Patty and MaxEach month, we’ll be highlighting one of our 2017 Toy Fox Terrier Rescue calendar dogs and our Mr. February is Max!

Max belonged to Patty, our TFTR President. He was a very special boy and taught her so many life lessons in the 7 years he was part of her life. Max was her very first rescue, she picked him up from a Humane Society in Maine when he was 7 months old. A neurologist in Maine diagnosed Max with Cerebellar Degeneration or Cerebellar Abiotrophy. With his debilitating disease, his life was not an easy one but they made the most of it.  His trips around the yard were done in the trailer attached to the lawn mower, and his trips around the lake were done in a cart Patty found at the consignment shop.  He didn’t walk well, and really not at all at the end, but he loved being on his bed with his toys, in the Xpen outside in the sunshine, or just plain snuggled up sleeping on his bed.

And Max just loved his big sister, Bailee the Boxer.  He slept with her on the couch and he stood over her as often as possible!  He didn’t like many people because he was so protective of himself with his disease, but he absolutely loved Patty’s family (her mom, dad, niece, and nephew). Patty says that Max taught her to never give up and to be happy with what we have been given. What a special and wonderful little boy, thank you for sharing his story with us, Patty!

OPtee and Tiggern Facebook, we recently changed our cover page picture to honor two toy fox terriers that have passed away. Their owner Marge loved her dogs dearly. This past weekend was Marge’s 50th birthday (happy birthday) and her friends donated money in memory of her two sweet pups…she in turn donated $500 to Toy Fox Terrier Rescue in memory of Ptee and Tigger. We honor that donation and their memory with their picture to brighten our page. THANK YOU Marge and friends for the amazing donation. Sweet memories of Ptee and Tigger!
