We have a weakness for Wire Fox Terriers and when we heard that this little girl pictured above couldn’t find a home, we just had to adopt her from the American Terrier Rescue Association. (Our other dog looks a bit annoyed but he got over it.) These wonderful ATRA people rescue terriers that have been dumped by their owners – some are older, some have medical problems, but all are salvageable with a little effort and deserve to have nice lives. There’s nothing more fun than a terrier! We met an ATRA puppy called Belle that desperately needs surgery and we hope that you, dear readers, can find it in your heart to donate something.
