When considering how to select a Boston terrier you want to always take into consideration the characteristic, the general characteristics of the breed of dog. How much exercise do they require? Can they live in your current and future situation? You need to consider that this dog will potentially be with you, hopefully be with you, fifteen or more years, and so you want to think about where you are now, and where you are in the future, so that you can create a stable environment for this new member of your family. Boston Terriers in particular, as a general statement again, you want to take each individual dog into consideration. But generally they are pretty playful, they're active, very active, they don't although they don't require a lot of exercise. They require quite a bit of stimulation. They can be fairly easy to train, maybe not the easiest, but affectionate dogs. They do pretty well with other dogs in general. You might want to check the individual dog you would need to check the individual dog and see whether that is the case. They tend to be good watch dogs, which means that means that they might bark a good bit.
