Hi, my name is Izzy. I think it might be short for Isabel. My first owners had a larger dog that was mean to me so they gave me to BTRFL. At first, I lived with a foster family that had a bunch of other dogs and I got along well with them. I then went to stay with my current foster Mom a little while ago. She says that I'm really cute (I make piggy noises) and a good girl. There aren't any other pets in my house, but sometimes I stay with Mommy's friend who has three Boston Terriers. We have great fun together.
Sometimes I like to do my own thing and sometimes I like to cuddle and have my ears rubbed. If you give me a treat, I give you a “High 5” with each paw! I love going for walks with my foster Mom. Sometimes I get into a little trouble though because I can be protective of her and bark at other dogs that are walking. If you are firm with me, I'll quiet back down. While I would like to have a yard to play in, it is not a deal breaker. I also really like playing with kids.
My foster Mom lets me sleep in bed with her, but I'm also happy sleeping on my own bed. I have a favorite toy. It's a rabbit called "Flop Flop" that I like to gently chew on. While my time in foster care has been great, I'm really excited about finding a forever home for Flop Flop and myself. Are you the right one for us?

Some of the dogs listed may not be cleared for adoption yet and many may be adopted prior to when you are approved and are next in line to work with the Adoption Coordinator. Please do not despair. We have new dogs coming into our Rescue all the time regardless of whether you see them posted here or not. If you are willing to be patient or if you are willing to adopt one of our older dogs, we suggest that you apply as soon as possible. The Adoption Coordinator works with the older applications first to find good matches with the dogs we have available at that time. Waiting to apply until you see a dog posted that you like usually ends with that dog being adopted by someone who submitted an application before you.
If you are interested in adopting, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application. http://bostonrescueflorida.org/available-for-adoption/adoption-process/
Because we have Boston Terriers of all ages, we have a sliding scale for adoption fees generally ranging from $300 to $600 based on the age and health of the dog.
In general the fees are:
$600 - 9 wks to 23 months
$550 - 2 yrs to 3 yrs
$475 - 4 yrs to 5 yrs
$400 - 6 yrs to 7 yrs
$300 - 8 yrs to 9 yrs
For dogs 10 yrs old and older, we just request a donation.
Our fees cover vetting costs, shelter fees, fuel for transport while in the rescue, copying and printing of contracts and paperwork, our website presence, food, boarding, behavioral training and additional medical care. While the dog you adopt may not require all of these things, many other dogs in our system do. By adopting from Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida, you are not saving just one life, you are helping to save others as well.
