Our search began online, for reputable wire fox terrier (WFT) breeders. Having had some prior knowledge with our experience finding Casey, we could narrow the search. We knew who to contact, and how to verify the breeder's reputation for whelping healthy pups. We just had to find a litter with available puppies.
We began an e-mailing campaign, seeking information on available male WFT puppies. We were optimistic and hopeful throughout our efforts. The "wire-world", as we affectionately call them is a wonderfully close-knit group of people who promote the wellness and dignity of this breed. When an inquiry is made for a WFT puppy, and though that particular breeder may not have an available puppy they may be able to put you in touch with someone who does. This is the amazing networking power of the information highway, and dedicated community of people who promote the WFT breed.
We did not have to wait long before we were put in touch with a breeder in British Columbia, Canada who happened to have one male puppy left from a litter of six. She e-mailed us, with her phone number and we immediately contacted her. After a long chat and several e-mails containing photos and videos, and breeding history, we both knew this puppy would become our new family member.
Ultimately, pictures say more than words. Please enjoy the videos and photos we were sent of Colby's first moments of life in this great big world.
It just felt so right! All the pieces of our situation fit together like a finely crafted puzzle, we firmly belief all things happen for a reason and this was meant to be. Together we began to plan for his transition into our lives.
