Puppy Mill Auction
Another weekend and another puppy mill auction held in Southwest Missouri. They may call it a kennel sellout or reduction sale - but there is no doubt it is a puppy mill auction. Hundreds of dogs on the auction block, abused and mistreated and used for one purpose only - to breed and make puppies for the owner to sell for profit. Wire Fox Terrier Rescue Midwest was successful in rescuing eight beautiful Wire Fox Terriers from a recent auction. The misery these eight dogs lived and would have continued to live is over and they will now receive their veterinary work up and adopted to wonderful homes that will pamper and treat them as cherished pets.

The dogs are identified by a number - a crude tag cut from plastic, magic marker and string tied tightly around their necks.

Auction Flyer at right for Puppy Mill Breeders to Sell Dogs and the Auction House that encourages and makes a ton of money doing it.

Dempsey
Each of the 8 Wire Fox Terriers were so happy and grateful to be rescued and to be free. The cost to rescue these 8 Wire Fox Terriers came to $5,000. WFTRM must now give each one extensive veterinary care and would be truly grateful for any any and all donations to our Missouri Puppy Mill Rescue Fund.



Dempsey was born
December 1, 2010. He is such
a stud muffin and can see why
he was the leader of his harem
of girls in the puppy mill.
Everywhere we go I am stopped
and told how good looking he is.
He is the friendliest guy ever, putting his front paws on your shoulders and giving kisses. Dempsey is absolutely the most affectionate boy and loves following you around. So much so it is difficult taking his picture as he is 2 inches from your face. He loves to be loved on and petted and is a good listener seems to understand when you talk to him. Dempsey loves getting his breakfast and dinner and cannot wait for you to fill his bowl. He will explore the yard as he is very curious but really stays close trotting right alongside of you. He seems to like all the dogs here as well boys and girls. Dempsey arrived with a very matted and filthy coat and had to be cut very short. Because of the condition he was forced to live in, his skin is loaded with scabs and crusties. He is on antibiotics to clear this up and we are also giving him a medicated baths every couple of days. He is such a trooper standing still to be soapied up, waiting 10 minutes and then rinsed. He lets me comb and tend to his skin and coat without a peep or moving. This boy is such a sweetie and so very gentle. One cannot help but love him to pieces. He sleeps through the night, is not a barker at all and surprisingly is a very quick learner of leash walking. Dempsey is such a well behaved boy in and out of the home. He rides in the car like a champ and seems to enjoy travelling. He will need some house training as he was just neutered. His personality comes out each day and makes you smile whether watching what is grilling for dinner or picking up that little bunny toy and hopping around while squeaking it. Dempsey is a gem dandy and will make his forever home darn lucky!

OH my, Oh my here comes
Henley. Full speed ahead.
She is just full of exuberant,
happy energy. Henley is a
Puppy at heart and so
excited to be out of a cage,
in a puppy mill. Thankful
we found her. I can't imagine this adorable, Happy, curious, intelligent pup locked in a cage for life. Her papers say she was born 1-3-2014 but I personally think she is younger, maybe 8-9 months? She still has that famous Wire Fox Terrier puppy attitude. Play, Play and play some more, then she crashes and enjoys a long nap preferably on your lap or by your feet. She is determined to chew so I give her bully sticks and things she can chew on. She is so cute and comical I love her quizzical look. She is catching on fast to House training and leash walking. Henley is a very bright girl. Her favorite past time is chasing balls, birds, butterflies and anything that runs or moves. She seems to do well with other dogs but is like most girls a little on the bossy side. Crispin isn't so sure he wants her to stay too long. She is tiny, only 11 pounds. She has a nice wire coat and colors so far I haven't clipped her coat. I think she is adorable with the shaggy look she has going. Henley has been checked out at the vet. She has been declared in perfect health even a clear fecal, 4 DX Heartworm tested neg. no sign of any ear infection, teeth look wonderful, Shots current, micro chipped and Spay all finished. Little Miss Henley is ready to begin her Journey to a life and home of her own. This little lady will be best in an only dog home, big fenced yard and a family who isn't gone all day. I don't want Henley to spend any more of her days in a crate.

Lela
Lela was born 12-1-2010. A
former puppy mill girl who
joined WFTRM from an Auction.
Her Puppy mill name was
Gretchen but we decided new
 life deserves a new name. Miss
Lela loves her life as a companion, who lives in the home, has a fenced yard to play in and lots of things to check out. She enjoys smelling the flowers and playing in the fountains. She enjoyed her grooming day. She came in very filthy, smelly with huge mats. She stood like a trooper as I cut the mats off and groomed her. She loved the bath stood so still and just enjoyed the warm water. It felt so refreshing after so many years of neglect. She is very social, greets everyone she meets with a smile and gentle tail wag. Lela is not only a petite beauty but also a gentle, sweet, curious, loving girl. She is an easy girl to work with and has mastered the art of Leash walking. She keeps her crate clean so she is an easy dog to teach the ropes on House Training. She is an adult so her chewing days are over. She is curious about toys especially the squeak kind. She loves to curl up on a lap for a snooze. She enjoys being held, petted, talked to, cuddled and pampered. Lela is all about being loved. She is calm, gentle and does well with the other dogs. Lela is perfectly healthy. She has had through vet check including a Complete Blood panel, 4 DX Heartworm test, fecal check, Micro chipped, Spay and dental. Puppy mill life is hard but Lela managed to escape her previous fate unscathed. She is excited and happy to begin a new life as the Beloved Pet all dogs deserve to be. Lela is going to make someone very happy. Adopt her and you will be rewarded with many years of antics only a Wire Fox can provide.
