WE HAVE A WINNER FOR THE PEQUITA RESCUE NAMING CONTEST!
Pequita’s rescue name is now Pequita Spirit!! Congratulations to Pequita and to Jodie Jewett Bell who submitted this name and received a whopping 21 votes. Thank you to all who submitted suggestions. It was so much funny to read them all!

Even better news is that, while the contest was coming to an end, we learned that Pequita Spirit had found her FOREVER HOME with one of the veterinarians at UF. We had no idea that a such a great home would be found for her so fast, and even while she is still recovering from her surgery. Given her new family’s background, we are thrilled to know that she is in such great hands.

We also want to give a huge shout out to the 4th year veterinary student at UF who opened her home to Pequita Spirit as a foster after her surgery. This allowed Pequita to be surrounded by the best care, not only at home but also during her visits to UF while her foster mom was at work there.

We also want to give an enormous thank you to all who donated towards her care. Without your financial support, we are unable to help any of these pups, no matter how dedicated and hardworking our volunteers and fosters are. We also believe in the power of prayer and positive energy and thank all who sent some Pequita Spirit’s way. While it might be a tired clique, it does take a village. In this case, it’s an incredibly supportive and caring Boston Terrier “village”.

What can YOU do to play a part in an amazing rescue story?

UPDATE: We are paying for a few extra days of boarding for Bailey with the hopes that we can still find her a permanent home. Along with the incident reported below with the current owner (Bailey went after another dog while both on leash), a prior owner contacted us about aggression towards a senior Boston and a Boston puppy in her home approximately 4 years ago. This information, in conjunction with what happened with the current owner, is why we are hoping for a home without other dogs.
--------------
URGENT Bailey needs a home TODAY!! If you are serious about fostering to adopt and don't have other dogs, please call Clarissa @ 518-965-4544.

We cannot accept her into our rescue unless we know that we have a home for her to go to. Currently, all of our foster homes that would be appropriate for her are full. We are looking for someone who is willing to foster her for 2 weeks and then adopt her. Bailey's last day in boarding is today.

This cutie is 6 years old and weighs 22 pounds. Her current mom has had her for 3 years and recently, Bailey started a fight with another dog in their Community while both were on a leash. Her Community had given the owner until 6/14/17 to find a new home for Bailey. When that day came and went without a solution, the owner had no choice but to put Bailey in boarding while we continued to seek out a home for her.

According to her owner, Bailey is very active, playful, affectionate, friendly, independent, protective, and house-trained. She likes to chase after balls, play with rope toys and to run around.

Unfortunately, Bailey has previously lost an eye but it does not require any care. She was prescribed eye drops for the other eye but the vet has determined that the drops are no longer necessary.

Bailey has not lived with children or cats, so we don’t know how she would do in a home with them. Because of the incident with the other dog in their community, she needs to be in a home without other dogs.

If you think you can help Bailey find a place to land and are SERIOUS about it, please let us know. She needs to be moved ASAP. Please do not comment here that you are interested in her if you are not prepared to follow through. This only hurt Bailey's chances of being saved by making others think a solution has been found.

Wish i could. I have two dogs and four cats. She will get a great home. Sharing.

I have a 11yr yr old Boston female. Is it all dogs she fights with?

There are a few recent HV applicants that I approved who would like her. Mary Ellen Heidrich Dehlinger can u and I help here?

Due to the fact we have another dog and cats in our home, my husband and I cannot foster Bailey, but we would be happy to pay for a few more days of boarding if you cannot find a foster today. Please let us know if we can help.

I wish I could take but sharing

Terry Johnson

Poor soul, I hope someone can take her.

Stuff like this are why everyone likes facebook

I would foster her, but I have 2 male bostons.

Praying. St. Francis help her

I would love to adopt Bailey, but unfortunately I already have a Boston at home so she may not do well with him. Sharing this post, though

Shared wish I can:-( I have two bostons 🐾🐶🙏🏻 sharing

Did someone adopt?

I wish i was closer...id take her...shes realy cute

😢 I have three girls already. 🙏🏼 praying she gets a home today. Are you sure she can't be with others dogs?

Sandy Davies Annie Davies

Is this her only infraction? Leash aggression is a totally different behavior. She may not have started that fight at all. She needs a chance to redeem herself with a SKILLED person

We would take her ,but as you know I have five other dogs and our little Gino Bambino is quite dominant!😢
