The Boston Terrier combines the enthusiasm of its terrier ancestors with the affection and kindness of its Bulldog ancestors. He also possesses cunning and a sense of humor. Boston is smart, needs a lot of attention, and loves to be with people, especially if it means sitting on your knees or being on your bed or couch. He certainly has cunning. Boston can entertain itself, especially if it has a favorite toy or two, but is more likely to do something with the family.
