Lavern in BC's Story...
Lavern has made brilliant progress in her foster home. She is a very pretty 15 pound, wheaten girl, who can now run up and down stairs, eat cheese from my hand, ride in the car, walk on leash, hang out with the 2 resident Cairns, and ask for skritches and tummy rubs. She has earned the right to the run of the house; I just have to be sure that I know what her bladder schedule is. She is a reserved, very observant lady who has learned so much in the past few weeks that I am looking forward to seeing what she accomplishes next. She now bounces out of her crate in the morning, and gets all frisky when we come back in the house from our walks.
She will make a wonderful companion for someone who enjoys being stopped on the street for chats with everyone who sees her as she is SO pretty. She asks for and expects nothing, but treats everything that comes her way, including affection, as gifts from heaven. She has grown taller since arriving, and her gorgeous brown eyes now exude trust and loyalty. If you want a crash-about, ball chaser, this is not the dog for you, but if you want a demure, gentle, polite and appreciative soul, you could love Lavern.


Lavern is being fostered in Gibson, British Columbia 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

Lavern in BC, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Portland.

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