Adopt a Boston Terrier

There is no other dog like a Boston Terrier. They're playful, loving, energetic, adaptable - all in equal measures. There's never a dull day if you've a Boston in the house. However, before you go any further you have to ask yourself this one question:

 

Is a rescue Boston Terrier right for you?

 

Rehoming a Boston that's lived somewhere else before is not the quick, easy or cheap way to get a dog. They might not be reliably housetrained (and may never be), have behavioural issues such as separation anxiety and whilst we assess the dogs that come into our care and try and address as many issues prior to rehoming, adopting a Boston with a history can sometimes prove a lifelong challenge. Are you ready for that and prepared to put the work in?

 

Before any dogs leave our care, we make extra sure that they're going to the right home. That means lots of probing questions, one (or more) home visits and quite a bit of paperwork.

 

And then we wait: you wait for someone to come out to your home and check that it's Boston proof... we wait for the vet to check the dog over and make sure there are no medical issues... you wait for us to assess the dog and discover what kind of home he or she is best suited to.

 

Once a match has been made and you take on a dog from us, you'll be asked to pay an adoption fee to UK Boston Terrier Rescue. This goes towards the love and care that we've given your dog before finding them a new home with you and helps us to help other Bostons in need.
