Rex – Fox Terrier

Announcing our newest TSOS member... Rex! This is a 2 year old boy we took under our wing earlier in the summer. This little boy was put into the perrera by his owner, the owner gave the right to sacrifice (this means that the perrera can put him to sleep immediately). He had no time.  So we made room, and we would like to introduce you to Rex (Rexus Maximus, T Rex, Rex Harrison) - we feel he deserves to live like a King and we will be bringing him to the UK in the Autumn. At present, we are still finding out more about this handsome chap.  We know he's very sweet and dog-friendly, but no idea about cats or children at this point.  As we discover more, we will update you. Like Sir Galahad, he has tested positive for Leishmania and has received treatment to which he is responding well. We are told he is a sweet boy, kind and gentle. He is only 2 years old. He wants to find his family.  Download & complete the TerrierSOSQuestionnaire2017 to rehome Rex. We look forward to hearing from  you.

Chouquette & Donnie – Wire Fox Terriers

Chouquette was used for hunting and left abandoned. She came to the UK and was so very frightened of people and sounds and pretty much anything. We needed her to go somewhere safe until we could arrange a foster for her that could help her adjust to modern life. We work with Fox Terrier Rescue in the UK, and they kindly said they would help us and took Chouquette into their kennels, and something very amazing happened.
Chouquette became a companion and a Big Sister to a very frightened boy in rescue: Donnie. before Chouquette , Donnie wouldn’t interact or play with anyone and was so afraid of people. Both dogs had such a difficult start to life - we feel they bonded and are each others strength. So the two must be adopted together. Chouquette is about 12 and Donnie is 9. They will both need a home that will be a quiet retirement home. They would do well in a semi rural or rural home that has a nice large secure garden. They can spend their days playing in the garden, and cuddling with their family at night. Chouquette is the braver of the two and we know that Donnie will follow her lead. Chouquette is a Fox terrier Cross and Donnie is a Wire Fox Terrier
They can't live with young children or small furries. They are currently in Norfolk, and the prospective family would be expected to be able to visit a few times before adoption - this will allow the dogs to get use to you and make their transition far less stressful for them.
They are dog friendly, and of course people friendly - but they need time and patience - they are the sweetest pair and just deserve to be living in a forever home. Both are vaccinated, neutered and ready for their home. Chouquette has a passport, Donnie does not.  Download & complete the TerrierSOSQuestionnaire2017 to give Chouquette and Donnie a loving retirement.

Minnie – Wire Fox Terrier – Reserved

Minnie is a young female fox terrier, taller than average, very affectionate to people. In the house with her foster family, she is very calm and very attentive. She is very patient with foster sister Fox Terrier. After months spent in kennels, she enjoys the home comforts sofa and bed, and is house trained. This is because she is quite bright and quick to learn. She loves chewy toys and zoomies in the garden. Out and about, she walks very well on the lead. However, she gets erratic when she sees other dogs in the part, through a mixture of fear and excitement. This has improved but will need work. For this reason, she would be better suited for a family who have owned dogs before. She can live with other dogs at home and is great with older children. She is as irresistible and has many admirers whilst she promenades. Minnie ended up in a Spanish pound through no fault of her own, she hasn't had a great start in life and fully deserves to catch up, as well as help some humans in the same way.  In London foster.

Yoko – Welsh Terrier Mix

We were asked to help an ‘Airedale’ in France - he had been found wandering - they had contacted the owner on the microchip and he said he had given the dog to someone else - and did not want him back - the new owner didn’t want him - so he was in the pound.   Yoko is an older male (about 9).  We were asked as his last chance, and we said yes.  We were told he was an Airedale but when the Transport Van arrived and out popped this little dog, we knew he was more Welsh Terrier than Airedale due to his size!  Welsh Terriers are often mistaken for miniature Airedales (as their owners will agree!) but they're a very different terrier indeed!  We believe Yoko is an Airedale / Welsh mix.   Yoko is a loving and fun boy, but he doesn’t like other dogs - and being in kennels is not ideal for him - he has been moved to a quieter environment in Norfolk and is working with a trainer to deal with his dog-dog frustrations. He deserves a foster / adoptive home. He is a bright, loving dog, he likes people and really would need some time on his own. He is 9 and is looking for a retirement home. As he is medium sized, he is more manageable with his dog-dog issues and we would work with any prospective family to ensure a plan was in place.  He walks well on a lead, travels well in a car and loves people! Can you give this boy a lifeline? Download & complete the TerrierSOSQuestionnaire2017 to rehome our lovely senior chap, Yoko.

Sir Galahad – Wire Fox Terrier

Sir Galahad is a Wire Fox Terrier lad, awaiting travel from Spain to his new furever home in the UK. He's a lively young chap (around 3 years old) and will need an active home to keep him busy and entertained.  He is both people and dog-friendly, though can be a little selective about other male dogs.  He has been neutered and has his passport ready.  He has tested positive for leishmaniasis (a parasite-borne disease transmitted by sandflies which causes skin issues) so is receiving treatment for this in Spain and will be coming to the UK in the autumn. Leishmaniasis is a tropical non-contagious disease transmitted to dogs by a tiny sandfly in Mediterranean countries.  Leishmaniasis cannot currently be cured, but can be treated. A dog with leishmaniasis can live a happy and healthy life for many years. The usual treatment is with Alopurinol tablets, which are cheap and readily available as they are used for treatment of gout in humans. We support our families that adopt Leish positive dogs - and there are also several groups on Social Media that provide information and support.  Sir Galahad has the strain which attacks his organs, he is also allergic to the standard treatment, so is being treated with Auto Vaccination, which can take around 3 weeks to show any results.  The Leish is attacking his kidneys and he is quite poorly, so will be remaining in Spain for treatment for the summer.  Fingers crossed for a pawsitive outcome! galahad2 Could you give this adorable WFT a new lease of life?
