Boston Terrier Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA:
Breed Group: Terrier Group Height Male: 15-17 inches (38.1-43cm.)
Breed Size: Small Height Female: 15-17 inches (38.1-43cm.)
Breed Origin: United States Weight: 10-25 pounds (4.5-11.3kg.)
Appearance
The Boston Terrier is a small and sturdy dog, with a compact yet athletic build. He is a short muzzled dog, with erect ears and dark, wallowing eyes. The Boston Terrier has a very meaningful and sometimes almost worried expression, despite his happy and amiable disposition. These dogs weigh in at around 14-25 pounds, and the height of the Boston Terrier is around 12-16 inches. The coat is short and sleek, and coloring is brindle, black, or seal, with a white chest and blaze.
 

Temperament
The Boston Terrier is a very mild mannered, gentle, and affectionate dog, and his good natured disposition and sociable nature has earned him the nickname 'the American gentleman of dogs'. This is one of the most popular breeds in the United States, and his compact size coupled with his amiable and easygoing nature has made him a hit amongst dog lovers. The Boston Terrier is eager, always ready to please his loved ones, and extremely loyal. A dedicated pet and a lover - and giver - of attention, this is a dog that just loves to be a part of the family and loves to get involved. The Boston Terrier can sometimes be very spirited but at other times can be calm and dignified.

The Boston Terrier gets along very well with children, and he also get along well with other animals and pets. Some say that these dogs have an overly trusting nature, as not only do they get along with strangers and love to meet new people, but they will quite willingly go off with a stranger, which is something to bear in mind. Although the well socialized Boston Terrier is sweet and gentle, these dogs are very independent as well and can be stubborn at times. However, the nature of this breed makes them ideal for inexperienced dog owners as well as the more experienced, and also ideal for households with children and other pets. This is not the right dog for those that cannot dedicate time and attention to their pet, as he does not like being neglected and craves the company of his owners and family.

 
History
The Boston Terrier originates from the United States, and is thought to be a descendant of the French Bulldog and White English Terrier. Once bred for fighting, this breed was at the centre of controversy in the nineteenth century when bulldog owners and enthusiasts tried to discredit the breed. However, this is now one of the most popular breeds in the United States. The Boston Terrier was registered with the AKC in 1893.
 
Health
The lifespan of the Boston Terrier is around 10-14 years. There are a number of health problems that you will need to look out for with this breed, and these include luxating patella, epilepsy, heart problems, deafness, heart problems, allergies, thyroid problems, seizures, skin infections, eye infections, and sensitivity to chemicals and medications. Because he is a very short haired dog, extreme heat can make him susceptible to sunstroke. He may also suffer respiratory problems if over-exercised because of his short muzzle, so exercise should always be moderated and not in extreme temperatures.
