A beautiful smooth fox terrier was saved by big hearts and great teamwork! Jackie is a sweet-tempered 10 yr. old Smooth Fox Terrier was left alone in the world when her elderly owners passed away. As if that weren't enough to turn a girl's world upside down, the heirs were headed to town at the end of June to settle the estate, but before they arrived, they made sure to tell Jacqueline's caretaker to "put her down to make life less complicated".

Thank goodness for the caring next door neighbor (also a rescue volunteer with Min-Pin Rescue) who promptly took Jacqueline in for a few days and contacted AFTR! Thanks to special friends of AFTR, Mark and Tom, for fostering Jackie till a new home could be found.

Jackie was placed in a wonderful home and recently that clever dog sent Cammie an email to catch her up on things. This is what she had to say:

Hey Cammie, just wanted to let you know that I'm settling in with this human and he makes great peanut butter kongs for me. I think I like him enough to stop peeing on his bed. Here's me getting ready to get loved on! Also the human told me to tell you that he is sending you the chip tag paperwork to sign ( transferring me from you to him) and you need to sign it and send it back to him to process.
Cheers for now! There are chipmunks outside that I have to keep an eye on!

AFTR says "Thank you, Cammie and Skip!" Obviously Jackie is as in love with you as you are with her.

We love to share the success stories of our adoptions, because these dogs always remain in the hearts of the AFTR volunteers as one of our own. And knowing they're in the perfect home and loved, gives us all a feeling of joy!

And thank you to all of our supporters for your donations and support of AFTR. Your support means dogs like Jackie get a second chance at life. Thank you all!
