Butler Baloo is an older (vet estimates 9-10 yrs old) that's weighs around 30-pounds. He was turned in to the shelter by his owner that just didn't want him anymore. He spent a week alone, scared and confused until we were called to pull him from doggy jail. But, that's all behind him now and he'll never be homeless again.
Butler is current on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped. He has impeccable house manners with regular outdoor potty times. Butler is very quiet and well behaved, but we've noticed some minor food bowl guarding with his larger foster siblings. It's very possible a learned behavior from his original home, but we're working on it. He doesn't engage or seek out the other dogs to play with in his foster home, so he'll be just fine as the only dog. Butler totally ignores cats and really enjoys being near his people. He's a low-energy guy that's looking for a quiet home & someone to hang out with and love.
The adoption fee for Butler will be $225.00
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.
