Facts about Tuukka

  • Breed: Boston Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
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.

About Alabama Boston Terrier Rescue (ABTR)

About Our Rescue Group...

Alabama Boston Terrier Rescue Group ("ABTR") is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the welfare of the Boston Terrier dog breed.

ABTR takes any Boston Terrier regardless of age and/or medical condition, and places the dog in a foster home. Our rescues are placed in the loving homes of volunteers where they are assessed for personality, and then are carefully matched to an adoption home that will provide only the very best.

All Boston Terrier and Boston Terrier mixes are spayed/neutered before placement,(unless age or health issues prevent this at the time of adoption) vaccinated, and all known medical conditions are addressed and treated as appropriate. A lengthy screening and education process is done before an application is approved. An adoption contract is completed, and post-placement follow-up is done. An adoption fee is charged to cover the tremendous veterinary expenses incurred by ABTR. But we can't do it alone. Generous donations from kind people like you sustain us with the financial support necessary to care for these victims of selfishness and neglect. You can help support ABTR by mailing your tax-deductible donation or by using PayPal. We hope that you enjoy our web site and will visit often.
