Most Boston Terriers have expressive ears.  Some more than others.  My Riley was born with sattelite dishes on top of his head that he almost but not quite grew into.  He can wiggle them lay them back stand them up and do one of each.   Every movement indicates a different mood. 

This is our new rescue Stout.  He was picked up as a stray but wearing a ver nice collar.  Look at that face and the position of t he ears.  He is clearly terrified at the whole experience.

 Surely someone would come to claim this precious boy.  He was held for 10 days and no one came forward which I have come to accept as not that unusal but still very sad.  We were happy to step up for this big guy.

Turns out he is the "sweetest" boy his foster Mom has ever seen.  House trained, well mannered and gets along with other dogs and cats.  He is also a big boy at over 30 pounds.  Now look at his ears.  He is no longer terrified and so happy to be in a safe home.

We ran a facebook name contest which returned 131 likes and almost as many names.  His foster Mom got the honor of picking the winner and she picked Stout.  Seems like a pretty good name for a very good big boy. 

Stout will be making his debut on our Available Dogs Page soon but if you want to play a part in keeping Stout's ears up and happy face, contact us now.  This guy is truly an American Gentleman.

I think Stout is a fine name. I can't imagine why anyone would would abandon this guy. I would take him in a heartbeat, he looks about the same age as Fred. I'm on the west coast, so not sure how that would work.
