Kenji Franklin is an Owner Surrender; he was born deaf and knowingly adopted that way. He also does not see well enough to chase a ball; he sees mostly shadows. His owners decided to move onto a house boat...that didn't work well as Kenji couldn't navigate the dock, hated the constant movement of the boat and simply became extremely unhappy.
The fact that he's blind and his vision is limited, is not an issue as he navigates absolutely fine. He is very attentive and smart. He is a sweet older guy (very little gray) and is in great shape! He â¤'s walks, belly rubs and gives the softest, gentle kisses ever.
When he sees I've got his leash/harness, he gets very excited, twirls in circles and does a dance...so stinking cute!!

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.
