  • Overview

  • One of the few breeds with origins in the United States, the Boston Terrier is the quintessential American gentleman. Lively, fun-loving and bright, Boston Terriers flaunt a tuxedo-like coat, big round eyes and an eager-to-please personality that guarantees they're always the center of attention.  

    Boston Terriers are enthusiastic, gentle and sweet. They have a clever sense of humor and aren't afraid to clown around. Boston Terriers love to cuddle, but never pass up a chance to greet a visitor. Boston Terriers are great at entertaining themselves. They grow very attached to their toys, but always prefer human company.  

    Boston Terriers are adaptable and well suited to apartment living. Some Boston Terriers are prone to hyper activity, but it's nothing some exercise and socialization can cure. Boston Terriers are easy to care for. Their coat is short, silky and needs little grooming. They love to eat, which makes food a great motivator when training.  

    Seldom misbehaved, Boston Terriers have great manners and get along with other pets and children. Some even choose to snooze with the family cat. If you’re looking for a stylish gentleman to escort you around town and shower you with affection, then the Boston Terrier is for you

    Boxers are athletic, energetic, happy dogs. Their short muzzles and large underbites, along with their proportionately long tongues, give them a distinctive appearance. Originally bred in Germany, these dogs are now hugely popular family dogs, as they adore children and other animals and love to be with their owners. Boxers are clever and quick to learn. They have a lot of energy and do best when they are given something to occupy them, whether it be obedience, agility, or any other kind of mental challenge. Boxers are medium-large dogs, typically weighing in at around 55-65 lbs.

  • French Bulldog

    French Bulldogs are one of the more popular dog breeds in the United States. Despite their name, they come from England, not France, and have been bred to be companion animals for several hundred years. Frenchies have the characteristic short muzzles of bulldogs, but are smaller than their traditional Bulldog counterparts. They are very playful and affectionate in nature, and love to be near their people. French Bulldogs, which tend to be no larger than 28 lbs. in adulthood, are adaptable to both small and large spaces, and are devoted pets to individuals and families.
