CeCe - December 2020 - 10 year old female from Mid West Boston Terrier Rescue
As with most of the pups in rescue, we do not know the whole story, but CeCe was with an over the road truck driver for a year and he could no longer take care of her. When she came to rescue, it was apparent that she had lost her vision. The vet confirmed that her eye had ruptured and was never treated, causing her pain. Her other eye had a corneal ulcer and the drops were no longer helping. CeCe has had enucleation surgery and is recuperating in her foster home. She loves car rides and her personality is really starting to show. Even with no vision. She is thriving in her new environment

Little Enzo has a long way to go before his little body can handle the surgery.
UPDATE - Dece,ber 22, 2020 - It is with a heavy heart that we received news from Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue that little Enzo has crossed over to the rainbow bridge.

Sometimes, in these delicate situations you just never know what the outcome will be. Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue and all involved are so devastated by his loss. He was such a fighter. Rescue did their best and Enzo did, too.

Dozer - October 2020 - 9 month old male from Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue
Dozer is a 9 month old puppy that was an owner surrender. His family made the difficult decision to surrender Dozer due to his mounting medical bills. Almost from the moment they adopted Dozer, it was like they were watching him die, he was so ill. After coming into MWBTR's care, he was rushed to the vet. It was found he had, what they believed to be, a growth on his intestines. It had burst and he was becoming septic. He went into surgery and it appears to have been successful and he made it through the first night.
Dozer is making slow but steady progress post-surgery. His blood tests are showing improvement and he's starting to show his little puppy personality! He'll be back for a checkup in a few weeks and we're hopeful he'll be able to come off some of the meds he's currently on.
UPDATE - December 21, 2020 - It is with a heavy heart that we received news from Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue that little Dozer did not make it. Little Dozer got another tear in his intestines. The lining was just so thin, and they were not able to save him. What's even more devastating is that he was slowly but steadily improving and they had such high hopes for him. Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue and all involved are so devastated by his loss. He was such a fighter. Rescue did their best and Dozer did, too.
We all know rescue is hard, especially when it involves such major medical issues. Your support gives Boston Terrier Rescue of Western Washington the ability to assist rescues and rescues the ability to give all these precious souls a fighting chance.
Thank you for supporting us and for believing in Dozer.

UPDATE - November 14, 2020 - Jax is doing well overall. The Dr. still says that he is in remission. At his appointment Friday they told us his bone marrow counts are low so they put him on antibiotics and are delaying his next chemo treatment by a week to give him time to recover. UPDATE - October 15, 2020 - Jax had bloodwork done today. His counts were on the lower side but still within safe range to start Procarbazine that he will take for 2 weeks. Every time I take him to the oncologist they tell us how much everyone adores him. He really is such a charmer.
UPDATE: October 12, 2020 - He is such a love. He’s always eager for attention of any kind, especially a belly rub! Chemo treatments have been going well with minimal side effects and maximum benefit.

Maxx - April 2020 - 3 year old male from Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue
Maxx came into rescue underweight by at least 10 pounds. He was ravenously hungry, but within 10 minutes of eating he would get diarrhea. His food appeared undigested suggesting it was not going through his digestive system. Maxx needed a diagnosis and an ultrasound showed abnormalities in his colon and the beginning of his intestines. Originally Maxx was treated for parasites in hopes that surgery could be avoided. Unfortunately, he did not respond as the doctors had hoped and he underwent surgery on Monday, June 15th. The doctors took 5 different biopsies and we are hoping for some answers next week.
BTRWW sends their prayers for little Maxx and hope he finds his fur ever home.

While giving Hercules time to recover from kennel cough, he developed an abscessed tooth and a hematoma on his ear (Mostly likely from scratching his ear with the injured toe). Hercules White had his hematoma drained, a tooth extracted and his toenail was removed and bandaged. He should make a full recovery. His Foster mom says he is on pain meds and is being very clingy and super cuddly.
Hercules White's Foster Mom says that he is the sweetest, most gentle loving sweetheart. He is very chill, and all he wants to do is give kisses and be right next to you at all times. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He has come so far in the time he has been in foster care.
Zion King - March 2020 - is a 1 year old male from Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida
Zion King was surrendered because he was seriously ill. His Foster Mom brought him to a local with vomiting, coughing, lethargic, and not eating. The vet you examined him referred him to a specialist, so she immediately drove 5 hours to get him to the University of Florida Vet School. He went in through emergency, was immediately hospitalized with IVs and fluids and was placed in isolation. Along with intestinal hookworms, the vet suspected that Zion had aspiration pneumonia or a viral pneumonia so they took x-rays and sent out samples to a lab to test for viruses. They were quarantined in a hotel awaiting results, which were all negative, allowing them to return home.
THE GREAT NEWS IS that Zion is now doing much better. He is eating again but he still as a little bit of a cough. We are now feeling much more confident that the antibiotics and lots of foster love will help him to make a full recovery.
