FRODO IN WA's Story...

There comes a time in foster mom's life when she comes to the conclusion that her little foster may be smarter than she is. Little Frodo was picking up little rocks and bringing them into the house, chewing on the rock. He knows 'trade' so foster mom would instantly say 'trade' and Frodo would drop his rock, then foster mom would give him a yummy treat and pick up the rock and throw it away. After about the 10th rock, it dawned on me that he was playing games with me. Frodo was doing this to get the treat he knew was coming when he dropped his rock. How did I realize this? When he came in and I did not realize immediately he had a rock and he came over and stood in front of me and chewed on it a little to let me know he had a rock in his mouth! Does he still get his treat? You betcha! Cannot having him chewing on rocks! Is he enjoying this game? You betcha!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

FRODO IN WA, 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.
