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 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.
