More About Boston Terrier Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier. **5.17.17** Hey Y'all! Nick here. I'm 10-11 years old and I'm energetic and I LOVE to cuddle up with you in bed or on the couch. I am all about my people and I struggle when you leave the house. Foster Mom Lady is helping me with my separation anxiety. She set me up with this really awesome crate that is a like a man cave. I feel so safe and secure in it. I'm doing better with being left alone. I am a work in progress. Did you know I have the CUTEST tail? It's about 2.5 inches long and I can wag it lightening fast like a hummingbirds wings. Foster Mom Lady calls it my pet hummingbird! I have lots of personality and enjoy car rides. I need a home with dogs that are my size or smaller. ******************************************************************** ***Update 2.17.17*** **ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS** Hi! It's me Nick! Well I'm out of surgery and they said I did really well. Turns out I had to have 3 teeth extracted. Foster Mom Lady says that would explain my funky breath! I had that mass removed off my back. It's nothing to be worried about but it sure looks rough. I heard Foster Mom Lady call me FrankenNick. Oh and I got the big Neuter today. Such a big day. I'm still feeling loopy! Foster Mom Lady had to put the cone on me and my harness came off once we were in the car since it's so close to my incision. I have some good pain pills, plus topical arnica to help with pain and swelling, and cold laser treatments to help my incision heal. *yawn* I'm so sleepy still. Time for another nap! ❤️ Nick Nick's vet bill today was $270.00. If you would like to help with Nick's vet bill, please send your PayPal donation to donation@americanbostonterrierrescue.org or you can mail it to ABTR PO Box 1286 Little Elm, TX 75068. Thank you for supporting our foster pups! ******************************************************************** **UPDATE 1.17.17**VET HOLD**ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS** (Bonded with Nora and must be adopted together.) Nick: He is aged at 10 years old. He weighs 16.2 pounds. He is heartworm negative. He needs to be neutered and the growth on his back removed at that time. The pupil in one of his eyes dilates and retracts sluggishly. This suggests a neurological issue and we are working with animal chiropractic vets on this. Once this has been rehabbed, then he will cleared to be neutered and have that growth removed. The vets all agree that the growth is not cancerous. Nick also needs a dental. So he has a surgery in his future. Today's bill for Nick was $271.92. If you would like to contribute to his care you can send a PayPal donation to donation@americanbostonterrierrescue.org or mail your donation to ABTRR PO Box 1286, Little Elm, TX 75068 *************************************************************************************************************************** Introducing Nick! Nick was rescued from a very abusive and neglectful situation. Nick was locked in a linen closet where he was made to do his business where he slept. He was not provided adequate food or water. Nick is very outgoing and has a big need to be near his person or where he can see his person. His being locked in the closet all the time has made him nervous about being separated. We are working on this. His tail has its own personality and wags a mile a minute! It's like it's part hummingbird! Nick has some lumps and bumps that we will have checked out this coming week. Nick and Nora are a bonded pair and will have to be adopted together once they are ready to be adopted. We guesstimate them to be about 10-11 years old.

      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier. Hi! I'm Poco Grande but my foster Mom calls me Pocahontas. I'm 12-13 years young and I'm blind from cataracts, but I do see some shadows. I love a soft cushy bed to nap in. I love evening strolls by the lake and sunbathing. I have been struggling with some cervical neck issues that have caused me lots of pain in the past. Foster Mom Lady took me to an animal chiropractor and got me fixed right up. I'm now pain free and feeling good! I am pretty scared of thunderstorms and we have been having those a lot lately. Foster Mom Lady keeps me near her and this helps me feel safe.

      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). **Vet Hold ** Update 5.4.17 Daisy’s skin condition continues to confound the experts. She has been under the care of multiple veterinarians and two dermatology specialists over the past three years, and all they have been able to tell us is that she suffers from “seasonal allergies”. Translation – she’s allergic to different grasses, pollens, dust mites, and that applies to all seasons. The most success we’ve had to date is a result of homeopathic care, a raw diet, and several natural remedies. To answer some of the most-often asked questions: *Yes, she has undergone extensive allergy testing. She is sensitive to all sorts of grasses, pollens, dust mites, and a host of additional offenders. *Yes, she has been on Apoquel (and other immunosuppressive drugs) – that did not help. *Yes, she is on a limited ingredient, grain-free diet. All of ABTRR’s dogs are fed a species-appropriate diet which is 100% grain-free. *Yes, she has been through multiple feeding trials with novel proteins – to no avail. Her allergy testing showed no sensitivities to beef or chicken – the two proteins we feed regularly. Daisy’s foster mom is working diligently with our veterinary team to sort out her issues and heal her little body. We will update her bio as new discoveries are made and as she gets closer to being ready for adoption. Thanks! *************************************************************************************** Update 1.22.17 Daisy is back with us. She was adopted out to her new family with all her medical history. Her new family was very aware of her severe allergies. They still wanted her knowing that she had this medical need. They promised to provide her with her prescribed medications to manage her allergies. Sadly they did not and returned her to us. She's a hot mess of allergies and inflamed skin. We are starting back at square one with her. Our focus is on healing her from the inside out! This starts with biologically appropriate and nutrient dense food. She is eating BARF (www.barfworld.com to learn more). Healing and rehabbing dogs starts with getting them appropriate nutrition. All of this care and nutrition is not cheap! We are only able to provide this level care with your support. If you would like to donate to Daisy's care please send your PayPal donation to donation@americanbostonterrierrescue.org or you can mail your donation to ABTRR PO Box 1286, Little Elm, TX 75068. We are a 501c3 and your donation is tax deductible. ************************************************************************************************************************** How do you do? My name is Daisy! I am a 4 yr old beautiful Southern Belle who will soon be in search of my forever home. I am currently being fostered in the DFW (Texas) area. Let me tell you a bit about myself: I am crate trained, potty trained, no anxiety, non-destructive, expert snuggler and I know how to "sit" and "come" on command. I love all the dogs here in my foster home and I am also good with dog-respectful children. My foster home describes me as a lovely, mannerly girl who is a true joy to have in their home. I have skin allergies and I have seen a Dermatology Specialist who has let my rescue know that these are seasonal allergies. I would benefit from a home that has experience with allergies and can help manage through my seasonal allergies. I do enjoy my weekly medicated baths and I do not fuss one bit.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier. **5.17.17** I'm Gage and I'm the youngest dog in the ABTRR Foster Program. My rescue sure was surprised when I ended up being 2 years old instead of the 10 the shelter thought I was. I have some neurological issues that cause me to have some mobility challenges. I have Horner's Syndrome. This syndrome is treatable but I require monthly chiropractic treatments and daily physical therapy to help me overcome my neurological challenges. I am a busy guy, as any young BT normally is. I'm super sweet and love a good chew and to go for walks and car rides. ******************************************************************** Hello! It's me Gage! I'm feeling a bit whoozie after my surgery today! Foster Mom got a call this morning while I was under and the Doc said I had a rotten molar that needed to come out. So I'm minus a tooth today as well as my wallies. Foster Mom says I don't need those wallies! So we are headed home now so I can sleep off this anesthesia. My vet bill today was $77.40 for my neuter and tooth extraction! If you would like to donate towards my vet bill, you can PayPal your donation to donation@americanbostonterrierresescue.org or mail it to ABTRR PO Box 1286, Little Elm, TX 75068. Gage ******************************************************************** ***Update 1.17.17*** Gage: we got a quite a shock today when the vet told us she would surprised if he was 1.5 years old. The shelter told us he was 10+ years old. They were quite wrong. However Gage has some special needs. He some needs some extra groceries that he is getting and he has some neurological issues that we are rehabbing with animal chiropractic veterinarians. Gage needs to be neutered and is scheduled for surgery on January 30th. Today's bill for Gage was $251.92. If you would like to contribute to his care you can send in a PayPal donation to donation@americanbostonterrierrescue.org or mail your donation to ABTRR PO Box 1286, Little Elm, TX 75068 Introducing Gage! He came from a kill shelter out in far West Texas! Thank you to BTRNT for pulling and assisting with transport! The shelter estimated he was 10+ years old but he's much younger than that. He is very playful with nice white teeth. He's gray in the face but I'd guess him between 3-5 years old. He's very malnourished and underweight! He also has something going on with his front feet when he walks and changes direction. He stumbles as if he is drunk. Very odd. He has some scarring on both eyes the can be due to scar tissue from and ulcer or his eye was scratched at some point. We are unsure at this point how much of his vision is impacted. This boy needs some biologically appropriate nutrition STAT! He is now on the BARF Diet and eating 24oz a day! He has to eat at least this much to put weight back on. This means he will be eating 2 cases of BARF a month. Each case costs $124 so two cases would be $248 for a month. We are huge proponents of healing a dog from the inside out starting with biologically appropriate and nutrient dense food! If you would like to donate to Gage's food fund you can send your PayPal donation to donation@americanbostonterrierrescue.org . We sure appreciate your support and helping us rehab Gage from the inside out! If you would like to learn more about this diet, please visit www.barfworld.com .

      Darwin

      rescue
      Breed: Boston Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier / Mixed. ~~Meet Darwin! Darwin, aka Darwin G. Knickerbocker, is a 5-6 year old Boston Terrier mix. We’re not sure what he is mixed with, but he has floppy ears, a full tail, and he’s got a good bit of gold in his coat that makes him appear brindle in the sunlight. He exhibits herding and pointing behaviors so there’s a good chance he’s mixed with a herding dog (like a Border Collie or Aussie), and probably a hunting-type dog (like a Lab). There’s really no telling what his heritage is without a genetic test, but we do know that he’s a fun-loving, relatively active dog who loves to go for long walks, an occasional jog, and he loves to chew on cow hooves. Darwin’s History… Darwin’s right eye was ruptured when we found him in a shelter. Judging from the scrapes and other wounds on his face and body, it appeared he had been in a tussle with another animal. We pulled him from the shelter, had him neutered and his ruptured eye removed ASAP, and he went to a foster home to recuperate. It wasn’t long before we realized that Darwin was quite protective of his right side – and his right rear leg, in particular. That’s not surprising since he had just lost sight on that side, and we imagine his right knee was also injured somewhere along the way. Fast forward almost a year… Darwin was adopted, but he was returned last summer because he ended up fighting with the resident dog. Due to the nature of the fights, we opted to enroll Darwin in an immersive board and train program with a certified dog trainer where he earned high marks during the eight week program. The trainer identified a couple triggers for Darwin and worked diligently to begin desensitizing him. Darwin has been in his current foster home (DFW area, TX) since late last summer and his foster mom continues to work on desensitizing him to his triggers, while socializing him with other dogs. He has even been “interviewed” and approved to join a doggie play group at a local doggie daycare facility. He visits his friends and favorite camp counselors a few times a month to reinforce his socialization and burn some energy in the play yards. Darwin is a smart boy who loves to play. He can be a little rambunctious and he’s larger than a normal Boston Terrier so a dog-savvy, active home with older children (10+) would be ideal. Resident dog(s) should be relatively easy-going to ensure a good match.
