Boston Terrier Tea Party Rescue
Sandy Wilson lives on the shore in Massachusetts with her Boston Terrier, Houdini. This sweet little girl was just seven months old when this dog was lost on the beach. She has come to live with Sandy in her Cape Cod home ever since. Houdini has become the family’s new protector. Sandy wants to help pay for the vet bills that are piling up so she is planning a tea party to raise money for the animals in need.
Sandy has a friend named Terence, who lives in Vermont. He took the little Boston terrier to a breeder in Maine who specializes in Belgian Malinois. Terence knew that this breed had some health problems that needed to be fixed. He worked with the breeder for about six months and got the best care possible. The breeder gave birth to a beautiful black female Belgian Malinois named Libby. She weighed only eight pounds at birth but has grown to over one hundred and fifty pounds.
The breeder discovered that the terrier had been in an accident in Italy when the bull terrier bit the leg of an Italian tourist. The leg could not be repaired so the breeder took the beautiful little terrier to an animal clinic in Portland, Maine. The spaniel that was involved in the accident came to live in America with Sandy Wilson. She adopted the terrier and brought her to America.
The breeder and the owner had worked out a diet for the terrier that included canned or dry food.
The breeder also suggested that the Boston Terrier should receive at least twenty-four hours of daily exercise. At first, the terrier seemed to hate life at the animal shelter, but she became used to people and quickly adjusted. She was only twelve weeks old when her owner took her to the vet. The vet found that the terrier, because of her genetic makeup, was basically a good candidate for a purebred Boston terrier and that he would need to have a minimum of three coats of purebred Boston terriers.
The owner also selected a breed that would best suit the temperament of the terrier. The result was a wonderful family pet that inherited the temperaments of the Schnauzer and the fox terrier but with a focus on the “cool” temperament of the Boston terrier. The result was a sweet baby girl that loved to play with her family and friends.
Because she was such a lovely baby, the breeder wanted to include her in her people’s homes as soon as possible and thus the little bambino was listed in the hopes of being adopted. The owner had two other dogs that had large amounts of energy, so she decided on a middle ground. Instead of going with the much larger and louder retriever, she got the much smaller Schnauzer. Although the small mountain dog still has plenty of energy, it seems to be a better match for the lady.
Once she had the female and the male came into the picture, the rescue group knew they had found a match.
They had already chosen a rescue group that handled all different types of animals, not just terriers. The staff has a very strong commitment to safety and welfare, and all of the animals are treated accordingly. All of the Boston terrier rescue groups have a written policy regarding the safety of each dog and there are guidelines regarding the type of animal a potential adopter should choose. These policies are available online for anyone interested to find them.
The little bambino would probably do okay in a home with a family with children, but not a household with only adults. A household with pets is more likely to have an unplanned attack by a wild animal, which would be much more difficult to deal with if your Boston terrier is not included in your family. There are many great reasons why the Boston terrier is such a great pet for families to include in their homes, however, it is important to note that not all Boston terriers are good candidates for adoption. The American Kennel Club does not accept teacups as potential pets due to their size, but they are a terrific addition to any home. If you are looking for a great little dog with lots of personalities, then the teacup Boston terrier may be just what you are looking for.
