Here’s how your Petster vote helped...
I want to thank all my Petster friends who worked so hard to get in the votes for Fox Terrier Rescue. I especially want to thank Petster for initiating this contest that will benefit so many neglected & abused animals, giving them that chance to find a loving forever home.
I am a lucky puppy because I came from a responsible breeder, who was very particular about where I was going -- boy, did my mom have to jump through a few hoops herself to get her paws on me! hehe!
There are too many others of my breed that have not had such a good lifestart. All too often, these pups are the ’product’ of puppymills. The saddest part of this story are the dogs that are left behind, sentenced to a life of producing litter after litter.
We had a horrible example of this last November right here in my hometown. We Wire fox terriers knew that we had to help, but it is a little hard when you are a dog without your own bank account, so we begged our friends at Fox Terrier Rescue to come to the aid of these wires & we begged our own doggie parents & their friends to do all that they could to make sure that this story would have a happy ending.
All the surviving dogs have new homes & I want to show you how one puppymill victim is doing today -- almost one year after she was rescued from the horrors of life as a puppymill dog.
Her new name is Honeybee & this is what her new mom has to say about Honeybee & her friends...
spite of their terrible puppymill experiences and various on-going
health problems. They seem to have utterly forgotten the past.
Witnessing that has been a profound experience for us humans."
It is almost impossible to imagine the barbaric treatment of mill dogs. Wire fox terriers have been found in puppymills with teeth pulled & eyes put out so that they will not fight over the meager scraps of food. PLEASE do not support the growth of this industry by buying your pet from a pet store.
