What Is the History of the Boston Terrier?

The Boston Terrier was created as a small but intelligent and caring companion for humans. This breed was developed in the late 19th century in Boston, Massachusetts by crossbreeding English terriers with bulldogs. The Boston Terrier quickly became popular in Boston and was recognized as a distinct breed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1893. Today, the Boston Terrier is popularly known as a friendly companion dog with a tuxedo-like appearance – this look has garnered it the nickname “The American Gentleman”.

Are Boston Terriers Good Family Pets?

Boston Terriers are good pets for families of all kinds, including those with kids, the elderly, and animals. These dogs are known for their affectionate personalities, being loving with family and gentle with strangers. Their playful disposition makes them good play partners for children and other pets. Boston’s can be filled with excitement and bursts of energy, bringing joy and cheer to those around them. Given their small size, Boston Terriers can easily adapt to smaller living spaces including apartments and condominiums, so they can make apt companions for city-dwellers. You are sure to be happy with your choice to add a Boston Terrier to your home.

Are Boston Terriers Hypoallergenic?

Boston Terriers have short coats and do not shed much. As a result, they produce less dander than other breeds. However, this breed is not considered to be hypoallergenic, because it still does shed and can cause allergies for sensitive or asthmatic people. If a family member is allergic to dander, then this breed may not be the ideal fit; but in general, you can expect less shedding and dander from Boston Terriers than many other breeds.

How Much Do Boston Terrier Puppies Cost?

Boston Terrier puppies for sale can range in price between $1,000 and $2,500. The exact price depends on the breeder’s experience, the puppy’s pedigree and registrations, health guarantees, and demand for puppies at that time of the year. As you think about bringing home a Boston Terrier puppy, consider other costs to budget for – including veterinary checkups, nutritious food, training and grooming services, and toys or supplies. Budgeting broadly to account for unexpected expenses helps you to be financially prepared for raising a Boston Terrier puppy.

Do Boston Terriers Bark a Lot?

Boston Terriers are generally quiet and well-behaved dogs. Excessive barking is rare in this breed, unless the dog feels scared, threatened, bored, or anxious. If you do observe frequent barking in your Boston Terrier pup, consider investigating the underlying problem or concern. You can consult with a veterinarian or professional dog trainer to determine what may be causing the barking, and how best to resolve it.

Where Can I Adopt a Boston Terrier?

The best place to start looking for adopting a Boston Terrier dog is at your local shelter or rescue. These organizations can have a wide variety of dog breeds available, including Boston Terriers. If your local adoption agency does not have Boston Terriers available, then we recommend looking at rescue groups dedicated to Boston Terriers. These organizations can be local, regional, or national. Examples of such organizations include MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue (regional),Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida (state-specific), or the Boston Terrier Rescue of Greensboro, NC (city-specific). These organizations have extensive foster home networks where dogs are cared for until adoption, and so typically have some Boston Terrier dogs available for adoption.

How Do I Find a Reputable Boston Terrier Breeder?

Finding a healthy, well-bred Boston Terrier puppy starts with finding the right breeder. Below are some steps to consider when searching for a reputable Boston Terrier breeder:

  1. Search the Boston Terrier Club of America (BTCA)’s breeder database. This organization has a strong code of ethics that its members are required to follow.
  2. Search for responsible breeders with vetted organizations like Mawoo Pets, which screen and monitor ethical breeders.
  3. Once you have found a potential breeder, ask about their breeding program. Good breeders will give you detailed information about their health testing, socialization practices, etc.
  4. Visit the breeder's facility. This will give you an idea of how the puppies are raised and how healthy the breeding parents are. Responsible breeders are always open to you visiting their breeding space.
  5. Ask the breeder about return or rehoming policies. Reputable breeders have policies in place to support you if you are unable to keep the dog for any reason.
  6. Responsible breeders are engaged, passionate, and demonstrate knowledge of the breed and care for their dogs. Diligent Boston Terrier breeders will conduct genetic testing for common genetic conditions in Boston Terriers, such as Hyperuricosuria or Degenerative Myelopathy.
