Lucky is an approximately 10 year old purebred Boston boy, weighing only 16lbs, who just wants someone to love him.
He was surrendered to the rescue after his lifelong owner moved away and a family member who had no time for him was left with him. He is the sweetest boy, house trained, sleeps most of the day but also enjoys playing with other pups, and eats up any affection he is given.
He has a stage 4 heart murmur, although it does not require any medications at this time and doesn't seem to affect him at all as he shows no outward symptoms of it. He has cataracts, which bother him a bit, but mostly only on un-lit staircases.
He also has a bit of dry skin, which can be cleared up with the appropriate shampoo. Overall, he is the sweetest little guy I think we've ever fostered and such a great dog! Great with kids and other animals. He would make anyone a great and loyal companion!
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

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.
