Sullivan Fritz - June 2022 - 8 month old male from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee

Sullivan Fritz was a breeder surrender as a young pup due to a deformity of his penis along with restricted nostrils. The veterinarian wanted him to grow a bit before attempting surgical repair. He since has been neutered, the restricted nostrils and elongated soft palate have been corrected. But the penis deformity was too complicated at the time. He was referred to a surgical specialist for this correction. BTRWW would like to congratulate Sullivan Fitz on his “Foster Failure” as he is being adopted by his foster family.




Bobbles - May 2022 - 9 year old male from MidAmerican Boston Terrier Rescue

Bobbles had not seen a vet in a few years. Upon examination, he was in need of a dental and diagnosed with a grade 2 heart murmur. Bobbles had his teeth cleaned with two extractions. Many were worn down from chewing but luckily no exposed roots. Bobbles can go on to feel much better and find his forever home.




Phoebe - May 2022 - 8 year old female from MidAmerican Boston Terrier Rescue

Phoebe was turned over to rescue by her owner who was disabled and no longer able to care for her. When she arrived her eye was bulging with no vision. When her eyes were tested, she had glaucoma in both eyes that had not been treated. The pressure in her visual eye is being treated with medication, however, the dead eye had to be removed to eliminate the pain. Phoebe can now be pain free and find her forever home.




Ocsar - May 2022 - 8 year old male from MidAmerican Boston Terrier Rescue

Oscar was turned over to rescue by his owners after he bit a toddler in the home, as the result of the child taunting him. When he arrived he was having lots of accidents and dripping urine. He went in for a full exam to be diagnosed with stage one kidney disease. He also was in need of a dental and a cyst removed in his thigh. Oscar has been placed on a special diet, the cyst removed and his dental completed leaving him in a better place to be adopted.




Larry - May 2022 - 5 year old male from Forgotten Dogs Rescue (Seattle)

Larry came into rescue at 5 years of age from Tacoma Humane. He was an owner surrender due to his medical issues and there was a good chance that he would have been euthanized due to his complex health issues. Larry has a badly formed tail that is causing bacterial infections and a mass in his ear that is also causing infections. Larry will receive the treatment he needs to make him feel much better and get him ready to find his new forever home.

6/16/22 - UPDATE: Larry had his surgery yesterday. They ended up doing a full ablation of the one ear as the mass was pretty extensive with a bad infection and an abscess ias well. The vet said he thought Larry probably didn't hear much out of that ear, anyway, so he might not notice any hearing loss.

They also amputated his tail and he got neutered. Big day for the little guy! But, he is back at his foster home and on the mend.




Domino - May 2022 - 5 year old male from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee

Domino is having behavioral issues and needs training to possibly be adoptable. Domino began working with a K-9 behaviorist a few weeks ago and seems to be doing somewhat better.

Boston Terrier Rescue of Western Washington along with Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee hopes that this therapy will be the thing domino can thrive with to find his fur ever home.




Bones - May 2022 - 4 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Bones was an owner surrender. During his examination with the rescues vet, it was noticed he had a broken K-9 tooth. When he was sedated for the dental extraction, it became apparent that Bones needed many extractions. Dental work is so important for our pups to reduce infections, pain, and removal of teeth.




Maizey - May 2022 - 11 month old female from Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue

Maizey AKA Noodle came into rescue at a young age of 11 months. She had an underdeveloped cerebral cortex and it causes her difficulty with balance, depth perception and controlling going potty. There is no treatment but there will be ongoing medical with her. The rescue will ensure that she had the best of care and lives a comfortable life.




Boomer - May 2022 - 5 year old male from Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue

Boomer came into rescue as a 5 year old who was born deaf. He found himself in an unfortunate situation when he was hit by a car and sustained a right hip dislocation, right eye injury and lacerations and road rash. The good news is despite the fact he hadn’t been seen by his vet since he was 12-16 weeks old, he was heartworm negative and fairly healthy. The vet who called MWBTR started his vaccines, performed a hip reduction and neutering all at no charge to the rescue.

Boomer is a very good boy, loves his human and wants to be near. He is housebroken, his deafness is not a concern and he knows sit, come and walks on a leash well. He was struggling with his hip and was taken to the vet to get some staples out, have his hip and eye rechecked, and his vaccines completed.

Unfortunately, Boomer is faced another surgery. His hip is still dislocated and he is requiring a Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO). It will enable him to walk and run without pain. He might need to have his eyes removed. It is doubtful he can see out of it now and the rescue is giving him ointment to keep it moist to see if any of the damage resolves. If not, that will come out as well. Boomer will also require laser therapy after surgery for rehab purposes. Boomer will have extensive medical bills and if you wish to continue to help Boomer and the rescue you can send donations via PayPal for Boomer to btresq@charter.net.
