***** SPECIAL NEEDS *****

Often times we get a dog that is in dire need of extra love and care. This was Lulu’s case. Sweet, loving Lulu arrived in July 2015 with severe skin problems and an eye on the verge of rupturing (see before photos). Our mission was to get her immediate medical assistance and begin the healing process. Sadly, it was necessary to remove her eye as it was very painful for Lulu and beyond saving. Next, her skin problems were addressed. No simple task as she often required medicated baths, special foods and medications. She has both environmental and food allergies which were, at first, tricky to diagnose. But fast forward to April 2016 and you will find a much happier and healthier little girl thanks to the immense effort given by her foster mama (see today’s photos). And now Lulu is ready for a special home who will continue to give her the special care she deserves.

Age: 11 years old

Weight: 25 pounds

Health: Severe allergies (environmental, food, etc.). Requires ongoing medication, special diets and baths

Demeanor: Affectionate, sweet, quiet/mellow, playful, couch potato, loner, loyal

Likes: People (prefers woman initially), children (after she gets to know them), dogs (once she gets to know them), sitting in laps, going for car rides, burrowing under blankets, treats (grain-free)

Dislikes: Strangers and being picked up

Manners: Housebroken, crate and leash trained, knows verbal commands

Fenced Yard Required: No, as long as she is on leash

About Boston Terrier Rescue of North Carolina

About Our Rescue Group...

BTRNC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) all volunteer North Carolina based animal rescue organization. Since 2003, BTRNC has rescued, rehabilitated, and provided adoption for Boston Terriers in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia.

BTRNC removes Boston Terriers from abuse/neglect situations, owner surrenders, animal shelters, other animal welfare organizations, or otherwise without an owner. BTRNC then places rescued Boston Terriers in qualified foster homes and provides all necessary medical treatment, including heatworm testing and treatment and vaccinations.

BTRNC works diligently to find suitable homes for all of its dogs available for adoption.

BTRNC supports the control of pet overpopulation through the spaying/ neutering of rescued Boston Terriers prior to their placement with adoptive families.

BTRNC solicits and receives donations from the general public and its members.

All of our dogs are fostered in private homes and are not available for viewing. BTRNC occasionally participates in adoption and other events where some of its dogs are present.
