Introducing Miss Lola. She is with the Boston Terrier Rescue of East TN. http://www.bostonterriertn.org/. This beautiful little mix is a big dog attitude in a small dog package!! She is currently in a foster home with 5 German Shepherds and thinks nothing of it. She has fit right into the pack and our routine from Day 1 here! VERY smart little girl. She catches on to things very easily. She does need a bit of leash and manners training which we are working on!
Megaesophagus does not slow her down one bit! She is a normal dog in all respects, except that she eats pureed food from a bowl that is elevated on a stepstool!
Here is a link to her photo album on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/susan.shank.9/media_set?set=a.10153269718424127.1073741835.628379126&type=3

Adoption only in the Washington DC metro area please
The adoption fee will be $225.00.
If you want to meet me, please call my buddy Sue at the
Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, in Nokesville, VA .
Or email me at: Sue
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.
