Boston Terrier Dogs - The Boston Terrier is a breed of dog originating in the United States of America. Boston Terriers are typically small, compactly built, well proportioned, dogs with erect ears, short tails, and a short muzzle.
While originally bred for fighting, the modern Boston Terrier are bred for companionship. The Boston Terrier can be gentle, alert, expressive, and well-mannered. Many still retain the spunky attitude of the typical terrier, however, they are not considered terriers by the American Kennel Club, but are part of the non-sporting group.
Some Bostons enjoy having another one for companionship. Both females and males generally bark only when necessary. Having been bred as a companion dog, they enjoy being around people, and, if properly socialized, get along well with children, the elderly, other canines, and non-canine pets. Boston Terriers can be very cuddly, while others are more independent.
