Homer is ready to be adopted.
Am I quite ready for him to BE adopted? No.
Homer is being fostered through the Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee – Florida Division. If you’re interested, or know someone who might be, please fill out an application on their web site.
So what kind of home is Homer looking for?
Homer seems to do fine with both cats and dogs, although he requires an introductory period. He does not like being sneaked up on (Ron the cat, I’m looking at you).
Homer loves people. He does not bark when the doorbell rings, and is super-wiggly when encountering new visitors. Worst. Guard dog. Ever. He’s great with children of all ages.
Homer is crate-trained. When he’s not in his crate, he needs to be taken out every 2-3 hours.
Homer’s favorite thing is food. He loves his regular dry food, and especially loves treats. We’re currently training him to get into his crate when asked. He already knows “Sit” and “Speak.”
Homer is up to date on all his vaccinations and is heartworm negative. He doesn’t take any medications. He weighs about 25 lbs. AND I LOVE HIM.
Because he’s blind, he’s not a dog you can take on long walks. The traffic noises kind of freak him out. Bostons are indoor dogs, and Homer is no exception. However, if you have a fenced, hazard-free yard, he’d be fine going out for bathroom breaks by himself. He loves to roll in the grass when the sun is shining.
Please pass this along to anyone who is looking for a sweet, laid-back dog to welcome into their home. Thanks!
