Jersey's Story...

Hi! I'm Jersey and I am a very good boy! I lived with a family for a while but they said that they couldn't keep me so they turned me into the shelter. It was scary for a few days until my guardian angel went to save me and then got me to Finding Shelter. Phew! It was a close call! No one wanted to adopt me because I have a red bump on my eye called "cherry eye." It's actually an inflamed tear duct and I agree that it might not look the best, but it is cosmetic and should not be removed because it can cause dry eye problems in the future and that would hurt me. So, we are looking into options to see if it can be corrected with a little surgery to tack it down. Get it? We're "looking" into it? And it's for my eye! Ha! I guess you know now that I have a sense of humor. I am super clean in my crate and in the house (I don't have accidents inside at all!) I also love to cuddle and I have a bit of an obsession with playing with my ball. It is the very best thing ever!!! My foster mom says that I am perfect in every way and she knows that someone will scoop me up and love me forever. I hope that you are the one for me! I am here just waiting to find my family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jersey, a Norristown 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 Norristown, or seeking a Boston Terrier dog from a breeder in Norristown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norristown 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 Norristown 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 Norristown paves the way for another one to be saved.
