So I'm new to this community and I just thought I'd say hello! I used to have 2 Bostons but they sadly passed away about 5 years ago. I'm now moving into a new apt and am dying to get another one. I also wondering if anyone happened to know where I could find Boston puppies within 3 hours of Buffalo, NY. I really can't go over $450 for one either. I've been looking online for about 3 months now and all of the pups I find are way outof state and would need to be shipped, which I'd rather not do. So any help would be much appreciated!
I am listening to: Ben Kweller: On My Way

have you considered adopting? i'm sure there are quite a few shelters located in or near buffalo. most of the BT's that find their way to shelters are older, but there are always exceptions. i adopted my BT from a shelter and he was barely 2 years old, very much young still but out of the puppy stage. adopting also has it's advantages as far as skipping the pottytraining and oftentimes the huge mess that is puppy-hood. you'll be hard pressed to spend over $100 adopting from a shelter! so it is cost effective as well :). www.petfinder.com is a GREAT resource for adopting- it allows you to search by specific breed and location. what i did to find mine was i called a few local shelters every single day until one day one of them had a Boston! sorry to bother you with my long schpiel if this is not something you would be interested in, but i thought i would take my chances just in case, for the sake of any homeless BT's out there! :)

I don't have an immediate answer for you, but my stepmom is a groomer in the southtowns and volunteers with the whisker wagon. I'll tell her to keep an eye out for you.

I live about 2 hours south of buffalo, near Alfred New York. There are people around here that sell their dogs for around $400. There was a couple from wellsville that my brothers girlfriend worked with that had them.
My first boston came from a town called bolivar, and I adopted my second from the Allegany County SPCA.

have you tried craigslist?
may I suggest you try http://www.craigslist.org. You may place an add for wanted boston terrier. There may be someone breeding or someone that can't keep their dog and needs a new home. Good luck
