A great mix between two breeds of dogs is the Boston Terrier-Chihuahua combination, mostly due to the great breeds of the parents. This article will tell you everything there is to know about the amazing Boston Chihuahua mix.
The Boston Terrier-Chihuahua mix is suitable for all kinds of families and houses, even smaller apartments. It is also a very adorable pet and a loyal companion. It comes from two breeds that are very liked by dog owners, the CHihuahua and the Boston Terrier. This dog will feature an amazingly strong personality.
But let’s talk more about its parents, to get a clearer understanding of what their combination will look like.
The Boston Terrier is also known as the American gentleman, due to its unique markings in the form of a tuxedo. It is a breed that is considered ‘all-American’. And their personality makes them gentlemen as well. They were initially bred to participate in fight sports, but soon enough people realized that with enough love and care, they would make a really great companion instead. Although it has a stubborn personality, this dog is very lovable, active, lively, and extremely intelligent.
You surely know that the Chihuahua is the smallest dog in the world. But the size should in no way fool you. This small creature has a pretty opinionated personality, being feisty but also very intelligent. Some people find his yelps annoying from time to time, but it’s not something you won’t be able to ignore in time. He is quite delicate, mostly due to his small size. This means that you shouldn’t get this dog if you need a dog for chores.
The Bo-Chi is actually a delight to train, especially because of its high intelligence levels. Being so intelligent also means that it will have a strong personality, which means that it might get stubborn at one point or another. This is when the owner will have to take an active approach to training and socializing with the dog.
It will eagerly learn any new tricks and will also be very energetic and active. This is a very quick learner, as long as you’re using the right training style.
You will notice that the Bo-Chi won’t be very suspicious around strangers and will like to socialize and meet new people. Although it will like to spend time around strangers, it will always have a stronger connection with loved ones and will usually follow them wherever they go.
Most of the time, the Bo-Chi won’t take the Chihuahua’s annoying bark. This mix isn’t even considered that much of a barker. It will only bark to alert its owner when it notices strange activity.
The Boston Terrier-Chihuahua mix will become a loving and lively companion to your whole family, so make sure you give it the necessary affection and it will surely reciprocate it.
