  • Beagle, Chihuahua
Bosco is a 25 lb Beagle and Chihuahua mixed breed (we think). He is about 10 years old, found as a stray. He is active and vibrant and his foster mom thinks of him as 10 years young. He is a sturdy dog with truly awesome lower incisors.  Bosco knows how to sit, only comes up on furniture when invited, loves walks and is comfortable in his crate. (In fact, we think he might have been crate trained.) He gets along well with other dogs and takes their cues well. Loves all people and asks for hugs and scratches. No other dog could probably be a nicer, friendly and cuddly dog than Bosco. He is also a barker. Although the amount and intensity has decreased drastically in the short time while in foster care, His barking has been managed by walks, reassurance, when asked to go in his crate and through other means, but he is still a work in progress. He needs a compassionate adopter who will help him become more secure. Bosco relishes being loved. Although fine in a single-human household, his forever home would be great in with more people around, as this means more people to love on him. While in foster care has not been around kids but is a sturdy type who has never shown aggression, so we think he would be ok with school-age kids. Since he seems to have a prey instinct, as he is committed to making sure the back yard will not be infiltrated by bunnies and squirrels. As such, he would probably not be fitting in a household with cats Bosco is neutered and up to date on shots. He is being fostered in Somerville, MA.  His adoption fee is $250.  If you are interested, please go to Alldorescue.org and fill out an adoption application.

Adoption Process

To adopt a dog from us, you must be over the age of 21.  To begin the process, first fill out an adoption application. The foster provider will then set up a telephone interview to determine if you and the dog are a good match for each other. The next step is for you to come and visit the dog at the foster home.  Then we will do a home visit at your residence before finalizing the adoption. The final step is for you to pick up your new dog from the foster home. Ongoing contact will be maintained with you to see how it’s going and offer training suggestions and behavior advice.

The adoption fee

The adoption fee ranges from $250-$500 for most adult dogs (decided on a case-by-case basis). This is to help defray the costs of spaying, neutering, transportation and other medical expenses. All dogs are spayed or neutered, examined by a vet, given medical shots and treated for any medical condition they may have, prior to adoption. Donations above the adoption fee are always welcome!
