Boston Terrier Characteristics
The Boston Terrier has been growing in popularity since its creation a little more than 100 years ago. Originally bred as fighting dogs, Boston Terriers are now by nature quite sweet, affectionate companions with a charming and unique physical profile. Those who are able to give their Boston Terriers lots of love and physical activity will have an adoring and loyal best friend.
The Boston Terrier is a spirited companion easily identified by his black and white tuxedo jacket, athletic but compact body, and unique facial structure. Often referred to as "The American Gentleman," these dogs are often well-behaved and very social. They’re one of the few dog breeds created in the United States when a Boston native crossed an English Bulldog and a White English Terrier.
Typically weighing between 10-25 pounds and standing at 12-15 inches at the shoulder, the Boston Terrier can be found in a blue, brown, or red coat, and can be lovingly referred to as a "stout" or "sturdy" dog.
The appearance of the Boston Terrier brings amusement to many, and their charming personalities turn that amusement into affection. However, it is important to note that dogs with short snouts like Boston Terriers can have breathing issues. Their snouts also aren’t as efficient at cooling air when they inhale, so they can be very susceptible to heat stress. Because of their short coat, they don't do well in extremely cold weather either. All this, coupled with their compact size, makes them the perfect apartment companion and not a dog to be left outside for long periods of time.
The unique physical stature of the Boston Terrier can also present unique health and lifestyle issues. Boston Terriers are prone to corneal ulcers and respiratory problems due to their facial structure. Therefore, it is important to be careful around their eyes when playing or exercising and avoid pulling on the dog's collar to get them to behave or heel.
