We drove over 2200 miles round-trip from Portsmouth, NH to Shoals, Indiana to pick up our beautiful new Boston Terrier, Suzie.
We lost our beloved Boston, Rocky on Labor Day, 2016, early in his 12th year. He had physical problems throughout his life and it took effort. love and resources to get him through a decent life.
We did our research and decided to opt for the best breeder in the country, Sherri Brett. We spent a couple of hours on her farm in Indiana and finally had to tear ourselves away from her loving family of Bostons . Suzie is a handful as a puppy, but we have her in puppy training now and she is learning as are we. She is breath-takingly beautiful , healthy, smart and lovable. She weighed 5.7 pounds when we adopted her and is slightly over ten pounds now. She has yet to see an object that doesn't go into her mouth. We are stopped all the time by strangers who are taken by her beautiful face and markings, the hallmark of her championship blood-line. We are delighted with our new "daughter" and will only deal with Sherri for our future Boston Terriers.

Thank you, Sherri, for my beautiful little girls, Matani and Gili, (Piper & Nick’s litter, born 9/17/2017). I have had Bostons constantly in my home for 45 years! Every single one has been smart, special, and loved. But not until I discovered Sherri Brett’s Painted Bostons have I encountered a breeder so professional, so loving, so devoted, so approachable and available. Even before I contacted Sherri for the first time, I felt part of the Painted family for over a year just by following the website and Facebook, anticipating every birth and following their progress and adoption. Such beautiful fur-babies, both large and small!
My husband and I live in Israel, but I visit my family in my home state of Indiana. And then we thought....is it possible to bring a puppy home after my holiday visit? After researching all the new Israeli import regulations with the assistance of Sherri’s vet, Dr. John Royal, Sherri offered one of Piper’s little girls who would be old enough to travel. And, then there were 2..... if I’m bringing back one, why not two? Matani and her litter sister “Laney” had become inseparable best friends. Instead of keeping her, as she originally planned, Sherri offered her as my second puppy. We couldn’t be more thrilled. They are so beautiful in every way—and still the best of friends.
It was wonderful to finally meet you, Sherri, visit the farm, and meet so many beautiful Bostons. Thank you for the updates, pictures and videos so we could watch them grow. Thank you for answering my countless emails. While we welcome our new little Israelis to our home in Jerusalem—we’ll always remember their first home with Sherri—Brett’s Painted Bostons of Shoal, Indiana.

As I sit here holding my Boston Terrier puppy, I am indeed grateful for all the time, energy and love that has gone into making this puppy confident, comfortable and easily adaptable to a new home.
Sherri has been conscientious, helpful and well aware of matching puppy with its new family.
Her website is a vast array of information to assist new puppy families in understanding details that are often overlooked or neglected.
She has always been available and her care and love for her puppies is foremost in all she does.
Yes, I would purchase another puppy from her again.
First off I don't know how Sherri does it. From the first contact to the actual pick up there was a continual stream of communication. I knew our beloved Stella before I even held her! When we picked her up Sherri took the time to cover everything, she left nothing out, it was very relaxed. If you are looking to adopt a quality Boston look no further. We are truly blessed to have Stella join us and we thank Sherri for that!!
Jim & Peggy Warner
Sherri, Thanks so much for your hospitality to us this past weekend when we came to pick up Lexie. She has been so well socialized and nourished at Brett's Painted Boston's. We spent the first night in a French Lick motel and were able to spend some quality time bonding with her. She has made a smooth integration into our home and family here in southern Ohio. We had the opportunity to be welcomed into your home and to see your nursery and the play areas for your dogs as well as being able to see Lexie's Mom and Dad. Thanks again for your dedication. I am also impressed with the achievements of you and your Show dogs. Thanks to Emmy and Buzz for your sweet daughter.

I was initially very nervous and unsure about adopting from a breeder over the Internet. It's so hard to tell if someone is genuinely honest from just their website alone. I can honestly say my experience with Sherri at BPB was amazing! Sherri is very professional and honest. I had a never ending list of questions and concerns and Sherri was happy to answer them all. I'm glad I had the chance to visit her home to pick up Phia. Being able to see the parents of my baby and getting to know Sherri in person really reassured me of her high standards for breeding and health. I am very impressed with how perfect Phia fits in with my family. She has an outstanding personality and beautiful brindle coloring. Its very obvious the passion Sherri has for breeding and it shows in her puppies. You can tell she spends a lot of time working with the puppies from birth on. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and plan on adopting another family member from her in the future!
Wow! We adopted Jamie about a month ago. What a wonderful pup she is. Everyone comments what a beautiful Boston she is. She's got a great personality too. Maybe a bit on the feisty side now. Yet, that's normal for a pup. We when we arrived at Sherri's, we found Sherri surrounded by Boston puppies. I have never seen so many Bostons in one place. Sherri has a wonderful place, and you can tell she takes her breedings seriously. We had a great time talking to Sherri while we got to know Jamie. If we ever want another Boston Terrier, Sherri is who we will contact. I highly recommend Sherri if you are looking for a beautiful Boston Terrier puppy. Thanks Sherri!
I just read a very disturbing post on Facebook about a Boston Terrier breeder that prompted me to write a review about a wonderful breeder ~ Sherri Brett! Thanks for taking care of Edna for the first 8 weeks of her life. I know that she was well cared for and loved. Sherri was prompt to answer all of our questions and involved us in Edna's life through weekly pictures. I was in love with our puppy before I even met her! Thank you Sherri for being a reputable breeder that cares about the Boston Terrier breed and a caring breeder that wants to stay connected with each puppy via Facebook.
Tamie, Chris, and Burke Herr
We were so sad to lose our last Boston "Willie" in May 2014 but decided we could not live without a Boston so our search began. We knew what we wanted and pleased beyond description to have discovered Brett's Painted Bostons! This is our 4th Boston and were aware of some of the congenital problems they could have. Sherri has extremely high standards and requirements for her breedings. Her knowledge of this breed is fantastic and she is dedicated about caring for each of her babies until they are ready for their adoptive parents. We were tickled to receive descriptive summaries of their height and weight as the morphed from newborns to 7.5 week pups! Just wait until the videos start coming! We couldn't be more pleased! We traveled 978 miles to pick up "Cato" and we would do it again. We are so happy to have him in our family! He has truly melted our hearts....Thank you Sherri!

The Best Adoption Process from Brett's Painted Bostons
Hello Sherri, We did 12 weeks of puppy training with Burley (Emmy x Buzz) and he did terrific- has his AKC Star Puppy medal. He has brought so much fun, laughter, and joy to our family. Leah and Evan are great with him and Leah taught him a few tricks all on her own. He just got neutered last week and everything went well. The vet has a Boston too that he rescued and she has so many problems. Kind of like our old Boston, Eli. Our vet is so impressed with Burley and how great his health is and how well he behaves in the office. A true testament to his great parents and breeder! Burley is keeping us very busy. He loves to be outside. He is amazed by the fall leaves blowing around and loves to lay on our deck. We are so thankful to you and for him. You are a wonderful person and breeder and he is a wonderful puppy! Thanks again! We will keep in touch.
Kelly F & family
We adopted our Boston Terrier (Anna) from Brett's Painted three months ago and couldn't be happier. Anna is beautiful with a playful, loving personality. She is perfect with our two young children, easy to train, and a delightful addition to our family. We're very happy we adopted from Sherri. You want a breeder that cares about your dog as much as you do, is knowledgeable, experienced, and available when you have questions or concerns. Because this was our first dog and have young children, we were very careful in selecting our breed and looked at a lot of different breeders. We definitely made the right choice.
I couldn't be happier! 10 days ago I picked up my FurBoy Willie. I was greeted by the most wonderful lady Sherri holding an adorable little bundle, my FurBoy Willie. It was one of the most heart warming moments of my life. From the first contact with Sherri things were an adventure I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to adopt a Boston. I felt as if I already knew Willie before he was born. Sherri sent updates, pictures, videos and was more then happy to answer questions. Willie is perfect, he is healthy, chubby, he even has a toy he still carries around the house. Because of all the attention he received before I brought him home, he adjusted well. I couldn't be happier, I not only have an addition to my family I also gained a friend in Sherri and a dependable person I can turn to if I need any questions answered regarding my FurBoy!! I highly recommend this breeder, she has the most beautiful Bostons....my FurBoy is amazing!!! Ivan, my 10 year old Boston agrees!!
I couldn't be happier <3
When we decided that a Boston Terrier was the best breed for our family, I decided to do some research on which breeder to use. As I was doing my research, I came along Sherri's website . I was impressed with all of the information she had to offer, how thorough her website was and her ethics when it came to breeding. I knew she was the breeder for me, but we live in Texas, so I was hoping to find someone closer. I emailed her to find out if she knew of anyone in my area and she responded to let me know that she didn't. I started to look at some sites on the internet for breeders nearer to me and I wasn't impressed with their websites. Something just kept bringing me back to Sherri. After corresponding more with her, I decided that no matter how far away she lived, she was the one we wanted to adopt our fur baby from. I flew to Indiana on Friday to get my little guy and fell even more in love with him than I already was. Sherri is the best of the best!
Shannon L. and family
Our entire experience with Sherri has been a true blessing for our family! Never did I think, I would find a breeder who put their heart into their pups the way Sherri does. The love, care, and dedication she puts into her fur-babies is apparent in every aspect. I cannot express how much I appreciate the rural family-centered environment Sherrie provides for her pups. Traveling to pick up our puppy was not an option for us; instead, Sherri graciously made the long trip to us. After a lot of driving and 2 flights, Sherri arrived at our local airport with puppy in hand! It?s been a little over a week since that day and we continue to be marveled every time we look at our sweet girl. Simply put, without Sherri our family would not be complete. For this, we will be forever grateful to Sherri and Painted-S Bostons!
Hope R and family
A True Blessing!
Being first time pet owners with Max, or as my four year old son says, " Max Comet Negrete" Comet being his birth name given by Sherri. We couldn't be more satisfied with not only our pup but the great experience Sherri allowed us to have. Searching for a trusted and honest breeder doesn't come easy. Sherri was not only reassuring but extremely informative and was ALWAYS available with quick email and text messages. She even took the time to send pictures and video, that meant everything. I have to confess I was a bit skeptical proceeding with the deposit, but I did my homework and found Sherri on Facebook (a bit ashamed about that :) but she was real. Not a SCAM! Max is going to be 5 months come May 1st and we just love that little guy!! He's beautiful. We can't thank you enough. You put a lot of hard work into what you do and it shows. You made a GREAT choice by allowing Max into our home. We are forever grateful. Sherri you rock!
Ivon, Jose & Jacob
Adore my Max!
Adopting our Samson from Sherri has been an incredible experience. Sherri is professional, friendly, responsive, organized, and most importantly loves her fur family. She is a breeder with the highest regard and respect for her dogs and for the breed. I fully expect to adopt another fur baby from Sherri in the future and would highly recommend her. Thank you Sherri!!

We fell in love with these puppies and the way they were being raised and cared for at Sherri's home. Throughout this whole process we have been constantly updated and provided with pictures and special tips. Sherri loves what she does and when the time comes, let’s go of a part of her heart each time a puppy is taken home to his new place. We would recommend this special breeder with certainty that each puppy will be the best and placed with a loving family Each one has been given a wonderful start on life. Thank you Sherri

Working with Sheri was amazing! Her passion and dedication for Boston Terrier's shows the moment you contact her. We received our sweet boy, Rex, about a month ago. We were worried about getting a puppy, but Sheri answered every question we had quickly. Rex has become an amazing member of our family. We were that couple that got newborn pictures made- with our puppy! He is beyond perfect and I couldn't imagine life without him! Rex was not a perfect addition to our family- he made us a family. Thank you Sheri so much for helping us find our first baby! And yes, he has already got his tux for the wedding.
Ashley & Randy Schuette
We had an amazing experience working with Sherri. She took the time to answer all our questions and really got to know our puppy. Our Boston Muggsy is a great dog, she brings a lot of joy to our home and has a great personality. Muggsy gets along great with other dogs, all people and she loves kids. Thank you Sherri!
Dan and Trish Gleason
Spike is doing great at 7 years old. He is not just part of the family, he pretty much runs things around here. And we thank you for Spike!
Sherri was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with thru the puppy purchasing process. She was readily available and gave great feedback with timely responses each time. I would highly recommend Sherri as a breeder as she is very on top of her game and puts her own personal touch on each puppy she sells! Izzy came home and you could tell she was very well socialized and friendly from day one. I have no doubt that it was influenced greatly by how Sherri raises her puppies with such love and hard work.
I reached out to Sherri after I lost my Boston Terrier...he fell into our lives expectantly and the whole family fell in love with Bostons. I did a lot of research looking for reputable breeders, and Sherri's name kept coming up over and over again. Sherri could not have been more kind, more helpful, or more responsive. She puts her heart and soul into these puppies. The whole puppy adoption process was so smooth; she was so organized.... she really made it easy for us. Zeke, our puppy, is absolutely amazing in every way. We absolutely adore him. What a great experience!!! Thank you Sherri! I am forever grateful to you!!
In January of 2016, we decided to get a puppy. I looked for breeders and once I found and contacted Sherri and she responded right back, I knew we had found the one. Even though our pup Arthur wasn't born until Memorial Day, Sherri kept us in the family by updating us on other litters, updates and our place in line, which made our wait so much better. When we got Arthur in August, the vet commented on how well the medical records were kept and how handsome Arthur was. Ever since, he's been the best, happiest, sweetest, silliest puppy! He has slept through the night since we got him (only barking in the a.m. to tell us he's hungry!) and is so well-socialized and behaved. We love him so much and I don't think we could have had as great experience anywhere else. I recommend Sherri with all my heart. Thank you for everything!!
Couldn't Have Had a Better Experience!
From the moment we reached out to Sheri, she was responsive, friendly, and helpful. Each week we would get pictures of our baby boy, and the communication was open throughout the adoption process and afterwards. Our puppy has been such a wonderful experience, we are very proud parents and enjoy our Boston, "Dexter", so much! His size and temperament is great, and we get compliments on him everywhere we go. He's one handsome puppy! Thank you, Sheri! Dexter is a gift!
Jodi & Brad Isaacson
Love our Boston!!!
After deciding on what breed I wanted, I laboriously searched dozens of breeders/ websites, until arriving on Sherri's. After communicating a few times with Sherri, I knew I wanted to adopt from her. Why? 1) She was in a commutable distance 2) She had an updated website 3) She seemed organized and was very responsive to my communication 4) She seemed absolutely passionate about breeding 5) She openly offered her knowledge to me and was very thorough with any questions I had 6) Her puppies seemed well cared for, loved, socialized, and medically checked Now having gone through the adoption, I can say without any hesitation or doubt, that I am extremely happy Sherri allowed me to adopt a wonderful, happy, and healthy puppy, Aria. Even after the adoption, Sherri continues to ask about Aria and is very helpful and patient with any questions I have. If you have any concerns about where to adopt, I can tell you, you needn't have any with Sherri.
If you are looking for a great breeder, look no further
Having clients who were getting their first dog in 41 years should have terrified any reputable breeder, but Sherri Brett seemed to enjoy the challenge of educating us and sharing her enthusiasm for the Boston Terrier breed. She is extremely caring and gives loads of loving, personal attention to each one of her puppies. We got to visit her farm 3 times during the adoption process so we saw first-hand how much work, money and attention goes into her breeding and caring for our pups. Sheri sent us pictures and videos of Phoebe and her litter mates more than once a week, and she patiently, thoroughly and promptly responded to every dumb question we threw at her! The office staff of the Vet she uses told me that they love her because she is so prepared and organized. In summary, Sherri has been terrific, and we can't imagine dealing with a better, more devoted breeder. Thank you, Sheri, for such a comfortable experience. 9/2012

Completely smitten by Phoebe!
If you're interested in this breed, you should look no further. Sherri in my opinion is the epitome of what an excellent breeder is! She has been fantastic to work with and we have enjoyed the whole experience. Her Boston's are the best looking that I've seen, and I have searched many breeders. I appreciate the complete dedication she gives these animals and her customers. Not to mention the health testing and other information available on her fantastic website. This is our third Boston Terrier. We named our new baby girl "Dottie" because of the cutest little black dot on the top of her head. She has been the best little pup! Our 11-year-old male Boston "Jack" is very happy to have a four- legged companion again. We couldn't be more pleased. Happy in Illinois.
Chelsea & Rick Reimann
We were incredibly fortunate enough to welcome our newest family member, Minion, via Brett's Painted Bostons. Anyone interested in adopting a Boston simply HAS to go through Brett's. Sherri not only knows everything about these wonderful canine companions, but perhaps more importantly, she provides the love, care and attention they so desperately need from prior to their birth to the heartwarming meeting with their humans, she takes the time not only for the precious puppies, but for the adoptive family as well. She communicates all aspects a prospective family will need to know prior to adoption. If a Boston is a right fit for you and your family, you absolutely cannot go wrong with Sherri of Brett's Painted Bostons. Thanks to Sherri, our family became one 4-legged member larger and happier all the way around! Thank you Sherri!
Respectfully, Chris, Terri & Marilyn
Brett's: A Friend to All Bostons!
There are so many great testimonials to Brett’s Painted Bostons that there isn't much left to say. We brought home this wonderful, tiny, tiny (did I mention tiny?) package of pure joy and emotion at 8 wks. of age. She is now 4 months and we have not regretted a single moment. This feisty little she devil is so very much loved in our family. We have to be careful not to over-spoil her. She is smart and energetic, yet she cuddles with us at a moment’s notice. Sherri raises such gems and I am so very glad we found her when searching for a Boston Terrier to add to our family. Of course, I knew she would be everything we wished for in a breeder. Her web site is testimonial to that. She is always available on phone and email and very knowledgeable. On top of all that, she really cares and is a wonderful person to deal with. I think she will be a friend forever. Remember, Sherri, if you are ever our way, please come visit. I'm sure Kinsey will love to see you!
Adopted Mother of Kinsey McKenzie
Almost anyone can breed purebred AKC dogs. But that does not mean your new puppy was bred ethically. Sherri Brett is an ethical breeder and more. It is rare to find a woman like Sherri whose breeding program involves all the health testing to uphold the highest quality puppies that produce AKC standard Boston Terriers. Sherri is an amazing woman of faith. Working with her for six months prior to picking our puppy was a wonderful experience. We couldn't be happier. Little Oskar loves his new big sister, Lily, a Vizsla. At 10 weeks, he is so well adjusted, smart and active - blessed, thanks to all the love and care Sherri provided him and planned long before. Thank you, Sherri, for being the kind of breeder who always makes time to answer all my questions and concerns. I was so happy when you welcomed me to the Painted family!
Gretchen and Al Warczak
After my 11-year-old Boston had to be put to sleep I realized that I needed a new Boston Buddy and began my search. Sherri was the ONLY ONE to respond to me more than twice. And her quick and responsive replies never quit. I came to find what a superior breeding program Sherri has and how each of her litters were so carefully planned. Besides her multiple wins and champions in the ring, her puppies offered were and are top of the line. Sherri's meticulous health screenings assured me that I wasn't going to find a healthier Boston anywhere else. And with all the love a breeder can have for her puppies, she personally flew my little boy all the way to me in Ft. Lauderdale! She's wonderful and the pup she provided me with is wonderful. I am so thankful to Sherri.
Grateful Boston Puppy Parent
What a wonderful experience we had with Sherri Brett! We brought home two bundles of pure Joy-Sunrise and Cupcake, two little baby girls who are a bundle of energy. They were born two days apart and they are so much fun to watch play and interact with each other. They play together and sleep next to each other. They are a delight to have in our home. Sherri is so helpful with any questions or concerns you have regarding their care. She goes above and beyond emailing, sending pictures and videos of the puppies and welcomes updates on the puppies once you take them home. Our vet posted pictures on his Facebook of our baby girls and commented they were fine puppies. We got a multitude of likes!!! I am not sure how Sherri handles all the responsibilities she has, but she does a fantastic job raising quality Bostons. We are happy with her standard of care and the process you complete to be chosen to take one of her baby’s home. God Bless Sherri for all she does and her efforts.
Love our Bostons
My husband and I have had multiple Boston Terriers and knew we were ready for another. We researched breeders all over the country and came across Sherri's website. It was immediately apparent that she was in a class of her own among BT breeders. I had many interactions with Sherri over the months of waiting for my Boston baby to be born and then received frequent updates from her until our puppy was ready to go home at 8 weeks of age. Communicating with Sherri over the phone or email was very easy as she is extremely responsive. For Sherri, breeding Bostons is not just a hobby, it is a huge focus and priority in her life! She truly does love our babies as much as we do and there is nothing that she wouldn't do for any of them. Piper might have been the first Boston Terrier that we have received from Sherri but she certainly won't be the last!! Thank you, Sherri!!
Karl and Melissa Bowman
The missing puzzle piece to our family has been found...
Thanks so much for letting us into your home to view your Bostons. They were certainly comforting to us after our loss of our own Boston-----"Bean", over this past weekend. Time is what we need now, and we are so grateful to have something positive to focus on with the upcoming litter of "Fancy" and "Bullet" and the introduction of a new Boston to our family.
The Porter's--- Owensboro, KY:
I wanted to thank you Sherri for all that you did for me when buying my Boston. You went above and beyond and was really helpful with keeping me up to date with him with the weekly pictures and e-mails about his health. He arrived when promised and he is more than I expected. Thank You so much Sherri for Vedder!
Abe - Alexandria, Virginia
Hi Sherri, I just wanted to say that you are an amazing breeder and you have one of the best programs that we looked at!! I'm so happy that we got Remi through you and I hope to get another from you as soon as we can! All of your Bostons are amazing and you take such great care of all of your animals. Best of luck with the upcoming litters, I know you will do great!! (Remi says Hi!!)
Hey Mom! I love the webpage! I just love your dogs and as you know your grandsons do too!! :-) You've done a great job with the pictures and information. Good Luck! Love ya!
XOXOX from me and 'lil Austin & Mason
Hi Sherri, just wanted to let you know that Rico is doing great. He is such a big boy; we have our check up with the vet next week but I'm guessing he is close to 16 lbs. Rico has such a wonderful personality! Rico and Koby are inseparable.
Sherri, we just can't thank you enough for Palmer aka "Slugger" and for making his adoption process so enjoyable and stress free. Palmer is beautiful, energetic, intelligent, loving, and very well behaved. Hope you are enjoying the pix we post on FB. Our little boy is growing up quick!
