About Boston Terrier
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Boston Terrier originates
from the United States of America. The breed
has been around since the year 1870, when
a man named Robert C. Hooper bought a dog
named ‘Hooper’s Judge’.
Hooper’s Judge was a cross between an
English Bulldog and an English White Terrier.
Over time the breed was bred
down in size and in 1893 they gained recognition
with the American Kennel Club.
In 1889, about thirty people from
the Boston area organized the American Bull Terrier
Club. Dogs known as "Round Heads" or "Bull
Terriers" were bred and exhibited by these
people. Bull Terrier breeders objected that these
crosses were not Terriers and Bulldog breeders objected
because they were not Bulldogs. In 1891 the name
was changed to the Boston Terrier Club of America,
(BTCA) and a standard was written. In 1893 the breed
was accepted by the American Kennel Club.
By 1915 the breed was stabilized
and had become the most popular in the country.
They were number one in registrations in 1919, 1920
and 1930. The Breed remained in the Top Ten until
1960, but have slipped steadily since that time.
This Breed has become refined and
standardized, has this intelligent and spunky little
dog is a fitting representative of the spirit of
independence from Boston Commons.

Temperament of the Dog
Although the dog was originally
bred for fighting, it has been since bred down to
more of a companion dog. These days the breed is
gentle, well-mannered and alert, and they also tend
to have a few of the spunky Terrier characteristics.
One advantage of the breed is that
they are fairly quiet animals and they do not bark
unless it is necessary. They love being around people
and they are quite a cuddly breed. However, there
are some which prefer to be independent.
The breed also tends to have a
sense of humor and they can be fairly enthusiastic
and occasionally Rambunctious. They can make good
watchdogs although generally they are really good
As well as being naturally quiet
dogs, the female breeds have been reported to not
bark at all. This means if you are looking for a
watchdog, a male would be your best choice.Although
they are generally a gentle breed, they can be protective
of their families and extremely loyal too.Overall
this breed is one of the best family pets to own.
Better suited to an indoor
or outdoor lifestyle?
The Dog generally should be kept
indoors. All small breeds are better off indoors,
especially if they only have a short coat which
will not keep them warm enough in the colder months.
Are they suited to homes
As the dog loves to be around
people, it would ideally suit a home where there
is somebody constantly with it. A home with children
is ideal as they will give the dog plenty of attention
and the breed thrives in a family household. As
the breed is so small and they do not need a great
deal of exercise, they can be kept in an apartment.
This breed does not cost much to keep so it is an
ideal breed for those who are on a low income.
to take care of the Dog Puppies?
When you first purchase
your dog puppy it is essential that you feed
them regular, small meals throughout the day.
It is always better to feed a good quality
food and try and keep the diet consistent.
If you change it too much the puppy will develop
an upset stomach.
All puppies need rest and quiet time in order to allow them to properly settle and grow. It is also important to socialize your puppy from an early age as some male dogs have a tendency
The breeds like all small dogs
should not be overfed. It is always better to feed
around three small meals a day and the food should
be a mixture of dry biscuits and meat.
Due to their intelligent nature,
the breed is fairly easy to train. They are willing
to please and the only problems people generally
tend to have with the breed is housebreaking. Whilst
the dog is intelligent it can often take a while
for it to learn various things and housebreaking
is one of them.
It is always easier to start training
the dog as early as possible. If shown from an early
age what is expected of them, they will learn a
lot quicker and you will not have as many problems
when the dog grows up.
This breed tends to thrive on routine
and they need a training schedule which is structured
and consistent. Ensure that the puppy is not allowed
to chew much when they are first brought home. Whilst
it may seem cute at first, the puppy’s teeth
will grow and it will carry the habit through until
they are fully grown where it starts to become a
problem! So, be consistent and stick to a routine.
That way your dog will know exactly what
is expected of them and they will be a lot easier
How active is the breed?
The Boston Terrier is not overly
active and so usually you can get away with having
only a fenced yard for them to play in. They can
easily be kept in an apartment without any worries
about whether or not they will chew the place to
bits whilst you are gone.
Generally tiring them out with
a few dog toys seems to do the trick and one walk
a day is often sufficient enough for them.
As a puppy the breed will not need
much exercise at all. Just a few sessions of playing
with them with a dog toy will be enough for them
as they tend to get tired out fairly easily. You
should never play with your puppy straight after
they have eaten as this could cause serious health
problems with the dog. Adult dogs do not need much
exercise at all, and usually just running around
in a fenced yard, or taking the dog on one walk
a day should be enough. Remember that this breed
has small legs so when you do go for a walk, it
should only really be a short one as you do not
want to tire the dog out too much.
The breed sheds seasonally and
usually you only need to brush the dog weekly with
a firm bristle brush. As the coat is so short there
is no risk of it becoming matted, that is why daily
grooming is not always necessary. To keep them completely
clean, it is always better to wipe the face daily
with a damp cloth and be sure that you clean around
the eyes as they are prone to eye infections.It
is also important to check the ears frequently too
for any signs of infections or irritations.
The Dog suffers from problems
such as Respiratory problems, eye infections, heatstroke
and cataracts.The breed also suffers from snoring
and snorting due to its incredibly short muzzle.
Another problem also includes gas which is usually
caused by the dog’s diet. You should find
that changing the diet a little will really help
to eliminate the problem.
Breeding the Dog and any
any dog you need to think about the health of your
dog and whether it has any faults at all. There
are far too many breeds ending up in rescue home
these days and so breeding really does need to be
seriously thought about beforehand.
If you are still interested in
breeding, then you will need to make sure that you
have a nice, safe, warm place where the puppies
will be born and where they will not be disturbed.
It is possible for a new mother to kill her puppies
if she feels they are being threatened.
There are always problems which
could arise so it is always best to have a vet on
hand. It is a good idea to speak to the vet before
you decide to breed anyway as they will be able
to tell you if your dog is in good enough health
and what you will need to consider before breeding
Litter Size: The
average litter size is 3-4 puppies.
