DOGS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
I am a 30lb Boston terrier looking for a forever home. I need a calm environment and a family that can be patient with me. I would love to live in a household with adults and possibly older kids. I’m not the best around small children. I need to be an only dog as I don’t get along well with other dogs. I prefer not to be alone, but it's okay if I am for a little bit.
I can become anxious, so my human will need to give me my daily meds. I’ve grown very comfortable with my foster humans, and love it when I need attention and they pet me. I also like to play once in a while, but I play well alone, too.
I sleep in my crate at night and will let you know when it is time to wake up and let me out. A fenced-in yard is best for me. I also love to explore and take walks and am comfortable on a leash. Just remember to always keep me on a leash if you do not have a fenced yard so I’m not tempted to run.
“Toby came to MBTC an emaciated wreck. His first foster family was able to get him on the path to good health and stability. He got medical care, good nutrition, walks, and tons of love. Toby came to me when his first foster family had to move to an apartment. I knew he was meant to stay with me."
"Toby LeRoi went everywhere I went. He loved pontoon rides, running in the country, doing tricks for snacks, and snuggling. He loved everyone and had tons of friends. He passed away quickly in the fall of 2021, but will always be in our hearts. Thank you MBTC.”
"Archie and Winnie are doing great – happy, healthy, and sassy. Winnie is a little bossy, especially when she wants supper and she will ‘scold’ you with a goofy little howl-y bark. Archie can be a bit of a handful with his anxiety and dislike of other dogs."
“A professional dog trainer worked with him and he is a work in progress that will take a lot of time and patience, but we’ll get him turned around. He is a love bug and is the SWEETEST dog ever! Seriously! So tough to resist his goofy natured disposition."
"I’ve heard 100 times 'I could never do that, I could never give them up,’ but being a member of this club - knowing how much thought, care, love, and attention goes into placing these dogs – makes it so much easier."
"Plus, foster ‘parents’ are able to assist in the process of adoption. To witness the faces of a family when they get a dog that you have helped to place is absolutely priceless. It isn’t easy, but it is incredibly gratifying."
Pets provide many benefits to their owners, and studies suggest they may help their humans live longer, healthier lives.

Thank you for considering adopting a Boston Terrier from the MBTC Rescue!
Please review our policies to understand our process and expectations.
• Rescue Bostons are mostly older dogs, many with medical needs. Puppies are rarely available. Two dogs from the same household are placed together.
• A fully completed application must be submitted with a $5 processing fee. We will contact you when a good match is available.
• All rescues are examined by a veterinarian, shots updated, and the dog evaluated for additional medical needs.
• The dog is fostered for about one month to evaluate health and temperament while we search for the right “forever home.”
• Adoption cost: $150-$500 (depending on age and health), plus microchipping.
• Adopters must sign a “contract for companion quality rescue dog,” stating that the dog being adopted is a purebred rescue dog.
