Murphy's Story...
The vets say I am around 18 months of age. I was found on the university grounds and no one claimed me- this is the time of year so many kids dump dogs that they have had over the school year and assume someone will find them and give them a good home. Or we found out he is heartworm positive and they did not want to pay for the treatment like we are!! We have neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, flea product applied and will do his heartworm treatment next week. The rescue pays the microchip enrollment fee. He comes with a lupine collar and leash, toys, food and all medical records. If interested email Karen at for an application. He is a beautiful Boston Terrier-he weighs 24 pounds and was in excellent condition when we found him. His adoption fee is $ 200.00. Our costs in him will be close to $500.00 but we all love this dog and felt he was worth the extra cost. He is outgoing and seems to love everyone he meets. He will go to the groomer next week. After consulting with vets we have decided to go with the slow Heartgard treament so we will be sending the new owners with a years supply of Heartgard for his treatment- this way he will have no issues with the treatment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Paris Boston Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boston Terrier for sale in Paris, or seeking a Boston Terrier dog from a breeder in Paris.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Paris already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Paris breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boston Terrier breeders who help with Boston Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Paris paves the way for another one to be saved.
