Success Stories

Vince

VinceVince was one hard-luck case, the product of a unscrupulous breeder and an early puppyhood of being tied outside and teased by kids. Vince was so afraid of strangers that he would grip on to people's clothing, pulling with all his might. His previous owners did their best to fix the damage, seeing behaviorists and trying different medicines, but the presence of their new baby and Vince's grabbing clothing gave them no choice but to re-home Vince.

Belle

BelleBelle's first owner cherished her until the day she died in a tragic accident in the summer of 2001, leaving Belle to her daughter. Unfortunately, the daughter could not keep Belle due to the fact that she already had two dogs of her own and a very busy lifestyle.

Sam

pa_samsuccessPlay it Again Sam, or Sam for short, was also part of the Sprucehill Kennel. When Ed Wolff, the owner of Sprucehill, unexpectedly died in 2001, only a few months after his wife Judith had died, American Fox Terrier Rescuers Dena and Dave Lebo-Funk, along with their fellow American Fox Terrier Club member Carol Stull, came to save 8-year old Sam, fostering and re-homing this sweet boy.

Cody

CodyThis sweet boy's mom went into a nursing home and no other family member could help in the summer of 2002. So Cody made the long trip across West Virginia to be fostered by an American Fox Terrier Rescue volunteer. Cody is such a cutie that it didn't take long to find the 12-year old a new home, Cody wiggling his furry behind into his new owner's heart within a matter of minutes during the home visit.

Susie

SusieBroadway Susie, was once a breeding girl, part of the Sprucehill Kennel. Suzie has been described by an adoring fan as a "four-legged, eight-nippled pot roast with a jet engine and a personality the size of a Mack truck." Her new mom, Cathy, tends to believe she's actually a person masquerading as a smooth fox terrier.

Jenny

JennySeveral months after Sue's beloved 14-year old Smooth died from cancer, she decided she needed another friend. After someone suggested rescue, she contacted an American Fox Terrier Rescue volunteer who then led her to a dog who had been one of the Sprucehill gang. Ed Wolff, the owner of Sprucehill Kennel, unexpectedly died in 2001, only a few months after his wife Judith had died. This left the Sprucehill gang of dogs looking for new homes. American Fox Terrier Rescuers Dena and Dave Lebo-Funk, along with their fellow American Fox Terrier Club member Carol Stull, came to save the day, fostering and re-homing all eight dogs.

Mitch

MitchMitch is a wonderful, wonderful boy who has captured our hearts and souls. We couldn't imagine life without him. He and our son, Michael, have deeply bonded; they run around the house madly chasing each other, finally falling into a pile of dog and boy, out of breath and in love with each other.
