Furby's Story...
Furby is the prettiest little boy. He is approx 3 yrs and 26 lbs. He looks like a cairn terrier mix. He is just a darling dog. When we first rescued him, we noticed that he walked rather stiffly on his back legs and they were bowed, like he had been riding a horse a long time! The vet did x rays and could see nothing wrong, but felt he may have a disc problem. So we had the neurologist check him out. She recommended cage rest for 4 weeks to see if that helped...after 4 weeks he was still the same so we decided to do an MRI. He has evidence of two chronic disk herniations. The neurologist felt that no surgery was needed at this time as he is not in pain, the surgery would probably not be worthwhile. However, there is always a chance in the future that he may need surgery or have more disk issues . The good news is that he is a very low energy dog and trots around the yard fine with the other dogs, but does not run and play to much, so his risk of more injury is lesser. He is a really sweet dog, has a winning personality and is going to be a great companion for someone. We would prefer an adult home. We do have the full report from the neurologist for anyone to review.

The total adoption donation of $475 and includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration. The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. .

Just as a note, if you are in Massachusetts and are adopting directly from Texas rather than from a local foster, there are new quarantine laws in effect. All rescues must be quarantined 48 hours at a state run facility, and in addition, a second interstate health certificate is required to be issued by a Massachusetts vet. This new law adds an additional cost of $125.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Furby, a Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Woonsocket.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket paves the way for another one to be saved.
