The Bostinese

The Bostinese is a cross between a Boston Terrier and a Pekignese. This cross is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club and can be registered through their organization.

The Boston/Pekignese mix has a medium-to-long length coat, which may be smooth or wavy. The coat can be nearly any color. Regular brushing (every day or two) and occasional bathing (as needed) will keep their coats looking their best. They weigh between 10 and 22 pounds, and are 8 to 16 inches tall.

Boston Terrier/Pekignese mixes are alert and gentle, but independent. They generally make good pets, however, temperament can vary greatly. If they inherit the Boston Terrier temperament, they will tend to get along well with children and other pets in the home. If they inherit the Pekignese temperament, they may not be a great fit for a home with children or other pets.

They can be difficult to housebreak, but will respond well to gentle but firm, and consistent training. These dogs need a moderate level of exercise, either in a fenced yard or daily walks on a leash, to keep them healthy and happy.

Average life expectancy for this mix is 12 to 15 years.
