Ricky was rescued from MDAS, a High Kill Shelter in Miami. He was dumped off because he was a Senior! Ricky is a very affectionate little guy and loves to snuggle with his people. He also loves his dog bed, which is in his crate. He has poor eyesight, but manages to navigate in his Foster home, without any trouble.
Ricky is looking for that fur-ever kind of love and in return he will give you the best companion you have ever had. Please consider adopting a Senior; they really are the best companions and they don't require a lot of training.
They are laid back and like to sleep.

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.
