    Default Mini foxy to give away

    We have a one year old male mini fox terrier to giveaway. Have been looking after him for a friend who has decided he doesn't want him back great little dog and is wonderful with kids and other dogs. Very obedient, sits and comes when called.

    Hi Mattrach1011. Have you had a look at this website - Help! I need to rehome my pet! | PetRescue it has some great info on rehoming pets. Is the dog desexed? I would recommend if he is not getting him neutered and then selling him for the price of the surgery. That way he won't end up going somewhere horrible (eg puppy farmer) and won't go to someone who see's "oh free dog, I'll get that" but then isn't able to provide for the dog. Unfortunately when people say the dog will be going to a great home, it can actually be quite the opposite.

    Maybe contact some rescue organisations in your area as well, they may be able to help. And if he came from a breeder, they may also want him back.

    Good luck finding a home for him.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Thanks. Couldn't actually figure out where to list on the site you listed. He is not desexed but we aren't really prepared to do so as the dog isn't really ours. He is a great dog for a family so hoping to find him a home soon

    In that case I would definitely get in touch with some of the rescue organisations in your area and explain the situation. The danger that he will end up in a puppy farm is very real. Especially with a small breed like that.

    I think you can only advertise on the petrescue website as a rescue organisation? And I don't think they allow free dogs for the reasons mentioned here.

    I know it is not your dog, but you obviously care about him. To ensure that he goes to the right home and gets the life he deserves, it is necessary to very carefully vet the new owners and make sure he does eventually get desexed. The rescue organisations can most likely help you with this or at least give you advice on how to ensure he goes to the right home and doesn't end up having a miserable life with an unethical breeder.

    Good luck! I love mini-foxies. (But unfortunately am not looking for a new dog)

    As Beloz said, it's mostly for rescue organisations but it has good info on how to rehome. If it was me i would start finding some rescue groups to help.

    Ask your friend for a letter stating they no longer want the dog. To help make sure he is going to be neutered arrange to meet new owners at vet surgery and they cannot have him until it's all done and paid for. If they won't pay now then chances are they won't pay later either, so they don't get the dog. I know there are sometimes programs that subsidise desexing of pets through local charities and councils if money is an issue look into these options too.

    Where do you live? it might help if we knew what state you were in so we could list some animal welfare groups in your area that could help you out. If your in QLD there is an organisation call Best friends animal rescue Best Friends Animal Refuge Rescue Gold Coast Brisbane Queensland Australia - Index who will let you list the dog through their private adoptions. I'm sure they could also perhaps help you out with de-sexing if your explain your situation.

    A good idea would also be to get it in writing that your friend relinquishes ownership of the dog ... you dont want them turning around after all the effort saying you gave their dog away
