Those who share their home with Boston Terriers and Boston Terrier mixes often describe them as wonderful companion dogs. The most obvious traits in these dogs are their extreme intelligence and companionable dispositions. They are lively, friendly, athletic, funny, obedient and extremely easy to train. Their true goal in life is to please their humans. But they will not be ignored! Be prepared for your Boston Terrier to demand both playtime and affection.

Their short, fine coat is quite easy to groom. Occasional brushing and a bath when needed is usually enough maintenance for this breed. You might even wipe your BT down with a damp cloth in between bathing to keep the coat clean and shiny. While the Boston Terrier does not demand strenuous activity, they are a lively breed that loves playtime and human interaction. Bostons love to run, fetch, and swim. Providing some active playtime in addition to the daily walk or two will result in a well behaved pet.

5 Reasons to Consider Adopting Over Buying a Boston Terrier for sale from a store, or Boston Terrier Breeder:

  1. Adoption is More Affordable - Typically, adoption fees are much less than you’d pay for a Boston Terrier dogs and puppies for sale at a pet store, or even a reputable Boston Terrier breeder. Adopting is especially a great deal because usually rescued dogs and puppies have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and have been spayed or neutered. It all adds up, but when you choose pet adoption you are paying less for a dog or puppy who is just as perfect as one you’d find for sale!
  2. Near Purebreds & Healthy Mixes - Looking for a specific type of dog or puppy? It is estimated that 30% of all shelter animals are purebred, including Boston Terriers. There are also Boston Terrier rescue organizations specifically devoted to rescuing and adopting out only Boston Terriers. On the other hand, you can find your own one-of-a-kind, amazing mixed-breed dog in a shelter. We love those fabulous mutts! Due to a larger gene pool to draw from, often mixed-breed dogs have fewer behavioral problems or health issues, and can even live longer than purebred dogs. In short, whatever you’re looking for you can find at your local shelter or rescue group, and right here on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
  3. Be a Hero - Selecting a Boston Terrier rescue group or going to your local animal shelter means that you are saving a dog's life. In truth, you are also making room for another dog to enter the shelter; therefore, you are saving another! When you choose to adopt, you’re an instant hero.
  4. Adult Adoption = Less Stress - Adopting an adult dog has many advantages. Adult dogs in shelters often have already been in homes, and many have already be housebroken or have had obedience-trained. Also, since adult dogs’ personalities are already established, it is easy to tell if they are good with children, or familiar and comfortable with other pets. One thing is certain; adult dogs require less attention and less work than puppies do. Best of all, any rescued dog will be forever grateful you saved their life.
  5. Finding the Right Match - Often rescue group and animal shelter staff and volunteers know the personalities of animals, meaning they will know the individual Boston Terrier dogs and puppies in their care. They will be able to better match you up with a dog that fits your lifestyle and activities. This is one of many advantages to finding an adult Boston Terrier dog for adoption, rather than for sale.
