Murphy's Story...
7/18/12 - I'VE BEEN ADOPTED!


ADOPTION FEE: $425


Fostered in North Carolina


Age: 2 years


Weight: 15 lbs.


7/1/12 - I am Murphy and I came to YHR from a shelter in Columbia, SC where I was dropped off without records, a tag, or anything really. I have taken to my given name very well in a short period of time which is to be expected because of my off-the-chart IQ (wink wink). I’m smart but I am very handsome too. My fur is more orange-ish due to the fact that I’m a Cairn Terrier. I’m still in my puppy phase and I love to play with other pups. Right now I’m playing with Riley in my foster home and we get along super great. I’m a bit bigger than him but I’m gentle. My buddy Riley needs a liver shunt so I’m praying for him!! As far as potty training goes, I do a great job of not doing my job in the house. I am also in great health with no problems to mention. Somebody once asked me if I could be anything in life what would it be? Well, have you ever seen a movie with a bear that stands up on its back legs? If I could, I would like to star in a movie as a little baby cub. I can stand and walk on my hind two feet very well and I even look like a baby cub. That’s my dream job right there. Until I hear from my agent in Doggywood though, I’m ready to find a family and entertain them to the max. I have lots of love and kisses to give. I want to be the star on your Doggywood walk of fame. Please keep Riley in your prayers, and ask for me when you fill out the adoption form – Murphy’s Law!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Charlotte 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 Charlotte, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Charlotte.

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