boston breeders or rescue groups in florida?  
hello! my boyfriend and i have been wanting a dog for the longest time and now that we finally have the schedules to permit it we're going for it. i've wanted a boston terrier for as long as i can remember and now that the time is finally here i'm having so much trouble finding one! i've searched pet finder, all of our local shelters, the newspaper, craigslist, you name it. there are usually bostons at our local pet store but i don't want to buy a puppy from a pet store unless it's my only option. we'd really like a puppy or a boston that is less than a year old. so my question is does anyone know of any breeders or rescue groups in florida? i'm willing to spend whatever and drive almost anywhere in florida for our perfect puppy. we just want to give a puppy a wonderful home!

if you have any other suggestions let me know! thanks :) also all of your pictures are so completely adorable, i can't wait to have some of my own to post!

I found my baby! I found a breeder in Lake City who has 3 males and 2 females right now. I think I know the little boy I want but we're going up on saturday to meet the puppies and put a deposit on one because they're only 4 weeks old :) I spoke with the breeder yesterday and he said he'd hold the male I chose based on the pictures just in case but when we get there we can choose the one we'll get to take home in another 4 to 6 weeks!!

thanks for your help and suggestions!

You could have one shipped from a breeder. That's just what popped in my head. :)

i have thought about that as well, i guess i'd feel weird buying a puppy without meeting him or her first but if anyone has any recommendations or out of state breeders i'd be open for that as well.

What were you keying in for your petfinder search? I pulled up one using the 32043 zip that delivered quite a few bostons in rescues. Canine Rescue up in North Augusta SC has a couple, and Panhandle Rescue out of Crestview FL has one. :)

the problems i've actually had with petfinder is that a lot of the rescue groups won't let me adopt a dog! i've only found a few in state bostons and i filled out applications and was turned down by email because i live in an apartment even though i assured them the dog would be get plenty of outside exercise. as for out of state rescue groups so far three of them have told me that they do not adopt to out of state families.

oh, hey jackie :)
there is http://www.flbostonrescue.com/index.php as far as rescue goes. i don't ever see too many puppies on there though and most of the Bostons on that site have health problems and/or physical deformities. that's not to say they aren't perfectly good dogs, they'll just require more care.

you can also search http://www.floridabostonterrierbreeders.com for a puppy.

i rescued my Boston Bam almost 7 years ago and he is easily the best dog i've ever had. whether you rescue or buy from a breeder, you're going to be really happy with your new dog. :)
