Hello Everyone,

My name is Bossy. I am a shy little girl in the beginning who loves to boss her sister around. Give me a little bit of time and I get all wound up and ready to play. Life is good and fun! My sister Bashful and I were found in a drainage culvert after a rain shower a few weeks ago. We were very tiny, skinny, full of fleas and ticks. My sister and I had no idea how we got there or what we were going to do. All I was doing was hiding and crying. My sister Bashful huddled right next to me. She was shaking because she was scared. Then we heard a loud noise and looked up. There as a kind older couple climbing down into the ditch to get us. I went first and Bashful ran a little farther into the tube because she was afraid. But after a little bit of French fries being offered as a bribe, she came out. I will tell you what, I loved those French fries.

Now when we got to this couple’s home, they bathed us, gave us food, it was so good and a warm bed to sleep in. We balled up together and slept what felt like forever. When we woke up, they took us outside to go potty, and fed us again. There was another lady there this time. She would turn out to be my foster mom with whom we live with now. This lady checked us over, started worming us, gave us shots and left instructions for our rescuing family. We were with them up until just a couple days ago. We now live with the other orphans here at the rescue.

Life is good, plenty of other orphans the same age to play with, lots of food and lots of love. I am not at all shy like I was the night we were picked up. My sister and I come up to our foster mom to be picked up and cuddled. We give lots of kisses. I still need my new family to have patience with me while I adjust to having a family who will love me furever and now want to throw me in a ditch to fend for myself. But every night my foster mom tells us a story about other orphans who have gotten homes back east and how they now hike, go to the ocean, dig in the sand and have a furever family. I want this too. Please submit an application and deposit to start my process of coming home soon.                                                                                                                                                                ~ Bossy~

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.

  • 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.
