Hi, my name is Duke Evers. My Daddy recently had some really big changes in his life and, as a result, he had to make the really difficult decision to have my "brother", Rocky Evers, and I go with the wonderful people from BTRFL. While I miss my original family, the people I am living with now in my foster home are really great. I also get to spend time with their other foster dog and they have a terrific yard to hang outside in. 

I am a laid back, happy-go-lucky kind of guy.  I am content to hang on the couch or in bed with Rocky and my foster family, and I really enjoy lounging outside so a fenced yard would be a plus but not an absolute necessity.  I'm a little on the more mature side having just turned 12 years old but I still have a lot of playfulness in me, especially when playing tug o' war with Rocky.   My vet said that I have maturing cataracts but it doesn't slow me down one bit.  I also need to stay on special food to keep my tummy feeling good.  I ride well in a car and am good on a leash.  If I need to go outside to go potty, I will definitely let you know.

I have spent almost my entire life with Rocky so we really need to stay together in a forever home.  If you are looking for a couple of real sweethearts who just want to be loved, we are your guys!!

Duke just turned 12 years old and weighs about 24 pounds.  Rocky is 9 years old and weighs about 21 pounds.  They are a bonded pair so they will need to be adopted together.


If you are interested in adopting, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application.

Because we have Boston Terriers of all ages, we have a sliding scale for adoption fees generally ranging from $200 to $600 based on the age and health of the dog. Our fees cover vetting costs, shelter fees, fuel for transport, copying and printing of contracts and paperwork, our website presence, food, boarding, behavioral training and additional medical care. While the dog you adopt may not require all of these things, many other dogs in our system do. By adopting from Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida, you are not saving just one life, you are helping to save others as well.

About Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to saving Boston Terriers who are lost, abandoned or surrendered in Florida and the Southeast United States, regardless of age, health or adoptability. Our goal is to nourish each Boston Terrier back to emotional and physical health, providing necessary medical care along with an environment that fosters trust and alleviates fear.

As a rescue organization, we rely on private foster homes spread throughout Florida, Georgia and Tennessee as temporary homes for the dogs we bring into the rescue. We believe this model provides the right environment to get our Bostons ready for their forever homes by receiving the necessary care and training while being part of a loving foster family.

Our foster homes allow our Bostons to play outside and learn how to socialize with humans and other pets. Based on this model, we do not have a permanent facility where prospective adopters/fosters can visit to see our rescues. Instead, our prospective adopters or fosters can view our adoptable Bostons online and fill-out an application. Once approved, our volunteers will work with each applicant to find the best match for their homes.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting a dog is a serious commitment. We strongly encourage anyone thinking about adding a new member to their family to spend some time doing research to be ready for this commitment. We are also happy to work with you to figure out what kind of dog is best for you. If you want to have a dog in your home but aren’t sure you can make the 10-20 year commitment, consider participating in our foster program and other volunteer opportunities.

The application process consist of several steps:

1. Submit Adoption Application. Please answer the application questionnaire as honestly and completely as possible. There is a $20.00 non-waivable and non-refundable application fee to ensure applicants are committed to the adoption process. This fee will not count towards the adoption fee. Our rescue reserves the right to reject any application.
2. Application Review. One our volunteers will review your application and check your personal and veterinary references. If you are renting, we will also need to contact your landlord to ensure your new family member will be approved.
3. Phone Interview. A volunteer will contact you to go over your application.
4. Home Visit. We will then set up a home visit to verify your home is a safe place for a Boston. The home visit is also a time where one of our volunteers can answer any questions that you may have and discuss safety precautions with you.
5. Adoption Agreement. Once you are approved, we will send you an adoption agreement with important terms and conditions that you will need to follow.
6. Finding the Right Match. Finally, we will work with you to find the right Boston for your home.
