Roger is a handsome Boston Terrier who just turned 2. He is a high energy dog that needs a quiet home with no children, no cats, a fenced yard is a must, and patient, confident and dog savvy person(s), as he has a bite history, trust issues and a general fear of the unknown. Once he comes out of his shell, Roger is a goofy and happy boy who just had a really rough start in life and needs someone who will understand his shortcomings. Roger was born to breeders who felt he wasn't suitable for breeding. He was bounced around from multiple homes, his foster mom's being his 7th (yes, he's moved around 6 times!). Before coming to her, he didn't have much opportunity to learn without being "corrected" with a shock collar or being hit as punishment. Because of poor training, Roger suffers from a lack of trust and must have slow and multiple introductions to anything or anyone new, as he is fearful and can be reactive. According to his current foster Mom, Roger is a sweet soul who desperately wants to be loved, but you will need to gain his trust before he will accept affection. One important thing to remember about a dog like Roger is just because he is ok with observing you, it doesn't mean he wants to be touched or engaged with just yet. He can be very sensitive to the energy his person puts out and feels threatened if handled wrongly. When he first came into the rescue, he was labeled as a "no-touch" dog because he was so reactive to anyone trying to reach out and pet him. However, since coming to his foster mom, he has been learning to trust, gain confidence, and learning to make better decisions in stressful situations. Roger is a classic case of a dog that needs empathy from his humans. With a dog like this, it is more about management, than training. It is imperative to be mindful at all times of what's going on and making sure that he feels safe. Introductions must be done slowly, consistently and done in a controlled environment. He has a tendency to have intense outbursts if he is afraid, but will quickly calm down if removed from the situation. Although he may always be a work in progress, the rewards will be great. In return for guidance and security, he will be a loyal and loving companion that will stick to you like glue and be the best friend you ever had. No children for this boy and a fenced yard is extremely important for him to play, as he is highly active and can run for hours. Another dog is not a must, but he does enjoy having another 4-legged friend to play with. Roger plays nicely with other dogs as long as they have decent social skills. He needs a confident person who can give him the time to continue his growth and who will understand his special needs. Because of his fear issues, more than one meet and greet will need to be scheduled prior to adoption - consideration to the location is important. Roger is currently in foster care in White Plains, NY. Roger's adoption fee is $400.00.

Adoption Fee: $650 * Bonded Pair - Must Stay Together * Fenced Yard * No Other Dogs * No Children Please * No Cats * Strong Leader - Home More Often than Not According to their foster homes... Brooklyn is super sweet, very affectionate and laid back. He loves to run and play and then nap â but who doesnât? He is a perfect mixture of energy and playfulness and affection. He loves to fetch balls; you can usually find Brooklyn with a ball or soft toy in his mouth. When he is done for the day, he has a special trick of wrapping himself in his blanket and going into his bed. Brooklyn is a tiny little boy at 13.5 lbs. and has a sensitive side to his personality; therefore, he doesnât like loud voices and/or a busy environment. Due to his sensitive nature, he can startle and jump easy so no children for this boy. He also has a high prey drive so no small critters (especially cats.) Bronx ha s lots of energy and loves to run and play; but this sweet 12 lb. little guy is also content to curl up in his kennel and nap or sneak into a blanket next to your lap. He is a happy boy! This sweet guy needs time to warm up to people but he has manners and can sit, stay and come and is house-trained. He would do best with continued training, guidance and patience and in return you will get a sweet, loyal companion. Bronxâs sensitivity is mostly based on fear, therefore, he really doesnât like to be around other dogs. He can also be nervous around young children, so no children please. Both dogs would do best in a quiet environment with a yard where they have room to run and play. They still needs to learn manners on leash, so a strong leader who is mostly home with them and who can provide guidance and patience will be required. You will benefit from snuggles, kisses and love!

Beau and Brody may have had a rough start but they are blossoming in foster care! If you are willing to take it slow and build a bond with this pair of Boston Terrier mixes, they will reward you for years to come! Beau (grey face) is approximately 7 years old and his brother Brody is approximately 5. They are still learning that people aren't scary and adjusting to life inside as opposed to an outdoor kennel. Beau loves to play fetch and Brody loves to cuddle on the couch. Both are naturals on the leash and love to go for long walks in the morning. They are shy meeting new people and dogs on walks but they get along fine with calm introductions to older or calm dogs. Children make them nervous so a home with no children under 10 is a must A low traffic home, an avid walker, empty nester or retiree would be a great fit for these boys. They will need time to continue to grow and learn. All they need is the right home and the opportunity to really shine! Beau & Brody are being fostered in Holliston, MA and their adoption fee is $400.00.

Hi! I'm DeeOGee, but most folks call me Dee. I've been through a lot in my 7 short years of life, but despite everything I'm a good guy with a big heart and I just know the perfect forever home is out there waiting for me. So, what's my story? I lived in a couple of homes before winding up with NEBTR and somewhere along the way I injured and lost my eye. My vision is a little diminished, but it doesn't bother me. I'm convinced it adds to my ruggedly handsome good looks. My passions in life? Being outside, playing with toys, and games of chase with my dog friends. I also love to be cuddling under the covers with my people. You will never have a cold day with me by your side! I'll be the first to admit, though, that I've got a few things I need to work on. Don't we all? I'm pretty well-behaved, but sometimes my manners aren't the best - like when I meet other dogs for the first time. I also have anxiety. Thunder and loud noises really make me nervous and, honestly, I've been destructive in the past when left home alone during storms. I need someone who is patient and willing to work with me. I feel best when I'm around others, so if you are home most of the time and have a dog or two to keep me company I know I will thrive. I KNOW my perfect forever home is out there. DeeOGee is being fostered in Bensalem, PA and her adoption fee is $350.00.

* No Children * Fenced Yard Archie is 5 years old, large and handsome. He plays with other dogs but has a bite history. (he is approximately 40lbs) He was adopted from a very elderly couple. One month later in his new home, Archie bit the wife and she required stitches. His new owners dropped Archie off at the Atlantic County shelter in NJ where he was quarantined in solitary confinement for 10 days due to biting. Archie was scheduled to be euthanized when his 10 days were up. NEBTR picked him up before that occurred. He has been with our trainer for several months and for the right person, he is available for adoption. According to our trainer, Archie is generally a sweet soul, suffering from a lack of trust. He is looking for guidance and wants to do the right thing. His body shows signs of neglect and probably as a result, he does have some food guarding issues that need to be understood. He can be very sensitive to physical touch and feels threatened if handled wrongly. However, Archie is currently learning to accept human touch as positive. He is also working on being respectful of his humans around food and learning to "leave it" when told. He is very good with other dogs and has wonderful dog skills. Archie is a classic case of a dog that needs empathy from his humans, and someone who can provide rock solid guidance and goals. The rewards will be great; he is an awesome dog with a gentle soul suffering from a lack of trust of people. In return for guidance, he will be a great companion. No children for this boy and a fenced yard is important for him to play as he is active. He needs a confident person who can give him the time to continue his growth. Since he is currently with our trainer, several visits will need to be scheduled prior to adoption - consideration to location is important. Archie is currently with our trainer in Clinton, CT and his adoption fee is 450.00.
