Popularity: Very popular;

Trainability: Boston Terrier puppies can be trained quickly if the trainer makes sure to assert themselves as the leader of the pack. Bostons can definitely fall for Small Dog Syndrome, in which they define themselves as the one who is in charge of the entire household. It's important for the human to stay in control in a firm and affectionate manner. Bostons are eager to please, so training needn't be difficult or an extended chore;

Size/Weight: Small sized dogs, weighing in at an average of 6-25 pounds;

Origin Location/Date: This dog has a tumultuous history of mixed breeding, but the cute and affectionate version we see today originated in Boston in the late 1800s. In 1889, the mix was formally referred to as a Boston Terrier and in 1893, the AKC recognized it as a formal breed;

Energy Level: The Boston Terrier isn't a tremendously energetic dog, so you won't need to run it for miles a day. You will, however, need to keep tabs on its weight. Since these are great house dogs and since they're quite small, they tend to pack on the pounds if they aren't getting enough exercise, so it's recommended to walk them briskly every day for the sake of its health. You'll also need to feed it a proper diet to maintain a suitable weight as well;

Temperament: Boston Terriers are gentle, sweet and have a very pleasing sense of humor. They're smart and they simply love being around people. Think lap dogs. They'll likely end up sitting on your lap while watching TV and sleeping with you in bed overnight. If you're a cuddler or a snuggler, you'll love this dog. When meeting new people, Bostons do tend to get very excited, but this doesn't last too long. Once the novelty has worn off, they'll calm right down to return to their fun loving and companionable selves;

Necessary Space: This breed of dog is small enough and calm enough to live in the smallest of apartments or the largest of houses. As long as they have their human best friends, they should be content. Just be sure to walk them every day for both mental and physical stimulation;

Talents: Can easily turn into your best friend. Loves hugs and kisses and loves to sit next to you to keep you company. The perfect companion;

Life Expectancy: 11-13 years;
