Q&A with TFTR President Patty Blair:

 

In the first of a series highlighting our board members, TFTR President Patty Blair recently shared her insights on being involved with dog rescue.  She currently has two Toy Fox Terriers and one Boxer.

Ranmar's Perfect Player, "Tedy", (white and tan TFT) and Olivia, or Miss O (tri TFT rescue that Patty has had for 9 years)

Ranmar’s Perfect Player, “Tedy”, (white and tan TFT) and Olivia, or Miss O (tri TFT rescue that Patty has had for 9 years)

How did you first become involved in rescue and TFTR? 

I got my first TFT when I was in high school in the 70s.  As I got older, I wanted another but was living with Boxers so I didn’t think having a TFT would be possible.  Somewhere around 2003, I wrote to the National Rescue Coordinator for the ATFTC rescue program and volunteered my services.  The rest, as they say, is history.

I have been involved with rescue off and on since 2003 – active when I could be active, and taking breaks when I had too many dogs to be able to help new ones.  Part of being involved with rescue is making a commitment to a dog for its lifetime – whether that is with a dog that needs to be returned to rescue after placement for whatever reason or having to keep a dog that cannot be placed.  There came a point when I had 5 dogs that had issues and were considered special needs so I took an extended break.  When Pat Land passed away, I became more active in rescue and became the President of TFTR, where I am still serving.

What is the most fulfilling part of being involved in rescue? 

There are two things that affect me the most about rescue.  The first is that “sigh” you get from your foster dog telling you that he/she is comfortable in your home and feels safe, sometimes for the very first time in its life.  The other is when you see the joy that an adopting family has when they bring their new little one into their home.  I truly believe that the adopter needs the dog as much as the dog needs the adopter.

In what ways do rescue dogs enrich our lives?

Max "Maximoso" in his Moe Mobile

Max “Maximoso” in his Moe Mobile

My previous rescue dogs have shown me so many things – trust, unconditional love, the hope for a better future, and most of all, appreciation.  My very first rescue, Max, taught me to never, ever give up and to appreciate what life has given you.  I picked him up from a Humane Society in Maine. My first thought was for 7 months old, he sure is a large boy.  I then watched him walk and I knew something wasn’t quite right.  I was told he couldn’t do stairs but everything else was OK.  I tried to place Max in a new home but it became apparent he wasn’t a good candidate for placement so I made the decision to keep him.  Well, as time went by, Max got worse – he walked like a deer on ice, he ran like a bucking horse, he fell down a lot.  When he was hunting for the rodents he could smell underground, he would lie on his side and start digging – the dirt would be flying everywhere.  With a referral, I took Max to a neurologist in Maine who diagnosed him with Cerebellar Degeneration or Cerebellar Abiotrophy.  While the disease itself doesn’t kill, dogs in the wild cannot fend for themselves and find food, so they starve to death.  Domesticated dogs cannot be carried and are typically euthanized at about a year of age.  But, Max was small enough to carry so he went everywhere with help.  He rode in a netted grocery cart for his walks, he rode in a wagon hooked up to the riding lawn mower – his food and water was brought to him.  Finally, at 7 years of age, it was time for Max to go.  Max loved those he loved and was protective of himself with strangers.  He brought me such joy in the years he was with me.  But most of all, Max taught me to never give up and to be happy with what we have been given.  He knew nothing else.

Patty-Tedy-OlivaWhat is your vision for TFTR? 

My vision for TFTR is to be able to help every TFT in need without having to say no because we do not have the resources – either not enough volunteers or the financial means to help.  I am extremely proud of the growth we have shown in the 1.5 years since TFTR’s founder, Pat, passed away.  We will continue to help as many as we can in her memory.  I hope that by the end of my second term as President, I will be able to turn over an organization that is smoothly run, well known and highly respected.  We have a lot left to do but with the help of those of you who are reading this, we are on our way to accomplishing my dream.

Caring for and loving TFTs can make you laugh every single day by something they have done.  Once you have a TFT, you will never want to be without one again.

 

Patty, thank you for sharing your TFTR journey with us!

Vicky & Lil’ Bitt

 

 

 

Leon , a tri-colored 7 yr old male, came to Toy Fox Terrier Rescue by way of Florida.  Leon was one of five dogs that were transported to Denver, Colorado from a hoarding situation in Florida. Leon was a shy boy who took a while to warm up but once he did, he loved to cuddle all the time.  Leon’s photos eventually captured the heart of Vicky, who was searching for her furever pup online.  After the application and approval process was completed, she drove up from Texas to a Colorado adoption event, The Rescue Rally of the Rockies, to meet and pick up Leon.  Vicky immediately took Leon (now named Little Bitt) for a celebratory walk and to spoil him by buying him goodies from the Rally vendors.  Lil’ Bitt and Vicky stayed a few days in Colorado and then had a wonderful road trip back home to Texas.  Congratulations to Vicky and Lil’ Bitt!

Dean-Quint-Adoption 6-7-14

Quint with his new momma Kari!

Dean, a tri-colored, 5 month old TFT/rat mix was saved from the Fort Worth Humane Shelter (TX). He was pulled by TFTR on the day he was supposed to be euthanized due to a simple kennel cough. We were lucky to have a group of volunteers including a puller, 2 different transporters, and a foster, who were able to get him to a vet as soon as he got out of the shelter for an examination and some meds and then on to his new foster home, Cheryl & Dean (yes the husband had the same name).  Dean was so scared, as he had gone through a lot in his short lifetime, but he grew to love his new found freedom! He started to come out of his shell by learning and loving to play with his foster siblings and of course loving cuddle time. His new mommy and daddy, Kari & Curtis, automatically fell in love with all of his photos online and immediately sent in her adoption application, completed the approval process and was excited to pick up her new furever dog! Dean was renamed Quint or Quin for short and has been spoiled silly with toys galore! Thank you to all of the amazing volunteers, contributors, and most of all Kari & Curtis for saving Dean’s life!
