The Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee

News and Special Announcements for Bostonians and their Adopted People



When yellow jackets and other nasty bugs become particularly mean and many Bostonians (as well as Boxers and other short snouted dogs) are often very badly affected by a sting. If your pooche shows bad facial swelling, especially around the muzzle, redness and/or appears to be scratching at or biting at it's feet, you must act very quickly or it could be very, very bad.  

Don't take ANY chances!

Our STRONG advice is to get the dog to the vet ASAP!! You should also ask your vet now about keeping some Benadryl (or the less expensive generic 25 mg caps) handy in the case of this  emergency.

If we see any indication of a yellow jacket sting, e.g., rapidly swelling muzzle and face (like in the pics below), licking feet, etc, we give the dog ONE caplet in a piece of cheese immediately and start watching it carefully, planning a trip to the vet if there's no quick improvement, but you need to be talking to your own vet now.

Hey Donna! Thanks for the facebook info, I sent you a friend request to your old one a while back, but sent you one to the link below.  He's doing great and has been such a joy to our lives!!  


Here's my pinterest board on him that you 


can always access to see our little guy...



















Lucie was a loving and sweet girl.  She had a great love for life; even into her older years.  Lucie loved to eat, play and especially go for a ride in the car.  Lucie is thought of every day by her 


foster family, who waits to see her in Heaven.  Bless your precious soul Lucie, Mama misses you.



I loved having her here, she was a full of life kinda kid. She loved to lounge and play in the yard for hours in the spring sun. 

With a sad heart and tears in my eyes I call out "Wop Wop"! Till I see you at the Bridge, you are loved and missed beyond all measure.

Hi Allie,,,,,Molly is doing just fine she knows were the toy box is and she has her favorite toys, Minnie is teaching her how to play tug
of war, her and Molly tore the tail off the coon then d-stuffed it, they do play very well together, everybody stops at the gates when out
walking their dogs so that Molly can have a smell, she gets on very well with the cat, and likes to sleep in front of the wood stove on the
mat, I was nervous but i think she knows it is hot.

well talk again

Mr. Buster Cobb has been adopted and moved from Atlanta to Jacksonville, FL with his mommy.   He's looking forward to Christmas with his new sister Lilly.




















Vicki said "I wasn't sure if I passed this update onto all of you or not. This is little June Bug that I fostered she is the one that didn't get along with other dogs but yet blended in with my pack 


just fine.   The first time she got  adopted she came  back to me the next day because she didn't care too much for their other dog but it seems from this update she has found her 


perfect furever home."

Hi Joe, Our boy got to go to his new home today. Ed was really pleased with Tyson. They are no the easiest two to get pictures of. They were antsy and it was cold. Tyson Lee said enough of this

 let just get this show on the road and get me in where it is warm. Ed is going to send pictures when Tyson Lee gets settled in. 

I miss my little boy a lot but I am happy he has his own forever home now. Thank you so much for taking him under your wing and giving him the chance he so deserves to have a good life. Enough 

mushy stuff. Have a good night.

 Thanks,   Linda
