Adding a Second Female Boston Terrier Dog. Any problems?


Here is a question from Carrie asking other Boston Terrier owners about two female Boston Terrier dogs living together.

She says : “Hi I’m a Boston Terrier owner we have one female and would like to add a second. I have been told that two females may have more problems getting along do you have an opinion? Any help would be greatly appreciated!”

Does anyone have any advices or experiences?

I have 2 girls living together! For the most part, they get along like 2 siblings! Kaia is 8 yrs old and Anja almost 2. They will argue about toys only. They sleep together and you can always feel their love for each other!!

Best chance is if they are spayed, every dog is different😍

It’s all good until they go to a party together and realize they’re both wearing the same thing.

We have had 2 boys and we now have two girls. We didn’t/haven’t had trouble with any of them getting along. Benson was still alive when we got Bella and she was too feisty for him so we added Phoebe. They all played hard and wrestled as young pups but just became really good friends. I think girls have been a lot of affectionate, a lot more involved in our lives. I wouldn’t hesitate to have two more in the future.

We have two females, ages 12 and 6, and they get along quite well together, except for the occasional mild scuffle when they want to play with the same toy.

Preston Gordon

As long as you dont show attention to 1 more than the other iv never had a problem mixing or adding new ones in. They are smart dogs they just have to know they arnt loved less and they will be happy

Michael Goodell

We have two females and they are mother and daughter and it’s a constant power struggle in the house. I know it sounds like something out of Game of Thrones, but it’s almost as dramatic with the attention hogging, and favorite picking (human picking we call it) It get almost soap opera at times until a the house divides (dogs) and they go to war (the dogs) and lines are drawn blood is shed flesh is torn and feelings are hurt, after what seems like an eternity of trying to seperate and scold the two factions peace and calm begins… Read more »

We have two females and they are mother and daughter, as well as three males fixed two are litter mates and one brood male, and it’s a constant power struggle in the house. I know it sounds like something out of Game of Thrones, but it’s almost as dramatic with the attention hogging, and favorite picking (human picking we call it) It’s like watching a soap opera at times until the “Dogs” divide the house and go to war, at which time the “Dogs” pick sides and draw lines in the sand. This is when blood is shed, flesh is… Read more »

I had two female Bostons. One was older and the other had a litter of babies and the new mother shared the care of the pups with the older one. The new mother also shared caring for new kittens . Never had any problems with jealousy between the two female BB ‘s. Penny was the younger one and Daisy was the older female.

Doris Gillmore

I do. Lilly is 10 and been with me for about 8 years. Chloe is 5 and only been here for 4 months. They play with toys, run in the yard, nap together, eat together. BFFs! Both are rescue moms. Chloe is still learning to be a pet dog.
