Poodah Bear 'Von Miller' was rescued from a high kill shelter on Super Bowl Sunday.
His owner surrendered him after he bit a child. The child had been pulling at Poodah's ears. He has been diagnosed/treated for an ear infection and kennel cough and has showed zero signs of aggression since.
He is 8 yrs old, weighs 21#'s, is neutered, HW-, Microchipped, UTD on all vaccines, is calm, cuddly, crate trained, housebroken and loves to get under the covers and snuggle! He also lives to go bye bye and enjoys daily walks.
Poodah Bear is quite the Southern Gentleman and is in need of a fur-ever home and a special someone to share his love with!
He is currently living with several Boston's and is loving life!
• Poodah Bear will do best with an individual or couple that are quiet and relaxed. He is easily excited if there is screaming/yelling/arguing going on, so this must be avoided at all cost.
While he does love the water and swimming, he is highly susceptible to ear infection(s) afterwards, so it is recommended that he be kept out of the pool, lake, ocean, etc.
His adoption fee is $275.
Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee (BTRET), Florida Division does not have a shelter or facility. The dogs are in private foster homes throughout the state of Florida.
If you want additional information on me, please send an e-mail to email@example.com and someone will get back with you shortly.
The process always begins with an application which can be found at www.bostonterriertn.org. 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.
Additional Info. for Heartworm Positive Dogs:
BTR of East TN has embraced the 'slow kill' Heartworm treatment method
for all HW+ dogs because it's much easier on the dog although it can take a little longer in
some cases. You need to make sure your vet will continue to provide you with Heartgard and support this treatment before adoption. You should also know that post adoption should you opt to use Immiticide you do so at your own risk and could endanger the life of your dog. We are available to discuss why.
Bonus for adopters - free 30-day health insurance with each adoption:
The 30-day coverage plan ensures the pets you adopt out are covered for accidents and illnesses. This plan provides $1,000 aggregate/ $500 per-incident limit of accident and illness protection. It reimburses 100% of vet bills after a $50 per-incident deductible. Adopters have the option to extend or upgrade their coverage at the time of activation. There is no cost to the adopter for this 30-day protection.
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.
