She will bark, bite, and generally act like an a-hole if it gets her attention. The recommendation is to ignore them when they do this, but when the negative behavior involved trying to tear apart your furniture, it's impossible to just walk away.
Recommendation by who? I've never heard this from any of my vet friends. If anything, it gets worse because you're not addressing it right away and giving the puppy attention/discipline that it needs.
EDIT: Forgot your puppy is Boston Terrier mix. Like I said before on here, they're known to chew anything. You got to be pretty consistent on discipline whenever they're chewing on something they shouldn't be. Put her back in the crate for like 10 minutes every time she does it and ignore her while she's in the crate. She'll learn that it's bad to chew/bite. If you decide to not do that one time, then she think its ok to do that.
