Boston of the Month

My name is Toots. I am a 7 year old Boston MIX and weigh 26 pounds with a cute little tail that wags a lot. My mom was a purebred Boston. My family was moving and could not take me along. I am being fostered in Dubuque, IA.

I am a very well behaved sweetheart! I even gave my foster mom kisses the first day I met her. I like following her and my foster dad around and love being around them. I also like to go in my kennel for a treat before they leave for work. She tells me what a good boy I am every day. Who says an old dog can’t learn new tricks? I’ve learned to shake paws so far. I am a smart pup and also quickly learning not to bark at people and strange noises as I become more familiar with my new surroundings. I also let you know when I need to go outside to potty by getting your attention and barking.

I do get nervous around thunder and fireworks. I am very good at coming when called and know commands like “no”, “off”, “kennel”, “sit”, “lay down”, “stay”, “potty”, “stop”, “outside”, “down” and “walk”. Don’t let my age fool you. I really love to ride in the car and make my foster parents laugh when I hop into any whatever opening in their vehicles. I’m always ready to go! I love playing ball and running around the yard with my Boston brother. I quiet down quickly after play and enjoy resting and playing with my toys until its time for bed. I also like to help you clean the house by licking the tile floor, the carpet and shower!

I love being petted and brushed too. I’m just a happy and lovable guy! I would do best in a moderate activity family with multiple members and another dog.

Eligible for the Golden Paws Program (adoptors 60 yrs and older adopting a dog 7 yrs and older get $50 off the adoption fee)
