100 POUNDS OF PRECIOUS IN A 12 POUND BOX




This is how Julie Tee's original foster mom describes Miss Julie Tee. JT as I will refer to (Julie Tee is long to write) is an extra special baby among all our special babies at BTRNC. She is about 2 years old and didn't have a very secure life before coming to rescue. She has a sensitive stomach and an allergy to plastics. She sometimes has problems with throwing up when she is moved to a new environment until she settles in to her new surroundings.

BTRNC tries hard to match dogs with prospective adopters and the foster moms are willing to spend hours on the phone with new families to try to work out issues. We require an agreement from any adopter that if at any time, a rescue dog needs to be re homed, they are to be turned back in to BTRNC and nowhere else. Sometimes a match doesn't work out as we and the prospective family had hoped and we open our doors and hearts to return these dogs to our group. This was the case with JT. She was adopted but it wasn't the right fit for this extra special little girl so she returned to her original foster mom. She has recently relocated to a new foster home where she is reported to have settled in quite well.

JT is high energy and whoever is lucky enough to get this girl will either want another high energy dog for her to play with, have a high energy family, or be a high energy person. She has been known to overwhelm other canine playmates with her endless energy. She barks at cats but shows no intent to harm. Perhaps she is trying to figure out how to engage them in play as well.

JT will do best on a high quality chicken based dog food and enjoys milk bones as treats. Medicine is very successfully folded in a small piece of cheese. She takes Tagamet for her stomach condition and eats from non plastic bowls. Yes, there are extra steps for this angel, but by all reports, she is well worth each one. We bet that when she is in the right home with the right match and knows she is there for good, her nerves and her stomach will settle down. Don't let her precious little face fool you, she is smart and loves to see how much she can get away with if you let her. Her fears are best controlled by ignoring them - resist the urge to cuddle and tell her everything is o.k. To do that confirms for her that she is right to be afraid.

JT needs to feel secure in her new home. If you are the type that loves to save those who need to be needed, then Julie Tee may just be the perfect match for you. Her "extra" needs will not be a chore for the right someone, but rather the "extra" special care for this extra special girl. She is a loving loyal boston girl who will make the right somebody a companion for life.

My husband and daughter found her under someone's car in a busy CVS parking lot so they brought her home. I quickly fell in love with her but my two dogs did not. They were very jealous and we are only allowed to have two dogs were we live so I gave her to the Boston Terrier Rescue. I am glad to see that she is doing well and I hope someone will adpopt her soon. She is so sweet and deserves a good, secure environment with lots of love.

Julie Tee is such a cute little girl. I know she will find someone to love and accept her for who she is, these little ones always give us much more than we give to them. When she finds her perfect match they will be so lucky to have her be a part of their family.
