Tyler is our much-loved, 11-year-old rescued Boston Terrier. Badly neglected by a breeder because of eye probs and because he was not up to breed standards, he was kept in a dark garage while it was "decided" what to do with him. He was rescued by the breeder's vet and turned over to Boston Terrier Rescue, from whom we adopted him. Boston Rescue renamed him Tyler, as the breeder had referred to him only by his eye condition. . .
We adopted Tyler when he was eight months old — frightened of men, terrified of the dark and completely untrained. Quick to learn, Tyler adapted beautifully to our active family and grew into a ball-obsessed, pool-obsessed, happy fellow! Tyler's eye probs continued, however; he almost died when he lost his first eye to a staph infection at about seven years old. Our struggle to save his remaining eye was making him even more sick and miserable than the sick eye itself, but putting him down just because he would be blind (contrary to vet advice) was not an option. We chose to remove his remaining eye was when he was nine years old.
