Fox Terrier Rescue of Colorado
Fox Terrier Rescue of Colorado is a group of devoted people dedicated to the successful placement of homeless Wire Fox Terriers.
We have been in existence since 1991 and have successfully placed many, many dogs.
We take dogs from local shelters, owner relinquishments, strays, any and all situations where there is a need. We accept dogs of all ages and conditions as long as we feel we can successfully place the dog in a new home.
In addition, we try to educate the public about the Wire Fox Terrier breed so that they can determine whether the breed is suitable for them BEFORE they adopt or purchase a dog.
Fox Terrier Rescue is a member of the coalition of All Breed Rescue Network, Inc., Colorado's largest purebred dog rescue coalition.
Colorado's Friends of Fox Terriers
Bonnie Guzman grew up with Toy Fox Terriers and has owned Wire and Smooth Fox Terriers since 1971. She has done some conformation showing but her area of expertise is rescue. She has also owned Lakeland and Irish Terriers, as well as Rottweilers and Whippets. She is the co-founder of All Breed Rescue Network, has served as Vice President of the Fox Terrier Network, Inc. and is a past National Rescue Coordinator for The United States Lakeland Terrier Club.
Janis Moore has owned and trained Wire Fox Terriers and Lakeland Terriers for approximately ten years. She has earned agility titles on her dogs, as well as owned dogs trained at the commercial level. She is nearly finished in qualifying to be a certified dog trainer. She is an excellent source for training and problem solving.
Friends of Fox Terriers does not have an official Fox Terrier Club in Colorado but we sure do have a small army of friends of Fox Terriers. We try to meet informally once a month and discuss ideas, problem solve and provide moral support to those owning these breeds. This group incorporates pet owners, experts in conformation, agility and obedience.
Here's a story from Holly, one of our "foster parents."
This morning, while trying to dig out a plant I wanted to move, I managed to break the connection between the sprinkler system’s copper part and the plastic pipe part. That, of course, created an instant mud fountain shooting out of the ground, until I could run into the house and shut off the water to the sprinkler system.
When the geyser went into the air, of course our little miss terrier was right on the spot. By the time I got back to the yard from shutting off the water, she’d stuck her snout into the mess, halfway up to her eyes, and was sporting a look of sheer joy. I ran for the camera so you could see.
Never a dull moment! BTW, I’ve lost four pounds since Lady arrived—this is a full time job, and I’m not even thinking about eating during the day. Should we call it The WFT Diet and make a mint on Oprah?
