Max - January 2023 - 5 year old male from Black Tie Boston Terrier Rescue

Max is literally the sweetest, most loving, and grateful boy. He made his way to Black Tie Boston Rescue with a sad story about an owner who was in need and "no known issues" . . .sigh. We will just thank God he did find his way to us because Max is the one in need..this fella is anything but healthyÖ.he has violent, debilitating and lengthy seizures, he has rotten teeth , abnormal breathing and a heart murmur.

1-1-2023 UPDATE: Our Max has been scheduled for a chest x-ray this week and will be referred to a neurologist to get an MRI to see if he has anything going on that we need to address. He has started seizure medicine and has a follow up appointment later in the month for his skin and thyroid.

1-16-2023 UPDATE: Itís a sad day at the rescue as we learn that Max will be moving from the list of adoptable dogs to a sanctuary foster. An MRI diagnosed Max with an inoperable Pituitary Adenoma (brain tumor). Since his arrival to the rescue, he has been having seizures lasting 10-12 minutes and hasnít been feeling all that great. We promised to do everything to make him better and today we promise to make the last days be his best days. We sure do hope it will be more than the 3-6 months the vet has given him, but when the time comes, we will give him the best send off. He is sweet, obedient, and a great companion to both dog and human friends.




Remi Bristol - January 2023 - 6 year old female from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennesee

Remi had a fast growing mast cell tumor growing on her front leg. Two vets concurred that she should have a new treatment called Stelfonta. It is an injection into the tumor to kill it.

The tumor could not be surgically removed because there was not enough skin to cover in site. The only other option was to amputate her leg.

Remi had her injection and is healing very well!! She has been adopted by her foster family.




Nolan Knight - January 2023 - 18 monthr old male from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennesee

Nolan was pulled from a Miami, FL shelter. He had been hit by a car and had a fractured pelvis. He was quickly transported to Knoxville, TN where he received reconstructive orthopedic surgery to repair his pelvis. A medal plate and screws were used to get the bones in the correct position so Nolan could have an active life and be adopted. He is recovering in foster care.




Snickers - January 2023 - 6 year old female from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Snickers is a breeder release. She came in needing full medical care including a hernia repair and dental. Snickers had her hernia surgery and 10 teeth pulled. She is recovering well and will be up for adoption soon.




Merry - January 2023 - 2 year old female from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

MABTR was contacted by a breeder with a female that had a prolapsed rectum after giving birth 3 days earlier. She needed immediate medical care. We were able to get her into surgery within 24 hours. We didnít know if she would make it but took the risk. Merry made it through surgery and spent the next week at the vet recovering. Now we have to put more weight on her.

Merry is a happy girl who has found her forever home in Kansas. This is another happy ending!




Lilliana - January 2023 - 4 year old female from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Caesar - January 2023 - 8 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Caesar is an energetic toy obsessed boy. He came into rescue due to his owners divorcing. Our vet determined that he needed a dental and needed to have two tumors removed including a mast cell tumor from his scrotum.

Caesar is recovering nicely from his surgeries. The tissue was sent out to Histopathology and based on the results it will be determined if he can be adopted out or be placed in palliative care due to this type of cancer. For now, Caesar is still in foster care.




Cubby - January 2023 - 5 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Cubby was surrendered by an owner who didnít have time for him. He arrived already neutered but needed a dental. He had 7 teeth pulled.

Cubby did great recovering from his multiple extractions. He has found his forever home in CO.




Ziiggy - January 2023 - 6 month old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Ziggy was found in a shelter drop box. He arrived with a damaged eye, a hernia needing repaired along with a neuter. He was neutered and had his eye removed first. Then Ziggy went back to have his rectal hernia repaired. His surgery was delayed a bit as we had to clear coccidia which was causing him to strain.

Ziggy is recovering very well. This happy go lucky boy will soon go to his new home in CO where he will share his energy, joy and love of life!
