20 Boston Terrier Mixes

Emma Stenhouse

The adorable Boston Terrier is playful, affectionate, and full of energy. This popular breed does have a few health issues due to their short muzzles and brachycephalic face shape. The good news is that choosing a hybrid breed puppy, with one Boston Terrier parent and one parent of another breed, can reduce many of these issues. Remember, though, if the Boston Terrier is bred with another flat-faced breed, the puppies will most likely have the same health issues that affect their parent breeds.

When it comes to mixed breeds, there are plenty to choose from. We rounded up our 20 favorite Boston Terrier mixes. Check them all out, and see which one is the perfect pup for your family!

1. Boglen Terrier (Boston Terrier x Beagle)

Weight: 12 – 30 pounds
Life Expectancy: 10 – 15 years

The Boglen Terrier is an energetic breed with plenty of personality. These little dogs are smart, but thanks to the combination of Beagle and Terrier genes, they can be independent. Positive reinforcement is the best way to persuade your pup to enjoy training sessions. They may not be able to resist chasing after local wildlife, so on-leash walks and a secure backyard are essential.


2. Bostchon (Boston Terrier x Bichon Frise)

Weight: 12 – 18 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 15 years

These adorable dogs are affectionate, eager to please, and intelligent. They can be a little vocal, and prefer to have company most of the time rather than be left home alone. They will adore going on adventures with you, and luckily, they’re small enough to come with you everywhere!


3. Brusston (Boston Terrier x Brussels Griffon)

Weight: 7 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 15 years

These lively little dogs can have a wide weight range, and you won’t know exactly what size your pup will end up. As both these breeds are flat-faced, or brachycephalic, your puppy will likely end up with a few of the health conditions associated with these breeds. These can include breathing difficulties, eye problems, and oral issues.


4. English Boston Bulldog (Boston Terrier x English Bulldog)

Weight: 12 – 50 pounds
Life Expectancy: 8 – 13 years

These sweet dogs can end up weighing anything from 12-50 pounds, although that won’t stop them from wanting to cuddle up on your lap! With their short coat, they’re relatively low maintenance in terms of grooming. As both the parent breeds have flat faces, you’ll need to bear in mind that your pup may have the same health problems associated with brachycephalic breeds.


5. Cairoston (Boston Terrier x Cairn Terrier)

Weight: 12 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 10 – 12 years

This cute mix has a full-on Terrier personality! They will be smart, independent, vocal, and a little stubborn! They’ll need plenty of positive reinforcement training and exercise. Thanks to their Terrier parentage, they’ll also have a high prey drive. They can live with cats, as long as they’re carefully introduced. A secure yard is essential because this mix loves to chase the local wildlife!


6. Chibo (Boston Terrier x Chihuahua)

Weight: 6 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 10 – 15 years

Also known as the Bohuaha, this small breed has stacks of personality! They’re also energetic, so they will need plenty of exercise. They can suit apartment or urban life as long as their needs for mental and physical stimulation are met. Doing regular training classes is a great idea for this mix, as they’ll love the opportunity to learn new skills and interact with other dogs.


7. Sharbo (Boston Terrier x Chinese Shar-Pei)

Weight: 12 – 60 pounds
Life Expectancy: 8 – 13 years

These two parent breeds are wildly different in terms of weight, so be prepared that your puppy could end up maturing smaller or larger than you were expecting! The appearance of different puppies within the same litter can vary too. Shar-Peis can suffer from health problems associated with their loose skin, so that’s something to remember about this mix.


8. Boston Spaniel (Boston Terrier x Cocker Spaniel)

Weight: 12 – 30 pounds
Life Expectancy: 10 – 14 years

This is one of the most popular Boston Terrier mixes, and once you meet one, you’ll understand why! These affectionate and sociable dogs are cheerful, smart, and just love hanging out with their families. Puppies generally inherit a longer muzzle from their Cocker Spaniel parent, so they are less prone to the breathing difficulties that can affect Boston Terriers.


9. Bodach (Boston Terrier x Dachshund)

Weight: 5 – 30 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 16 years

This adorably cute mix usually ends up producing intelligent and energetic puppies that bond strongly with their owners. Your puppy may end up with the long back of the Dachshund, in which case, you need to speak to your vet about how to minimize health problems that can affect long-backed breeds.


10. Frenchton (Boston Terrier x French Bulldog)

Weight: 12 – 28 pounds
Life Expectancy: 10 – 13 years

The Frenchton can be fairly low maintenance in terms of grooming and exercise, but they can suffer from a range of different health problems due to their short muzzles. They do not cope well with hot or humid weather, and owners need to make sure their pups aren’t over-exerted in hot weather. Skipping the walks and hanging out in a cool air-conditioned home is best in the summer.


11. Bojack (Boston Terrier x Jack Russell Terrier)

Weight: 12 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 16 years

Two Terrier parents make the Bojack a breed to be reckoned with! These fun little dogs will always be on the go, so make sure you have enough time and energy to keep them well entertained! They’ll likely have a high prey drive, so care needs to be taken to keep them on a leash when you’re out and about. They may be able to live with cats, as long as they’re carefully introduced.


12. Boston Lab (Boston Terrier x Labrador Retriever)

Weight: 12 – 80 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 13 years

This slightly unusual mix can end up weighing anything from 12-80 pounds once fully mature. You just won’t know what size your puppy is going to end up! This mix is smart, loyal, and friendly to family and strangers alike. They will need a reasonable amount of exercise and may inherit the dense double-coat of their Labrador parent, in which case, prepare for plenty of brushing at shedding season!


13. Bosapso (Boston Terrier x Lhasa Apso)

Weight: 12 – 15 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 15 years

These adorable little dogs might be small, but they have plenty of personality and spirit! They are people-oriented and may suffer from separation anxiety. Puppies usually inherit the longer muzzle and profuse coats of their Lhasa Apso parent, which means they suffer from fewer health problems than Boston Terriers, but they need more grooming to keep that coat tangle-free.


14. Minpin (Boston Terrier x Miniature Pinscher)

Weight: 8 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 16 years

This sweet mix will often end up looking more like their Miniature Pinscher parent, which is good news because their longer muzzle means fewer health problems. You will need to invest plenty of time and energy into training your new dog, as they can have a stubborn streak. They’re also energetic and need plenty of active walks to keep them content.


15. Bostillon (Boston Terrier x Papillon)

Weight: 5 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 16 years

These cute little dogs are cheerful and intelligent and love to please their owners. Bostillon puppies usually inherit the large upright ears of their parents, but they may not end up with as full a coat as a Papillon. This mix usually loves to please their owners and will enjoy any activity that means you get to hang out together.


16. Bostinese (Boston Terrier x Pekingese)

Weight: 7 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 14 years

If both the parent breeds here have flat faces, your Bostinese puppy will likely inherit the same health problems. These can include breathing problems, eye issues, and poor oral health. Some of these puppies can be loyal to their owners and a little wary of strangers. They can also be vocal. You’ll need to socialize your puppy to accept visitors.


17. Pomston (Boston Terrier x Pomeranian)

Weight: 3 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 16 years

Pomston puppies are usually small and fluffy. They’re attached to their owners, so they won’t enjoy being left home alone while you’re at work. Wherever you go, your pup will want to go too! They can have long hair, which means you’ll need to dedicate at least 20 minutes per day to grooming. You can also get their coat trimmed into a puppy cut, which makes for a lower maintenance option.


18. Bossipoo (Boston Terrier x Poodle)

Weight: 10 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 10 – 18 years

The adorable Bossipoo is an intelligent and active mix that adores hanging out with their owners. They usually inherit the low-shedding coat of their Poodle parent, as well as their longer muzzle. This makes them low-maintenance in terms of grooming and usually healthier than their Boston Terrier parent, which can suffer from health problems due to their flat faces.


19. Bugg (Boston Terrier x Pug)

Weight: 12 – 25 pounds
Life Expectancy: 11 – 15 years

Crossing two incredibly popular breeds to create the Bugg, these puppies are lively and love everyone around them. Unfortunately, due to their short muzzles, they can suffer from many of the same health issues that affect other brachycephalic breeds. This can end up costing you a great deal in vet’s bills, so make sure you’re prepared for that eventuality if you take in a Bugg.


20. Boshih (Boston Terrier x Shih Tzu)

Weight: 9 – 16 pounds
Life Expectancy: 10 – 18 years

These cute little dogs are vocal, energetic, and love attention from their families. They’re a good choice for apartment or urban living, as long as you commit to training them so they’re not too vocal. As both their parent breeds have flat faces, your Boshih puppy may end up with a few of the same health issues. These can include eye problems, oral issues, and breathing difficulties, which can become worse in warm or humid weather.
