Facts about Handsome Hofstetter SC

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 11279666

The name Handsome certainly fits this  3-year-old boy. He is really gorgeous in person. The way he holdshimself & his whole body structure is  something to behold. He's a powerful dog, a pit bull mix. When the photos were taken, he weighed 48 lb. but we have tried to fatten him up a little, so he's probably 50+ by now.

We pulled Handsome out of a shelter because he was to be killed that night. He's in a boarding facility in SC since we did not have a foster home that could take him.
 
Handsome has the best personality, so sweet & affectionate. He has been with an older child (9) and did awesome.  At the vet, anything they did to him was absolutely fine. Sweet, sweet boy. We have been trying to judge whether he is good with other dogs, but that's hard to do in a  boarding or even veterinarian office environment. So, it would be best if he's the only pet.  Our certified dog trainer has offered 3 free training sessions to the adopter. This would have to be in the Augusta, GA/Aiken, SC, area.
 
Handsome is heart worm positive and is on 'slow-kill' treatment that just requires giving him 1 Heartworm pill (ordinary Heartgard) a month which is supplied by the rescue. In our experience, dogs on slow-kill, will become heart worm negative in 12-15 months. He also had a mast cell tumor (cancerous) on his side, but it was removed with good, clear margins and was low-grade on the pathology report which is great news. All medical records will come with him, of course. He has been neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated.

Transportation north is available too at a very reasonable rate.




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 BTRET of Florida

About Our Rescue Group...

Our main goal is to save Boston Terriers but we also accept Boston mixes. We take owner surrenders and pull from shelters (we'll never leave one behind in a shelter to die, even if it's injured or a senior). We also take in abandoned animals and help other rescues who have saved Bostons and can't get them adopted. We treat all of our Bostons like family members and we do what we can to help the senior dogs live their lives out comfortably.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have no physical facility, all our animals are in private foster homes throughout the state of Florida.

Our Adoption Process...

Online application which requires 3 personal references, a vet reference and all animals in the home must be spayed/neutered, UTD on vaccines and on heartworm preventative.

If these steps are all approved, then we do a home visit, have the adopter sign a contract and pay the adoption fee prior to picking up the dog from the foster home.
