Watson's Info...

I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with dogs.

Watson's Story...
Watson is a 3-year-old male Cairn Terrier mix who weighs about 15 lbs. He has been at the shelter since May and is looking for the right forever home. Watson is great with all people, but he's very selective about his doggie friends. Some dogs he likes and is just fine with, and others he growls at. Watson doesn't do well with a kennel mate at the shelter, so he is now in the back of the shelter in a kennel all by himself and you'll need to ask to meet him specifically. He's still a good dog, though, and would make a wonderful pet for someone with patience and understanding. He seems to be shy at first, but once he gets to know someone, he is a friendly little guy who will sit in your lap and loves to go out for walks. Watson knows "sit" and is very treat motivated -- he will do anything for a treat! He also likes to chill out and lay at your feet and get tummy rubs.

You can meet Watson at the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services at 5480 Gaines St. San Diego, CA 92110. Hours are 9:30-5:30 Tues-Sat (closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays). When you go to the shelter, you'll need to ask for Watson because he's in the back! If you can, ask for Johnny, Dean, or Noelle to help you! Bring these ID numbers to ask for him:
My ID number is A1414015,
my necktag number is C490, and
my kennel number is C115.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Watson, a Vista 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 Vista, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Vista.

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