If you’ve decided to adopt a Boston Terrier from a breeder, ask potential breeders a lot of questions. Start with these queries when you interview a breeder to find the right Boston Terrier for you:

  • How long have you been breeding Boston Terriers? Do you breed other dogs?

  • What dog organizations do you belong to?

  • What health problems do you screen for? What congenital defects are present in this breed, and what steps are you taking to decrease those defects?

  • What kind of health guarantee do you offer with your dogs?

  • Can I visit your facility and meet the dam?

  • What are the parents’ good and bad points?

  • Where were the puppies raised? How have you socialized them?

  • How many litters do you have a year?

  • When can I take the puppy home?
