I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.


Sam Malone is a complicated guy. He was surrendered to a shelter to be put to sleep. The shelter must have seen something in him worth saving and contacted rescue. Sam had untreated dry eye and a nasty attitude. We don't know how long Sam went without treatment but we do know he felt he was in danger when we tried to treat his eyes. This is something he'll need done multiple times throughout the day for the rest of his life. After many months Sam and I figured out how best to get this task done with minimum fuss. But there was something else going on. It wasn't until we didn't see it any longer that we realized he had a bad attitude. Over time Sam learned to trust and give and receive love. We brought an excellent trainer in to evaluate and help me better understand and work with Sam. Sam has beautiful house manners and is housebroken. Today Sam's a well adjusted, happy, healthy guy. He great on leash, loves toys and, after an initial warm up, is fine with other dogs.

SAM MALONE is being fostered in PORTLAND, CONNECTICUT 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

SAM MALONE 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.
