Facts - Overview

The Boston Terrier dog breed, also referred to as the American Gentleman, has this one-of-a-kind personality that differentiates them from other terriers. The Boston Terrier breed info describes them as a lover, and not a fighter. They’re made to be your best friend, like a second shadow, as they love to be with you and follow you around. Their regal personality is shown by their unique appearance – why else would it seem like they’re wearing a tuxedo, right?

Boston Terriers are sturdy dogs even if they only weigh 10 to 25 pounds. They have the enthusiasm of their terrier ancestors and the sweetness of their Bulldog ancestors. They are smart dogs, they love attention and they love to be with people. They can spend time with children who know how to treat them well.

Boston Terriers shouldn’t be left outside for too long as they are prone to heatstroke. You can spend time together by walking them to the park, and this will serve as their exercise. They also have this flatulence issue that can be minimized as long as you give them their proper diet, but if it happens, you can just have a good laugh over it.

Boston Terriers are great companions, and can spend time with other pets and children. They are playful and affectionate dogs. They can also be sensitive towards a person’s voice, and know when to act according to a person’s mood. When socialized and trained properly, they can be very well-mannered.

Like any other dog, Boston Terriers can be quite aggressive towards strangers, and will bark when needed. With the right training, you can teach them to immediately stop barking if in case the barking gets too loud.

A Boston Terrier is the perfect addition to your family. They are capable of becoming mature, and growing within a family. They see themselves as a strong family member, and are not hesitant in expressing their love to you.


Facts - Personality

You’d love having a Boston Terrier around. Being intelligent, affectionate, and good-natured is what makes up a Boston Terrier personality. He’s an independent creature, and is also protective of his family.

Affectionate

A Boston Terrier got his gentle sweetness from his Bulldog ancestors. He loves cuddling and snuggling with his family – don’t be surprised if you see him sharing the sofa or the bed with you. He’s capable of understanding his person’s moods: he knows when his human is happy, sad, angry or lonely, and can adjust to these moods accordingly.

Friendly

This breed loves kids and kids love him right back. Kids who know how to treat dogs well will enjoy playtime with a Boston Terrier. He can also mingle and interact well with other pets i.e. cats. If you won’t be around most of the time, then it’s best to have another pet to keep him company.

Independent

He’d gladly welcome visitors in his home, but knows when to settle down once a proper welcome has been given. He’s also capable of entertaining himself especially after you’ve given him his favorite toy. However, he still prefers to spend quality time with his family.

Intelligent

Boston Terriers love to learn. They’re also easy to train. They love to please you, so teaching them tricks won’t be too difficult especially if you start training at a very young age. It’ll also help to see what motivates him for training to be a breeze.

Protective

Boston Terriers are protective at the right times. Similar to other terriers, if they see someone approaching their home suspiciously, they won’t stop barking. They won’t hesitate to alert everyone whenever there’s a stranger walking down the street. They bark at other dogs too, but aren’t really aggressive. With proper training however, Boston Terriers can be told to immediately stop barking.


Facts - Care

Boston Terriers are lively and energetic dogs, but they don’t have excessive exercise needs. Indoors, they are relatively inactive, and this makes them suitable for those who live in an apartment or for those whose houses don’t have a yard.

Boston Terrier puppy care includes feeding the puppy for about 3 to 4 times a day, and allowing them to take a nap for better health. Make sure to have clean food and water all the time, and keep people food at a minimum.

A Boston Terrier may enjoy the Boston Terrier training, walks and playtime but he’s ultimately an indoor dog and shouldn’t be left outside. He just wants to be with you and can either be a canine athlete or couch potato – whatever you want him to become. But don’t expose him to the outdoors too much, especially in hot or humid weather, to minimize his chances of suffering from heatstroke.

Because of their short faces, it’s best to walk them using Y-shaped harnesses rather than those collars that are wrapped around their throats. Collars may put unwanted pressure on the dog’s windpipe, making it hard for the dog to breathe. It’d also help if you wash and dry his face, especially the folds of skin, after every meal.

A Boston Terrier will be a good choice for a first-time dog owner. Boston Terriers have such positive and pleasing personalities, and are good sources of unconditional love. 


Facts - Grooming

Appearance

Boston Terriers are little dogs with protruding eyes, big black noses, broad heads and a tuxedo-resembling coat (hence the title ‘American Gentleman). They have these compact, muscular frames that go well with their graceful postures. Their face resembles that of a Boxer – square faces plus short wrinkle-free muzzles. They have small and erect ears, and sometimes cropped. They have short and tapered tails low on their body, and can be screwed or straight. Their smooth and fine coats can either be seal and white, black and white or brindle and white.

Size and Weight

Boston Terriers are one of the small breeds. Their height is around 15 to 17 inches, and their weight is around 17 to 25 pounds. They have three size classifications: lower than 15 lbs., 15 to 20 lbs., and from 20 to 25 lbs. Boston Terriers that weigh less than 10 lbs. or higher than 25 lbs. is undesirable according to breed standards.

Coat and Color

Boston Terriers have this short, smooth coat that you’d find easy to groom as it doesn’t shed heavily. Their coat lays flat against their bodies, and comes in three colors: seal (this appears black but it’s actually red), black or brindle. All of them have white muzzles, chests and face blazes and these make them look as if they’re wearing a tuxedo. They don’t come in solid colors. Breeders that end up with Boston Terriers that have solid colors don’t adhere to proper standard, and these dogs will be disqualified if they enter the show ring.

Grooming Needs

It’s easy to groom Boston Terriers. All you need to do is to remove dead hair by brushing them weekly using a rubber mitt; this will also keep the skin healthy. They don’t have doggie odors so a bath will only be needed if they’re really dirty. There are owners who prefer using dry shampoos, and using those apparently keeps the dog clean, their coats healthy, and lessens their need for baths.

The rest will just be dogs’ basic care. Toenails should be trimmed every few weeks. Brush their teeth frequently. Clean their faces daily to prevent their eyes from getting irritated or picking up infections. Eyes must be clear, and ears must be monitored for redness or bad odor.

As you groom your Boston Terrier, you should check for rashes, sores, or other signs of infection e.g. tenderness, redness or skin inflammation. Conduct weekly exams to help you detect health concerns as early as possible.


Facts - Health

A Boston Terrier is just like any other dog – it loves to eat. Boston Terriers don’t really care about Boston Terrier nutrition; they don’t understand whether certain foods are good for them or not.

A healthy diet will give your Boston Terrier clear eyes, shiny coat and boundless energy. You can create homemade dog food made up of bones, lean meats and organs. Lamb and turkey necks, gizzards, chicken feet and beef tendons can also comprise your dog food. Given them food made from natural ingredients will not only satisfy them but also lessen chances of the dog emitting gases. Hard foods are also good for them, as it can help strengthen their teeth and make them less prone to cavities and plaque formation. Always make sure that they have access to fresh and clean water all the time especially during hot days.

Boston Terriers can have voracious appetites; monitor their food to avoid obesity. Be careful about giving them “people” food i.e. table scraps; chicken bones can cause choking.

Like other dogs, Boston Terriers are prone to health problems. Minor concerns include snuffling and snoring brought about by their flat faces. Bitches can also have difficulty giving birth to their puppies naturally, but a skilled veterinarian will easily assist you should you face this concern.

You shouldn’t worry a lot about health concerns; as long as you feed them with the right foods and with the right amounts plus enough exercise, your dog should be okay.


Facts - History

Also known as the American Gentleman, Boston Terriers came from a heritage in Boston, Massachusetts around the 1870s. They were said to be a mix of English Bulldogs and English Terriers.

The history of Boston Terriers started with a dog named “Hooper’s Judge”, a dark dog with white markings that could have been a mix of the now-extinct English Terrier and a Bulldog. He was afterward bred to a bitch named Burnett’s Gyp, and had produced Wells’ Eph. Eph’s puppies became all Boston Terriers’ direct ancestors.

They were first referred to as Bull Terriers, Bullet Heads, Round Heads, and in 1889, the breed was officially known as the Boston Terriers. The breed faced a number of challenges, as it had taken years for the American Kennel Club (AKC) to be convinced that the Boston Terriers were a pure breed.

They were officially registered and recognized by the AKC in 1893. Now they are instantly recognizable as a small and clean-cut breed with a flat face, short muzzle, and large round eyes. Some of them have bodies that resemble terriers better than a bulldog. Come 1920s, they’ve come to Europe, and in the 1950s, they’ve become North America’s most famous purebred dog.

Until now, the Boston Terriers remain as a famous and devoted companion dog.
