A Male Boston Terrier presently Adopted

Dogs can definitely enhance a child’s life.  However, children—especially those under 8 – have quick movements, high-pitched voices, and tend to run rather than walk which often result in a dog chasing, nipping at heels, or jumping on a child.  Then there is the hugging – a gesture of affection in the child’s mind but not so for the dog being hugged; the dog will often react with a growl or snap.  Not only must your dog be educated on how to act around children, so must your child.  When a dog growls or snaps, he wants to put distance between himself and the child.  Understanding a dog’s dialect doesn’t come easily to very young children so they must be taught the “do’s and don’ts” of behaviour around pets.  For anyone thinking of adopting, there are amazing websites, such as https://doggonesafe.com/Be-A-Tree or take a few minutes watch a video for your child’s specific age group -- http://stopthe77.com/ 

Meet Bobby, a handsome Boston Terrier, who was transferred to Animatch from Animal Control.  He was surrendered to them because his family no longer felt safe with him around children.  Animatch is not sure of all the details but he did bite a child who disturbed him while he was on his bed.  In general, serious aggression is not tolerated; however, after weeks of working with Bobby and sending him to obedience training classes and Meet & Greets, we feel that he deserves this chance at another home.  Bobby gets along great with other dogs, has never met a stranger, and enjoys playing and going for long walks.  Because of his history, we are looking for an adult home.  Bobby is a smart dog and would enjoy continuing his obedience training – it’s never too late.  If you feel that you can give Bobby his second chance at a happy life, please fill in the Adoption Form.
