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. ***Update 2.17.17*** VET HOLD**ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS** (Bonded with Nora and must be adopted together.) 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.

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!

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 .

    • Boston Terrier-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Little Elm, TX

      Darwin

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Boston Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Little Elm, TX
      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.

      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Little Elm, TX
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier / English Bulldog. *Adoption Pending* ***Vet Hold*** Update 1.24.17 It's a hard cone life for me.... ❤️Leo Leo's surgery went well. The vet was able to remove the very large cyst on his thigh and the Mast Cell Tumor on his shoulder. This tumor grew into his rib muscle so it made it more complicated to remove. We are hoping the vet was able to get it all. We will know more in about a week when we get the pathology back. The vet said she had to go back in and do some extra removal trying to get it all without damaging his muscle. This can be very difficult to get it all when it's attached to muscle. We have our paws crossed hoping that it's a low grade and we will do our part in providing him with the biologically appropriate nutrition that won't feed cancer cells. Please keep Leo in your thoughts and prayers! ******************************************************************** Update 1.17.17 Leo: He is 7 years old and at a great weight. He has a mast cell tumor on his shoulder and a large cyst on the inside of his thigh that will be removed on January 24th. He is heartworm negative! Today's bill for Leo was $121.00. 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 Leo came to us from a shelter in East Texas. His previous family could no longer care for him. Leo is neutered, chipped, current on vaccinations and heartworm negative! Leo is good with other pets and all people. He is crate trained, he likes to sleep in his crate as long as he has his special blanket. Leo has been given a lot of table scraps...he currently weighs in at 50 lbs! He is going on Biggest Loser: Boston Terrier Edition in his foster home and then he will be ready for adoption!
