My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hellooooo there!  My name is Happy, and I am about 4 years old, 25 lbs.  I am a super-fun boy, and very loving!  I have high energy, but also enjoy relaxing as well.  I take a few minutes to warm up to new people, but once I do I get along with anyone!  I am house trained and crate trained.  I will do best in a home where I am the only dog, and with older kids only.  If you are looking for a really fun dog who is equal parts energy and snuggles, maybe I am your boy!  My adoption fee is $375.  MUST BE AN ONLY DOG AND NO YOUNG CHILDREN. ADOPTER WILL DO BEST WITH A FENCED YARD AND NO APARTMENT. MUST AGREE TO ATTEND SEVERAL TRAINING SESSIONS WITH HAPPY AT A FACILITY IN NEAR MCKINNEY, TX. 

If you are interested in any of our Boston Terriers or would like to be eligible to adopt a Boston Terrier through our rescue in the future, please fill out an application. It can be found at Click on the Rescue tab and then on the Adopt Now! tab. Here you will find our adoption requirements along with a link for an online adoption application. This will allow you to get on our list of approved homes so you can immediately adopt a Boston Terrier when it becomes available through Boston Terrier Rescue of North Texas.

We are always looking for good foster homes. These homes allow us to rescue more Boston Terriers in need because we have a place for them to go until they are adopted.

Here you will find our requirements for becoming a foster parent along with a link for an online foster application. This will allow you to possibly become a foster home for one of our little Boston Terriers in need. Thank you for considering the possibility of fostering for Boston Terrier Rescue of North Texas!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Upon approval of your adoption application, an Adoption Coordinator will contact you via email or telephone to match you/your family with one of our available Boston Terriers. Once a dog has been identified as a good match for the home, the foster home will contact you to schedule a time to meet the dog as well as conduct the home visit. If you pass the home visit and the meet and greet goes well (the dog is a good match for your home/family and any existing pets in the home) a 72-hour trial period will begin at that time. The foster will collect the signed adoption contract as well as the adoption fee prior to leaving. Once the 72-hour trial period has expired, the adoption will be finalized.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

All of our Bostons are in foster homes. An application must be filled out and approved prior to meeting any of our dogs.

More about this rescue

The Boston Terrier Rescue of North Texas began in the late 1980's when it became evident that there was a need to help Bostons in need. Thus, the humble beginnings of the Boston Terrier Rescue of North Texas. Calls poured in weekly from pounds and individuals about Bostons of all sizes, ages, shapes and colors needing homes. Rescue of today is one that is dedicated to educating the general public about making good choices when selecting a breed and, secondly, the right Boston for their situation. Over 1,000 Boston Terriers have been successfully adopted to loving homes since we began. It is through hard work and dedication to this very active and amusing breed that this organization can contribute its successes. "Thank you" to all of you who believe in recycling love.

We help dogs with serious medical problems because we believe, whenever possible, that every dog should have a chance for a happy, healthy life. Unfortunately, our veterinary expenses often far exceed the amount of the adoption donation, and we must rely on dog lovers like you to provide financial assistance.
