Hi, this is Rodger. He is up for adoption through a local Boston Terrier Rescue and I want him! He seems to be a perfect fit for our little family. I e-mailed the rescue, but I was wondering if anyone had any info they could share regarding adoption via rescues.

He captured my heart.

rescues
We have two BTs we got through Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue (MWBTR) and they are awesome! The dogs are awesome and the rescue is great, too. They have SO many dogs who need homes and because all the dogs are fostered before they're adopted, you really get a chance to find out what the dog's personality is like. The foster fam and rescue people can tell you - this dog is house trained, very energetic, a cuddler, etc. We have two BTs with very different personalities (though they get along great) and it was so helpful to have that info before bringing each of them home.

I highly recommend rescuing a BT! If you have other questions please feel free to ask.

I got my bad boyTM from a rescue and I just love him with all of my heart. It hasn't been without surprises...not knowing anything about where your baby has been (or been through) for the past X years is hard, but I wouldn't trade him for the world. Adoption is definitely the way to go.

This is Gizmo...he's been with me for almost a year now :)

My advice is to be patient. Many rescues are just overloaded with work and are staffed by volunteers and it might take them a bit to get back to you. If you follow up with them, just be understanding that they're really busy! :D

if rodger isn't being fostered yet inquire about fostering to adopt. it gives you a good amount of time to get to know the dog and see if he fits with your family. i am foster for arizona bt rescue and i adopted a bt mix from there in august. i am still learning about him and his quirks. there is always more than meets the eye with rescues. buddy was actually pretty nasty when we first got him, biting, fighting with my other bt, peeing and pooping all over the place. it took some time but he is finally fitting in. if you do get to take rodger home remember to give him the benefit of the doubt. he may have had little to no training and supervision.
