I had become involved and very close friends to the lady who runs the rescue, Karen. I saw Roxie’s picture on their petfinder sight and fell in love with her crazy asymmetrical looks. Roxie had been in rescue for awhile and needed a forever home. I knew we had to get her and we immediately fell in love with her diva personality as well as her extreme good looks! In 2008 we lost Colby to congestive heart failure. We were heartbroken of course because he was a sweet little gentleman and his death was sudden.
Soon after losing Colby we decided to give another rescue a home. We decided to let Roxie pick her next “brother” so we took her to the rescue kennel and let her mingle with all of the dogs. She and Ernie hit it off immediately and we knew he was the right dog for us. Ernie is extremely sweet and mellow tempered. He loves to play and he’s very gentle. Roxie did an excellent job selecting him.
We have had 5 Boston Terriers since we got married in 1986. We are extremely fond of this intelligent and personable breed. We don’t have kids but these dogs are very much our babies and mean the world to us. We are very proud of both Roxie and Ernie and have enjoyed sharing their beautiful portrait with friends and family."
