Memphis Ginger or 'Gin' is 2 yrs. old and heartworm free and a sweet dog. She was trying to masquerade as a Boston Terrier at MAS to spare her life. She's very sweet, not dog aggressive, curious about cats but has only seen them through a screen door. Did not lunge at them or growl etc. She is only 31 pounds and a survivor of the Memphis Animal Shelter. She's a sweet little 'pocket pittie' girl.
She has not messed up my guest house in any way yet. Goes to the bathroom outside readily and has not gone in the house. She is crate trained. Does not mind being in a kennel (riding in car). Vet helper in Memphis said she never messed up her kennel while over there. They also said she was sweet .
She wants to play with other dogs and is getting more comfortable exploring and looking around.
The adoption fee will be $125.00.

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.
