Tootsie, at just 19 lbs, and 8-9 years old is the little Queen at her Foster Mommy's house! She was found in a very rural area, most likely dropped off as the person that found her contacted all of the shelters in the area, posted pictures/information at local stores and on social media for a solid month without a single lead.
After trying every way possible to connect Tootsie with her family, BTRET was contacted for help. We took this sweet lady in and are now looking to place her in a forever home with a family of her very own.
Tootsie likes to be held/lie in your lap, she's playful, fearless, loves to snuggle, is crate/potty trained and gets along with children, cats and dogs of all sizes.
She also loves to go 'bye bye' and makes a perfect companion, always wanting to be near her people. Her eyes are not sparkly as she has obviously had injury in the past. It must not have been treated. It does not stop her a bit, she can see just fine and is quick to catch a lizard!

The adoption fee will be $200.00 .
If you want to know more about me, please email my buddy Christine at the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, Florida Division at: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
