Fester The Boston Terrier Undergoes Successful Surgery For Hypospadias

Fester The Boston Terrier Undergoes Successful Surgery For Hypospadias

On June 17th, we introduced you to Fester the Boston Terrier puppy! His sweet little face captivated us all and we fell in love with the little guy. This wasn’t just a one-time deal, Fester’s brother, Lemmy has also been featured on this site. Fester had a little problem that was diagnosed when he was eight weeks old called Hypospadias. For those unfamiliar, Hypospadias is most common in male Boston Terriers as they have the underlying genetic predisposition. To put it lightly, Hypospadias is a common congenital abnormality which results from inadequate fusion of urethral folds. 

Fester’s mom, who happens to be a veterinarian, originally told us about his arrival at home. “Here is our newest little buddy, Fester. He is 8 weeks old and was born with a condition called Hypospadias (his little fella parts didn’t quite develop correctly). Fortunately, the rest of him is normal and he is otherwise happy and healthy and his Daddy is a Veterinary Surgeon. He loves badgering his brothers, Lemmy (the one who has the nice portrait done by Darren Goldman) and Seamus, as well as doing the ever epic “Monkey Butt Run” around the house.

We are proud to announce that we have an update! “This morning, our little Boston, Fester, underwent surgery to correct his congenital condition, called Hypospadias. (He was featured in an earlier post) He had his plumbing rewired a bit and now looks (although he doesn’t pee) like a boy. He is recovering well and being well pampered and cuddled.”

We are so happy to hear that Fester is past this ordeal and ready to start the rest of his life! Sounds to us like he ended up in the right house.

  1. so happy to hear of his successful surgery. My boy Simon had same problem…
    great repair by his vet and not a bit of problem since. A daily wash “down there” and he is good to go.

  2. Glad to hear that Fester’s surgery went so well. Poot little guy. Lots of TLC wishes being sent his way.

  3. I have a Boston Terrier “Leo” who suffers the same condition. How old does he need to be or weigh before he will have surgery?
