Buddy The Boston Terrier Adjusts To A New Life

Buddy The Boston Terrier Adjusts To A New Life

We love rescue Boston Terriers, and we always love to hear about the amazing paths they take to find their forever home. Buddy the Boston Terrier has a unique story, but it ends with a loving forever home and we couldn’t be more happy about it. Thanks for the email, Frete.

“I am anxious for you to meet Buddy, my three year old male Boston Terrier who came to me from a rescue in Wheeling WV almost one year ago ( “gotcha day” I will celebrate on February 15).

Buddy spent his first two years as a stud in a puppy mill in northern Kentucky.  When the breeder died on January 1, 2015, Buddy, his mate, and eight puppies were rescued.  While I adopted Buddy, my niece and her husband adopted one of Buddy’s puppies, Charlie!

I come from a family of Boston lovers.  We had a BT named Frosty as a family bet (adopted in 1965 who died in 1978).  My sister, who bought Buddy for me as a Christmas gift, has two bostons, Henry and Jillian.

Something unique about Buddy’s transition – I am a Catholic priest (notice my matching uniform to Buddy’s) and Buddy lives in the priests’ residence with three of us priests.  In short order Buddy went from stud service and father of many in a breeder farm, to a neutered and microchipped, into a celibate existence with a rather monastic community of brothers.  He seems to have made the shift pretty well.”
