BTRWW has helped these rescued Bostons
from April to June 2023
Boston Terrier Rescue of Western Washington (BTRWW) provides grants to 501c3 rescues and organizations that take in and care for Boston Terriers with special needs beyond routine care.
Diesel - May 2023 - 3 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue
Diesel came from a breeder. When Mid America BTR picked him up, she said he was struggling to breathe. He had elongated palate surgery which made a huge difference in his breathing. He is now happy to run and explore in his yard.
He was adopted to a Nebraska family. He is loving life outside his cage!
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 Sparky’s medical needs. AZBTR rushed him into the vet for an emergency eye enucleation. There were complications while Sparky was intubated. He aspirated and spent an extra day under observation for possible Pneumonia. He dodged a bullet and did not develop pneumonia.
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.
Tippy - April 2023 - 11 year old female from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue
Tippy was one of the four dogs that came into MABTR when their owner passed away. She is 11 years old and was already spayed. She had not been to a vet in several years. She needed a dental with 4 extractions. She also needed an ultrasound of her thyroid which had a cyst on it that was found during her dental. The rescue had it aspirated and unfortunately, she was diagnosed with Carcinoma Thyroid Cancer. Tippy recovered well from her dental but because of her cancer she was placed in a palliative care program with MABTR in Omaha, NE. She will live out her life with everything she needs.
Lottie Lenya - April 2023 - 16 year old female from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee
Lottie Lenya was picked up as a stray and taken to a shelter. This sweet little old lady is 16 years old. She had several very hard mammary tumors. BTRETN took her in and removed her tumors. She was also spayed at the same time because her ovaries may feed more tumors. The surgery was done so that Lottie would be more comfortable and be able to live her best life with her forever foster. You go Lottie!
Blue - April 2023 - 9 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue
Blue was one of four Bostons turned over to MABTR. He had not been to the vet in many years. Blue needed to be neutered and have a major dental with 19 teeth extracted. He also has a swollen thyroid gland which will need an ultrasound. Blue is recovering and is already acting like he is feeling much better.
Blue was adopted out to a family in Colorado.
Oinkers - April 2023 - 9.5 year old female from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue
Oinkers is 9.5 years old and only 13 pounds. She and another Boston were removed from their home by the Humane Society due to neglect. They were turned over to MABTR due to their emaciated condition and the need for medical care. Oinkers also needs her luxating patella repaired. She came through her patella surgery with flying colors. After her recovery she will have a major dental done.
Oinkers was adopted out to a family in Colorado where she has lots of those fluffy squeaky toys.
Latch - April 2023 - 11 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue

Sarge - April 2023 - 11 year old male from MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue
Sarge, an 11 year old, was found as a stray and landed in a local shelter. Due to his age and medical needs, he was turned over to MidAmerica BTR.

Sarge has found his forever home in MO.
Peter G - April 2023 - 4 year old male from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennesee - KY
Peter G. a 4 year old, came to BTRETN last December as an owner surrender. He needed cherry eye surgery on his right eye. He had pocket surgery done and was soon adopted. A few months later he had to have a repeat surgery on the same eye. His new family paid for the second surgery. Peter G. is a lucky guy!!
Precious Quigaman - April 2023 - 11 year old female from Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennesee - KY
Zeus and Precious were pulled from a rural shelter and scooped up by BTR of East Tennessee-Kentucky Division last December. They are a bonded pair and will stay together. Both came into rescue with medical needs. Precious also had 4 masses removed and a dental. The rescue thought Precious had a UTI, as she was peeing everywhere. After that was cleared up, she was doing very well until she ate a block of rat poison in February. She was rushed to an emergency vet where she was hospitalized, given IV fluids, activated charcoal and neuro monitoring.
Precious survived with no adverse effects. Precious and her brother are permanent fosters with BTRETN - Kentucky division. They are living a life filled with love and everything that they will need.
