Is a Boston Terrier the Right Dog Breed for You?
The Boston Terrier is a highly intelligent breed with a stubborn streak. They are active, playful and friendly with a gentle demeanor. They have low grooming needs and require moderate daily exercise. They get along well with children and other animals, and are generally not good protectors. Bostons do well in apartment s and smaller homes, and should be indoor only due to their inability to tolerate temperatures well.
