What is the price range for a Boston Terrier?  Does the price differ if the dog is not used for showing purposes?

Hi April,

I am not a breeder and cannot claim to be knowledgeable on many aspects of breeding, but have been researching Boston terriers myself and am in process of trying to get one.  They are a very intelligent and affectionate breed.  Companions from a reputable breeder seem to range from about $650-800 while show dogs are around $950 and up.  Please be careful - there are a lot of "puppy mills" out there that aren't responsible breeders.  This can cause sad long-term health issues. Your puppy, should you choose to get one, should have CERF testing (eyes) and OFA Patella certification(knee).  There is also a Baer test for hearing, which is offered less frequently.  Be aware that dogs with too much white or blue eyes are more likely to have hearing problems.  It is really nice if you can meet the dog's parents to see their temperament.  I am not sure where you're from, but BBunch1024@aol.com is with the Boston Terrier Club of America and she can give you a list of reputable breeders in your state.  Again, these are great dogs...good luck to you.  Hope this helps

well, april i have to say i am from a small town in texas and have feel madly in love with boston terriers i have 3. 2 females and 1 male. my close friend sold them to me for $100.00 when we obviously know they are worth more. Now my female has just had puppies for her first time 6 to be exact and then other female should be expecting next week. now being that i live in a small town i am going to sell them for $200.00. but the correct range would be around $700-$850. i just don't think they would sell here for that price.great dogs good luck hope this was useful.

Hi April,
I have a Boston and his name is Willie.
He just turned 7 last week.
I got him as a pup for $600.00 from a breeder.
I saw dogs at pet stores for more than that.
So you get a better selection and a better deal at
breeders. I hope I helped.

I just bought a female BT in July. She was $600 from a breeder in FL.  Her website is www.blue-skyz.com. Females are usually $100 to $300 more than males. A smaller BT (sometimes called teacup) will sometimes be more money than a larger one from the same litter, as well as a BT with perfect markings. Yes, small towns or rural areas will sell BT'sfor around $300, like in upstate NY.  Pet stores usually will be more. However, a pet store in Brooklyn wanted only $500 (most likely shipped from a puppy mill). One pet store in Long Island, NY, wanted $1,000 for a male and $1,200 for a female.  Outrageous!!  A local breeder on Long Island wanted $1,200.  Her BT'swere most likely show dog quality with perfect markings. I recommend buying from a breeder where you can meet the puppy's parents!!  My puppy has the same great personality of her mom: calm and layed back. BT'sare a great breed. They have short hair, so they are easy to groom and keep clean. A short tail, so they can't knock over anything on the coffee table.

I am on my forth Boston, my first one I had for 17 years, the second was a rescue do ( the lady loved him and wanted him to go to a good home), Third one bought for my dad, my baby I have now is a year, bought him from a breeder I found in the news paper, if at all possible meet the parents. I met his mom, dad and brothers and sisters from two other litters. The only problem is sometimes they don't know they are dogs, they are our children. I too hunted for a long time to find the right breeder its worth it.

Hello April,
             My family has been raising Boston Terriers since 1948 the best advice I can give anyone is get your puppy from a responsible breeder, they may be a little more expensive up front but compared to the medical bills and heartbreak you will encounter from a backyard breeder it is money well spent.
Ask about the health test done on the parents prior to breeding, Patella's, Eye's, and hearing?  Ask if the breeder is involved in dog shows? a GOOD breeder is involved in showing their dogs and are breeding to the Standard.
also be ready to awnser alot of questions a GOOD breeder wants to place their puppies in the best home possible.
Run don't walk away from Backyard breeders, Kitchen breeders and puppy mills.

YES!! we do have expensive puppies but we do give full written guarantees and they are worth every penny!!!! We are not a puppy mill, and our dogs are raised inside, and have the best personalities!! best of breeding! and best of care!!We require a contract signed that we have first choice in buying our puppies back if someone cannot keep him or her. Not all cars are the same price, and not all Bostons are the same price!  WE also will not sell one to just anyone!!! you must have the right kind of home!!! anyone can visit our web site and see for themselves!

I am on my second Boston Terrier and I paid $500 for the female and 450 for the male (12 years later).  I think recently, due to the popularity of the breed, the prices are becoming inflated.  Judge for yourself from the puppy's demeanor and the breeders attitude towards the dogs. Don't bother with show dog prices if you want a family dog! There are lots of Boston mixes at pounds.

Hi! My husband and I are looking for a boston terrier puppy to join our family. We live in Herndon, VA in a townhouse, and are currently installing a fence so our little pup can have its own yard to play in. We prefer a male that has the typical tuxedo markings, and we would like to deal with a reputable breeder to minimize the possibility of health problems. However, most of the breeders we have spoken with do not do testing (e.g. CERF, OFA). We are willing to spend 600-700 (including shipping, if not nearby). We will drive pretty much anywhere in VA, MD, PA, DE, and southern NJ to pick up our pup. If you have a pup available in April or early May, or know of a reputable breeder who does, please let me know! (randisavage@yahoo.com) Thanks so much!

My female Boston cost $1200 from the breeder someone mentioned earlier on Long Island. My dog is absolutely gorgeous, with perfect markings, and not a hint of white in her eyes. Though her parents weren't shown, she comes from a long line of Champion and American Champion Bostons. Because the breed has many health issues, I think it's worth paying that little bit extra.

I knew nothing about BT's but went to my local animal shelter in VA to adopt a pet. They had a 2yr old male Boston Terrier purebred.  He is brindle color with perfect markings. He had been there for 2days; I felt so sorry for him, he was scared to death. His owner had developed Alzheimer's, had no family so the  nurse who was caring for the man  took "Scooter" to the local pound.  I couldn't resist him.  He is a big lovable baby, and great with my grandkids. He has already visited the vet for a checkup. Our Vet was amazed that we found him at the animal shelter. He told us he was a great specimen of the BT breed.   We will give him a loving forever home.  After reading the previous post, I realize now what a great breed of dog I purchased for $25.  He has already stolen our hearts!!

I have two adorable male purebred Boston Pups, mom and dad on site. I am asking $500 each. They will be smaller, mom is only 9 lbs and dad is 11. I took both the mom and dad in , mom was already pregnant. I see nobody has mentioned the high cost of vet care to keep the mom healthy during pregnancy, sonagrams, etc.. and with my female she needed an emergency C Section,which was extremely expensive.. as I had taken  her  in already pregnant , the people didnt know her due date, so I couldnt pre schedule the C Section. Bostons obviously are prone to Sections because of their large heads, and thats what happened to the girl I took in. Unfortunatly, 2 pups died, but 2 made it and are chubby and healthy. I feel if someone cant afford $500 for a lifetime pet, they arent the home I would be looking for, for these special guys. Located in the Niagara Falls Ny area, and can send pics of the pups.

I have a male BT that I purchased for $475. I was originally set to purchase one for $850 but found this breeder instead. I would say that you get what you pay for.  He is the most wonderful, lovable dog I've ever come across. A true testament to the breed. However, the cheap breeder apparently did not worm the puppies or feed them properly. I went to pick up the puppy at what I thought was the breeders home by the directions given. She was directing people to a home that was behind a Burger King and they would be outside in the yard with the pups and the parents. Not the case! The BK was there, the "yard" was a grassy area next to the BK. That's right! I have a puppy from a puppy mill. Many people would have left. I couldn't. I realize I enabled this person to continue her business, but I just couldn't leave him there. If I could have I would've purchased them all. It makes me love him more knowing that I rescued him from a poor beginning. Be careful. When searching for a new member of your family, it's worth spending more in the beginning. We spent more in vet bills than we would have if we bought from the original breeder.

Hi, I bought my puppy in April of 2005 for $600. The breeder was ok but his kids were a nightmare so we're glad we took our pup outta that house. He had some dietary issues (our vet recommended Science Diet which cause digestive issues), anyways, he's the best!! I'm looking into getting a second one. My only recommendation is to trust your gut and buy from someone that truly loves their pets (our breeder loved his dogs more than his kids!). You can't put a price on the unconditional love of a loyal pet!!

One of the price problems for BT's now relates to the recent national TV ads using BT's. As soon as those ads began appearing in 2005, the price for a pet quality BT jumped by about $300. Three years ago, my wife and I bought a perfectly marked AKC BT male for $250, then the going price. When we began looking for another AKC one last year, we ran into prices ranging from a minimum of $500 upward to $2,000. After searching for a year, we finally found one for $350. One problem is that the CKC will accept AKC bred dogs, but not visa versa, so keep that in mind. CKC's usually sell for slightly less than AKC's.

I just purchased a 5yr. old  from the paper. She has the best temperment, and when I went to see her the first thing she did was lick me. I could not resist. I had done some research on  before I bought her so I was pretty aware of what to look for. Unfortunately she does have one blue eye and one brown. I asked the owner about it and she said that the dog was born like that, and that she doesn't have any problems. "Bella" can see fine, and here perfect, would a  with blue eyes be born deaf or could it develop over time? She is registered, and was breed twice before I got her, she is only 5, but is it smart to breed her any more, I have no problems spaying her.

I just Purchased a Boston terrier from Moondoggies a pet store in orange, he is so adorable, I originally wanted a french bulldog but due to all the health problems the dogs face with their respiratory system, I decided to get a boston terrier, I purchased a 4 month old male pup for $1600, looking at the prices listed I think i might have over paid, but I'm content with my cute pup thus far.  I know you always over pay @ petshops but I don't know any breeders in my area, I would like to purchase a female though, if you know of any breeders in California I live in Ontario, please let me know, and if you have any info on the mature size of boston, I wanna know appox. how big he will get, and any special instructions on how to care for him!  Thankx a bunch

I have a Boston Terrier that I adopted from a Boston Terrier Rescue.  I paid an adoption fee of $275 for a not-exactly breed standard Boston.  She is completely white and deaf.  But it shouldn't be the markings that make you want to take the dog into your life, it should be the personality.  I wouldn't sell her for a trillion dollars and haven't even thought that I wish she looked more like a typical Boston.  Her deafness does not affect her lifestyle.  I would recommend seeking a dog from a rescue before searching out a breeder and definitely before purchasing one from a pet store.

I live with my boyfriend, Dan, and he bought a Boston Terrier 6 months ago. Dan grew up with them and missed having them as a pet for years. I grew up with a big dog...a Lab...his name was Yogi. He died when I was 22 years old, and at the time I was devastated and thought I could never love another dog again. Now I'm 44 and have fallen in love with our Boston Terrier. Her name is Casey, and she is the sweetest dog you could ever know. Although they can get tempermental when they don't get their way, they are very loving and devoted. If Dan and I leave the room she is in, she will get up immediately and start looking for one of us...they don't like being left alone (unless they are crated, and they do great...they are calm in the crate). I didn't think I would like a small breed because I thought they all barked, but BT'srarely bark, unless you're playing with them and teach them to bark...Casey knows our hand signal for "Speak" and she'll bark when she sees it. I have thanked Dan (who I have always called my puppy!) for bringing this second puppy into my life. They both make my heart full. :-)

The parents are AKC registered and I have lineage information for the grandparents as well. The dogs can be delivered within a 800 mile radius form my location for an extra $100.00. Please contact me if you are interested in these fine dogs. The Boston Terrier breed is a wonderful breed of dog.
