LEON IN CT's Story...

Leon has tested heart worm negative and is now ready for his forever home. As with Bradley, the need to keep Leon calm during treatment has limited his exposure to many situations so we're looking forward to slowly building his resistance and muscle tone, and learning a bit more about this very sweet boy. Leon is fairly low key and somewhat of a momma's boy, though he's comfortable with his foster dad, too. Leon's lost six pounds and is starting to look really good. He adores car rides and is always upbeat and wagging his tail. We're still working daily on the knots is Leon's coat but I'm hopeful with good nutrition and grooming we can get a bit harsher coat on him that's less prone to knotting. Everyone who has met Leon and Bradley, from the people who pulled them from the shelter, to the transport people who worked to get them to their foster home, to the Colonel Potter volunteer that kept them for a few days until their transport could be arranged thought they were the nicest, sweetest dogs they had met in a long time. Both can use some obedience training but I've rarely seen Cairns in foster care with so few issues. These boys are fantastic!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

LEON IN CT, a Whitesboro 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 Whitesboro, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Whitesboro.

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