Daisy's Story...
We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable young pup. Daisy is the kind of girl who snuggles in, loves you up and then puts her head on your shoulder. She's so sweet (while being initially shy) and truly kind with every possibility open to her. That's the case unless a dog like Daisy is in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space or on the streets hiding in the shadows. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great rescuer in Tijuana, Mexico for saving Daisy from abuse and certain euthanasia. She could see that her temperament was so sweet and her need so great that she couldn't turn her back on this very special pup. Daisy was immediately brought to be vetted, given the appropriate vaccinations, spayed, granted a health certificate and brought to a dog-loving foster to begin her education as a cherished house dog.

When we think of rescue, our thoughts don't usually go onto the tough streets of Tijuana. But these forgotten dogs deserve our help every bit as much as their US counterparts. They all have been used for opportunistic either breed and discard or to sell as a puppy to a Mexican mill or rich tourists. Virtually all of them have lived on the streets and survived by learning to be social. They love people because compassionate tourists were their means of survival. They can sit in any language and fit quietly into any scene to earn a treat or discarded meal.

This was the life waiting for Daisy...just 9 - 12 months old and approximately 12 lbs. This is such a perfect size to be able to accompany her family just about anywhere and fit right in due to her great temperament. Daisy is already starting to understand that sweet, cuddly and cooperative behavior makes great things happen in life. She was one of the extremely lucky young dogs to master her socialization skills at a very early age and endear herself to the US rescuers. There was no way that Daisy was going to be left behind! We all had a clear picture of this very sweet and fun-loving pup in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes her for life.

As Daisy becomes comfortable in her home, she will become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with her behavior, the more she will shine with her accomplishments.

We would like to see Daisy in a home that includes her in family time and activities (and some lap or couch-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart dog like Daisy and teaches them the skills to fit into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation.

Daisy would also be a wonderful companion for active retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Daisy would enjoy another gentle dog to play with...she's so sweet and gentle as she puts her positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend.

Daisy was identified as a Cairn Terrier/Border Terrier mix by her Tijuana rescuer. This is difficult to determine with certainty, but we can definitely see both adorable and engaging breeds in this very sweet dog.

Daisy appears to be a non-shedding (or lightly shedding) girl with the cottony-soft hair that speaks of her breed mix. Daisy will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep her hair healthy and matt-free.

Daisy will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Saturday 3/19/16. Applications are currently being accepted for our very sweet girl with the dark, expressive eyes. If interested in this adorable ...and often very fun and entertaining companion, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Daisy, a Boulder Cairn Terrier/Border Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cairn Terrier/Border Terrier for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Cairn Terrier/Border Terrier dog from a breeder in Boulder.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boulder 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 Boulder 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/Border Terrier breeders who help with Cairn Terrier/Border Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
