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.

Hero Hal – Fox Terrier

Please meet Hero Hal Jordan – another one of our Terrier SOS Super Heroes….we got an urgent plea asking if we could help this poor dog – straying on the streets in poor condition, limping – who could turn him away?

He is a brave little dog and we felt we had to help.  So we said we would take him, and with the help of the amazing volunteer network we have abroad – who drove to pick him up and get him to a vet to seek treatment for his front leg.  He has since had surgery and had his front right leg amputated, as the damage was too severe for remedial treatment.  He is currently in foster in Spain.

He walks much better now as a 3-legged hero, and is proving to be an incredibly smart young man!  A fast learner, he is currently undertaking some basic behaviour training to ensure his manners are up to scratch!  He knows where the cookie jar is, for sure!  Check out our facebook page for videos of his training!

Poppy wire fox terrier

Poppy – Wire Fox Terrier

Note: We’ve had a number of enquiries about Poppy and are confident we will be able to find her forever home.  If you like the sound of precious Poppy, do take a look at her fellow 3-legged fox terrier pal, Hero Hal!  

We know this little girl will steal your heart like she stole ours! Her name is Poppy – she lived in the Spanish countryside with a lot of other dogs – the owner would go out on horse back – with the dogs following him.

One day he returned home and she was not following.  She eventually turned up later a few days later…with a wire snare around the leg, it was also entangled with barb-wire. Because she was stuck for too long the leg was black and the blood supply cut off – they had no option but to amputate the leg. Poppy had been through hell those days caught in that trap, desperately trying to get out. The owner said she was not any good to him anymore. Luckily a good person contacted us and she came into our care in Spanish foster. There the vet decided to amputate the leg and had to deal with other issues.  Watch a video of Poppy here.

She is now in London foster and this is what her host family says:

“Poppy came rather shy at times but given her circumstances very upbeat, and laid back, quite and extremely lovable – and with a tail that wags like the Doctors K-9 which dog would not be.

It has been a joy to see her sleep and recuperate – but she is now also in the position to walk and exercise and generally build her fitness up, and it turns out she still has a lot of gumption, and gives the other dogs a good run and as much fox terrier spirit as they give her.

She is toilet trained, and has not damaged anything in the house. She is even good at walking up and down our normal staircases, though the more modern ones she does not like to climb up. She likes being around company whether that be adults or the kids, and can be a little anxious when left on her own unless she’s sleeping.

Due care is required to ensure she does not damage her remaining hind leg, so if you are a mountaineer or a keen hiker she is not going to be the dog for you. A semi rural or urban lifestyle would suit her, she could live on her own or with other dogs and older children.

She is a delight and needs a household where people are around most of the time or can take her to work.”

Poppy is dog friendly and a really sweet girl. She manages to adjust on three legs and just needs a family that will love her as a pet. She is on the smaller size for a foxy (8 kilos, 35cm high to shoulder). Does a three legged dog need special treatment? You may have to help her go up stairs, and rub her on the side where she can’t do it herself. Have a lifestyle where she is less likely to hurt her back leg (mountaineering, hill hiking not so good).
