Couple looking for Long hair Chihuahua. Resonably priced.
I would like to buy a long haired chihuahua. My son has one and I would like to raise one too. I live in York Pa. Please respond PJ Gryp
I live outside of Fort Worth. I have chorkies, one a year old and three 2 years old. The older ones both parents were registered but I did not register them because I couldn't find papers on the dad. Mom was a blue deer leg chihuahua-very rare in color, dad was silver and black yorkie. I need to find homes for them because I now have too many. The younger one was sired by one of my males and is very unusual looking...he somehow came out with blue eyes. Charlotte Boeker-Burris
Indeed a teddy bear chow. 8143376096 Christopher Martin
I live in Michigan, near Clinton Twp. Would like to find a reasonably priced Westie, not too old, with all shots and in good health. I do have a cat, so the dog would hopefully be cat-friendly. Lind Grammatico
With regrets, my mother has learned that she is allergic to her Westie. Westie is housed trained, up to date with shots, have his records and history of his linkage. Westie is 4 years old. Willing to practically give him away. Lenner

Common Name(s) Boston Terrier, Boston Bull, Boston Bull Terrier, Boxwood
Breed Type The Boston Terrier is a non-sporting breed. Originally bred for fighting, today's Boston Terrier is playful and well-mannered thanks to selective breeding. This breed is best suited to moderate climates, because it doesn't tolerate extreme temperatures well.
Background The Boston Terrier originated in the United States in the late 1800s. A descendent of unknown breeds of bull and terrier type dogs, the breed was much larger then than it is today. The dogs were bred selectively with smaller members of the breed and crossed with the French Bulldog to develop the modern Boston Terrier. Popular hybrids include the Boglen Terrier, a Boston Terrier and Beagle mix.
Description The Boston Terrier is a muscular dog, with a black and white or brindle and white coat. Their muzzles are short and wide, their eyes large and wide-set, and their ears small and pointed. Their tails are naturally short. Boston Terriers are 15-17 inches tall and weigh 10-25 pounds.
Care and Feeding The best foods for a Boston Terrier contain beef, fish, wheat, and yellow corn. Boston Terriers require minimal grooming. They should be brushed fairly regularly, and bathed only when needed. Their faces should be wiped clean daily, and their nails clipped as needed. Boston Terriers need yearly checkups. Vaccinations should be administered as follows:
Boston Terriers shed moderately. Regular vacuuming is recommended if you keep this breed inside.
Housing Your Dog The Boston Terrier can live indoors or out, as long as it is not exposed to extreme temperatures. The breed is not very active indoors, and it is suitable for apartment living.
Social Behaviors The Boston Terrier is a friendly dog, both with people and other pets. They do well around children and strangers. Some males may become dominant around other male dogs.
Handling and Training Boston Terriers are, for the most part, easy to train. Some, however, may be difficult to housebreak.
Activities Boston Terriers need a daily walk to stay fit. They enjoy playing outdoors as much as possible.
Breeding/Reproduction When selecting a mate for your Boston Terrier, it is important to be aware of hereditary problems in the potential mate's bloodline. Deafness, heart murmur, and luxating patellas are some things to look for. Cesarean sections are common in this breed, due to the puppies' large heads.
Common Health Problems Boston Terriers are prone to eye injuries, heart problems, and skin disorders. They may also have breathing problems due to the shape of their faces.
Availability Boston Terriers are fairly easy to find due to their popularity. Average prices for puppies are $400 to $800.
Perry - 2010-01-21 We just got a 1.5 year old female Boston Terrier and we couldn't ask for a more loving playful dog, although she does have issues being in a crate or being left alone. She poops in her crate as soon as she is left alone, even if she just went prior to being left alone. Anyone with any advice feel free to advise. She is not going anywhere, it would just be nice to fix these issues.
millie - 2010-09-26 Maybe this will work get a smaller crate.....the one you have may be too large, dogs generally do not go in their sleep area.
Beth Withrow - 2015-02-06 Don't put him in the kennel if he's naughty only use for bed or quite time, I think!?
Laike - 2010-04-24 Yes, my dog is the same. He has urine problems since we got him, it started when the previous owner got him spayed... And he whines in the kennel after I put him back in from being outside. But I love him still.!(Spyder)
ina - 2014-09-27 Your dog should have been neutered not spayed. That is if your spyder is a boy. Spaying is for the female dogs and cats and neutering would be for their male counterparts. Bostons are very easy to house break. You just have to be consistent.
