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.

Henry Wire Fox Terrier

Henry is a 3-4 year old boy who has never known a home life, as he was used for breeding in a puppy mill in France, which was then closed down.  He was rehomed but it’s not working out and he is back for Terrier SOS’s attention.  His foster family said:

He is the most adorable puppy in a 4 year olds body I know! Since becoming part of the family he has experienced grass between his paws, strokes from friendly hands, cuddles (he loves those), the beach, car journeys (not so keen on those) and a whole host of other things. He is so willing to learn and please and nothing is better than seeing the wag of his tail. Help likes to meet all the other dogs but sometimes finds it frustrating that he can’t play with them all, he is learning good manners and now he has mastered the sit command he can learn to be a little more self controlled. Walkies as you would expect is one of Helps favourite times, he walks very well on the lead and always has his nose to the ground sniffing out new smells, he can still be a bit nervous on unfamiliar walks or very busy places but his confidence grows daily and with continued exposure and reassurance he will continue to flourish. Due to the way Help lived his life before he is able to be left alone for up to 4 hours with no separation issues, he calmly goes to his bed and settles himself for sleep. He also settles very well at night and will happily sleep until you are ready for cuddles or walkies.”

Henry is working with a behaviourist to overcome his transition issues, and is currently in kennels putting together a plan for his future home.

Henry needs a terrier-experienced home that is calm with good routines.   Could you offer Henry the fab home he deserves? Please read with all important FAQ Page & download the TerrierSOSQuestionnaire2017

He is neutered and vaccinated. No cats or small furries, no children under 10 in the household.

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?

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.

Remember: Children: 10+, no cats or small furries.  Dogs for adoption will be neutered, passported, vaccinated, where appropriate.
