Hi and Welcome Everyone!

This is Sharda with Boston Terrier newsletter!

By now you know that the Boston Terrier was bred way back in the 1800s in Boston to fight.

But today, two centuries later, this breed is “an indoor lover” by nature and likes to play with adults and children alike.

How To Choose The Right Boston Terrier Puppy:

There are several parameters of selecting a Boston Terrier. Here they are:

  • If you’re looking for a friendly and intelligent dog that gets along well with everyone, look no further than a Boston Terrier pet because this breed loves children, strangers and other animals. But be careful as he may sometimes prove to be very aggressive to other dogs. It could also be that due to your Boston Terrier’s cheerful personality, he may not be the best of watchdogs, but this may be just an individual problem rather than a breed characteristic.
  • He’s right for you if you live in an apartment and he is indoorsy, so a smaller home would suit his temperament fine.
  • Expect to include your fun-loving pet to be part of all your family celebrations.
  • Though your Boston Terrier can be trained quickly due to his intelligence, this breed is also known for its stubbornness. So this could result in this breed being difficult to housebreak, though by and large they are housebroken by age eight months.
  • A purebred Boston Terrier can cost anything between $300 and $1,500 or more if he is genetically tested or comes with full registration for breeding and showing.
  • If there are health guarantees attached to the pet of your choice, you need to speak to the breeder about them.
  • Now, examine your pet’s features carefully. Does he look alert, energetic and intelligent? Is his body dense and solid with a short, flat, wrinkle-free head? If his coat is short, brindle, seal or black and white, he’s worth taking home.
  • Bear in mind that your Boston Terrier could contract health problems such as cataracts, hypothyroidism and skin tumors. This will naturally involve expensive treatment procedures, but before you buy, ask the breeder what screening has been done.
  • Is your breeder a member of breed, specialty or obedience clubs? Check out his credentials very carefully. Also, ask for breeder’s references to make sure he isn’t a puppy mill (a kennel where pups are bred solely for money rather than without any consideration for the breed). Check for health problems of the breed and the individual pup before breeding. Ask also to see the mother of your pup.

Considerate breeders wait for their pups till about nine to 12 weeks before they put them up on the market that should be the age at which you would bring home your new pup.

Now that you’ve got everything sorted out—right from a spot in your house to the paperwork, go out and get your pet. And yes, good luck!

That’s it for today.

I hope that you learned something from today’s Boston Terrier newsletter.

All the best and take care
