Coastal Carolina Boston Terrier Rescue

by Lee Juslin

Turbo came into Coastal Carolina Boston Terrier Rescue (CCBTR) as a puppy with Spina Bifida, a genetic defect.
A woman went to a breeder to buy a Boston Terrier puppy and saw Turbo. The breeder did not want to euthanize him and agreed to give him to the woman along with the female puppy she had purchased. Fortunately for Turbo, this good Samaritan, unlike the breeder, was a responsible person and did the right thing for Turbo. She called CCBTR once she realized she and her husband were not able to care for this little special needs puppy.

The aim for every breed rescue organization is to find that perfect forever home for each dog they rescue and save. And, these all volunteer groups work hard to do just that by actively marketing each dog through their website, on sites like petfinder.com, and through community outreach.
