  • Sex: Male
Hello… Moon Pie here! If you are looking for a hiking or jogging partner, someone who will protect you from stuffed animals and a guy who is up for adventure… well, I’m the dog you are looking for! I am an excellent travel companion and will usually fall asleep on car rides. I love to hike, wade in creeks, and yes, yes, you can bribe me with ice cream. I get along with my foster sisters, even though they like to boss me around. I am extremely tall and tower over my foster siblings. I am an excellent guard dog and have a bark that some have said is a cross between a seal and a coonhound. An ideal home for me would be one with other low-key dogs. I am a socially awkward guy and take my cues from my four-legged siblings, and being all alone makes me anxious. I am not much of a cuddler, but I would like to lie beside you at the end of the day. I know basic commands and can shake my paw with your house guests. I am house-trained, leash-trained and the first to get myself into bed when its bedtime. I bark (sometimes incessantly) when I hear unfamiliar noises or when I have visual stimulation, (like when people are walking by) so I would probably be best suited for quiet, country living rather than a busy city environment.

Other information about Moon Pie:
1) He's approximately 8 years old, 30 pounds, neutered. Up to date on his shots, testing
heartworm negative and on preventive.
2) Around Other Dogs: Gets along with other dogs/not aggressive; he doesn’t really interact with
them, but seems to need to be in their vicinity.
* Cats: N/A
3) Around People: Female/Male – he is fine with both.
* Children: would probably not deal well with the noises of a home with children.
* He is fine being handled, i.e. collar, harness, and leash.
4) Habits:
* Petting/Handling: He doesn’t mind being petted. He doesn’t actively seek out affection, but
will let you pet him, especially when he is lying beside you.
* Outside: Likes to explore the fenced backyard. Would definitely need to be on leash if outside
of a fenced area.
* Access to the house: He has full reign of the house.
* Sleeping: He is allowed to sleep in the bedroom on one of the dog beds at night. He will
occasionally jump up on the bed and sleep, too. He sleeps through the night as long as he is
taken outside before bedtime.
5) Feeding:
* He is currently fed Orijen Regional Red 1 cup, twice a day
* He is not food aggressive, but will stand beside the other dogs who are slow eaters and
sometimes needs to be told where his boundaries are

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.
