MAXWELL's Story...
Meet Maxwell...known as Max to his foster family was rescued from high kill San Bernardino City shelter. A handsome gentleman that adores children, his people, toys and other K9 buddies. Max is about a year and a half old. We believe him to be a pure bred Cairn terrier. Max is neutered, up to date on immunizations and is microchipped.

From his foster mommy:
Max is a year and six month old cairn terrier who is a complete love bug! He has been wonderful with children and greets anyone who enters the house. He is full of energy and has brought the youth out of my two senior dogs when playing. He loves his car rides, does not want baths to be over with, kisses anyone who will snuggle and allow his kisses, and wants to be in your lap when it's time to relax. He is great on a leash, potty trained, and motivated with treats. He is crate trained and sleeps in his crate at night. He does look for ways out, so a secure yard is a MUST!!!. Max will make a fabulous addition to a lucky family..

We require an application, home check, contract, spay/neuter or deposit (if too young for spay/neuter at time of adoption) and adoption donation. MAXWELL 's adoption donation is $250.00

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MAXWELL, a Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo, or seeking a Cairn Terrier dog from a breeder in Mission Viejo.

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