Archie - May 2023 - 1.5 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Archie was a family surrender to MidAmerica BTR. He was transported from MN to NE because he had drool and saliva coming from his mouth. Many tests had been done but no answers to his issue. He was like a St. Bernard in a Boston body. They could not afford the additional tests and were frustrated by the constant clean up. The rescue scoped him and found that he had a hairball! Yes, a hair ball that you would find in a cat, not a dog! Archie had the surgery to remove the hair ball. It was as big as a fist. Shortly after his surgery Archie was a normal dog and no more drools!

Archie was adopted to a family in Nebraska. He is a happy playful boy.




Conrad - May 2023 - 1.5 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Conrad was adopted by a family in Missouri and has a four legged friend to keep him company.




Jake - May 2023 - 2 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Jake came to MidAmerica via a family surrender. He was attacked by two dogs in his home. As a result, his leg needed to be amputated which his family could not afford, and he was not safe in the home. Jake spent a week in the hospital to try to save his leg. But that didnít work.

Baby Girl - May 2023 - 12 year old from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee

Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee took in a 12-year-old Boston girl as an owner-surrender. She was taken immediately to the vet and then on to the nearest emergency facility for overnight ICU care. She has diabetic ketoacidosis. This occurs when the body starts breaking down fat at a rate that is much too fast. The liver processes the fat into a fuel called ketones, which causes the blood to become acidic. It's very touch-and-go with a guarded prognosis.

The doctors did everything in their power to save Baby Girl, but the uncontrolled diabetes was relentless, and her body just shut down.

Baby Girl is now at The Bridge.




Sparky - May 2023 - 1 year old male from Arizona Boston Terrier Rescue

Sparky was surrendered by his owner due to a severe eye injury after a dog fight. The owner could not pay for Sparkyís medical needs. AZBTR rushed him into the vet for an emergency eye enucleation.

Sparky recovered from his surgery and is waiting to be neutered.




Bailey - May 2023 - 6 year old male from Forgotten Dog Rescue

Bailey was an owner surrender to Forgotten Dog Rescue due to a persistent eye infection. His family was not able to continue to pay for his care. When he came in he actually had a severe corneal ulcer with a deep corneal stromal abscess and dry eye in left eye. Bailey also has retinal degeneration in the right eye that will need monitoring. He required surgery right away.

Bailey did very well with his surgery and recovery. He will remain with his foster until his eye is completely healed.
