Poppy's Story...
Poppy is a 5.5 year old female Boston Terrier. Poppy has plenty of Boston enthusiasm and will dance and hop when you come home but she is not interested in playing with other dogs or kids. She is happy to take a long walk (she is still learning to walk on a leash and making great progress), chew on a bully stick and snuggle up to her human for a netflix binge. Because Poppy dislikes being handled and held and can be frightened by loud noises or unpredictable movement we suggest she be placed in a quiet adult only household or a home with older dog savvy children.

Poppy is indifferent about her foster siblings and could be placed in a home with a dog or without but potential adopters should not be in search of a playmate for their other animals. Poppy has not barked once despite her noisy foster siblings. She does well in her crate, but obviously has had some bad experiences with being crated and will sometimes whimper or yell upon being let out of her crate. We are trying to change this association but she should not be placed in a home where she will spend hours in a crate each day.

She is also nearly completely potty trained. She is not alerting us when she needs to go, but will hold it until she is let out with the other dogs. Poppy is very happy to be in loving home and wants to always be on the humans now. Someone who could continue to set gentle, firm boundaries as she learns how to be a companion would be best for her.

Come meet Poppy – she is looking for her forever home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Poppy, a San Francisco Boston Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boston Terrier for sale in San Francisco, or seeking a Boston Terrier dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Francisco already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Francisco breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boston Terrier breeders who help with Boston Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Francisco paves the way for another one to be saved.
