I don’t know what it is about fox terriers but as soon as we get one in and we share its profile online its reserved. I know that they are affectionate, loyal and fun dogs who are also very cute and if they happen to be female then they seldom have long to wait at the SPA
Bulle arrived at the end of August and was reserved very quickly. Today her pound time was up and after a visit to the vets to be sterilised, off she went with her new family!
If you do see a dog who you are interested in, either online or whilst touring the refuge, even although its ten days pound time isn’t up you can still reserve it. There is a risk that the owners will turn up and claim the dog but if you don’t reserve it someone else may pip you at the post.
To reserve a dog, all we ask for is your contact details and a cheque for half of the adoption fee. This isn’t cashed until you pick pay the balance when you collect your dog.
For all female pups who are too young to be sterilised we ask for a 200 euro ‘cheque de cation’. When you adopt one of our female pups you agree to get her sterilised so the ‘cheque de caution’ is our incentive to ensure that this actually happens.
Before we did this lots of people did promise to sterilise their pups when old enough but then you heard the usual ‘oh she has had a little accident’ could you take 6 pups?
Please sterilise you dogs and promote sterilisation amongst your friends. There are so many myths about sterilisation that it’s only through education that we can control the future doggy population.
