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.

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 a Welsh / 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 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 Can you give this boy a lifeline?

Kika – Terrier Cross

Terrier SOS is at its capacity in terms of dogs it can manage - and we are always dreading opening our inbox because the need seems so great....
This is the beautiful Kika.  Kika was one of the many dogs abandoned in Spain - she ended up in the same perrera as Lolo.  Time was not on her side - she is a larger (15 kilo) cross - and she ran out of time - they needed to clear kennels and she would be the next to go.  I had been asked if we could help her several times - and we said we were unable - but I got a final message asking if I could just try and squeeze her in - if we said No - Kika would lose her life - it is really that simple.  So although we really just don't know how we find the room - we did.

We get put in the most impossible position - and we work hard to change the destiny for these dogs - dogs like Kika (right, below with Lolo).

We have never regretted saving a dog - and they deserve a loving family and a chance to get to shine.  Could you be Kika’s Guardian Angel?  Kika is only 18 months old - she is a female Terrier cross - she is a bit larger that a fox terrier - she is a very loving girl and she needs a family that has the time and commitment to her.  She has never been a pet and will need some help to make that transition - she has been showing anxiety about being left and we will be working with a behaviourist.  The prospective family will continue the work we are putting in.  She will need a family that will be around for her - and due to her excitability she cannot live with any young children.
She is in Norfolk - she is speyed, vaccinated, passported and health checked.  She cannot live with young children or small furries.

Lolo – Wire Fox Terrier – Reserved

Meet the amazing Lolo!  A beautiful fox terrier boy and an honoured member of the Pointy Ears Club!
Like so many of our dogs, we got a message about a boy at risk in a perrera in Southern Spain - so through the usual wonderful volunteers he came into our care. He went into kennels with another of our rescued dogs, Kika.  They were firm friends - which just shows he can live on his own or with another dog (with proper introductions).  Lolo is 5 years old, neutered and in foster in Nottinghamshire.
lolo
Lolo is a super little dog. He enjoys being outside, always on the go, sniffing out the local wildlife and patrolling the fences and keeping the neighbourhood safe. Indoors he's the first to relax on his bed or (better, in his opinion) on a chair or sofa. His foster has often stood up from desk and turned round to find Lolo has taken up his rightful place on her chair. Lolo loves a cuddle, on his own terms, he'll snuggle up in the sofa and watch a film with you but is just as happy working on a chew in his bed.
lolo4
With ears like these, there's no sneaking past Lolo, he wants to be part of whatever is going on in the home. Whenever you are, there's Lolo, right behind you or sitting on your foot. Just don't leave the bathroom door ajar...
Lolo loves humans and is so friendly with everyone he meets, he even showed no fear when meeting the vet. Lolo is getting used to seeing other dogs out walking. He's picked up the training really quickly, and now walks really well on the lead provided you follow our instructions.  He is a dog that needs time and patience. However, his recall is typical for a terrier (i.e. non-existent!) and he is very prey driven so we expect life for Lolo will be enjoyed on a lead!  See a video of Lolo on our facebook page
