Questions & Answers
You bet! Boston Terriers aren’t just fun-sized—they’re great for apartments, too. Boston Terriers love lazy Sundays just as much as their human companions, but it’s important to remember that these dogs have relatively high energy levels and need exercise accordingly. Luckily, those short little legs won’t have to move as far as a larger breed.
Not a problem. While it used to be true that you were limited to local breeders, that just isn’t the case any longer. If you connect with a Boston Terrier breeder or business but they don’t have any puppies available near you, no worries—your breeder can arrange travel for your new pooch to your nearest major airport!

Well, that all depends. Boston Terrier prices can vary based on breeder location/experience, puppy pedigree, coat color, puppy size, and even gender. Color especially can affect price, such as with gray Boston Terrier, splash Boston Terrier, blue Boston Terrier puppies for sale, red Boston Terrier puppy for sale, etc.
Normally when you search for “Boston Terrier breeders near me,” you’re seeing the breeders who are the best at marketing. They might be great breeders, or maybe they aren’t. We take marketing and advertising out of the equation by only approving the BEST, most humane breeders to join our network.
Puppy mills have really become an epidemic lately. Basically, a mill is sort of like a factory for dogs. At mills, Boston Terriers are forced to have dangerously high numbers of puppy litters, and dogs are treated inhumanely. Mill dogs also get sick easier, and can cost you and your family thousands in added vet fees down the road.
As one of the most popular breeds in the United States, it’s no surprise that Boston Terriers are being crossed with all sorts of other breeds like the Beagle (Boglen Terrier puppy), Poodles, Huskies, Pomeranians, Cocker Spaniels, and much more. Check with our network of vetted breeders for more info!
Boston Terriers were originally bred as fighting dogs—yes, you read that correctly. Since then the breed has changed drastically, with no trace of the breed’s past personality remaining. Today, Boston Terriers are known for being sweet, gentle companions (and some of the best snuggle buddies you could ask for).
