  • 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

Boston Terrier

Great at contacting you as soon as you find a dog that you are interested in. After you start paying for the dog the communication kinda starts lacking. Kinda started to feel like a scam but it did turn out very good and got the dog without issues.
