    I have had Boston’s all my life and would recommend this breed to all ages-wonderful with children-very playful and lovable.

    I just wanted to write about how pleased I am with my Boston terrier. I have been a dog owner all of my life but never had the pleasure of owning such an intelligent, easily-trained animal. He is boisterous and friendly with the cats, who regard him as a mild annoyance and no more (which is actually a good thing given that two of my cats weigh 20 pounds apiece). He has learned sit, stay, and sit-up, mastering each command in a matter of minutes. House-training is also moving along quite well, his "accidents" becoming fewer and farther between. All in all, this is the best dog I have ever had and I hope everybody is as lucky as I am with this breed. He is also very good with children and elderly people.

    I have a one year old Boston. I got when he was 4 months. He has grown quite a bit, he is wonderful with all people he come in contact with. He is very smart, he knows treat of course, toy (get your toy), and is working on sit. He’s my little baby boy.

    These little guys make wonderful companions. Lively, interactive and intelligent, bond and will be a wonderful companion for all. High energy level, but able to calm down and snuggle. You won’t be sorry if you choose a Boston. Easy maintenance.

    The Border Terrier is a very happy and jolly breed that loves attention and loves to play. They love a walk and chase many things as they are a hunting dog. They are very obedient and love to have a challenge. I would say that this breed is perfect for a family that are able to spend lots of time with it. Although these dogs are very good on their own and can become very independent.

    I would highly recommend this breed to anyone. They are highly intelligent, quick to learn, and very loving. I have 2 Bostons named Brewer and Brandy. They’re our babies! We have had dogs all of our lives and although we have had some fine dogs, I would have to say that the Bostons are the very best. They have beauty, faithfulness, and intelligence. How can you go wrong with dogs like these?!

    I have experience with many breeds but I can tell you from experience the Boston Terrier is one of the best family breeds. I have found that Bostons are highly intelligent, eager to please and full of affection. We currently have six and would never change breeds. The more attention and affection you give them the more you will receive in return.

    My one-year-old female is super-smart, affectionate and a real clown. Prone to being stubborn on occasion, I’ve found she plays better with bigger dogs because of her tendency to be too boisterous with smaller breeds. The best breed there is, I reckon!

    We have had our Boston for 9 years. I am generally a cat person and was hesitant about bringing a dog into our home. A single friend of ours just got a Boston puppy when he received orders to Hawaii. He stated Toby would have to be guaranteed for (I believe) 4 months and didn’t want to put him through that and asked if we would take him. My sons were very excited and I couldn’t say no. Am I glad I didn’t. He is the smartest, cutest and most fun dog I know. He was already housebroken at 7 months when we got him which was a bonus. It didn’t take long to train him to do other thinks and we had no clue what we were doing. He just naturally minded! He’s the best dog ever!

    My family and I recently lost both of our boxers. They were both very old. We adopted a boston terrier from our son-in-law(he was going to take the dog many miles from home and dump him. I don’t know where my daughter found him) He is much smaller than we are used to, but he has,in a very short time, become a member of the family! I have found him to be very playful, espically with our kitten.They have become the best of friends.He also seems to be pretty bright, and loves to go with me when I take my sons to school and pick them up.I have become very fond of the breed and will likely have another soon. Does this breed have a high risk of cancer or heart problems as boxers tend to? Butch(our boston) is about 2yrs. old and seems to be very much like my boxers in that he will stay very puppyish for quite awhile.

    The lively intelligent part doesn’t exactly live up to my boston Daisy. How about timid and quivery ?! She has only bonded with a couple of family members. Two family members took her to an ash pitch across the road from where Daisy lives. She really loved it !
