Bubba is a 1 year old Boston Terrier/Pit Bill Terrier mix that weighs about 22lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and on heart worm prevention. "Hi! My name is Bubba Ray! I was found as a stray and the vet thinks I am a young adult, anywhere from 1- 3 years old. I am extremely shy but once I get to know you all bets are off! You won’t be able to keep me off your lap! It takes time for me to warm up to people and trust. It is unclear how I lived the first few years of my life. I love to give kisses and rough house with my humans and foster siblings once I become familiar with them. I love to chew on bones and toys but can get easily distracted. I am small in size and act like a puppy sometimes. I need a somewhat quiet home with respectful humans and dogs. I live with a foster cat currently and I do not mind it. Everywhere my foster mom brings me people are immediately in LOVE with me, they say I am the CUTEST! I go to work with my mom most days at the animal hospital and am getting used to being around other people. I even walk up to them to get treats all by myself now! I do best with a structured schedule so I do not have accidents in the house, which I do sometimes still. I love to eat and am VERY food motivated! I do well in a kennel even though I whine a little in the beginning." If you would like to give Bubba his forever home, please submit an application at southerncrossbtr.com. The adoption fee is $425. He is being fostered in Crown Pointe, IN.

DJ is an 8 year old Boston Terrier that weighs about 21lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and on heart worm prevention. DJ, aka Mr. Snuggles, is one of the sweetest pups. He loves to be with his human and just lay around. He is an older fella so a chill lifestyle would be fine with him. DJ likes to bask in the sun on warm days. He is okay with other dogs as long as they do not intrude on his space. A slow introduction with other pets is a must. He is gentle with my 2 very young grandsons; however, he doesn't like loud screaming play or when people wrestle. It gets him in barking/protection mode.  I believe DJ would do best in a home with older children or a home with a retired person who would have all the time to love on him. DJ is diabetic and takes insulin twice daily. He also has Cushing's. Together, his medication and food costs about $250 a month. DJ is potty trained, but with his diabetes, if you don't watch his signals he will have accidents. He is crate trained. He has a very healthy appetite. He isn't a big player, but he loves to chew on balls, bones, or squeaky toys.  He is a very good boy! If you would like to give DJ his forever home, please submit an application at southerncrossbtr.com. The adoption fee is $250. He is being fostered in Louisville, KY.

Koko is a 1.5 year old Boston Terrier that weighs about 11lbs. She is spayed, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and on heart worm prevention. Koko is very active and in the puppy stage! Koko is a special girl because she has spina bifida, but she doesn’t let that stop her!! She loves to play and aggravate her fur brothers and sisters just like a little sister should. She has an underbite that makes her that much more cute! She likes to have all the attention on her, because she is the baby in the house. Because of her spina bifida diagnosis, she has no control over her bowels or bladder, therefore, she is in a diaper 24/7 unless it’s her pen time where she can go without it 3-4 hours a day. We also take her diaper off for outside playtime with her fur siblings. We nicknamed her "Taz" because when she gets upset, she has no problem letting you know, and it’s the cutest thing because she sounds like the Tazmanian Devil lol. She loves to run and play, but her back legs do give out on occasion. When that happens, we bring her in to rest. We change her diapers about 6-7 times a day. We also manually express her bladder in the morning and at night before she goes to bed to reduce the risk of UTI. The vet can show you how to do this, and it's very easy. She has to be fed dry dog food at all times to keep her bowel movements consistent. She loves cheese when taking her meds :) Koko is perfect in every way. She loves to cuddle and be near you. She loves children. She is absolutely the perfect addition to any family. If you would like to give Koko her forever home, please submit an application at southerncrossbtr.com. The adoption fee is $400. She is being fostered in Bowling Green, KY area.  For a complete listing of all of our available Bostons, or to learn more about SCBTR, please visit our website at www.southerncrossbtr.com.

Thad is a 1 year old Boston Terrier/Boxer(or Border Collie) mix that weighs about 39lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and on heart worm prevention. This cute-as-a-button pup is Thad! He’s a happy guy with lots of energy to burn, and he would love to share his favorite toys with you! He can also show you how nicely he can sit, shake, and down for treats. Thad is young at only a year old; He is very smart, adjusts quickly to routine, and is eager to learn. Can you teach him? Thad is a doll. He is bouncy and always ready to play. He loves to run,play fetch, and explore, so a tall fenced in yard would be great for him. He needs an active, experienced family that can keep up with his energy and attention. Did we mention that Thad is very high energy?! ;) His instinct is to run and jump on you with gusto; It's his way of saying hello when you've been away. His foster family is working with him on jumping up, but a home without small children would work best for him, as his forever family continues to work on his training.  He is house trained and crate trained. He walks well on leash and he enjoys his walks. He is friendly and sweet and also likes giving kisses. Thad will make a wonderful companion, but he will need a family that is ready to take on his high energy and be patient with him. Thad loves everyone he meets, but seems to favor men a little more. Is Thad the love you've been looking for? If you would like to give Thad his forever home, please submit an application at southerncrossbtr.com. The adoption fee is $375 He is being fostered in Nashville, TN.

Toby is an 8 year old Boston Terrier that weighs 28lbs.He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and on heart worm prevention. Toby is currently looking for a foster-to-adopt home with SCBTR! This means that, if approved, you will foster him. SCBTR will pay for all vet care and needs during that time. Once Toby has had time to acclimate, the foster would have the opportunity to adopt him if they felt he was a good fit. If not, they would continue to foster him until SCBTR found a forever home for him.    Toby's owner passed unexpectedly, landing him in rescue. He is grieving his owner and would love a "home" where he can decompress and be loved. Toby would love to be someone's companion. He does have seizures, usually once every 3 months or so, but was never put on any medication for them, so it is possible they could be controlled once he is on medication with the rescue. He does well on leash walks. He can be cautious of new experiences, but is very sweet once he warms up. He enjoys toys and playing fetch. Toby would love a home where he can relax and enjoy his golden years.  If you would like to give Toby his forever home, please submit an application at southerncrossbtr.com. There is no fee to foster Toby, but his adoption fee is $250.  He is currently in Winchester, KY.  For a complete listing of all of our available Bostons, or to learn more about SCBTR, please visit our website at www.southerncrossbtr.com.
