Kierra came into Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue from West Virginia. While her complete history is unknown, it's become painfully obvious that she didn't lead a good life prior to coming into rescue.

From what little info there is, Kierra lived in a home where she was allowed to roam free, unspayed, and not given regular medical care, like yearly heart worm tests and preventative. She was attacked more than once, by other dogs, while she was out roaming the neighborhood, which let her to be dog aggressive. She had also had at least one litter and was kept in a garage with a doggy door when she had her puppies. This poor dog had to endure a wild animal coming in and killing her puppies.

When MWBTR was first notified about her, she couldn't walk and seemed to have severe neurological issues, fortunately for Kierra, all that was needed was crate rest and pain medication, and she slowly began to walk again.

After she started feeling better, she was taken in to get the normal vetting that MWBTR does for every foster dog. On top of everything Kierra had gone through, she came up heart worm positive.

Kierra has undergone months of heart worm treatment and had her last treatment a few days ago. She has undergone an amazing transformation in her foster home. She is among several other dogs and has learned some much needed manners. She loves people and would make a wonderful addition to someone's home.

If you'd like to donate to Kierra's care, apply to adopt her, or apply to foster another Boston Terrier in need, please visit http://www.midwestbtrescue.org. All four states are always in need.
