Winston came into our lives back in Easter 2015. He was the first Boston we transported from Scunthorpe to a foster home in Stafford. He has, or had, lots of problems which we deal with, but it does not affect how much we love him.

Unfortunately Winston disgraced himself at his foster home when he bit his foster carer; he also had a seizure whilst there. Because of the seizure problems, which are very frequent and intensive, along with his aggression towards humans and other dogs, we were asked if we would take him under our wings as we had already applied to adopt him. We jumped at the chance.

Winston continues to make good progress regarding his aggression towards humans, and we know when not to approach him. He continues with his seizures, having had 49 since being with us, but since his medication was increased after tests, they are no way as intense, occurring at 2-3 weekly intervals.

Winston gets on very well with our daughter's Boston, Dexter, and I was surprised just how well he behaved when we joined other Boston owners at the Hunstanton meetup.

Last year we took Winston to Spain for 6 weeks which he enjoyed, and he is going again in April.

 UKBTR Supporter Dog of the Month - Archie

Hello, My name is Archie, and I've been living with my new Daddies for over a year. I still get nervous about most things but I am getting better. I'm nosy to whats going on in my house and the village, and especially nosy when the doorbell goes, or when Oscar the cat sits outside my window. I love window watch, even if no one is out there and I love going on my walks. All the neighbours know about me and they respect my space and I like this a lot.

My daddies have allowed me to trust other people when they visit our house and I give them kisses, even if they are scared to get them! when I am good I get rewarded with my favourite Blue Boomer ball and delicious treats.

I like my trainer Jenny, she taught my Daddies click and treat. When I am out and things make me nervous, they click. When I hear this, I know I am getting chicken. I like playing this game and it makes me feel calm.

I have new uncles Paul and Djalma, I stay there sometimes. They give me lots of treats and I keep my other Boomer Ball there to. This year, myDaddies are taking me on holiday in a seaside cottage, and I am looking forward to it.

I am very happy and lucky that UKBTR has given me a second chance in life and hope many other dogs like me can experience the happy life that I am having. Check out my Boomer Ball in the pics xx Logo

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.
