    I haven't found any information on anything like this, and my mom has had two bostons--one female and one male--and she's never heard anything about it.

    Here's a good site for you icecold:

    A French Bulldog would tick all the boxes for you. Compact, smooth coated, not a barker, and can be a couch potato, but having said that, mine enjoys a long walk more than anything else. On the other side of the spectrum, a Mastiff is also a good choice.

    I'm surprised I didn't see this mentioned, but how about an Italian greyhound? A friend of mine has two of them, and they strike me as the absolutely perfect apartment dogs. Their hair is so fine and short its not a problem at all. The ones I know live with several large dogs and can definately hold their own in rough-and-tumble games. They also get along great with cats and children. They like to run and play outside, but are perfectly happy with just relaxing on the couch.

    hi
    i live in a 3 bed first floor flat and have a rhodesian ridgeback cross boxer he is great with children, great guard dog, loving pet and can go to the park when he wants.
    he goes to wee out the balcony(until he trained better only 5 months old)
    any size dog is good for a flat its the way you bring them up.

    I still think if you do the research and are prepared to offer the necessary exercise you can have whatever dog you wish. If you get something active you will need to find a place to over serious exercise that is all.

    staffie!

    I would recomend a staffordshire bull terrier. they are not too big. their coat is short. they protect their family and good with children and other dogs. They love to play fetch. they grow no larger than 35 pounds. Just remember to buy one from a responsible breeder! Just to ensure that your puppy will have a good temperment.
