Bogart Gelett AKA “Bogie,” is an Owner Surrender. He came to us with his brother, BJ Porter.
The boys are 7 ½ yrs old and have been with their owner since they were old enough to leave their Mommy.
Bogie is a bit timid upon first introductions, but warms up quickly.
He is potty trained and has mastered using a Doggy Door.
His new family will need to watch him for a week or so; he did tinkle in the house a couple of times, but learned quickly. Now he is golden.
He is currently working on crate training and making progress daily.
Bogie loves his walks, but is a bit of a puller on the leash. He is getting better each day with practice. And, he really, really enjoys a car ride!
He wants to be with his human, even if it means just being in the same room with them.
He tends to be a bit of a bed hog and loves to snuggle up next to you! A typical Boston Terrier!
Bogie loves to be petted under his chin and behind the ears. And you will get lots of kisses with this guy!
He is definitely food driven, so is working on his manners in that department (He used to have to compete with his brother for his food).
He also tends to be a bit grabby when it comes to taking treats. So, it’s best not to hold the treat between your fingers or you could get a little nip!
He hasn’t shown any food aggression with the other dogs in the home though.
Bogie hasn’t seemed interested in toys, even though we’ve tried many different kinds. Perhaps we have simply not found the right one yet.
Bogie is a sweet, gentle Boston boy and will make a wonderful addition to any loving home.
About Bogart Gelett/Bogie:
If you are looking to add a lively companion to your home, Bogie could be your guy!
He must have a single person, couple or family that is active and intends to make Bogie a true part of their family.
Bogie will warm your heart and your bed (if you let him). You will wonder how you ever lived without this boy!
If you want to know more about me, please email my buddy Christine at the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee, Florida Division at: email@example.com
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.
