Hyperactive Boston Terrier
(Green Bay, WI)
My girlfriend has one Boston Terrier in her family and it's activeness borders on insane. She is about a year to a year and a half old and is fixed. Any time someone enters the home she is immediately jumping at their legs wanting to sniff and lick what she can.
Even sitting down on the couch she runs around you seemingly trying to find out "what you're doing." only after a half an hour does she settle down and sit, but usually she's running rampant.
She continually licks everything she finds interesting... The carpet, hands, feet, couch cushions, towels, etc.
However, the worst part about her is that she, literally, needs to be the center of everything. Whether it's watching a movie, sitting with my girlfriend on the couch, laying in bed, or sleeping. She needs to be in the middle of something.
TV: If you're by yourself, she finds a way to be in between you and the TV, yet she never seems to pay attention to either (the person or the TV)
Sitting on the couch watching TV with another person: Takes any chance she gets to fit her way in between the two people and stays still for 10 seconds every 1 minute only to stare off into space and start licking faces or body parts.
Laying in bed: Does the same thing as above if you're with someone else
Sleeping: I like to sleep with my legs spread apart and this dog absolutely LOVES sleeping in between them, on top of the blanket. So it makes it unbelievably hard to move your legs when sleeping.
I understand that some dogs are just very very active, but this seems so incredibly ridiculous that it's hard to restrain frustration.
I scold her whenever she disobeys direction but it feels almost like talking to a cat... but instead of just ignoring you she just jumps on you and tries to be in your face at all times.
