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. 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.

      Location: Little Elm, TX
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier. ***VET HOLD*** 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 . If you choose to purchase this food for your dog, please use our affiliate code 1109 at check out! BARF World donates a portion of your purchase to our rescue further helping us help dogs in need!

      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). ***Adoption Pending*** EXTRA, EXTRA read all about Doug! I was dumped at the kill shelter when my owner didn't want to provide the medical care for my injured eye, I guess my life had no value to them. Thank goodness ABTR was able to see my life was worth a fortune! I am a handsome 5 yr old boy and I am sweeter than sugar. I am being fostered near Little Rock AR, but I will be happy to take a car ride to my new forever home. I am a playful boy who enjoys the company of dogs my size with the same energy level, but I can also entertain myself playing in the toy box so I would be fine as an only dog. I LOVE to spend time in your lap or curled up next to you on the couch and you won't need an electric blanket on your bed as I promise to keep you warm at night. I am crate trained with no anxiety and potty trained. I do have one guilty pleasure, when in new surroundings where other dogs have been I will mark, but once the new wears off I am fine. I adore receiving attention from people and do well with older, dog respectful children. As any good Boston Terrier, I have a ball obsession and I will play, play, play until you give me the signal the game is over and put the ball away. I do have a visual handicap, but I am handicap-able! I did lose one of my eyes due to my neglect in my previous life and I have one beautiful brown eye which allows me to see shadows which is more than enough to find you and my toys! I am ready to search for my forever home....do you have a toy box full of tennis balls? If so, please fill out my adoption application today.... I will be right her waiting for you!

      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: Little Elm, TX
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier. Lady is a honey of a dog and wants nothing more than to love you and be loved in return. We believe she was abused at some point. She sustained an injury to her pelvis area that was caused by blunt force trauma. The nature of this injury is usually caused from being kicked. If you put your foot out to stop her from going forward or to herd her in another direction, she will snap at your feet. She does this to your hands as well if she perceives them as a threat. This leads us to believe that at some point someone was not kind to this gentle soul. We are working on this with her to teach her that feet and hands won't hurt her. For this reason I do not believe she needs to be in a home with children. She weighs about 14 pounds and needs to gain another pound or two. We did have a golf ball sized mast cell tumor that was malignant from her side removed. Mast cell tumors are quite common in BTs and can come back. Other than the above things she's quite healthy. She's sweet as pie. Loves to play. Wants to be with you and she will talk to you by huffing and puffing until you pay attention to her! Hahah. She is just the kindest little lady. She wants nothing more than to be with you. She gets along with the other 4 dogs in her foster home but she's slow to warm up. With slow introductions she does fine and wants to play. She will require a calm, patient home that will meet her needs. She is crate, leash, and house trained. She loves to go for car rides.
