Brutus' life is a fairy tale in the process of being written. He clearly had a rough start. We wish he could talk because we are curious to know the events that led to this wonderful dog ending up in a county shelter with scars and a positive heart worm diagnosis. Despite all of this, Brutus has been a perfect gentleman in his foster home. He is quick to adapt to new situations. For example, when I picked him up from the shelter, he was very nervous and whimpered during the car ride home. But he learned to enjoy them after just a few rides. Now he's the first to hop in the car when we go somewhere! Occasionally something will happen (like a high five during a football game) that will cause him to cower and we get a glimpse into what his previous life must have been like. But his scars - emotional and physical - are healing and he is ready for happily-ever-after! Are you the one that can provide it for him?
Brutus Maximus is believed to be 3 years old and currently weighs 25 pounds. His foster mom reports that he likes to dart out of the door when it is opened so she is working on training him to sit when the door is opened. His adopter will need to continue to work with him on this issue.

Because we have Boston Terriers of all ages, we have a sliding scale for adoption fees generally ranging from $200 to $600 based on the age and health of the dog. Our fees cover vetting costs, shelter fees, fuel for transport, copying and printing of contracts and paperwork, our website presence, food, boarding, behavioral training and additional medical care. While the dog you adopt may not require all of these things, many other dogs in our system do. By adopting from Boston Terrier Rescue of Florida, you are not saving just one life, you are helping to save others as well.
