He is a big boy and a big ole lap dog. He is happy and very energetic. His leg problem (luxating patella) doesn’t slow him down much but tends to be slow moving in the morning. He eats way too fast elevating his dog dish helps and just giving him his food a small amount at a time or he tends to throw it back up.
He likes cooked carrots as a snack put a regular dog treat in bag and then carrots smell like regular dog treats. He is good about going in his crate anytime Gets overly excited about car trips, make sure you have him under control on leash with his harness on. You may have to sit quietly until he calms down before he gets to “go”. He may try to dig out of fenced yard, or dig in dirt, eat dirt.
He has favorite toys and they mostly SQUEEK…J Gets along with my all my cats now, the cat has to be a calm one when they first get to know each other. Gets along with other dogs and people.
If overly excited he tends to nip, so that has to be watched for. He will do best in an adult home with an experienced Boston Terrier pet-parent that can be the pack leader, preferably someone that has lots of energy and a calm and assertive state of mind because Jake can be stubborn. • UTD on all vaccines • Neutered • Microchipped • HW-

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.
