UKBTR Supporter Dog of the Month for March - Bertie

 Click Image to view video in new window

Bertie was sent to me. When I lost my beloved bull terrier of 13.5 yrs it really broke my heart. My home and heart felt so empty and knew I needed another dog in my life, so I got hunting for a breed that would suit our lives. We chose a Boston terrier.

I got in touch with a few breeders and asked so many questions, and within a couple of months we found our Bertie. He was 14 weeks old and I fell instantly in love. He is the most adorable, funny, crazy, loving dog. I call him my little angel. He had massive shoes to step into after my bull terrier Winnie, and boy has he filled them.

I love him to bits, it's lovely to have won the auction for March as Bertie will turn 2 on the 3rd March.

Every Boston deserves the best...

We love Boston Terriers! They're a cute, comical, caring breed who, when matched with the right owner, will provide many happy years of companionship.


We know there are lots of people like us, who love and care for their Bostons - and believe us, we'd much prefer it if we didn't even exist - but alas, there are Boston Terriers up and down the UK who are not being treated as they should be; beautiful, bouncy Bostons without a comfy bed at night, or a human to give them the best of everything...


There are also people who, for many reasons, are no longer able to keep their Boston Terrier and because of their love for their pet want to ensure they go to a home that has been fully checked and will have lifelong back-up.


We are a registered charity (number: 1163435) and are recognised by the Kennel Club as a breed specific rescue.


We attended Crufts 2016 under 'Find a rescue' - What an amazing achievement, and it was so lovely to meet and greet so many people. Thank you to everyone who visited us on the stand and everyone who donated.

We provide a complete breed specialist rehoming service across the UK. In our experience, Bostons prefer beds to cold kennels, so we operate via a home fostering network. This means we can provide a home-from-home environment for all the Bostons that come into our care, whilst they are assessed, vet checked and matched with a new family.
