Meet Lex, a TFTR dog looking for his forever home!

Meet Lex, a TFTR dog looking for his forever home!

Hi, my nameLex 3 is LEX! I am a purebred Toy Fox Terrier.

I don’t really know exactly how old I am but it is somewhere between 8-10 years old maybe.Lex 6
I used to live with a really large bunch of other dogs all in one house. That has led me to have a few little issues and challenges. I am a bit of a wallflower when it comes to getting to know new people, but when I do finally know you, I’m a real snuggler! 
I really really want to have a person to love, I just don’t have much experience in doing it so I am not real good at it.  I know if someone would give me the chance and would help me learn I would be really good at it.
I have lived in a kennel type place for a lot of months now. They are really nice here and give me lots of love and teach me new things but I REALLY want my own home with my own family. I wouldn’t mind having a dog brother or sister and I don’t have an issue if you have one of those cat things. I really  think that a home with human children is not a good idea for me. New things still scare me and I don’t think I would do very good around them. PLEASE PLEASE look at my cute little face.
Do you think you can be my furever family? Right now I live in Texas but I can move if you want to adopt me.  It took mLex 2e a long time to believe that I deserve my own family but I now know that I am a good boy who deserves to have someone to love me. Please be my love if you can!  
Paws and Kisses, Lex 1Lex 5

Meet the TFTR Bloggers, part two!

Meet the TFTR Bloggers, part two!

Last week, we introduced a few of our blog volunteers and we’re continuing this week!

We’re looking forward to sharing stories with you over the coming year, including blog meet and greets with TFTs seeking homes, updates on dogs that were adopted through TFTR, profile stories of our amazing TFTR volunteers and board members, and many more posts! Meet two more Laura Lee of our TFTR bloggers:

Laura Lee has owned TFTs since she was a teenager. She adopted her first toy fox in 1981, his name was Petey and he went to college with her. The two were inseparable from the moment Pete arrived. In 1992, Laura added Heidi Belle as a friend for Petey who, by that time, was going blind. Jesse James came along in 1994 and in 1997 Pete-known as Papa Pete completed her TFT family. In 2010 Jesse passed away at the ripe old age of 17. Papa and Laura were torn. Papa was having a hard time adjusting to being alone, so Laura Lee set out to find him a friend. In 2011, she adopted Denver James who stole her heart. He helped Papa adjust, too, providing joy and relief for both. Vegas came in 2012 adding to the family. Last but certainly not least, Jackson joined the pack in 2013 from FritzFox Toy Fox Terriers. She had the privilege of being asked to foster for the Toy Fox Terrier Rescue, fostering Dillon and Rose in the past year. She loves being able to help bridge the gap between rescue and a permanent home.

 

Alaine has Alaine and Myaa re-homed TFT, Mya, that her daughter acquired almost 3 years ago. The original owner was moving and had to downsize her fur family. Their daughter Kristen, who was 18 at the time, had announced that she wanted a tattoo. Neither Alaine or her husband thought that was a good idea so after months of Kristen searching for the right tattoo….they suggested a dog! They already had a death row English Pointer rescue and a 5 year old black lab commonly called “the rug.” So the search began, and they started asking people if they knew of anyone who wanted to re-home a small dog. One day at work a colleague said my sister has a TFT and she wants to give her away. They went that night to see Mya, she was a 7 year old TFT who was so full of energy it was unbelievable!  She even had a tattoo on her belly. Several days later they picked her up and the rest is history.

Meet three of our TFTR bloggers:

Kiersten lives in Texas with her husband Mike and five dogs. She’s been on the TFTR board for a little over a year now, but actively involved with the rescue for several years!  Kiersten has three TFTR rescues – Maya (a fearful puppy mill dog), Audrey (a TFT mix rescued from a shelter); and Maddy (one of the Harris County/Houston dogs). She also has two other dogs – Irish (a 55 pound big sister to all of the TFTs) and Callie (a TFT rescued from a backyard breeder in Oklahoma). All five of the dogs keep them very busy, as they absolutely run the house.

 

Angela and Spike

Angela lives in Pennsylvania with her husband J. and their Toy Fox Terrier Spike. Spike has been their dog since August 2014, when they drove to Ohio to get him from someone who listed him on Craigslist. He is two-years old and absolutely adorable, he even has his very own Facebook page! Before Spike, they had Daisy Mae, Angela’s dad’s gift to himself when they lost her mom in 1997. Daisy Mae traveled a lot over the years, before spending her last years with Angela and J. She lived ’til the age of about 16.5.

 

Kasey and Abby

 

Kasey currently has two TFTs.  The oldest, Miss Abigail, will be 12 this March, she is Kasey’s bff.  She adopted her when her last child went off to college, yes, empty nest. Abby and Kasey love to go shopping together, and, she loves trips to sidewalk cafes.   Miss Itty Bit is 3 years old, a beautiful but very different wee dog, has more of a terrier attitude. Kasey also has two cats, two horses, and a lovely white dove (he was a rescue, too, picked up in a parking lot after almost being run down)!

Thank you for visiting the new and official website for Toy Fox Terrier Rescue (TFTR)!!!  We are still building our website but hope that it will become a valuable resource for all things TFT related!

 

The Toy Fox Terrier Rescue (TFTR) is a national rescue that is made up of a group of TFT lovers dedicated to rehoming those across the US that need new loving homes, whether they are strays or their owners can no longer care for them. Of course this is not possible without the help of our many volunteers, fosters, and transporters located across the country.  We always need more help with the many aspects of rescuing, so if you are interested in volunteering with us, please send us an e-mail to tftrescue@yahoo.com or complete our volunteer application located on our ‘Forms and Applications’ page.
