  • They will however not thrive as outside pets and need to be indoors at night

      I have been owning Boston Terriers as household pets for a number of years now and they never cease to fascinate and enchant me with their unconditional love and antics.

      This breed originated from Boston, as the name would imply, and is a cross between the British Bulldog

      and a so-called White Terrier(now extinct). Boston Terriers are extremely people-centric and are the perfect house dogs. They will however not thrive as outside pets and need to be indoors at night.

      They are intelligent, agile and good with children, although very protective of their owners. As with any terrier-type breed, they make good rodent catchers as well.

      I mostly feed them on dry pellets and they do get the occasional tidbit from the table.

      Health-wise, they do not appear to be susceptible to common ailments, but as with any dog, they do need to be ...

      exercised regularly in order to keep fit.

      One thing that sets them apart as a breed from other types, is the so-called Boston-dance: my one female called ‘Zoe’ is particularly adept at this - she sits back on her stubby tail and hind legs and whilst balancing herself,

      performs a side-to-side movement with her head and front paws, accompanied by intermittend growls and yelps - too cute for words!!

      If you are into smaller, family dogs and are prepared to give them the attention that they deserve, I cannot think of a more appropriate breed to get. Enjoy!
