Toby Tebow is a purebred male Boston terrier, 7-8 years old and weighs 21 lb. He was originally adopted from a rescue that has now closed.
He is sweet and playful, loves car rides and the water hose. However, he is extremely anxious during storms (tries to hide, not destructive) and can be a little aggressive with his food, but that's easily managed by feeding in his crate or a different room from other dogs in the home.
He would do best in a home without small children, as they make him a bit nervous. He is very loyal and cuddly with adult companions. He gets along with dogs but can be somewhat dominant. He would be fine with a more submissive housemate, but he's not good with cats.
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.
