A home visit is part of our adoption process.


NOTE: We prefer to place Fox Terriers in homes within a 2-hour drive of Portland, Oregon, which includes SW Washington. We have a fellow rescue group that may be able to help us place a Fox Terrier in and around Seattle and the Puget Sound.

Our goal is to gather enough information so we can best match a Fox Terrier with your family.

7. We try to place Fox Terriers with owners that:

  • Will not leave the dog alone for more than 4 hours a day

  • Will have the dog as an inside dog (not left outdoors for extended periods of time)

  • Do not have children younger than 8 years old--and do not have grandchildren or friends who visit regularly with children younger than 8 years old

  • Understand that many Fox Terriers are prey driven and are prone to bolting and escaping

  • Understand that many Fox Terriers may not get along with other dogs in the home, on walks, or in a dog park.

  • Can provide the Fox Terrier with plenty of exercise and entertainment

  • Can provide the Fox Terrier with high quality dog food and regular veterinary care


If any of these don’t fit your situation or experience, tell us which ones are at issue and let us know why you would still be a good home for a Fox Terrier.
