These affectionate and friendly dogs possess an immense loyalty for their owners, always keen to please them in every possible way they can. They also love to snuggle into their laps at the slightest available opportunity.
They have an adaptable nature and can cope with any surroundings, though they would not be comfortable enough to stay away from their loved ones for a prolonged period and if so it might lead to pangs of separation anxiety.
Inheriting the Poodle’s sense of humor, this breed displays a comic and entertaining nature.
They have a great rapport with kids emerging as their perfect playmate, though parental supervision is needed to ensure that the little ones do not hurt these dogs.
Having Poodle as one of its parents, the Bossi-Poo may have a strong inclination towards swimming.
Just as its parents, it may bark to warn its master about an intruder in his territory, but gets along well with strangers after being introduced to them.
Since they are high on intelligence, a trait borrowed from their Poodle parent and also eager to satisfy their masters, training the Poodle Boston Terrier Mix should not be too much of a challenge.
One and a half to two and a half cup of dry dog food every day is needed, along with a diet rich in essential nutrients.
