Facts about Samantha

  • Breed: Cairn Terrier/Maltese Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 68075

Samantha was living in a crate with three other pups in a shed until she came to us. She is so sweet and gentle, and is happy to be alive. She is very timid, and would not do well in a home with a lot of noise and chaos. She would be happiest with a family who can let her be the lap dog she is intended to be! Samantha is about 1 year old and is not likely to get much bigger than she is. she is crate trained, but does still have accidents if left unsupervised outside of the crate. She also pees when nervous at first. Would you like to meet this tiny pup and get some of her little kisses? is the first step! Her adoption fee is $275 and she is fully vetted. She is being fostered in Central Illinois.
Samantha, Cairn Terrier & Maltese Mix has been shared from Shelter Exchange.

About ARROW Animal Rescue Revolution on Wheels

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a family run no kill foster based dog rescue located in Normal, IL with foster homes all across the state of Illinois. We rescue dogs from animal control and animal shelters in Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Illinois and Iowa with more states being added all the time. We also accept owner relinquishments. We fully vet all of the dogs in our rescue, place them in loving foster homes, often with other dogs, cats and kids. We find them forever homes through sites like this as well as Facebook, and Petfinder. We have been involved in rescue for 3 years with other rescues but felt that we would have made other decisions when it comes to euthanizing, how dogs were being treated, and the adoption process. We thought we could do a better job. We only euthanize dogs in our rescue if they are in pain or suffering and cannot be helped. We provide training to dogs that need this prior to adoption.

We also have a pet matching service so if you don't see what you are looking for on our rescue page, please message us and we can help you find the perfect pet, have it transported to us, vet it, and make it available for adoption to you!

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must fill out an application to adopt on our website. We call all references listed including veterinarian, personal, and condo board or landlord, and our goal is to approve application within 5 days. You are welcome to meet any of our dogs in their foster homes once you have an approved application. Since we are a small family run rescue with a few volunteers at times when there is a high volume of applications it may take longer than 5 days to process your application. You are free to contact us at any point at to check on the status of your application.

After application is approved, we do a home visit either prior to or at the time of the adoption. Minimum adoption donations is $275 for adults and $350 for puppies 9 months or under. Some dogs have sponsorships by donors which will reduce the cost for the adopter. Payment by Paypal to or in cash at the time of the adoption.

There is an adoption contract stipulating that you return the dog to our rescue if for any reason you are not able to keep them. The dog's microchip will be registered to the rescue for the life of the dog. You will be required to keep your pup on heart worm preventative year around.
