Hi there. I'm Rocco Elder. I am 14 years young and in great health. My Foster Mommy says that I am really well behaved. I don't even jump on the furniture or beg for food. I am waiting desperately to find my permanent home so that I don't have to keep moving around. Who wants to bring me home and give me the safety and security that I crave?
Rocco Elder is 14 years old and weighs 29 pounds.
Some of the dogs listed may not be cleared for adoption yet and many may be adopted prior to when you are approved and are next in line to work with the Adoption Coordinator. Please do not despair. We have new dogs coming into our Rescue all the time regardless of whether you see them posted here or not. If you are willing to be patient or if you are willing to adopt one of our older dogs, we suggest that you apply as soon as possible. The Adoption Coordinator works with the older applications first to find good matches with the dogs we have available at that time. Waiting to apply until you see a dog posted that you like usually ends with that dog being adopted by someone who submitted an application before you.
If you are interested in adopting, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application. http://bostonrescueflorida.org/available-for-adoption/adoption-process/
Because we have Boston Terriers of all ages, we have a sliding scale for adoption fees generally ranging from $300 to $600 based on the age and health of the dog.
In general the fees are:
$600 - 9 wks to 23 months
$550 - 2 yrs to 3 yrs
$475 - 4 yrs to 5 yrs
$400 - 6 yrs to 7 yrs
$300 - 8 yrs to 9 yrs
For dogs 10 yrs old and older, we just request a donation.
Our fees cover vetting costs, shelter fees, fuel for transport while in the rescue, copying and printing of contracts and paperwork, our website presence, food, boarding, behavioral training and additional medical care. While the dog you adopt may not require all of these things, many other dogs in our system do. By adopting from Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida, you are not saving just one life, you are helping to save others as well.
