Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Sweetie Rose is a 6-7 year old pure-bred Boston Terrier. She is a larger girl and weighs about 30 lbs., is spayed and current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped. She was just given the name Sweetie Rose by the woman who found her without a collar or name. Unfortunately, after much effort, no one claimed Sweetie. She would do best in a household where she is the only pet, but generally does fine with dogs her size or larger. She's a little jealous, and pushy? She'll make a wonderful, loyal companion for someone and deserves a 2nd chance. Sweetie is a gentle, loving girl, loves to give face licks and get tummy rubs. She is housebroken and crate trained. She loves to go on walks and car rides. Since she's a bigger gal she tends to pick on the smaller dogs and needs to be a single child and absolutely no cats. She'd do best with an experienced adopter. If you want to meet me, please call my buddy joe at the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, Phone 865-983-3272 in Maryville, TN. Or email me at: joe The adoption fee will be $275.00. Please use the foster momma or dad's contact information above for questions. The process always begins with an application which can be found at The Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee website Note that in most cases, we do not adopt to families with small children, e.g., "under 6," as a precaution to the child's safety and the dog's safety. In some cases with larger Boston mixes or other dogs, we do make exceptions. Please ask the foster momma. We prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to personally drive/fly to get the dog. The East Coast division (NC/SC/VA/MD/DC) does have special transport capabilties for their kids. Ask them. Also, submission of an application and fee does not guarantee adoption of any specific Boston since that particular dog may have applications pending or may not be the right match for you.

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.

      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Jazzie Renee was found wandering the streets. She was filthy dirty, her nose was cracked, she had a sunburn and a horrible Cherry Eye. This gal has had several litters of puppies and was most likely the property of a Back Yard Breeder. We had her evaluated, spayed (she had Pyometra) and got her Cherry Eye repaired. It appears that Jazzie never lived inside as she doesn't have house manners, is not potty trained and is simply like a "Bull in a China Closet" right now, but is learning quickly. Her Foster Mommy will continue to work with her on her manners, potty training and walking on a leash. About Jazzie: • Age: 3 yrs old • Weight: 27.5 lbs • Female • Spayed • Color: Black & White • UTD on all vaccines • HW- • Microchipped • Crate trained: working on that/cries loudly • Potty trained: working on that • Walking on a leash: working on that • People = OK • Children = OK • DOGS = must be supervised very closely • CATS = UNKNOWN • At this time she would be best suited as an only dog. She is a beautiful girl and will be a fine addition to someone's home. She has a beautiful coat and is improving on getting along with other dogs. When she likes one, they play and rough house like BT's do. Still working on the potty training and walking on a leash properly. She is crate trained. She loves to be with her people and follows "me" everywhere. She is now 25#'s. She saw a squirrel today. If she was loose she would've chased it for sure! Once she's got some training under her belt, she may be able to be trusted with other dogs. She does love to be near her people at all times, is loving and gentle when she is content. This gal is currently a work in progress. The adoption fee will be $425.00 . If you want to know more about me, please email my buddy Christine at the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, Florida Division at: christyg59@hotmail.com WE DO NOT HAVE A SHELTER FACILITY WHERE APPLICANTS CAN MEET OUR BT's PRIOR TO INITIATING THE ADOPTION PROCESS.

    • Bo-Dach Dog For Adoption in Maryville, TN, USA

      Dexter Holla...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Bo-Dach
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Only a year and a half old, Dexter has endured quite the rough ride for one dude. His first owners were in a bad situation and were forced to give him up for his safety. We knew the home was abusive, and though Dexter has a big puppy smile, he also cowers at times and intimidates easily. Dexter is extra long because he’s not just a boston terrier, he’s got some dachshund sprinkled in there too! His handsome brindle stripes really add to his fun loving character. And his longer nose eliminates the usual boston snoring. When Dexter joined us, he was super skinny, but with treats and attention, he grew to a healthy weight of 22 pounds. Dexter had a very unfortunate event occur his first day in his foster parents’ home. You’d think after all the stress this little guy had experienced, he’d be allotted time for happiness and learning. Instead, the first evening Dexter spent in his safe puppy cage, he nearly hung himself with his collar on the door. Dexter freed himself from suffocation but his right eye wasn’t so lucky. He suffered proptosis from the pressure around his neck. That evening, his foster parents had the help of an ophthalmology-emergency-veterinarian to make a decision about keeping Dexter’s eye. He had a big surgery to reduce his eye back into his head with retention sutures to allow scar tissue to form around the globe. Dexter became a cone-dog for over a month but didn’t let it get him down. He suffered a melting corneal ulcer to that same eye; a negative outcome from swelling against the sutured eyelid. He had many vet appointments and a variety of eye drops that his foster parents had to apply every two hours. Even his own plasma was used in the preservation of this eye! You can imagine why the guy got so many treats. And through all of that, he learned to trust humans even more. He developed a very fun personality as he started feeling well. Dexter will likely need drops in that eye to help with moisture moving forward in life. Other than that, he’s a perfect 1.5year old with good vision in both eyes! Dexter is fun-loving and energetic. He loves to cuddle in the evenings or especially early in the morning. He likes to play with toys and run around with his foster siblings. He’s never met a dog he didn’t like. Now that the cone is gone, other dogs are no longer intimidated by Dexter. Dexter can be a shadow to his foster mom but also doesn’t mind to pull up a good antler and gnaw away when she’s busy. His timid ways are practically gone and its clear he seeks to please his foster parents. With all the health problems, Dexter’s still working on obedience commands. He knows his name well and perks up when he hears you talk about him. He loves to come when he’s called, or if he hears the word “treat”. Dexter is a total blast and would make a great companion to another fur sibling but also could be an only dog. He’d want to go for a lot of walks and would love a yard of his own. Dexter loves to fetch and be chased. He doesn’t always give the ball back though! He loves the destruction process of plush toys and carrying around different femur bones. Sometimes he empties the toy bin of his favorite bones and stacks them neatly on the couch; who wouldn’t love a neat guy? Dexter was the sweetest most pitiful boy we could imagine when he didn’t feel good. Seeing him play and enjoy everything has been such a pleasure. He’s more entertaining than television. Maybe he’ll be the perfect-two-eyed-miracle-story for your life! Dexter would do well in a home with or without another fur friend. He’s been exposed to several toddlers but given his history, may be unpredictable with a child who’s not dog savvy. Dexter Holland is UTD, heart worm negative, neutered, & micro-chipped. Crate Trained: yes Potty Trained: yes Dog Friendly: yes Cat friendly: not sure Kid Friendly: yes, but caution advised related to abused past. The adoption fee is $200.00.

      rescue
      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Butler Baloo is an older (vet estimates 9-10 yrs old) that's weighs around 30-pounds. He was turned in to the shelter by his owner that just didn't want him anymore. He spent a week alone, scared and confused until we were called to pull him from doggy jail. But, that's all behind him now and he'll never be homeless again. Butler is current on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped. He has impeccable house manners with regular outdoor potty times. Butler is very quiet and well behaved, but we've noticed some minor food bowl guarding with his larger foster siblings. It's very possible a learned behavior from his original home, but we're working on it. He doesn't engage or seek out the other dogs to play with in his foster home, so he'll be just fine as the only dog. Butler totally ignores cats and really enjoys being near his people. He's a low-energy guy that's looking for a quiet home & someone to hang out with and love. The adoption fee for Butler will be $225.00 Butler Baloo is being fostered near Knoxville, TN so please be prepared to meet and adopt him there as we don't ship our kids. Prior Boston Terrier experience is a must and current pet history preferred. Because he may some minor hearing loss, no homes with large dogs or children under 12-years old.

      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Kenji Franklin is an Owner Surrender; he was born deaf and knowingly adopted that way. He also does not see well enough to chase a ball; he sees mostly shadows. His owners decided to move onto a house boat...that didn't work well as Kenji couldn't navigate the dock, hated the constant movement of the boat and simply became extremely unhappy. The fact that he's blind and his vision is limited, is not an issue as he navigates absolutely fine. He is very attentive and smart. He is a sweet older guy (very little gray) and is in great shape! He ❤'s walks, belly rubs and gives the softest, gentle kisses ever. When he sees I've got his leash/harness, he gets very excited, twirls in circles and does a dance...so stinking cute!! About Kenji: • 11 yrs old • Weighs 24.6 LBS • Special Needs (Deaf & Limited vision) • Male • Neutered • UTD on all vaccines • HW- • Microchipped • Potty/Crate trained • Walks well on a leash • Travels well • Happy go Lucky • People = OK • Kids = OK, respectful/gentle ones • Dogs = OK with supervision due to his vision • Cats = Unknown - NOT RECOMMENDED due to his vision • Not destructive • Quiet, "Gentle Ben" type of companion • Would love a fenced backyard!

      rescue
      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Mr Harold was a stray, roaming the streets of Coco FL. A shelter there, contacted us to see if we might take him in. We did just as soon as we had a Foster Home that could take him. Harold was skin and bones when we got him. He was most likely used for breeding and was dumped since he was older, blind in one eye, had a huge mast cell tumor between his good eye and ear on the right side of his face. He was also not neutered! Oftentimes breeders dump their "rock stars" once they're no longer of value to them. Breeders generally do not take the best of care of these guys; they are simply a source of income. Harold had the necessary surgery to remove the tumor, has been neutered and since he's on a quality diet, he has put on some weight and now looks amazing! He has long legs and a beautiful coat with brindle in it. Harold gets along well with other dogs, all people and would most likely do well with respectful children. He has a wonderful disposition, is potty/crate trained, loves to go bye bye, walks well on a leash, is a snuggler and gives very gentle kisses. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word. All Mr Harold really needs is a safe, comfy place to rest his his head and get spoiled rotten for the rest of his life! He will thank you by providing you with the very best companionship imaginable. Seniors are past all the puppy behaviors and simply want your love and to give love. ❤️ About Mr Harold: Age: Approximately 12 yrs old Color: Black, white & brindle Weight: Approximately 27 lbs Medical: UTD on all vaccines, HW-, Neutered and Microchipped House Manners: Crate & potty trained Disposition: Gentle, polite & patient Dogs: YES People: YES Children: Respectful children will most likely be fine Cats: Unknown The adoption fee will be $225.00 .

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). The name Handsome certainly fits this 3-year-old boy. He is really gorgeous in person. The way he holdshimself & his whole body structure is something to behold. He's a powerful dog, a pit bull mix. When the photos were taken, he weighed 48 lb. but we have tried to fatten him up a little, so he's probably 50+ by now. We pulled Handsome out of a shelter because he was to be killed that night. He's in a boarding facility in SC since we did not have a foster home that could take him. Handsome has the best personality, so sweet & affectionate. He has been with an older child (9) and did awesome. At the vet, anything they did to him was absolutely fine. Sweet, sweet boy. We have been trying to judge whether he is good with other dogs, but that's hard to do in a boarding or even veterinarian office environment. So, it would be best if he's the only pet. Handsome is heart worm positive and is on "slow-kill" treatment that just requires giving him 1 Heartworm pill (ordinary Heartgard) a month which is supplied by the rescue. In our experience, dogs on slow-kill, will become heart worm negative in 12-15 months. He also had a mast cell tumor (cancerous) on his side, but it was removed with good, clear margins and was low-grade on the pathology report which is great news. All medical records will come with him, of course. He has been neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. For more information on Handsome Hofstetter, please call his buddy, Kelli, at 803-646-2593. His adoption fee is $225.00 Transportation north is available too at a very reasonable rate. Please use the foster momma or dad's contact information above for questions.

      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Frankie is a black and white, male Boston Terrier approximately 6-8 years old and should be about 20-21 pounds once he gets back up to optimal weight. Frankie is mostly blind from cataracts though he gets around pretty well and quickly learned the layout in his foster home. He is very sweet and cuddly with humans but we are working on his social skills with other dogs. He loves to be close to a person when he can and loves to be in your lap (he’s also a great kisser!). Frankie is smart, learns quickly, and is eager to please—he’s already learned his name and “here” and how to “sit” and is rapidly improving with “wait” and “leave it” commands. He has been really good about accepting treatments like eye and ear drops, baths, and nail clipping. He doesn’t seem to mind noises such as a vacuum cleaner or thunder and he doesn’t mind wearing clothes. Frankie so far hasn’t shown any interest in toys (not even the squeaky ones) but maybe we just haven’t found his favorite yet. He likes to go for walks and we are trying to improve his leash manners (he does pull when he smells or hears something interesting). Like most Bostons, he snores when he sleeps, but not too loud…and he would probably love to sleep in the people bed if he could . Frankie is UTD, heart worm negative, neutered, & micro-chipped. Crate Trained: Frankie now does really well in his crate and is fully potty trained. Potty Trained: YES ( with regular trips outside) Dog Friendly: NO –does not know how to politely interact with other dogs. May get used to another dog with time. Cat friendly: Maybe. , Doing better about not chasing the cats! Kid Friendly: UNKNOWN but probably OK with respectful kids The adoption fee is $225.00.

      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Lucky is an approximately 10 year old purebred Boston boy, weighing only 16lbs, who just wants someone to love him. He was surrendered to the rescue after his lifelong owner moved away and a family member who had no time for him was left with him. He is the sweetest boy, house trained, sleeps most of the day but also enjoys playing with other pups, and eats up any affection he is given. He has a stage 4 heart murmur, although it does not require any medications at this time and doesn't seem to affect him at all as he shows no outward symptoms of it. He has cataracts, which bother him a bit, but mostly only on un-lit staircases. He also has a bit of dry skin, which can be cleared up with the appropriate shampoo. Overall, he is the sweetest little guy I think we've ever fostered and such a great dog! Great with kids and other animals. He would make anyone a great and loyal companion! DOG FRIENDLY-YES CAT FRIENDLY-YES HOUSEBROKEN-YES CRATE TRAINED-YES KID FRIENDLY- Older, dog savvy children The adoption fee is $225.00. If you want to talk about me, please contact my foster family at the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, Kentucky Region Email me at: BTRETky@gmail.com and a foster momma or daddy will get back with you as soon as possible. Keep in mind this is the general mailbox for the entire KY Region. Please use the foster momma or dad's contact information above for questions. The process always begins with an application which can be found at The Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee website Note that in most cases, we do not adopt to families with small children, e.g., "under 6," as a precaution to the child's safety and the dog's safety. In some cases with larger Boston mixes or other dogs, we do make exceptions. Please ask the foster momma. We prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to personally drive/fly to get the dog. The East Coast division (NC/SC/VA/MD/DC) does have special transport capabilties for their kids. Ask them. Also, submission of an application and fee does not guarantee adoption of any specific Boston since that particular dog may have applications pending or may not be the right match for you.

      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Happy Gilmore is a purebred Boston Terrier. He is about 10 years old that weighs around 25 pounds. Happy has the sweetest personality. He is a kisser whenever you are within reaching distance of his tongue. I really can’t say enough good things about him. He is an absolute sweetheart. Whoever adopts him will get a great dog. Happy has some separation issues. He doesn’t like to be by himself, wherever I am, he is, too. He gets anxious when he is in a new situation. Once he gets accustomed to his new situation, he settles down. While adjusting to the change, he cries, which is a high pitched bark. We feel that part of the reason for this is that he has vision issues. The vet believes he has his vision but not complete vision. I believe he has vision but to what degree not sure. I do know he can not see black. He can not see the black crate and will run into it. I have a black front door and he has run into it multiple times. Happy has been to a doggy eye specialist. He is officially diagnosed with Corneal Endothelial Degeneration Dystophy (edema) in both eyes. He has a salve that will keep it from getting worse. The salve is applied to both eyes twice a day. He doesn’t mind it too much since he gets a treat afterwards. The salve is to help reduce the surface edema. He has played with both of my Bostons and grand dog. He has gotten along with them. He does not snore. He likes to chew on bones, hard toy, and stuffed animals. He does really good on a leash and likes riding in the car. Happy eats Rachel Ray Nutrish right now. Along with Rachel Ray wet food or occasional Mighty Dog. He likes Milk Bone mini bones. He likes most everything, he isn’t a picky eater by any means. He is house broken. He hasn’t had any accidents. Happy has had a full vetting. His shots are up to date. He was neutered and micro-chipped. He was heartworm tested as well. He does not care for the crate. It makes him upset and he cries. He sleeps in his bed next to our bed. If I get up at any time, he gets up, too. Otherwise he doesn’t move from his bed. He has not been exposed to cats with me. He was very acceptable of my three grandchildren under the age of 6. Even jumped on the couch to sit with the 6 year old. The adoption fee is $225.00.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Memphis Ginger or "Gin" is 2 yrs. old and heartworm free and a sweet dog. She was trying to masquerade as a Boston Terrier at MAS to spare her life. She's very sweet, not dog aggressive, curious about cats but has only seen them through a screen door. Did not lunge at them or growl etc. She is only 31 pounds and a survivor of the Memphis Animal Shelter. She's a sweet little "pocket pittie" girl. She has not messed up my guest house in any way yet. Goes to the bathroom outside readily and has not gone in the house. She is crate trained. Does not mind being in a kennel (riding in car). Vet helper in Memphis said she never messed up her kennel while over there. They also said she was sweet . She wants to play with other dogs and is getting more comfortable exploring and looking around. The adoption fee will be $125.00.
