My husband and I found her a few years ago as a stray in Chattanooga, TN. We already had 3 rescue dogs but she was in bad shape (emaciated, very cut up and was not spayed) so we decided to take her in and foster her until we could find her a home.
Long story short, we ended up falling in love with her and she initially got along with our other dogs just fine. Over time though, she started to get more reactive - she would pick spats over a toy or a treat or things like that and eventually it just got to be dangerous for her and our other dogs. She's never had issues with people, but because of her weirdness with dogs, we think she needs to be the only pet in a home.
My dear friend has been fostering her for us in Nashville and we've been trying very hard to find her a loving home for the past few months. It was one of the most difficult decisions we ever had to make. We love her so much and she's truly one of the best dogs I've ever met. She's incredibly sweet and in tune with human emotions, loves to cuddle up to you and LOVES to play fetch. We just want to find her a perfect home where she can thrive.
To give you some more details about her: She's about 4 - 5 years old, about 50#, short fur so she doesn't shed a lot, up to date on all her shots, spayed, she knows all her basic obedience commands (sit, down, drop, come), is house trained, knows how to ring a bell on the door to tell you she needs to go potty outside, LOVES to run/play fetch/ and swim. She's reactive when she sees dogs out and about so making sure she's on a leash or in a fenced yard is key to keeping her safe from her own impulses. She's never had any health problems and is just as sweet and goofy as can be.

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.
