Available For AdoptionHershey....$500

*No Children Under 10

If you are active, into agility and/or looking for an active dog for your active lifestyle; you need to meet Hersey! He is a 4 yo neutered 35lb. Boston Terrier mix who was reluctantly surrendered to rescue by a loving family due to severe allergies with one of the children. Because of a biting incident during a vet visit, he was moved to our trainer where he is also learning to control his impulses and is gaining some much needed leash manners.

Hershey is a fun loving, high energy boy who seems to get along well with other dogs that can hold their own. He loves to play outside and chase balls. Because he has quite a high prey drive, he can easily become overstimulated so care should be taken when engaging him in play; and it is clear to see that in this state he could nip and jump. For this reason we do not recommend a home with children. His adopters would be confident people with experience or willing to learn. He’s a good boy in the crate and loves food and is very affectionate. Hershey will make a great companion for someone who is willing to continue to work with him.

Hersey is also an intelligent, inquisitive working dog or agility dog in a Boston terrier mix; his owner must be able to manage and orchestrate his play, from beginning to end.( the person needs to be able to understand when the dog gets to excited how to control that behavior). Someone who has had a working dog ( Border Collie or similar) and understands working dog behavior would be the best fit. Seriously, this is an awesome dog, extremely good looking and just needs the right owner. He really needs his forever home.

A fenced in yard is important for this boy who loves to play. If you are looking for a great dog, are willing to put in the time and energy to him, you will have a great companion.Since he is currently with our trainer, several visits will need to be scheduled prior to adoption – consideration to location is important.

Hershey is currently being fostered in Clinton, CT
