    Adoption fee $350 Location: South Texas What is my name you ask? I'm a Betty. A Good Samaritan found me curled up on the side of a country road covered with bite wounds inflicted by a large dog, some of which where infected. My wounds are now healed, I have been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, undergone Heart-worm treatment and I am now in search of my forever home who will cherish me. I am beautifully house trained, crate trained and I love children. My favorite things to do are: cuddle, receiving belly rubs, sunbathing, chasing squirrels and I give as many kisses as you will allow. I do well with most dogs and I am able ... (Read More)to find my place in the pecking order of the pack, but I do not like high energy dogs who play rough and jump in my face. I do enjoy a low key game of tug of war with the laid back fur friend in my foster home. I do guard my food bowl and any treats from the resident dogs, so a home who understands this and could provide me a separate area to eat my food and enjoy my treats would be a must. My foster mom says, I would do fine as an only pet or with other fur friends, an apartment or a home with a secure backyard. As you can see I am a versatile, easy going girl who could fit into almost any home. If you would like to adopt me, fill out an adoption application today. I promise to pay you with unending kisses and cuddles. (Less)

My foster mom says that I'm always happy and smiling because I have the cutest little under bite! I like to show-off my cute under bite and give lots of kisses to my people! I've been told that I'm a delightful girl and full of energy. I love to play outside, and my foster mom says that I'm quite obedient off-leash. I always come when she calls me. Did I mention that I love to play with my toys? I could play with toys all day long! I am good with other dogs, but sometimes I get a little nervous around small kids. ...

PIease Read Before Adopting a Boston Terrier in Texas
    Boston Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Texas 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.

lnteresting Boston Terrier Trivia Low-Cost Texas Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Boston Terriers are bred down in size from pit bulls and other fighting dogs, but modern varieties are not very aggressive. Boston Terriers are members of the Brachycephalic breeds. Brachycephalic comes from Greek roots meaning short head.
