Scotty Pippin is a neutered 4 year old mixed Boston. He is a dominant fellow but appreciates good leadership and needs consistency. He gets along with most dogs, but will rise to a challenge. He prefers female dogs and mild mannered males. Children over 10 are ok.He’s extremely hardy and healthy and very happy. He has a lot of energy but is not destructive. I believe he must be housebroken since he lived with his former owner in her apartment in an assisted living situation. His owner was a very fearful person, and Scotty wasn’t comfortable being the one in charge, challenging everyone--man and beast.Since being removed from that situation and having a good boss take care of him, he’s become relaxed, happy, and playful. He has many years ahead of him, and he would be a great companion for an active person.Scotty is in North Carolina. For questions about him, please call Cindy at 919-302-6126.
The adoption fee will be $175.00
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.
