Meet Catfish!  He is a very handsome 7 year old Boston Terrier with a large athletic build.  Catfish weighs in at about 30lbs - all muscle & kisses! His favorite pastime - outside of sitting with you on the sofa -  is to PLAY BALL!  He will literally play to exhaustion.  He is so fond of his ball that he carries it around in the house with him - never letting it completely out of his sight! Catfish is a big happy, healthy fella, altered, up to date on all shots and on heartworm and flea preventative.
Catfish is a summa cum laude graduate of obedience school and is one of the best behaved dogs I have ever fostered!  He knows many commands and is completely housetrained and crate trained.  He is such a good boy, that he has not had much crate experience before coming into rescue - and he's not too fond of it!  Mr. Indepedence likes roam of the house!  But he is a great boy and is quite trustwworthy on his own.

Catfish has had some very unfortunate experiences with other dogs in his past, most recently being repeatedly attacked by a German Shepard.  This experience has left Catfish understandly skitish around new dogs. Once he knows a dog is not going to hurt him, he relaxes and does just fine.  He does not understand wild Boston Terrier doggie-play, so is not suited for a home with a young playful dog.  He would do best in a calm home with either older, or stable temperment dogs.  He would also be fine as an only dog. His ideal owner would be someone who understands his fear issues and makes Catfish's safety and comfort their number one prioirty.  Because of his love to playing ball he will only be considered for a home with a fenced in yard. Catfish is fine with cats.
This sweet boy will make the right person, or family, a great companion dog!  If you are the right match for Catfish and can open your heart and home to this sweet boy, please fill out an online adoption application.
