Tigger was used for breeding and has spent all of his young life living in a cage at a Puppy Mill. Until now. His owner discarded him at a high kill shelter where he was left to die. Fortunately for Tigger, a very nice lady saw him there, behind bars, shaking like a leaf and just knew she had to help him. She was successful at getting him released from the shelter and quickly called BTRET and made arrangements to get him into rescue.
Tigger is a handsome, small 3 year old learning all about life while he's adjusting to the scary newfound freedom he has. He still finds comfort in his crate, but is becoming more confident and happy outside of it everyday. He loves to be petted and share a seat with you. He loves spending time outdoors, exploring and running around in the safety of a fenced backyard.
He's learning all about toys and how to play with them. He would definitely blossom in a quiet home where he can work on his self confidence and explore life. Tigger is: • 3 yrs old • Neutered male • Weighs 14.6 pounds • UTD on all vaccines • HW + • Microchipped • Crate trained • Does well with other calm, well behaved dogs. • Needs a loving, calm, safe home where he can continue to blossom into the confident American Gentleman he was meant to be!
Tigger will make someone a perfect companion and he longs to be loved. He'll do best in an adult home with someone that is home a lot
and has the time and patience to continue his training. We prefer homes with prior Boston Terrier experience and current pet history. Tigger
needs a securely fenced yard.
He would do well with quiet, respectful children.
He is now potty trained, and he is getting along fine with the pack of 4 BT's in his Foster Home.
He's learning to play.
He would do best in a home with another dog(s).
The adoption fee will be $375.00 .

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.
