No Such Thing As a “Mini” Boston Terrier

in Boston Terrier Breeding

boston terrierYou may have heard certain breeders talk about “mini” Boston Terriers.

Let me set the record straight … “mini” Boston Terriers do not exist. If you happen to come across a breeder who says they sell “mini” or “teacup” Boston Terriers, BEWARE.

The breeder is most likely a dishonest, backyard breeder who is trying to monetize on a puppy’s misfortunate health condition.

The average size for a Boston Terrier should be as follows:

Height: 15-17 inches
Weight: 10-25 pounds

If you find a Boston Terrier that is less than 10 pounds it will most likely develop an array of health issues. A “mini” Boston Terrier may be the result of a runt bred with another runt- which will result in genetic health problems.

Realize that “mini” Bostons are not recognized by the AKC and should not be bred.
