Conner McCloud is the perfect blend of 'old guy' and classic boston terrier. He enjoys taking naps (under a blanket of course) and with that snoring, car rides, sunbathing, crunchy treats, back scratches, playing with his foster dog siblings, rolling around on his back, laying like a frog with his back legs stretched out, meal time, and an occasional toy.
If you're looking for company, Conner could be the guy for you. He isn't much of a licker, knows SIT, will come when called (unless he's intently focused in a playing match with his foster siblings) and doesn't chew on anything except toys. Conner mostly likes to do his own thing - which is usually just nap.
He's can be cautious with new people, but warms up with patience and treats. He is gaining confidence though, so he may do better in time. We've only heard him barking when playing and when his foster siblings alert at unfamiliar noises. He sleeps in the bed at night, but stays in his crate when his foster parents are at work.
He was surrendered by his elderly owner who could no longer care for him and felt it was best to remove him from the rough housing by children visiting the home. For that reason, he'll do best in a home without young children. He does like doggy friends though, and submits to the more dominant dogs in his foster home. He is 4 years old, about 19 lbs, house-trained, neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative (woohoo!) and ready for a family of his own.
We're unsure how he'd do with other types of animals. Honestly, how can you resist those googly eyes?
The adoption fee will be $350.00
If you have any questions, please email my buddy Amber at the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, email@example.com
NOTE: 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.
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.
