Tess was adopted on February 7, 2015 by the McAllister family of San Diego. Tess was formerly Trixie. She came with her sister, Buffy all the way from Las Vegas where, just before Christmas, they were both surrendered to be euthanized.
We were fortunate that an extraordinary Airedale rescuer, Rusty La France, was on the spot to help. She rescued the girls and arranged transport to us.
Now Tess is having a great life with the McAllisters who love her. According to the latest report, Tess is settling in, is well behaved, and is adorable.
It is wonderful how a loving and understanding home can transform a terrier, who once was labeled a problem and callously given up, into a fabulous companion for life!
Tess had been confined to the backyard with her sister where out of boredom, they squabbled and, for lack of attention, got into trouble. Just look at her now!
