Tuukka's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Tuukka's Story...
Tuukka (named after the Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask) was found in Alabama. He was underweight at only 14 lbs. and in desperate need of dental care. ABTR brought him home and with much love, a regulated diet and some exceptional veterinary care, he’s now a healthy 18 lbs. He also underwent a thorough dental cleaning and had some teeth extracted. While we’re unsure of his exact age, the vet estimates he’s around 7-8 years old.

Tuukka is a wonderful companion with a sweet temperament. He wants nothing more than to give you kisses, follow you around the house and snuggle with you on the couch. He enjoys taking brief walks in the neighborhood. He’s friendly towards other dogs but so far does not like birds and may chase them if he can. He's never interacted with a cat (that we know of) and it's not clear how he would react.

Tuukka has special needs that a potential adopter needs to be aware of and be committed to treating:
1. He has a thyroid condition that requires pills twice a day to stay regulated;
2. He also has compressed discs in his neck / spine that cause him to occasionally rest / walk on his wrists - something he'll most likely continue to do out of habit for the rest of his life;
3. He’s been undergoing acupuncture and chiropractic treatments for the last three months and has shown a marked improvement. He will need maintenance acupuncture and chiropractic treatments to retain and improve his range of movement.

Tuukka is neutered, micro chipped and heartworm negative. He is on heartworm, and flea and tick preventive. Tuukka is being fostered in Atlanta, Georgia.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tuukka, a Courtland 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 Courtland, or seeking a Boston Terrier dog from a breeder in Courtland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Courtland 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 Courtland 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 Courtland paves the way for another one to be saved.
