 Slugger Joe is a big, handsome brindle/white Boston boy that is around 6-7 years old and 28 pounds.   

Slugger Joe is a wonderful little guy with tons of personality! He loves his people and enjoys human attention very much. He living with 6 other dogs (Pugs and another Boston) in his foster home and learned to manage his sometimes dominant personality around some of the other dogs. But, due to his sometimes-dominant personality, he will do best as an only dog. His people really are his focus.

He's joyful and playful, and has also become a cuddler when he wants to be. He does love a soft lap and quiet, soothing conversation. He enjoys antlers and the occasional stuffed toy and has shown no desire to destroy anything.  He is now altered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped, house trained & loves to go for walks.  Slugger has also learned to go into his crate without argument.

The adoption fee for Slugger will be $300.00  Please be prepared to meet Slugger near Atlanta, GA as he's not available for transport.  Current pet history is a plus and prior Boston Terrier experience preferred.  No homes with children under 12-years old and no other pets please.  Our adoption process always begins with an application found at: www.bostonterriertn.org

If you have any other questions, please contact my buddy at the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, via email:  btretn.rescuer@gmail.com

NOTE:  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.



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.
