Pete Townsend is a big, handsome, hunk that's around 9 years old and weighs about 30 pounds right now (he's currently on a diet). He was surrendered back to us because he was 'too gassy'. We have not found that not to be true at all. Perhaps it was the brand of dog food they were feeding, as some are mostly fillers and corn-by-products, which cause tummy troubles in Bostons.
Pete came to us originally over a year ago after being dumped by his family because they didn't have time for him anymore. Pete is a sweet guy, house trained with regular trips outside, leash/crate trained and good with most other dogs that are smaller than himself (his previous home had a small dog). He has a bit of a slight limp in his right leg, but it doesn't affect his mobility and he is a tad cross eyed too. I think this just adds to his special charm. He loves to be with his human, is super quiet and is a very obedient fellow. He's now current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, microchipped & on flea/tick/heartworm preventative. He'll do best with a pet parent that has a fenced yard and children over 8 years old. No large dogs please.

NOTE: 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.
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.
