Adoptable Pup Wishlist! SAMSON

Hello new friends and supporters. I'm Samson, and I was rescued from a mill about a week ago. I'm now in the loving care of my foster mom, Jill, who will take great care of me until I find my forever home. I am so grateful that there were some humans who thought I deserved a better life. I'm starting to believe I do too.

Here is a list of the things that would make life easier for me (and my foster mom) until I find my family. If you could, perhaps you could send me a treat or something like a collar or harness. I would be forever thankful.

Update on Smokey - Smokey's the Best


My wife Inez and I adopted Smokey almost a year now. I have got to tell you it seems Smokey has been part of our family forever.  He is doing great, he is such a good dog and a very loving companion. We have not had ONE incident with him and if you read his bio that might surprise you. He has to near us all the time and he LOVES to get LOVE. We could not be happier with him and he at one time was very well trained. You can see his expressions now everyday. He used to have terrible dreams at first but they have now disappeared. He sleeps all night and most of the time I find him along side our bed when I wake up. He goes on 2 walks a day if noy more and that is his favorite time . He loves his walks around the neighborhood. When we first took him you could tell he did not trust strangers on the walks ( hair on his back stood up) now he greets them with no problems. We are still very careful because of his history but he has not let us down at all.
 
Smokey loves to be near us no matter what room we are in even our bathroom when we are in the shower or I am shaving. About the only problem we have with Smokey is you have watch when ever you move cause he is always underfoot and I mean always.
 
We might have rescued Smokey but he rescued our little girl Mindy. After our older Boston Mack went to the rainbow bridge she was depressed and lonely. She was never alone in the house. Smokey and her get on great, They are always together. She is a very happy boston again as is Smokey.
 
I enclosed some photos. The one with Smokey laying on the spread shows just what a good dog he is. When he came to us with Lisa. She told us he chews up all his blankets he is given. Well that is the same blanket he was given on day one and its still all in one piece almost a year later and he still lays on it when not on the couch next to me. Which is where he spends the majority of his time
 
I just wanted to update on how our Smokey is doing. We could not be happier with him. I have always hears adopted dogs can be the best and that is certainly true in our case with Smokey.
 
So to describe how Smokey and us are doing in almost a year's time in a word is WONDERFUL.

Adoptable Pups Wishlist! ROCCO and SARA

Hi new friends... We are Rocco and Sara, the rescued mill pups. You may have heard some of our story, and know that we've been through a lot in the past week. We are so blessed to have found ourselves at Linda's house being fostered. Life sure is different when you are free. We love lounging, eating good food and exploring!

We will need a few things before we'll be ready for adoption. If you have a moment and a few dollars to spare, we would be so very grateful if you could donate something. Our foster mama says we don't need toys because there are plenty, but we do need food, supplements and shampoo!

Thank you friends. We know how lucky we are... and we owe it all to you and our friends at NEBTR.

Lucy is enjoying the warm sun today after seeing the vet to have her staples removed . I think she is feeling a lil better .

She's very pretty!

Hank and Frank Update

Hi everyone things have been crazy and stressful over here. The boys went to the vet and they both tested positive for Lyme disease and have some boston eye issues.The boys are still grouchy and are good on walks with my boston. They do not like it if they are in the room together and they try to play. Hank seems to be afraid of sneezing, Fiona trying to play, frank at times and brooms. If Hank gets really upset he gets fearful and if you don't have him on the leash. This fear can get slightly aggressive but if you grab his leash you can easily calm him down.
Frank has been settling in better. He seems to want to play and body bumps Fiona. She thinks it's play time but Frank seems to get nippy. Frank was given a long walk at the park with my mom and her dog. He does great on walks and loves them, he just doesn't know what to do with other dogs once the walking stops. He loves people and kids and loves giving kisses and get so jealous if you share time.I have to tell you all that each one is a total love one-on-one. They got baths on Friday and I can tell they feel better! Bath time for Hank was so stressful for him! We are on our meds and eye drops and taking it day by day. 

More to follow... Katelyn L. Wall, NJ Fiona, Frank (fat frank), and HankP.S. We are so sorry for all the loses! We send you kisses!

Meet Macho Pancho




Macho Pancho has arrived, he is a spunky 9 yr. old boston bull that is set in his ways and will tell you what he wants. He loves to cuddle, he runs outside like a rocket, he loves car rides and most of all he expects several walks a day.  This boy does not like having his body grabbed but who does? He will need an adult home that knows what a boston bull is all about. We have had many fosters but this is the first time my husband said if he was ever going to keep a foster Pancho would be the one!

Glory is Adopted

My one-eyed foster boy Glory is happily living in his new home, loved by all and behaving beautifully with his new family. He even has a blind Boston Terrier sister, with whom he is quickly bonding, they are even sleeping together, and he likes the new parks to which he is being introduced. His human brother and fiancee even drove down to meet him, all in the family! Glory has a wonderful new family, chosen from a record number of applicants, amazing for a seven year old, one eyed dog, with housebreaking issues. His new family is terrific, very dog savvy, caring adults with a nice home in the suburbs and a summer camp in the Catskills, so he'll have lots of fun new experiences. 
Although sad for me to say goodbye, I am consoled knowing that he has such a great home. My resident BT beauty, Abigail, is pleased to have her human all to herself, which will probably end soon when a new foster BT arrives.
And I received the nicest thank you note from the daughter of his former owner for taking good care of Glory and being very careful in his placement.
Below is a picture of Glory, red collar, with his new sister Bella

Thats such a wonderful story - congratulations!!



Duke

We just got home from taking Duke to the vet. The vet thinks the oldest he is is 5 years old based on his teeth, health, activity level etc. So that's good news, we thought he was 9!!! He is a complete sweetheart. He gets anxious when he's separated from us but we're working on that. He gets along great with our other dogs. He chases them around in the backyard. We're waiting on the results from his blood tests to figure out which vaccinations he's going to need. He is being neutered Monday! After all that he will be available for adoption and whomever gets him is a lucky person because he is such a little lover and great dog.

Adoptable Pup Spotlight! ROCCO

Hi, I'm Rocco! Check me out! I am an energetic young pup who is just over one year old. I am past the puppy stage but still have that adorable playfulness and eagerness to learn. 

My favorite things to do with my foster mom are: jogging in Philadelphia, going for long walks at the Jersey shore, playing ball, relaxing at coffee shops, and cuddling with my toys and blanket at home. I know lots of commands like sit and down, but I really want an owner who will teach more things like how to drop during fetch.

I just love going places and seeing the sights around me, I think I could be a "take anywhere" dog! I weigh 22lbs and am crate trained and house trained. I just don't really like cats and don't know how I feel about dogs. I would love to be the only dog in the home. More than all, I really want my furever home! Could you be it?

Please fill out an application at www.nebostonrescue.org if you are interested, and send NEBTR a message on Facebook or on this post!

Samson's First Toy



New Fosters Daisy and Winston



My husband went and picked up Winston and Daisy yesterday.  He spent most of the day with them getting to know them and making sure to earn their trust.   Today I've been with them all morning. They're actually adjusting very well.   Daisy had some accidents yesterday, but I'm going to assume just from stress.   Today we're accident free.  
These two are such big cuddle bugs.  They love attention. And don't worry, Winston will definitely let you know if you're not giving him enough (he's a big cry baby).  He whimpers a lot and might need some help with his manners.  He loves to take the attention away from Daisy to make sure he's getting it all.  But he sure is a ham!  You would never guess he's 11! He has as much energy as my 2 year old Boston.  
Daisy is 13 and is a little love bug. She likes to sleep a lot but when you have to deal with Winston all day I don't blame her. Lol. I have some concerns about her eyes.(But I'll leave that up to the vet) She is blind in one eye and the other is very cloudy like a lot of older Bts.  But she gets around just fine.  She loves her tennis ball as well! She's so content just sitting there with a tennis ball in her mouth.  She'll play fetch too! 
These two are definitely two peas in a pod. 

Courtney Kautz


Huge thanks to you and Joe for springing into action to get these two, Courtney!

Wall of Wishes Award to Eileen Giltz

Here's a special award going out to Eileen Giltz.  She has time and time again purchased items from the Amazon Wish List for gifts to new fosters. 

Eileen says about her generosity: "My mom growing up, and to this day, she/we have always had a Boston Terrier, named Teddy.  Yes, every dog has been named Teddy.  I donated to your rescue before and then I started on holidays donating in honor of my mom.  As she said, if I can't wear it or eat it, I don't want it!  So I started ordering items off the wish list and donating them in my mom's name.  Thank you for all the hard and wonderful work you do!"

Thanks so much to Eileen and much love to her mom and Teddy!

T is Adopted


Adoption day for T today. He is in a house where he will be the only

In honor of Ivan


A Beautiful Tribute to BT Owners from a wonderful NEBTR volunteer.....

I've seen a lot of sad news here lately- members with sick bostons, lost bostons and even bostons who are no longer with us. I just wanted to take a minute and let you know that I am thinking of you.

We lost our boston almost a year ago, and I still cry every single day. I miss him more than I can say. He was a huge personality. He could be so, SO naughty... but he was perfect. He would nip... but then come running back to "say" he was sorry. He would tease his brother, then come over for a kiss. He would tear up his toys one second, then be curled up for a snuggle the next minute. 

He wasn't always good, but he was perfect. I wish I could say I was too. But I skipped walks when I was too cold. I was late getting home from work sometimes. I got frustrated. I yelled. But even still, he loved me more than anything. I wouldn't trade a minute of his sometimes crazy life for a million dollars, and I would cut off my left arm if I could have him back.

But I digress!!

YOU are all awesome. You dedicate so much of your time, your energy, your love and your money to these babies who have, in many cases, lived lives where they received very little of that. You give so tirelessly and freely of yourself and it is truly amazing. No matter how much you try... not every story will have a happy ending... but the fact that you all probably realize that and just keep doing it anyway? It just makes it even more inspiring. 

It's still hard to even look at another boston, and even though Ivan hated most other dogs- I think he would approve of me wanting to give a little bit to try and better the life of another little bostie (though he might not admit it out loud). And it provides me a little glimmer of happiness in an otherwise heartbreaking year.

So for all of you managing heartache of your own- thank you. Thank you for giving so much of yourself and loving these kids so much that it hurts when something goes wrong. That you for making space in your homes, taking road trips to get to a boston in need, for spending time and money on vet bills and food, and ESPECIALLY for making space in your hearts for them. They need you and you are amazing. Your work is recognized, wonderful and so appreciated. Good karma points to you all!


The picture I attached is one of Ivan on his last birthday (the big 1-0). It make me smile, even when I am crying... and I hope it makes you smile too. 


Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It has a big boston shaped hole in it right now.... but that just means he was special, and that I was lucky to be his momma for the 10 years I had him

You are all wonderful.... sorry if I am mushy-gushy.... but I really am touched! 

xo

Jess in MA

Thank you for the eloquent words, Jess, and Ivan was some special boy.


T 's Gotcha Day!!

Adoption day for T today. He is in a house where he will be the only 
dog, receiving all the attention, all the treats, all the love.
It always seems the more difficult the foster, the harder it is to say 
"goodbye" when the time comes.

Congratulations T and Chris!



Spot Update


Spot's foster-mom checking in.  He is an awesome, wonderful, happy, loving boy with us.  Outside of the unfortunate habit of loving to roll in dead things, he is a lover and a pleasure to have in our home.  He would make the right person a wonderful companion.

The deal-breaker so far has been his mistrust and fear in new places, with new people, and with different dogs.  He can turn fear-aggressive in a moment when he's not feeling safe.  It is also hard to take him to places where he can be socialized because other dogs and other people can be unpredictable, and I do not want to put him in a bad situation.  So we've been protecting him and giving him lots of love and security at home.

He likes to swing-on and tug this hanging rubber dog ring in the yard.  He likes to play with toys now and is a great happy BT when he's safe and secure.
Denice


I love when they roll in something stinky and then get sooooo mad at you for giving them a tubby and washing it away! It's like they're thinking HEY- I JUST got this nice smell, why are you getting rid of it???!!

He is so handsome. And he's lucky to be safe and happy with you. Socializing, and even just being out and about with a fear aggressive dog can be so hard.
