Facts about Frankie Fallon KY

  • Breed: Boston Terrier
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10721566
Frankie is a black and white, male Boston Terrier approximately 6-8 years old and should be about 20-21 pounds once he gets back up to optimal weight.
 
Frankie is mostly blind from cataracts though he gets around pretty well and quickly learned the layout in his foster home.
 
He is very sweet and cuddly with humans but we are working on his social skills with other dogs and he turns into a velociraptor around the cats--for this reason he should probably be in a home with no other pets.
 
He loves to be close to a person when he can and loves to be in your lap (he’s also a great kisser!).
 
Frankie is smart, learns quickly, and is eager to please—he’s already learned his name and “here” and how to “sit” and is rapidly improving with “wait” and “leave it” commands.
 
He has been really good about accepting treatments like eye and ear drops, baths, and nail clipping. He doesn’t seem to mind noises such as a vacuum cleaner or thunder and he doesn’t mind wearing clothes.
 
Frankie so far hasn’t shown any interest in toys (not even the squeaky ones) but maybe we just haven’t found his favorite yet.    He likes to go for walks and we are trying to improve his leash manners (he does pull when he smells or hears something interesting).
Like most Bostons, he snores when he sleeps, but not too loud…and he would probably love to sleep in the people bed if he could (foster has cats so that wouldn’t work out well here….).
 
___Frankie__ is UTD, heart worm negative, neutered, & micro-chipped.
 
  • Crate Trained: Working on it (rides well in crate in car but in house seems to feel isolated and gets upset).  
  • Potty Trained: YES ( with regular trips outside)
  • Dog Friendly:  NO –does not know how to politely interact with other dogs.  May get used to another dog with time.
  • Cat friendly: NO –(turns into velociraptor with the cats)

Kid Friendly:  UNKNOWN but probably OK with respectful kids

 

 

The adoption fee is $225.00.

If you want to talk about me, please contact my foster family at the

Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, Kentucky Region

Email me at: BTRETky@gmail.com and a foster momma or daddy will get back with you as soon as possible.

Keep in mind this is the general mailbox for the entire KY Region.



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.



About Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee

About Our Rescue Group...

All breeds have their own particular needs and rescued pets often have special requirements as well, very often in want of medical care, often lacking nourishment and kindness, and often expensive to rehabilitate.

Because we have had Boston Terriers of our own for many years, we are familiar with their habits, peculiarities and their special needs.

We operate across the southeast under the auspices of the Boston Terrier Rescue Network. We share information and resources in all of the USA with affiliated Boston Rescues.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fees generally range from $400 for pups and up, to usually four years, $275 for adults, usually $200 when we have a mixed breed Boston.

The fee is generally based on the dog's age and provides for neutering or spaying when required, all required shots, heartworm testing (we endorse "slow kill", a monthly prevention program for heartworms, treatment for other parasites, any other vet visits or urgent medical attention required, and supplies to foster homes. It is our expectation & requirement that these same preventative routine medications be continued as well as any required vet visits after the pet is adopted.

If for some reason a match isn't made the first time around and you are approved, we will keep your application on file for the next opportunity to arise. Our primary goal is to place a dog in the most suitable environment, based on the animal's individual needs and its temperament. The commitment is lifelong and the Boston's interests are always foremost.
