Humperdink's Story...
Humperdink was found as a stray so we cant be sure of his background but he sure looks like a cairn terrier. Humperdink is 16 lbs, neutered, up to date on vacs and heartworm negative. The vet estimates he is 5 yrs old. Humperdink is being fostered in Chattanooga, TN but is waiting to travel for the perfect home. He is used to an older child (11) but we have not seen him with younger kids. Humperdink must have a home where he will be an indoor dog and leash walked as he has shown signs of being a digger - probably why he was found as a stray in the first place. There are 2 bigger dogs in his foster home and he is fine with them, but he prefers the company of his human. There is also a cat and he pays no attention to the cat - but the cat is not one to run from him - we are not sure if he would give chase if it did.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Humperdink, a Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Portsmouth.

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