We are a small, dedicated group of Boston Terrier-loving volunteers based in North Texas.  While we are currently awaiting our 501(c)3 status, we're busy rescuing, training, transporting, vetting, coordinating and fundraising.  All for the love of our chosen breed, the Boston Terrier.
All Bostons that come into ABTR are fully vetted, heartworm checked, spayed/neutered and **temperament tested to ensure a good fit into a new home.  We never turn away a Boston in need.
ALL Bostons deserve a loving home.  We accept all Bostons, regardless of age or health.   
(We will not accept dogs that exhibit human aggression.)
Please note that the adoption process begins with an adoption application.  Incomplete apps will not be considered.  
We are not a shelter and do not have visiting hours.  All our Bostons are fostered in loving private homes.
All adoptions require an adoption fee. 
Payment options include cash, money order, cashiers check or paypal.
ABTR is a non-profit rescue organization.  All fees and donations are applied to Boston Terriers in need.

**We DO NOT use Sue Sternberg's Assess-A-Pet or any other extreme temperament tests on our dogs. 
If we used her methods to test Boston Terriers, who are usually highly stressed in a shelter environment, most of the Bostons that we have been able to save and place would be dead dogs instead of beloved dogs in new homes. That is where rescue comes into the equation and gets them out of that environment and into a home and then see how they unwind over a few days to see their true temperment while interacting with a family and not in a pandemonium of loud noises, rough handling, strange smells, and fear. So many of my babies would have been killed for being too timid, too food aggressive from starvation, too fear aggressive, too hyperactive, too something and they would not have reached their new homes and be the beloved dogs they are today so we DO NOT USE NOR DO WE RECOMMEND THIS METHOD OF TESTING!
