Is the Boston Terrier / Poodle (Toy) Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Bossi-Poo

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Bossi-Poo is a cross between a pure Boston Terrier and a pure Poodle, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While many so-called designer crosses with Poodles are performed out of the belief that their hair is hypoallergenic, be aware that many allergy suffers react to the dander (skin cells), not hair. Always check with your doctor before you take home a supposedly hypoallergenic dog.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Bossi-Poo is especially variable, with some individuals having the curly coats of the Poodle while others have the short coat of the Boston Terrier. Using a Toy Poodle in the cross gives you the best chance of ending up with the smallest Bossi-Poo.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Bossi-Poo is a cross of two popular companion breeds, and a well-socialized animal should make a devoted pet who loves to play with its human family. Expect a highly social animal that shouldn't be left alone and lonely for long hours at a time.
