About the Breed
Also known as the American Gentleman, the Boston Terrier is a stunning little dog that has a fantastic personality. Although originally bred to be fighters over two centuries ago, these dogs are now free of aggression and all about comedy and fun. They are friendly, spunky, and athletic companion pets that excel at sporting competitions. These dogs have won numerous show dog titles over the years.
The Boston Terrier breed is currently one of the most popular purebreds in the United States. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club since 1893.
Appearance and Grooming
Small, sturdy, and alert with a tuxedo-like coat, Boston Terriers have a unique and gorgeous appearance. They are athletic and despite their small size, they are quite strong and agile.
These dogs are a flat-faced breed with a short, square-shaped muzzle and large, bat-like ears. They have dark and round expressive eyes that are set wide apart and a short, dense coat that is usually black, seal, or brindle, each with white markings. Their tails are naturally short.
As per their breed standard, Boston Terriers typically weigh between 20 and 25 pounds and stand at 15 to 17 inches fully grown. Females may be a tad smaller than males.
Although they come with a terrier's nature which is energetic and independent, these dogs have acquired gentleness and patience through their extensive history. Originally bred for fighting sports, they still retain some of their spunkiness and alertness. However, aggression is no longer a dominant trait in this breed. They don't become territorial with other dogs and they are neither jumpy nor shy. These gorgeous little dogs are more fond of being goofy and entertaining rather than shying away from fun.
Family and Companionship
Boston Terriers love attention and are known for their strong loyal tendencies. They get along well with other dogs and play quite nicely with children. Their playful nature and energetic personalities make them a great fit for active owners and families with children. They also fit well with owners who are away from home more often, as these dogs are independent enough to entertain themselves while alone.
Companionship is what these dogs crave. They are known to bond with their owners quickly and want to be involved in every activity their owners are taking part in.
Being an energetic dog breed, Boston Terriers love and need regular exercise. Two walks every day of a combined 30 to 60 minutes and a few interactive indoor games should be enough to keep them happy and healthy.
Training and Socialization
The Boston puppy is a smart dog, possibly one of the top most intelligent breeds in Dogdom. He learns quickly and responds best to positive reinforcement. Rewards also work well when training these adorable puppies. Owners that raise the puppies with regular, daily training sessions, will get the best and fastest results.
Boston terriers aren't prone to separation anxiety, but like all dogs, they should receive training prior to being left alone for the first time. It is also beneficial to socialize the puppies early to ensure they grow into well-mannered, friendly, and outgoing adult dogs.

I wanted to take a moment and thank Premier Pups for helping me find my new girl, Pearl. She is such a spunky little critter and I just love her to pieces!! I encourage anyone who is on the fence about buying a pup online to go ahead and trust Premier Pups. The process was smooth and painless, and I felt that any questions I had would be immediately answered as they were "right there" throughout the process.....from purchase to pick-up (we drove from IN) and even in the week that followed. Again, thank you so much for making my experience wonderful! A+
