I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Issues: Suede has had surgery for juvinile cataracts and will need yearly eye exams and possibly eye drops for the rest of her life.
Suede will be two-years-old on July 5, 2007. She is a seal (red & white) 20 pound, spayed female who is up to date on all vaccinations. She is heartworm negative. Suede came to us at the age of 9 months after having been bought at the age of 9 weeks for the purpose of breeding. When her owner discovered that she had juvenile cataracts, she turned Suede over to Boston Brigade . As the intent was to breed her, Suede was not socialized well with either humans or other dogs. She had never seen grass, was afraid of loud noises, the wind blowing, just about everything. She wouldn't let you get too close to her and would run if you tried. Suede was adopted by a wonderful woman who nursed her through her cataract surgery and helped Suede develop her social skills immensely. Now, due to devastating personal and health issues, a new home must be found for Suede. Suede is still very much a puppy! She does like to get into mischeif and occasionally will take "toys" such as throw rugs outside to drag around the yard. She needs another dog(s) to play with and is very energetic and curious. She will best tolerate a dog that is quite playful, but not aggressive in play. Suede had surgery for prolapsed rectum and it was very successful and she has no problems with that at all. She also had successful surgery on both eyes to correct juvenile cataracts which would have led to total blindness had they not been removed. She now is doing fantastic and can see very well. We would like to see Suede placed in the San Diego area to continue her follow up care for her eyes following surgery, which will consist of a yearly exam and possibly eye drops. Here is what Suede's mom had to say about Suede's personality:
Suede is a unique Boston Terrier - not only in color but in personality too. She is a little stand offish at first until she gets to know you and will bark at you. If you keep ignoring her she will calm down and then seek you out for attention. She is very food oriented and will do anything for food. She is crate trained and housetrained and uses a doggie door. She loves to be outside and play with her toys. Squeaky toys are her first love. She likes to go for car rides. She is a talker and tells me stories all the time. She loves to sit on your lap while watching TV and get belly rubs. Because Suede had such a hard start in life we are looking for someone that can be patient and loving with her. Suede would be a great lure runner as well as agility. She is very prey driven. She will do best with someone who is dog savy and understands that her early vision problems left her with some need to meet people slowly and let her warm up to you gradually, and then once she does, she is just a playful little monkey girl who has tons of love to share.
