Dudley is a super sweet & snuggle bunny Boston. Loves to sit in your lap and be held like a baby.  He has been in a foster home with other dogs and gets along nicely.  He is a typical Boston boy that likes to play, eat and snuggle.  Dudley loves attention,  playing to work off some of his energy & then settles down for a good nap.  He is not aggressive with people or other dogs.  Dudley is still working on his hiking, but he is a smart boy and if given an opportunity to go outside first thing in the morning   periodically throughout the day and right before bed time he will learn in short order. He was born with a defected right eye so is blind in that eye, but this does not cause him any problems and the vision in his left eye is just fine.  He also has two permanent scars on his right neck/shoulder area.  Dudley originally went to rescue from a shelter in north Alabama 4 years ago and sat in that rescue for 4 years waiting for an adopter.  No one wanted him because of his eye.  This is a real shame because he is a wonderful and loving little Boston that just needs a home of his own where someone will love him and give him the training he needs to be the best he can be!

Dudley is neutered, up to date on all vaccines, heart worm negative and on preventative.  Dudley is very healthy and is has had full blood work and a dental which FOHA had done since we took Dudley into FOHA.

Dudley is a very sweet & gentle Boston.  He is crate trained and is working on his hiking with the use of a belly band - he is doing well.  He will scratch on the door to be let out.  He is good with our old female Boston.  He rarely barks.  He is something of an escape artist and since he is small can fit through slats of certain fences and will try to run out the door so great caution needs to be taken to insure he does not get out and get lost or killed.  He does need some training to keep him safe.  He walks on a leash pretty well and loves to go in the car.

Dudley should be fine with respectful kids that are used to being around a dog.  He seems to love everyone!  He seems to want to chase the neighborhood cat so perhaps a no cat cat is best.

About Friends of Homeless Animals, Inc.(FOHA)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a volunteer group that are helping primarily Boston Terriers, Boston mixes and other small dogs when resources permit. We rescue locally and all around the country - if our need help is needed.
  • We do not have a shelter so there are no set visiting hours or place to visit. We foster all the dogs in foster homes in various locations.

    We need foster parents!

    We cannot save any dogs without volunteers to help foster our animals. Please help us to help them - become a foster parent.

    Donations are gladly accepted and appreciated.
    If you cannot adopt a dog, foster a dog or donate your time, we have made it easy for you to make a donation online.
    Donations can be made securely by Paypal:

  • Come Meet Our Pets...

    We do NOT have a shelter. All our dogs are fostered in individual homes. Meetings are by appointment only after you have completed our online application. THANKS!

    Our Adoption Process...

    Our dogs listed on Adopt a Pet all have initials following the name of the dog. The initials show the State: RI, CT, NJ, NY, etc. where these dogs are being fostered.
    If you see a dog with initials after the name of the dog, these are dogs that are not in our LOCAL area but transport will be arranged for those dogs. For example: W, CF, M, RH, etc.

    Please remember that we are ALL volunteers & will respond to you as quickly as we can in all communications. We are not paid volunteers and try to keep the phones and emails manned but sometimes there may be a lapse in time. We appreciate your patience.


    Step 1 - Complete an online application -

    Step 2 - Please reserve your dog by making a $200 deposit on Paypal -

    E-mail address to use for deposit (which is applied toward total donation) is:

    You can meet any of our local dogs with JUST an online application and NO deposit, but must be approved, etc. 1st in order to take your dog home.

    Step 3 - Let your references know that a volunteer will be contacting them.

    Step 4 - Once your references are contacted, a volunteer will be in touch to arrange your home visit.

    Step 5 - Once you have been approved, pick up information, balance due, and adoption contract will be e-mailed to you.

    Please remember our dogs generally all have a pull fee from a shelter, LOTS of vet costs for initial shots and tests, spay or neuter, and then transport costs to bring the dogs to our area. This is just the beginning of the costs for a rescue. We then depend on our volunteers to buy the dog food, we pay for any additional vetting costs and grooming for the dog. There are many costs and we depend on our adoption donations to HELP pay our costs. We are a non-profit charity 501(c)3 and depend on donations for rescuing our dogs. Most times, the adoption fee does not cover the costs associated with that dogs rescue costs.

    Donations are listed on each dog's description.

    References listed on your application will be checked prior to any meetings with a dog. We do require a HOME VISIT PRIOR to any adoption.

    Some dogs are local, but many are not - they are in various locations so it will not be possible to meet some of them before you adopt.

    We only will transport the dogs if you make a firm commitment and a $200 DEPOSIT as the paid transport is costly & difficult to arrange & we do not have enough foster homes.

    Deposit Donations can be made by Paypal:
