Nutmeg's Story...
***Please consider being a foster mom and dad to a pet in need. It is a very rewarding experience and it will help save a dog's life.***

** Female, Purebred AKC Boston Terrier
** 5 Years, 16lbs
** Housetrained
** Crate trained
** Good with dogs, unsure on cats but happy to test
** Dog respectful children 10 and older
** Adoption fee $350

Health: Nutmeg & Cinnamon are spayed/neutered, microchipped, wormed, flea treated, current on DHPP, Bordatella, and Rabies. They will also have health certs, HW negative, and dental cleaning.

More About Me: Meg is a doll. She is friendly, social, happy, loving and sweet. She is excited to see her people and loves meeting people in her home where she is comfortable. When she first arrived she had a couple days where she completely shut down and had to be kept on leash for the first couple days to ensure she would come to us and we could catch her if needed. So we expect similar behavior in her new home. She is still unsure when she hits new surroundings and can shut down a bit. She needs more outings and adventures to get through this and become more secure. She loves her people and has the CUTEST smile she makes when she is excited (some dogs think she is snarling at them, but it is just a smile she makes). She does OK on her leash, but will still freeze and does not walk very well on her leash so more work is needed in this area as well. The first several days we were taking her out on leash and it has come to our attention she does not potty well on her leash at all – we had a lot of accidents at first in the house and in her crate (she would NOT potty on her leash at all – and she can spook and run with loud noises in the beginning when she does not know you – so a fenced yard would likely be best). Now she has figured out where outside is and how to ask to get out (i.e. going to the door), but she can still have accidents if she is not let out regularly when she asks (she was a kennel dog prior so there is a different learning curve on potty outside than a dog that was brought up as a pet from day one) – so if you are looking for a perfectly housetrained dog she would likely not be a fit as some housetraining will need to occur especially in the beginning. She cowers at loud noises and shuts down so a quieter house is best for her. She is very attention hungry and wants to be the center of everything. She has also found her voice and if crated at night she will bark at around 4:30 am and she also barks at the door. Meg is a great girl with a ton of personality and charm, but she does need more work with leash walks and new places.

History: Nutmeg and Cinnamon have both had one litter of pups each. The breeder fell upon economic hardship and had to give them up along with many many others. Most of the other dogs went to rescues and were placed several years ago (we had help place some at that time as well). Nutmeg and Cinnamon were given to a fellow breeder. Unfortunately they were kept kenneled and were quite stressed in the new breeders place so they never went into heat again. The original breeder/owner purchased the dogs back and is now asking for our help to place them. We are happy to have them join us in rescue.

**Please click here to complete the Adoption Application so we can meet**

Your adoption donation is used to care for and vet the many dogs that enter into rescue from overcrowded shelters where their time is running out-ultimately they are on death row. Your adoption donation goes directly to the care of the many dogs that enter into rescue. All dogs leave rescue vaccinated, sterilized, microchipped, wormed, flea treated, and medically checked out. In some cases they receive dentals, ear flush, surgeries, and so on to ensure that they are healthy and ready to be adopted. Your adoption donation is very much appreciated and needed to help care for the many needy dogs that enter into rescue. New adopters receive a FREE exam coupon at a local veterinary clinic in Lynnwood OR a $30 care voucher to a veterinary chain (so be sure to ask about these coupons if you are interested).

NOTE: Please do not email for more dog info. This is all the info available until approved application is received and then you can talk directly to that dog's foster home for further info. Thank you!

NWIPR's adoption process includes completion of an adoption application, a vet check, screening, in person meeting, a home visit and a lifetime adoption contract. NWIPR is the pet's advocate and will select the most suitably matched home for the dog's general and unique needs, therefore adoptions are not done on a first come first serve basis. We reserve the right to refuse service and adoption for any reason.

PLEASE NOTE: The information contained within this pet's biography is based on observations from the current foster home. NWIPR is very honest about the pet's behavior and needs (and provides up to date information), we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners as individual household dynamics vary greatly.

***Do you or someone you know have the desire to help a rescue dog? If you have a loving heart, dog experience, a safe and secure yard and the notion to make a difference, please consider fostering a rescue dog. There are MANY dogs that we just do not have room for and just one person can make a world of difference to a dog that needs a safe place to rest his or her weary paws.....***

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nutmeg, a Lynnwood Boston Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boston Terrier for sale in Lynnwood, or seeking a Boston Terrier dog from a breeder in Lynnwood.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lynnwood already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lynnwood breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boston Terrier breeders who help with Boston Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lynnwood paves the way for another one to be saved.
