Featured Cute Dog - Boston Terrier

Introduction

The Boston Terrier, also known as the American Gentleman, the Boston Bull, the Boston Bull Terrier, and the Boxwood, is an instantly recognizable breed from the Non-Sporting Group. This breed is one of the more popular breeds of dogs in the United States, and they are even the State Dog of Massachusetts. The Boston Terrier was AKC approved in 1990.

The average Boston Terrier stands 15 to 17 high at the withers, and their average weight is between 10 – 25 pounds. The short coat of the breed is easy to care for, and while they need regular exercise they are not considered to be high energy dogs.

Temperament

The personality of the Boston Terrier is one of its greatest assets. This dog is very friendly and sociable, does well around children, and they thrive on interaction and play with their human companions and especially other Bostons.

Boston Terriers can pick up on training and commands relatively quickly with positive reinforcement techniques, but some Boston Terriers can be a little stubborn. Early socialization will ensure that the Boston Terrier does well around small children and other pets in the home.

Health

The Boston has an average life span of 15 years or more, and the breed has increased risks for a number of health conditions which owners should be aware of like catracts, cherry eye, and allergies.
