    Journey was saved from the streets just in time for her to have her 5 beautiful babies. She was known by local residents and they would feed her. One day animal control came along and were trying to catch Journey in a live crate. She is one smart cookie and never went near it. In fact one of the ladies that had been feeding her was able to get her to come into her place of work which is how she was saved. The lady was not able to keep her and asked for a rescue to help her. We stepped up to help her and it was a few days after that she gave birth to her 5 girls. They have all now been adopted and Journey is now looking for her special ... (Read More)home. She is one special girl who loves her foster family very much.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This dog is located and fostered in Tennessee. Minimum Adoption Donation $75 in TN, $125 plus transportation fee for out of state adoptions. Meet River, a good boy, a fast learner but it's true - he has a face only a mother could love! This adorably awkward guy has a huge underbite and a lopsided, snaggle-toothed smile. But SMILE he does, especially when there's food or toys around. River is about 2 years old and weighs about 45 pounds. We are guessing that he is a Boxer / Boston Terrier mix. River is great with other dogs big and small, but wants to play chase with kitties. He loves to run and play in a fenced yard - playing ball is a ... (Read More)favorite game. He is housetrained and crate trained but would love to sleep in bed with you. River is an easy going guy who loves women but takes a little time to warm up to some men. If you have food, he will be your new best friend! River is outstanding at learning obedience commands - he knows Sit, Down, Stay and Leave it and is working on Come and Heel. River is ready for adoption to a loving home. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Boston Terrier in Tennessee
    Boston Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe. Boston Terriers, or Boston Bulls, are small, intelligent dogs. Boston Terriers are gentle and sensitive but can be very playful and rambunctious. Boston Terriers are easy to train since they like to learn and want to please their masters; however, they can be difficult to housebreak. Boston Terriers are exceptionally good with children and the elderly. Boston Terriers do not bark without good reason. Boston Terriers can live in an apartment or in the country, but they are sensitive to extremely hot or cold weather.

    Boston Terriers are bred down in size from pit bulls and other fighting dogs, but modern varieties are not very aggressive. The Boston Terrier was the first pure American breed to be recognized by the American Kennel Club. Boston Terriers are members of the Brachycephalic breeds. Brachycephalic comes from Greek roots meaning short head.
