Poor Olivia was found as a stray in the Midwest in March 2002 and she was one very sick little girl. Among other things she had skin infections and terrible ear infections. Cathie, Olivia's new mom, contacted American Fox Terrier Rescue volunteer when she saw Olivia's picture posted on the web site, but at that time her foster mom had decided to keep her. Cathie was disappointed because she had felt a connection with Olivia as soon as she saw her picture. She continued to look for a new foxy friend but nothing ever quite seemed right.
Then at the end of August 2002, American Fox Terrier Rescue contacted Cathie again with the news that the foster mom could not keep Olivia. A American Fox Terrier Rescue volunteer travelling from the Midwest to the Northeast brought Olivia to another rescue volunteer in New York to get her extra medical help and to stabilize her condition. Cathie then picked Olivia up on Columbus Day weekend.
Olivia still has a lot of problems but Cathie and her family have done a great job of getting her back to health. Her new mom firmly believes that this sweet little girl did not deserve the life she has had up to now. Olivia is finally home and is very loved. Cathie feels that there was some higher power involved in getting Olivia to where she belongs. That picture on the web told Cathie that this was her girl and now she's at home with her new family and her new foxy friend, Duncan!
