Mr Harold was a stray, roaming the streets of Coco FL. A shelter there, contacted us to see if we might take him in. We did just as soon as we had a Foster Home that could take him. Harold was skin and bones when we got him. He was most likely used for breeding and was dumped since he was older, blind in one eye, had a huge mast cell tumor between his good eye and ear on the right side of his face. He was also not neutered!
Oftentimes breeders dump their 'rock stars' once they're no longer of value to them. Breeders generally do not take the best of care of these guys; they are simply a source of income. Harold had the necessary surgery to remove the tumor, has been neutered and since he's on a quality diet, he has put on some weight and now looks amazing! He has long legs and a beautiful coat with brindle in it.
Harold gets along well with other dogs, all people and would most likely do well with respectful children. He has a wonderful disposition, is potty/crate trained, loves to go bye bye, walks well on a leash, is a snuggler and gives very gentle kisses. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word.
All Mr Harold really needs is a safe, comfy place to rest his his head and get spoiled rotten for the rest of his life! He will thank you by providing you with the very best companionship imaginable. Seniors are past all the puppy behaviors and simply want your love and to give love. â¤ï¸

If you want to know more about me, please email my buddy Christine at the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, Florida Division at: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
