Lexi the Happy Boston

Subscribe in a reader

I had the privilege of meeting Lexi the Boston Terrier with her owner and rescuer Wendy. Lexi is a 10 year old, who was rescued by Wendy almost 4 years ago.

Lexi the Boston

Wendy connected with Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue through a friend who knew about the rescue. Lexi was found as a stray, and then “shelter pulled”. Midwest works with animal control agencies to place Boston’s in the Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue community.

Midwest is different from rescue’s like The League for Animal Welfare and SPCA Cincinnati because all dogs are kept in foster homes until they are adopted. The foster homes are the personal homes of volunteers for the rescue. It’s a great way to help Boston’s get healthy and adoptable.

Lexi is tons of fun, with endless energy. “I can’t express to you what a great dog Lexi is. When I first got Lexi you could tell something wrong, but she was a happy dog. She had problems socializing at first, but that only took about 4 weeks”, Wendy said. “Now Lexi is everyone’s favorite. When my nieces come and stay over, Lexi always sleeps with them.”

Fun Lovin' Lexi

Not only did Wendy adopt through Midwest, she has become a volunteer. She helps with processing adoption applications, and has helped place Boston’s with friends.

Lexi is the ultimate success story. After being found as a stray, she is passing on her new found happiness to others. Lexi is a Paw Pal with VITAS Hospice’s Paw Pal Program. Wendy (who works for VITAS Hospice) takes Lexi into hospice centers to play with hospice patients. “All of the patients love Lexi because she’s so well behaved and loves to be petted,” Wendy said. For more information on becoming a Paw Pal please contact Jill Grissom 513. 742.6310

What a Doggy Day!

On Sunday May 16th we hosted our second pet adoption day. The Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue, Ohio Pug Rescue, The League for Animal Welfare were on hand. Carolyn Evans, The PhoDOGrapher, was also on site to take pictures of all the pups.

The first to arrive was The League for Animal Welfare. Rebecca Porter, the event coordinator,  told me about The League’s bus, but I didn’t fully understand how cool this thing is!

This amazing bus was provided 100% paid for by an independent donor.

Shortly thereafter, The Ohio Pug Rescue and Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue arrived to get their booths set up and ready to go!

Let the Games Begin!

Throughout the day, the rescues performed dog washes as well. There’s nothing like seeing a pup getting a bath, and feeling that water for the first time! Check it out!


During the event each rescue and The Phodographer recorded messages about their time at Doggy Days.  Check them out at our YouTube Channel

We had a lot of fun! A big thank you goes out to Linda Stout of Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue, Rebecca Porter and John Doughty of The League for Animal Welfare and to Teresa Livesay and Jeff Devitt of Ohio Pug Rescue.

Do you know of a rescue who would like to participate in our next event? The more the merrier! Please contact me so we can get as many pups as possible placed in homes!

Hope you’re having a great week, and until next time I’m Andrew Shipp ^AS of Busam Automotive

A Waggin’ Good Time!

Puppy Dogs + Hot Dogs = Lots of fun! Yesterday was our pet adoption day: Doggy Days at Busam Subaru. We had such a great time and a great turnout.

Bark Bark --- Woof Woof (Translation = Doggy Days is Fun!)

Our Subaru showroom was packed with puppies and people. Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue, Ohio Pug Rescue and Sheltered Paws Rescue were out in force with some awesome looking dogs… and one duck!

A duck you say?! Yeah, this is a really great story. A baby duck was lost from her mama and family and had wondered up to our lot. In a moment straight out of the movies, one of the volunteers from Sheltered Paws Rescue took the baby duckling down to the pond and was able to reunite it with his family! It was so cool!

The day was also highlighted by a recently rescued St. Bernard named Barney! This dog was awesome. He was a gentle giant, especially with all the Pugs and Boston Terriers running around! We even got to give him a bath!

Barney is lookin' good!

The doggy wash was a lot of fun. We were able to get all the puppies nice and clean! At one point we had at least 30 dogs on the facility sniffing each other and making new friends.

Thanks so much to all the participating rescues for bringing all the animals out!

We had so much fun!

Doggy Days at Busam Subaru

Are you an animal lover? Are you looking for a new car? Well, Busam Subaru has just the event for you! Doggy Days at Busam is being held on Sunday April 25th. 4 local dog rescues will be on hand at our Subaru dealership to facilitate adoptions and answer questions. The event will last from 11 am – 3 pm (or whenever you stop playing with all the puppies!)

The 4 rescues on hand will be: The Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue, The Sheltered Paws Rescue, The Harlequin Haven Great Dane Rescue, and The Ohio Pug Rescue. Please visit their sites, these are 4 awesome organizations that are doing their part to help! The most awesome part about these local organizations is that they are 100% volunteer based!

To help offset costs, so these volunteers can continue to help, we will be donating $200 for each registered car sold or leased in conjunction with the event. The total money raised will be evenly distributed among the 4 rescue shelters.

Lots of  fun activities will be going on as well! A raffle with loads of great prizes will be held. A “doggy wash” will also be available for donations to the rescue centers. Attendees will get the opportunity to learn proper dog automotive safety from The Anderson Family Township Pet Center. Snacks and refreshments will be available for all in attendance.

We are really excited about this event and we hope you’ll be able to come out and join us! Please pass the word along so we can help these great local organizations!

Do you know of any other local dog rescues? Let us know, we are planning another pet adoption day next month!
