Wire Fox Terriers and Dog Needs

Wire Fox Terriers are a wonderful breed of dog. Here is my latest painting of a Wire Fox that will be listed on ebay.

The Wire Fox in my painting has a forever home where he is a full family member. His family takes excellent care of him. I wish all dogs were as lucky as he is.

All dogs, have some basic needs. A "need" is something that dogs have to have in order to survive and thrive. Water, food and shelter are basic needs. All dogs need fresh water, food and a place to get out of the sun in the summer and the cold in the winter. After these basic survival needs are met, they need a pack. Dogs are pack animals. They need interaction from their packs. Humans become part of their dog's pack. Many people don't understand how harmful it is to ignore and isolate a dog. Make sure that you and your family take time for your dog. He needs your leadership and your attention so that he knows he is an accepted member of your pack.

Thankfully, there are a number of individuals and animal charities that help the homeless and discarded animals. A special "hats off" to Vernita for helping Brooke!!!! Please see for more information about the charities who support these needy animals.
