Who We Are:
are breeders and pet owners who want to make sure that no Smooth

To prevent the cruelty, abuse or neglect of fox
To enhance the lives of our adopters by adding
unconditional love to their lives
To provide rescue services, rehabilitation, and
medical treatment for fox terriers
To place rescued dogs in appropriate homes
To furnish information, education and support to
fox terrier owners.
Rescue volunteers find Fox Terriers
in public and private shelters. Some owners contact us directly
when they can no longer keep a pet. If an owner
contacts us, we do everything we can to help the family and the
Fox Terrier stay together.

Sometimes the owners are moving overseas or across the country.
Occasionally, the owners purchased a Fox Terrier without
knowing much about the breed or without thinking about the time
commitment that dog ownership requires. In a few cases, a
Fox Terrier is in rescue because of abuse, and special care is taken
before an adoption can take place.
