Facts about Bugsy Malone KY

  • Breed: Boston Terrier
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9954801

Bugsy is a brindle purebred male neutered boston who is ten years young and weighs about 22 lbs.

Bugsy was surrendered to rescue when his family's schedule became too busy to care for him.  Thankfully, they found BTRET and got him the help he needed. Due to some neglect, Bugsy has a few teeth missing so he prefers dog food and treats that are small bite or soft. Bugsy is also on preventative eye medicine for cataracts.  He doesn't mind it at all and is a very cooperative patient.
Bugsy has a lot of energy and loves to play tug and chase balls with his foster brother and humans.  His favorite thing is to snuggle and cuddle with his people. Bugsy enjoys short walks and naps in your lap (he does snore a little). 
Bugsy can be very protective and sometimes jealous of other dogs, especially BIG ones.  He would probably enjoy being an only dog or a brother to another small dog.
He loves children who are 4 and up and dog savvy but would not do well with toddlers. Bugsy also knows simple commands like 'sit' and 'leave it'.
Bugsy is UTD on all shots.  He is heart worm negative, neutered, and micro-chipped. He is also potty trained and crate trained(if coaxed in with a treat).   He does have small cataracts like many Bostons and has a corneal edema in his left eye. He receives an inexpensive sodium chloride cream three times a day.
Overall, Bugsy is just a bundle of love and snuggles who can't wait to find his forever home! 
DOG FRIENDLY-No large dogs


The adoption fee is $225.00.

If you want to talk about me, please contact my foster family at the

Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, Kentucky Region

Email me at: and a foster momma or daddy will get back with you as soon as possible.

Keep in mind this is the general mailbox for the entire KY Region.

Please use the foster momma or dad's contact information above for questions.

The process always begins with an application which can be found at The Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee website

Note that in most cases, we do not adopt to families with small children, e.g., 'under 6,' as a precaution to the child's safety and the dog's safety. In some cases with larger Boston mixes or other dogs, we do make exceptions. Please ask the foster momma.

We prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to personally drive/fly to get the dog.  The East Coast division (NC/SC/VA/MD/DC) does have special transport capabilties for their kids.   Ask them.

Also, submission of an application and fee does not guarantee adoption of any specific Boston since that particular dog may have applications pending or may not be the right match for you.

About BTRET of Florida

About Our Rescue Group...

Our main goal is to save Boston Terriers but we also accept Boston mixes. We take owner surrenders and pull from shelters (we'll never leave one behind in a shelter to die, even if it's injured or a senior). We also take in abandoned animals and help other rescues who have saved Bostons and can't get them adopted. We treat all of our Bostons like family members and we do what we can to help the senior dogs live their lives out comfortably.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have no physical facility, all our animals are in private foster homes throughout the state of Florida.

Our Adoption Process...

Online application which requires 3 personal references, a vet reference and all animals in the home must be spayed/neutered, UTD on vaccines and on heartworm preventative.

If these steps are all approved, then we do a home visit, have the adopter sign a contract and pay the adoption fee prior to picking up the dog from the foster home.
