Trisha in MO's Story...
This is Trisha. She's a petite little sweetie, at 11 pounds. When she came to our home, she was so shy she didn't exit her crate on her own for four days. She smelled terrible, and she jumped at every little sound. She wouldn't get near us if she could help it. Now, two weeks later, she is doing much better. We introduced her to our Cairn, Hazel. Hazel has really helped Trisha to come out of her shell. Trisha LOVES Hazel. She follows Hazel wherever she goes. She imitates everything that Hazel does. Now, Trisha comes bounding out of her crate every morning and hates to go back in it. She plays with Hazel and cuddles with me all day long. This is the most cuddly pup I have ever seen! If you go to pick her up she will cower and run. But if you sit quietly on the couch she'll timidly jump up and then snuggle into your lap for as long as you want. She's still jumpy. She'll run to you and wag her tail, but when she gets near you she'll remember what she's doing and run the other way. She's still getting used to people, and she's terrified of strangers. But she's getting better and she's shaping up to be one terrific pooch!


Trisha is being fostered in St. Louis, Missouri 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

Trisha in MO, 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.
