Our Puppies

 

At Sassy Kennel we take pride in knowing that we sell purebred Boston Terriers of the highest quality.

While selling puppies does provide a second income for us, profit is not our primary goal. Quite simply, we are hobbyist dog breeders, and have been for more than 30 years.

Our main interest is enjoying the company of these affectionate dogs, and showing them at Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) dog shows.

 

More important than its champion lineage is the fact that your new puppy is going to be a member of the family. Known as the American Gentleman, the Boston Terrier is lively, smart, and affectionate with a gentle, even temperament.
