Heather in MI's Story...
Allow me to introduce myself. I am Heather, one of Colonel Potter’s adorable new kids. I was rescued from a breeding facility, and now I am happily enjoying my freedom. I have beautiful, thick cream-colored wheaten fur and I love to be petted. I would like to tell you how old I am, but I am having a hard time remembering when my birthday is! The vet thought I was about 5 or 6 years young. I am such a sweet girl and I just love to be loved. I will sit pretty on my back legs and ask to be petted, but don’t worry, I don’t pester anyone!

I am very curious and playful. I like to run around the house with my foster Cairn sister, Lexi. She usually runs to go see something or someone in the house so of course I hurry and tag along after her to see what all the fuss is about! I am very quiet, I have only barked once the whole time I have been at my foster home. I am content just to go exploring through the house, looking for things to add to my “collection”. My collection is in my X-pen, and it really is a very big nest of all my favorite things. So far my nest consists of (or I have tried to make it consist of) shirts, shoes, towels, tennis balls, my leash, my harness, and STUFFIES! I’ve never had stuffies before, but let me tell you, they are the best! I have dragged every stuffy that’s in the house into my X-pen (there’s about a dozen of them here). I carry them around, or I bury them, or I quietly chew the “life” out of them. Oh yeah, and do you know what else I like to do? I like to chase around tennis balls! If you throw them, I will chase after them so fast. Sometimes I don’t bring them back and try to take them to my X-pen. If no one is around to play with me then I will toss the ball myself or play with a stuffy, I am good at entertaining myself, and I will entertain you by just watching me!


Heather is being fostered in Milan, Michigan in a PRIVATE FOSTER HOME but we allow our dogs to be adopted out all over the United States and Canada!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Heather in MI, a Medina 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 Medina, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Medina.

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