Or email me at: Sue that's SUESHANK@aol.com 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.

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.

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 (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!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      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.
