Andover in OR's Story...
Okey-dokey people! This foster home of mine has been just swell but I am ready for my forever home! Foster Mom calls me sweet boy, Mr. Happy, happy go lucky, little sweetie-pie and I even heard the Foster Dad call me his little pumpkin once. (Shhh, he wouldn’t like it if I told anyone about that). Each time we go on a walk I enjoy it more and more. I didn’t get to go on walks before I came into Colonel Potter, you see. I am also learning how to be around other dogs, even though I get very jealous of them and don’t like to share toys. Sometimes I will play chase with the other dog here, but not if it gets too rough because I am just a little guy.
Special message from foster Mom: Dovey, as we call him, continues to be a loving and sweet little companion. He sleeps nicely in his crate at night and just ADORES going for a walk. A home without another dog would be just fine for him as he really loves to be around his person and can get quite jealous. With time and patience this is something that could possibly be changed. He also will need a home with a secure fence, as he is quite capable of squeezing through small spaces. He is so stimulated by his new environment and not being in a cage, he just wants to explore, explore, explore.


Andover is being fostered in Portland, Oregon 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

Andover in OR, 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.
