What Is a Boston Terrier?

Update on Marty



Wow!! It's been a great 48 hours for me at my new foster home. I am so glad I am here. I have a nice comfy bed, lots of petting by my foster family. I think I know my name; when my foster mom calls me I look around a bit and then realize she is calling me and I come running. I have this really cool blue squeaky stuffed bone toy that is my favorite toy. I was afraid of it at first but then I like the way it feels in my mouth. I broke the squeaker part already though but I still like to shake it around. I am still unsure of all the yard I have to play in but I think i will learn to love it. Here are some pics my foster momma took of me. She felt I was being such a good boy that she slowly introduced me to my foster sister and brother already. They are boring, don’t care much for the cat, although he does smell interesting. The beagle smells interesting too but not interested much in her right now. I have learned to sit on command, which pleases my foster momma and gets me a small treat! whoo-hoo!!

Since my bath on the first day I came to my foster momma, all those pesky fleas are GONE!! Feels so good to be clean and flea free! 

Thanks for everything!! i am adjusting to FREEDOM nicely!! :)



Marty looks like he is in love and pretty happy.

Thank God he is free to enjoy life now.

Marty - you sure are cute and it sounds like you are having a great adventure with your foster family. Good for you - you deserve it!! xo

Update on Maddie–She’s Looking for Her Forever Home


Maddie says, "Excuse me foster mama, but when will you be finished with yoga??"
Maddie came and sat by the back of my mat tonight while I was practicing-so cute! She didn't think yoga was very exciting, she just wanted me to hurry up so she could get some attention.
She's been enjoying life in NYC--lots of long walks and a few trips to the dog park.
Maddie is listed on Petfinder now, so hopefully that's one step closer to finding her forever home. This sweetie deserves it. Keep your fingers crossed for good news soon.

New Foster Roxy

Roxy is my new foster!!! I picked her up yesterday from the rescue who had her.  She is an absolute sweetheart. She lived with kids, is fine with cats, and is fine with dogs as long as they aren't the white fluffy type.  She spent a lot of time outside at the last rescue, so I gave her a much-needed spa day yesterday: a long bath, got her looong nails cut, and lots of soft toys, and hugs and kisses of course.  She loves soft toys and stuffed animals! It is the cutest thing!  She is very affectionate. She wants you to pet her and give her belly rubs all the time.  It's almost like she needs to be touching you at all times.  She is really sweet.  She is fine being in her crate and was excited to jump around in it when she got here (I had it all set up for her with a dog bed and toys).  She slept in our room in a dog bed and woke me up at 5 am, tail wagging and excited to start the day! She was like "I'M HERE!! WAKE UP MA! !! LET'S GO PLAY!!"  What a wonderful way to start the day.  She has a little bit of skin irritation, needs work on her leash manners, and needs to get used to her surroundings (cars, bikes, noises).  Oh, and she is 26 lbs and doesn't want to (or know how to) go up or down stairs so I am getting a workout carrying her, but I think we will start practicing with her once she gets more settled.  Other than that she is pretty much perfect!

Hi Roxy! Welcome, you have a great foster momma, and you’re gorgeous!

From the Rescue Dogs


More From Sherry







Hi everyone! It's Sherry here! Just wanted to let you know how I am doing! I'm really loving life in my foster home! It's a bit different than I've been used to but I'm adjusting so quickly! My foster mom takes me on so many walks and there's so much to smell! Before I came here I only went outside to do my business once or twice a day and had papers inside for the other times, but my foster mom says I don't need those anymore. I only had one accident on the second day and I've been here almost 5 days now! The grass is so nice outside that sometimes I just like to plop down and spread out in it on our walks. I just love it! I can hear my foster brothers upstairs but I haven't met them yet.

I think my foster mom expected me to have a reaction when I hear them being loud upstairs or when I see them in the windows of the house when I'm on my walks because she heard that I don't like other dogs but I'm really not interested at all and just mind my own business and don't make a peep. I've seen a lot of new humans on my street and I'm a bit slow to approach them but boy after I do I just love everyone! I've even seen another tiny dog a few times going on a walk like me! He walked next to me once and after about 10 seconds of not taking my eyes off of him I didn't care anymore, I was just happy to be on a walk. I never even barked!

My foster mom is always telling me how great I'm doing and how sweet I am but I'm just being me! Well, it's time to do my other favorite thing and nap in this cushy bed burrowed under all these blankets! I have a vet appointment on Tuesday so ill keep you all updated! Bye friends!


Love, Sherry

Many, Many Thanks to Jeff Valois


Many thanks to Jeff Valois, a photographer from Central Massachusetts.  He undertook a project “all about celebrating the most awesome dogs around: Boston Terriers. At least 50 of them. They're charismatic, photogenic, and come dressed in custom black and white suits. Who can top that?”


Jeff contributed $1000.00 from the project to NEBTR with a note, “Donation from the For the Love of Boston photography project. Thanks for all that you folks do!”


NEBTR sends many, many thanks your way, and this awesome gift will be used 100% to help Bostons in need.  Jeff will also be permanently listed as a member in the “Gold Bone Society” on our website, our highest level of thanks.  You can read more about Jeff’s project here.

Shudder, It's Monday

Puppy Mill Attitude


'Tis lonely here in prison,
I dream of sun, of fields,
I saw them from a window once,
but I don't know how they feel.
I've never known a caress,
a friend, a bone, a toy,
I'd happily companion,
a human girl or boy.
But some men have decided,
with selfishness and greed,
that my fate shall be a cage,
and for my keep, I'll breed.
What should fuel this folly?
My kind may bark in vain.
We care not for your commerce,
and few know of our pain.
We're hidden well from justice,
for our freedom some may cry.
God grant me, please, just one request -
Let me play once before I die.
* * * * *
Dedicated to the millions of animals who never knew the sun and fresh air, those regarded as property, and who profited human bank accounts.

Say hello to new foster Marty!
Marty came from a puppy mill.  The miller released him to rescue, and thanks to Denise DeMarco, Liz Shockley,  Debbie Wanner,  Tammy Horan, and Christine Manzella,  this beautiful boy was transported to Christine, who will be his Foster Mom.

He took the ride in stride, and Christine  found a groomer not to far from her who was willing to give him a bath and trim his nails and clean his ears for FREE.   Thank you to that groomer!

THIS IS ONE VERY LUCKY LITTLE BOY !   THANK YOU TO ALL !  This is rescue in action.  So many people helping to get this Mill boy to us.   Thank you especially to Christine, for offering her home to him.  We look forward to hearing about further updates!
