Devin is a 1 year old, male Boston terrier - chihuahua mix. He weighs about 14 lbs.
Devin is a cuddly, quiet fellow. He is learning to play with soft toys, so far his favorite seems to be the stuffed elephant. He does not yet play with other toys but he seems interested in them. He is a happy fellow but seems to be afraid of larger dogs. He responds to them by barking a lot.
At this point, I have found him to be a bit food aggressive to other dogs but I think that is due to being hungry before he came into rescue. His foster mom is working on it.
With his long skinny legs, he is learning to ‘dance’ when asked. This helps avoid the feet on the counter when not asked. He does not jump or lean on the counter now, but the foster mom is working on positive proactive behavior training.
Devin would do well in a home with or without another fur friend
Devin has not been around children, foster mom believes her would do ok in a home with quiet, dog respectful kids 12 years & older.
Devin Devine is UTD, heart worm negative, neutered & micro-chipped.
The adoption fee is $225.00.

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.
