Olly is a young male lurcher terrier cross. His time was up in a Spanish pound and we were asked to help this wonderful dog. He is very affectionate, a bit shy and submissive. He manages to be scruffy and elegant at the same time, with a unique face and horse dressage walk. Currently in foster, he has never known a proper home, but you wouldn’t think it - his personality is rapidly comes through. He loves physical play, a good old tug of war and a rub. He needs to gain confidence which his owner needs to help develop, maybe he would enjoy living with a chilled dog that would teach him the ropes. He loves being by your side, and is very calm for his young age (under two). At 13 kilos, he is quite tall 57cm to the shoulder, about the same size as an Irish terrier. Someone out there is a dapper owner looking for this daper dog in their life. He is neutered, has all his jabs and passport. Currently in Bournemouth foster. No cats or small furries.

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). Complete a TerrierSOSQuestionnaire2017 now.

Cuddly Lobo was found as stray in Tenerife, currently in foster in Spain.
He was brought to a rescue that is run by an English couple. Lobo was heavily matted, in a terrible state. He also walked with an odd gait.
The rescue took him in - cleaned him up, and took him to a vet to assess his gait. The diagnosis is that poor Lobo's 1st vertebrae is out of sync, and this is causing a compression on his spinal cord. The vet feels that his condition can be managed with pain meds and anti-inflammatory meds and this will give his a happy full life.
Due to his age and condition, he will not find a home in Tenerife - so we were asked if we could help. Well, we love a fox terrier (who doesn't!) - and we think he is a doll!
We will reassess his condition when he arrives to the UK. He is fine with other dogs (keeps to himself), loves people and is ready for his new life.
Lobo deserves to live his life in a wonderful home here where he can get the love and compassion he has lacked so far. Complete a TerrierSOSQuestionnaireMay2015 now! Remember: Children: 10+, no cats or small furries. Dogs for adoption will be neutered, passported, vaccinated.by
Calisto was abandoned with another dog in a park in Northern Spain - they were picked up and placed in the local town kennels - they do not get held long here and are thrown in with a lot of other dogs. Someone came forward for his companion - but no one wanted Calisto. So he had days before they would end his life. We were contacted by a volunteer in Spain asking if we could help. You see Calisto is an older Fox Terrier and he is not quite 'perfect'. But we at Terrier SOS think he is beautiful and we want to find him the right home that will see the gem that he is. He is approx 6-7 years old. He's has three deformities: on his jaw, he has a cleft palate and a deformity on his spine. The Vet has said none of these cause him any problems and he manages just fine. He does make noises when he breathes apparently - due to the cleft palate. He is perfectly healthy and has just been neutered. He had infections due to the many dog bites he received whilst in kennels and they are being treated. He is currently in foster in Bournemouth and we would love an adoptive home for him - he is desperate for human attention. He is fine to live with other dogs - but no small furries. This is a special boy and we want a special home. No cats no small furries. Children 10+ - Download the questionnaire here TerrierSOSQuestionnaireMay2015 by
