Boston Terrier, 12-15 years

Boston Terriers have a similar look to the Pug but have a history of having been bred for use as fighting dogs. Today though, they’re sweet and companionable and what some may call “dapper”. And just like their name insinuates, they make great pets for small urban living situations.

Boston Terriers are famously good-tempered and make great pets for families with children and/or older people. While they are mildly susceptible to heat stress, you can bet your Boston Terrier is going to live to between 12-15 years.
