Hi, my name is Daisy and I’m looking for my forever home! I’m only two years old and I love to play. My foster mom says I’m just the cutest little toy fox terrier/chihuahua mix ever!

Hi, I'm Daisy and I'm looking for my forever home!
Hi, I’m Daisy and I’m looking for my forever home!

I love attention and like to explore the outside world, but loud noises (especially outside) do scare me, because everything outside is new to me. Sometimes, I can feel a little anxious, but my curious nature wins out.

I can sit and I love treats so very much! I’m also super smart and learned how to go to the bathroom outside from my foster mom’s other dog all on my very own.

I won’t lie, I like to sleep in the bed and under the covers! And I’ll lick your ear to show you how much I love you! I also love to cuddle up when things are calm. Plush toys are my very favorite things and as I’m still a bit of a puppy, I will grab a shoe every now and then just out of boredom (but I won’t chew too much on it, promise!).

I am up to date on my shots, am heartworm negative, and spayed. If you think I might be the right dog for you, please reach out to TFTR by email at admin@tftrescue.com or you can find me on Petfinder by clicking here (and see more photos of me!)

Are you my forever family?

Hi, my name is Riley and I’m a toy fox terrier who lived in a puppy mill for 6 1/2 years, where I was forced to live in a cage and have tons of puppies. But then I was rescued and adopted by my loving mom. Unfortunately, my mom is having some health issues and I’m staying at the vet right now until I can find another home where I’ll be just as loved. TFTR is helping me find just the right family!

Riley out and about town!

I turned 13 in November, so I’d love a home where I can have lots of love, snuggle in comfy beds, and hang out with you!

I have a very special walk because I had 2 broken bones in the puppy mill and no one took care of me, so my legs didn’t get a chance to heal the way they were supposed to. But I still get around just fine and only need pain meds every now and then to help me feel better.

I get along well with other dogs, but I am a little shy with people until I have a chance to get to know you. I had a doggie door in my last home, so I may need some help learning how to potty in the right place if you don’t have one at your home!

Just look at Riley’s big smile!

I’m located in Muskogee, OK and am up to date on my shots, am heartworm negative, and spayed. Transport is possible to surrounding areas like MO, TX, AR, and KS!

Buster and Babs 1

Buster and Babs posing together!

 

Babs and Buster are looking for their forever homes!  They are currently being fostered together in Knoxville, TN.

Babs is 11 years old and came from the same family as Buster. She is spayed, current on vaccinations, and heartworm negative. Babs loves to be snuggled and petted, she is pretty persistent about getting love! She is on a strict diet and meds to try and get control of her skin allergy issues. She’s the absolute sweetest, she loves to be held and give kisses! Babs is wonderful around children.

Buster is 9 years old, but you’d never know because he has plenty of energy and loves to talk to you! He is not a great fan of children as they are a little too rough with him. He has epilepsy, which is controlled through medication and a special diet.  Buster likes to sleep under the covers, loves blankets, and is a total model in all of his sweaters!

If you think you could give Babs and Buster a home or want to learn more about them, please contact us here! Learn more about our adoption process in our TFTR adoption letter! Click here to download an Adoption Application!

A huge thank you to K9 Heelers and foster mom Jenny for all your help with Mojo!  To learn more about Mojo’s story in previous blog posts, click here.

Mojo is 6 years old, good with other dogs and kids, and no issues other than he loves to steal socks!  He is able to move around just fine using his other senses (though he will appreciate it if you don’t move the furniture around too much on him!). Mojo has so much love to give, don’t you want him to join your family?

If you think you could give Mojo a home or want to learn more about him, please contact us here! Learn more about our adoption process in our TFTR adoption letter! Click here to download an Adoption Application!

Laverne 4Laverne is a 9 year old toy fox terrier being fostered in Las Vegas, NV and is related to the Harris County Houston TFTs we placed last year through TFTR! 

Her foster mom says that Laverne is an absolute love who enjoys cuddling, playing with toys, and snuggling with you at night! Laverne is also quite the TV watcher, she would prefer to sit in your lap while watching your favorite shows. She is good with other dogs, but small children would be difficult for her as she is a little nervous.

This adorable floppy eared love bug spent most of her life with just one person and other dogs, so she is a little shy around new people at first, but is very sweet and will warm up to you once she feels comfortable. She would do well in a home with either a retired person or an adopter who works from home, as she loves to be with her people. Laverne is also a bit of an escape artist, so she will need a home with a very secure fence!

If you think you are the right family for Laverne or want to learn more about her, please contact us here! Learn more about our adoption process in our TFTR adoption letter! Click here to download an Adoption Application for Laverne!

Mojo 1*ADOPTED* Exciting news, Mojo has been transferred to rescue as of this weekend!  He is staying at K9 Heeler for a bit before moving to a foster home.  We have scheduled him for his eye and dental surgery at the beginning of February. We are also going to try and get him a halo which will help him not run into things. The approximate cost for all this will be $1,000.

For those that would like to donate to help Mojo you can send a donation via paypal using tftrescue@yahoo.com, mail a donation, donate via our website, or donate directly to the vet where Mojo will have his surgery – Bear Branch Vet Hospital in Woodlands, TX at 281-292-5000. If you do call the vet, please thank them for their support—they have very generously given us an amazing discount to help lower the cost of MoJo’s surgery.

Mojo is 6 years old, good with other dogs and kids–potty trained–with no issues other than he loves to steal socks! Mojo’s previous family was unable to pay for his eye surgery (he has detached retinas). Though he will have both his eyes removed, once he has the surgery, he will be pain free and be able to live a happy life! He has already lost most of his sight, so he is able to move around just fine using his other senses (though he will appreciate it if you don’t move the furniture around too much on him!).   Mojo 2Mojo 3

IMG_9752Ruckus is five years old and full of love, he would love to find his forever family and be adopted in the new year! He enjoys playtime, especially with his favorite toys, which include a squeaking lamb and an empty, plastic mayonnaise jar. Give him one of these and expect him to be occupied for at least half an hour! Ruckus is a UKC-registered Toy Fox Terrier who is originally from Napa Valley, so he is quite the gentleman who enjoys the finer things in life such as sun bathing, napping at your feet, and mingling with his canine friends.

He has spent some time befriending all sorts of other animals and people, including his veterinary care staff (he’s become a favorite!), two Boston terriers, cats, and even chickens. He did great with everyone! Ruckus is a well-mannered pup who knows his basic commands and how to sit and wait for his meals. He also goes to bed on time, right around 9 pm and is ready to start the day about 6 am. He is currently crate trained and enjoys having his own area to sleep in at night. Ruckus weighs approximately 13 pounds, is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and microchipped.

Ruckus

Ruckus is diabetic. Now, this sounds scarier than it is, so don’t let that discourage you! He will need to be on medication to continue to live a happy and healthy life. We can show you the ropes of giving him his medication and any other special care he may need. At 5 years old, this boy has a lot of pep and life left in him, so we know there is someone out there willing to give him his happily ever after. He takes his medication like a pro and will reward you with plenty of laughs! Ruckus has it all except a forever home. If you think you could give this boy a home or want to learn more about him, please contact us here!
