We have an 8-year-old wire fox terrier named Max, and he has been a great dog for us. He has been neutered and his vaccinations are up to date. But we have two kids now (3 and 6 months), and Max doesn't get the attention he deserves anymore. I'd rather find him a home where he would get the love and attention he needs. He is usually housetrained, but he has started peeing in the house lately and has already caused some damage to our brand new hardwood floors. He had a doggy door at our previous house, so he's used to being able to go in and out at will.
Max has recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. He just has to take a little pill twice a day, and a 3 month supply only costs $17. He has stayed frequently with my brother who has two dogs (a boxer and a mixed breed terrier, both females), and gets along with them great. He goes with us to my parents house, and they have a male welsh terrier and a female airedale, and he does well with the female, but has problems with the male.
Teresa's comments: I met Max last night & visited with his owners. He has SEVERE storm phobia. If he is crated, he pulls on the wire with his teeth; consequently most, if not all, of his canines are broken. The owners have him under the care of their veterinarian who prescribed tranquilizers for him during storms. They report that he does just fine during storms now that he's been given them. He is a very loving dog & quite energetic for an 8yr. old. He played & scampered about when he met me. He then settled down & just chilled out on the living room floor.
**Also since being put on thyroid pills, he's drinking less frequently and the owners report that he has had very few accidents in the house too.
If you are interested in finding out more about Max or meeting him, please contact the owner, Kami, directly. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org

All dogs represented by American Fox Terrier Rescue are spayed or neutered prior to placement, unless there are valid health reasons preventing the procedure (i.e., puppies under six months of age). For those adopting a dog that is not neutered or spayed due to these health reasons, an American Fox Terrier Rescue volunteer will work closely with you, checking with you and your vet to ensure the procedure is done on a timely basis.
