Dallas' Save

Last Friday evening, BTRNC learned that a Boston Terrier was sitting in a high-kill shelter. The dog had been on the adoption floor for two days. Although he had no doubt done his best to catch the attention of passerbys no one noticed him. Terrified that the dog would be heading to the shelter's gas chamber, our volunteers rushed to the shelter the very next morning and adopted the dog. All in a span of 12 hours.

That is dedication.

This is Dallas' save. How Dallas ended up at the shelter is a mystery. What we know is that we rescued one very grateful dog. Dallas is on his very best behavior in foster care. He listens to his foster mom, he does his business outside and he accepts his role as newcomer in the pack. He is submissive and he is sweet. He is a dream. After a week in foster care we are yet to unveil any "issues" or "flaws" in Dallas' personality. Nothing that would tell us why someone would let this teddybear slip through their fingers.

Their loss. Our gain.

Dallas is ready to be adopted into a home that will hold this guy tight. His placement limitations are few. He is obedient, he is housetrained, he enjoys other dogs and we suspect he might get along with children- even the little ones.

Visit Dallas on the Available Dogs page. If this is the guy for you, get work on the application! Better hurry or the Bashful Boston might beat you to it.
