Meet ETHAN! This little cutie is easy, easy, easy! He is about 3 years old, super sweet, very friendly, great with people and kids, and great with other dogs. He is fine on a leash and needs moderate exercise. He is almost house-trained, but we just got him, so he needs time to adjust as all dogs do in new homes. We happened to be in the right place at the right time - we were at Animal Welfare League when Ethan was given up by his owner who could no longer afford to care for him. He was just looking around, wagging his tail, and seemed so easy going. He had some mattes, an ear infection, and a hot-spot at the base of his tail. We immediately took him to our vet and took care of his ailments. What a wonderful dog! Ethan is a snuggler and also likes to play. He is just a fantastic little guy and we don't anticipate having him long, so if you are interested in him, please fill out an application ASAP!

NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is no further than 75 miles from Chicago. This is because we PERSONALLY do home visits for every single dog / puppy. Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) and we have had him / her for a longer time. We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ethan, a Chicago Cairn Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cairn Terrier for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Cairn Terrier 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 breeders who help with Cairn Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
