles.  They usually have a square sort of face. According to international breed standard, the dog should weigh no less than 10 pounds and no more than 25 pounds. Boston Terriers usually stand 15-17 inches at the shoulder.

Temperament

Boston Terriers are mainly hyper, friendly, and rambunctious dogs. They have very strong, lovable, unforgettable personalities. They need owners that can keep up with the alert, loud temperament of this dog. Bostons can range in temperaments from those that are eager to please their master to those that are more stubborn. Both can be easily trained given a patient and assertive owner.

While originally bred for fighting, they were later down bred for companionship. The modern Boston Terrier can be gentle, alert, expressive, and well-mannered. Many still retain the spunky attitude of the typical terrier. Be aware of much dominance, especially toward other dogs and domesticated animals. It must be noted however, that they are not considered terriers by the American Kennel Club, but are part of the non-sporting group. Boston Terrier is something of a misnomer. They were originally a cross-breed between the Old English Bulldog and the English White Terrier. Both of these breeds are now extinct

Both females and males generally bark only when necessary. Having been bred as a companion dog, they enjoy being around people, and, if properly socialized, get along well with children, the elderly, other canines, and non-canine pets. Some Boston Terriers are very cuddly, while others not so.

 

Sometimes  Puppies go through Puppy Separation Anxiety: You might ask yourself Why's He Doing This?  With time and love puppies adapt to positive reinforcment.  Beside great blood lines it is your time and involvement that turns a puppy into a great dog

Please note:   Bostons are Tom Boys.  They are territorial.  They fart.  They bark.  As an owner it is your responsibility to learn how to train them, continually socialize them, and be thier leader of the pack.

Thought for the Day

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it,
Just pee on it and walk away.
