*ADOPTED* 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

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.

Over the next two weeks, we’ll be introducing you to a few of our blog volunteers! 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 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)!

One of the necessary things we have to do in rescue is sometimes ask for help paying the bills. You all are always so generous that it is very hard for us to ask you to give more. The last month we (Toy Fox Terrier Rescue, Inc.) have had very large medical bills for 2 of our special love bugs Lainy and Pudder. Pudder needs an MRI and will be having it done this Saturday. We have set up a YouCaring fundraiser to raise the money necessary to cover Pudder’s medical bills. Here is the link to our YouCaring fundraiser.

 .

We realize not everyone can always afford to donate. What everyone can do is share it on your page and ask your friends and family to share it also. Please help us do the most we can for this sweet little guy. We are hoping this MRI will give us some of the much needed answers. THANK YOU so much to all of you for your continued support of the work we do rescuing and caring for Toy Fox Terriers across the US.

We are asking for your help if possible. Lainy is in pretty rough shape. She was surrendered to us on February 7th and has a hole in both sides of her cheeks, infections in her eyes and will probably need some teeth removed. She also has some eye problems that may need more care. We are trying to raise at least $500.00. If you can help it will be greatly appreciated. We can’t thank her foster parents enough for taking this sweet girl and giving her the attention and love she deserves. They are spending quite a bit of time each day due to her medical issues and have been absolutely amazing! Thank you so much!
Here is a link to our website that you can use to donate http://www.tftrescue.com/donate/
or our paypal address is tftrescue@yahoo.com. Please make sure to select the checkbox within the “Donation Information” box that says “I would like to designate this donation to a specific fund” and select “Lainy’s Medical Fund”.

Hello,
As I sit here writing this, the holidays are over and 2015 is upon us. January 2015 marks two years since
TFTR, Inc.’s founder, Pat Land, passed away. We miss her terribly but her work continues.
As the current President of TFTR, I have to say this group runs with the amazing work of our VicePresident,
Samantha Dominguez, and our Secretary/Treasurer, Leslie Greenwalt. Together they are the
backbone of TFTR. They work tirelessly to help the TFTs in need and to keep this group going in the right
direction. I also want to mention Dianne Clark, who is always available to help us identify a dog as a TFT,
TFT mix, Rat Terrier, or something else. When we get pictures, we don’t always know what the little one
is and Dianne makes the answer much clearer. Then there is Kiersten Cremin who is our volunteer
coordinator. Most of our volunteers, and potential volunteers, have had the chance to “meet” Kiersten
so she is already familiar to you. We truly hope Kiersten will become an officer in 2015. We have also
recently offered the position of transport coordinator to someone and we really hope she accepts.
In addition to the above mentioned officers and members, I also want to give a big shout out to our
volunteers, the true heartbeat of rescue. If it wasn’t for the people who foster, transport, check out
shelters, donate items to our auctions, buy the auction items, buy the products we sell, make generous
donations throughout the year, and generally spread the word about TFTs in need, we would not survive
as a rescue group, plain and simple. There are not enough words to thank you for what you do for us
and our beloved Toy Fox Terriers.
In the past year, we held our first Halloween costume photo contest, conducted our 2nd annual auction,
sold our first calendar, sold our first t-shirt and hoodie, our Facebook following has grown by 1,000
(from 490 in December ‘13 to 1496 currently), and we have revamped our website www.tftrescue.com
to name a few. Our treasury just about doubled in 2014. All thanks to our followers.
As we move forward in 2015, we are looking back in review in order to fix the things we didn’t do as well
as we should have and setting our goals for the upcoming year. We hope that you will continue to
follow us on Facebook and watch our website for our news and most importantly, for the dogs that
need our help. It takes a village to help as many TFTs as possible.
Thank you, again, for all of your support and dedication…

Patty Blair
