Boston Terriers tend to love people and make great dogs for families. They’re on the smaller side, but they are not as fragile as some toy breeds like Pomeranians or Chihuahuas. Children still need to be shown how to play with them safely, but they may be less likely to get hurt by little hands that handle them roughly.
Other than the snoring, grunting, snorting, and tooting, they are on the quieter side. They are not known to be yappy and only bark when they are riled up or hear someone at the door. This can make them a good family watchdog.
Boston Terriers are generally healthy and can live up to 15 years or more with proper care. Here are some things you should know about caring for these dogs:
And of course, you should bring your Boston Terrier to the veterinarian for regular visits.
