November 6, 2009, Newsletter Issue #71: Boston Terrier Puppies For Sale

Tip of the Week

With their slightly pushed in faces and their fun loving
attitudes, it is no wonder that Boston Terriers are such popular little dogs.
However, popularity isn't always a good thing, especially for dogs. As you
search for Boston Terrier puppies for sale, you'll have to be ready to ask the
breeder plenty of questions about your potential puppy's family.

Many Bostons have a hereditary problem with Demodectic mange. While this type
of mange is not contagious, it is actually so serious in some cases that it can
cause dogs to be put down from the constant pain and skin irritation related to
this condition.

Another common problem with this breed is that, while hip dysplasia isn't
common, they do have a tendency to suffer from bad knees.

Once you find a puppy that has healthy parents that have
been screened for all of the common hereditary defects, there is one more thing
you need to think about. If you plan to ship your puppy from out of state, you’ll
have to factor in the temperature. Although they don’t have the pushed in face
of a Pug, these dogs could have enough trouble breathing in hot weather that
they should only be shipped on cooler days.
