Petey Picasso is a handsome, 9-year-old, 20-pound gentleman who came to us after hopping around from family member to family member after his human mom died. Since coming to his foster home, he’s been a perfect little guy! He gets along well with non-dominant dogs, though he prefers to be his human’s number one!

This little guy loves to play fetch and play with toys. He plays a bit excitable with them but does give them up to his person, especially for you to throw the ball. At night, his foster mom covers him with a blanket and if she doesn’t do it fast enough, he’ll do it himself! He is crate trained but whines a bit when you first put him in – he does settle down and does sleep through the night easily.

Petey does well on a leash and would make a great companion for walks. He does have a floating kneecap in one leg and had had surgery in the past on the other leg for the same condition, but they don’t seem to bother him at all. This is fairly common in small-breed dogs.

This fellow would be perfect for someone who likes light exercise but also enjoys a good snuggle on the couch. Petey truly just wants to be with his person at all times and becomes attached to you easily. He has such an open heart and truly wants to love. Petey has a wonderful personality with a cute face to boot!

Yes to non-dominant dogs (he wants to be his human's #1), unknown to cats and kids maybe 10+ because he plays rough with the ball and if you're not careful he'll give you an unintentional pinch when he grabs the ball or toy from you.

For more information, you can e-mail techbtret@gmail.com. Petey is being fostered in the Washington, NC area.

 

The adoption fee will be $275.00.



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.
