Boston “Bull” Terrier Dog

The Boston terrier is a muscular and compact dog breed. This is not really surprising because folks who first bred them wanted to use them in dogfights. Now, some people may read all kinds of insinuations to such a violent past. Some folks may think that a Boston terrier will make bad family pets because of its aggressive nature. But, you should know that, as a pet Boston can be a well-mannered pal.

The Boston terrier temperament can be described as excited because the dog usually likes to play. It’s believed that Boston terrier has a good sense of humor. Another feature that people find exciting about this breed is the fact that they are intelligent and can be trained very easily. This fact is reinforced by the pup natural curiosity and its love for learning.

Of course, those who own dogs understand the importance of training. Having a well-behaved dog will increase the fun for both of you. Having a well-mannered puppy means you'll have a good time with your puppy.

One thing a lot of owners have observed with this dog is that it can be very sensitive to the person's tone of voice. This can be described as a type of emotion detector. Because of this sensitivity to tone, a Boston terrier will be able to respond to your feeling when you speak. This means, that you must be careful when training your dog. You must make sure that anger and frustration do not get into your voice.

In addition, they make excellent watchdogs because they do not bark without a cause. This means that you will not wake up in the middle of the night because your dog saw a butterfly. There are some cases, however, when Boston terrier will not bark at all.

With regard to living conditions, Boston terriers can be okay without a yard, as long as you exercise them regularly. This means they are suitable for apartment living. But, you should also know that they are very sensitive to bad weather. This means that you should keep them in an environment that is not too cold or too hot.

Not like other terrier breeds, the Boston terrier is a normal shedder. Meaning you should be cautious about keeping them inside because it will shed fur over your floor. We all know how much of a mess that may be.

This breed has a range of common health problems. They simply overheated once they are pushed too hard. As mentioned above, they can also be sensitive to adverse weather conditions and any extreme heat or cold may lead to breathing problems. They are prone to Skin tumors and heart tumors. So you need to take your Boston to a veterinarian regularly.

Another complaint you must watch out for is a skull defect. If the dog is poorly bred, it often develops a bone deficiency that prevents the brain from growing. This, of course, will lead to a retarded dog.
