Please finally welcome BAM BAM the boston terrier, into our family! We just got him today. He's so tiny!!! Maybe 15 pounds or less? 5 years old. His former owner had him for 5 years before giving him up because their new dogs were bullying him. They lost interest in him after his first birthday, no more pictures after that. We found out about him through a local boston terrier rescuer who was in contact with the owners. He was transported to a foster home for a few days until we got back from our honeymoon (we came home earlier than intended because of that heh). He's such a charmer. He has warmed up to us already and LOOOOVES to snuggle, a dream come true! He hides food because usually the dogs he lived with would take the food from him. I think he is going through shock because of how docile durf (our 11 year old black lab/chow) is. Durf even lets him take HER food heh, but we try to not encourage that or he could become a bully himself heh. I cannot understand why his former owner would ever give up this sweetheart? But can't complain since WE get to have him now, or rather he gets to have us :) We're already smitten with this little big man.

We have already bought eye wipes, ear wipes, dog shampoo, toys, a name tag, bowls, collar, and a retractable leash. Also of course little doggie treats :)

I was wondering how much food do you feed your adult boston terrier, assuming that he/she is a small one about 13-15 pounds? We are currently feeding him a handful twice a day, but I thought I'd ask you guys for your opinions. Also feel free to throw in any advice, we have open ears/eyes and would appreciate anything, as this big man is our first boston terrier and we want to make sure we do everything perfectly! Heh.

Here's pictures!!!

    In case anyone still checks this community, I thought I'd post this. My Lainie died yesterday. She had turned 11 years old not long ago. I took her…
