Elphaba's Info...

Elphaba's Story...
Elphaba (Delphie) was named after Elphaba in the Broadway musical, 'Wicked'. In the play, Elphaba sings a solo that includes these words: 'Every so often we long to steal to the land of what might have been.' Despite the fact that Delphie did not have the life she deserved in the past, she is very hopeful for the future. She is ready for your heart and home, and you will not find a sweeter dog than Delphie.
You would never know that the first years of her life were so 'wicked'. Delphie holds no grudges - she is not looking back. Foster Mom says that Delphie is very affectionate and comfortable with people. She is young for her age (just turned seven) - has puppy curiosity and playfulness without puppy 'manners'. She enjoys her walks on the leash.
In less than two weeks, she will be allowed to play freely in the back yard. Her Heartworm treatments are completed, and she is up to date on all shots. Delphie seems to do well with other dogs and is interested in their activities. She shows no aggression and does fine with the resident cat. She loves all people. She is coming along wonderfully with her potty manners. Delphie would enjoy living in a home with a fenced yard, but would do fine in an apartment in the city as well. She enjoys her lap time so much! She is doing great on the leash and loves her walks. All Delphie asks is that your heart is as full of love as hers is. Don 't wait too long for this little sweetheart. Make sure you have room for her favorite toy as well. She won't leave here without it.


Elphaba is being fostered in Topeka, Kansas 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

Elphaba, a Topeka 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 Topeka, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Topeka.

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