Trixie's Info...

Trixie's Story...
Hey there I'm Trixie. My foster home consists of two canine friends, 2 young children, and a foster mom that holds it all together. I have met numerous dogs of all energy levels and sizes and have gotten along great with all of them. On a scale of 1-10 for friendliness, I think I would get a 15. I love every person and animal I meet and my tail never stops wagging. The fastest way to my heart is a belly rub but treats also don't hurt. I'm a small girl at 25 pounds. I can fit in your lap but I would also love going on adventures to dog friendly spots. I'm super relaxed in a car and I love going for walks with my foster family after dinner. I'm waiting to fly into my forever home soon, and can use my bat ears to help me get there.
All of our pets start their journey in Memphis Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted.

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you submit an application immediately to start the adoption process. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, ALIVE Rescue Memphis is operated 100% by volunteers. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well educated decision from well qualified staff.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Trixie, a Chicago Cairn Terrier/Fox Terrier (Wirehaired) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cairn Terrier/Fox Terrier (Wirehaired) for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Cairn Terrier/Fox Terrier (Wirehaired) dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cairn Terrier/Fox Terrier (Wirehaired) breeders who help with Cairn Terrier/Fox Terrier (Wirehaired) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
