found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Meet Lauren! She's a Cairn & Silky Terrier puppy that is between 8-12 months old. She's adorable and weighs only 10 lbs.
Lauren is quiet, calm and loves being held, a perfect, portable companion.
Lauren is crate trained, gets along with other dogs and cats and loves everyone she meets!
If you are interested in adopted Lauren, please submit an Adoption Questionnaire at KenMarRescue.org
More info on Lauren:
Disposition: I am a sweet, playful very young lady. I love, love, love to cuddle and sit on your lap. I may get a little jealous if you are petting someone else but I can take it with a gentle reminder that I am not your one and only. (I am probably getting the first affection I’ve ever had). I will follow you room room to room. I am very shy with new people and may initially bark but with a gentle approach I will quickly be ready to meet the new person. I bond quickly and deeply! I get along with both cats and dogs so no worries if you have a cat. I might chase a little but only because I want to play, not because I mean them any harm.
House Training: I am house trained but need to be watched carefully since I am still a bit bewildered about all the changes in my life. I probably should not yet be allowed to sneak off into another room unless I have recently been out (I have had one accident in my foster home when I ‘snuck’ into the guest bath) but I hadn’t been out for a while. (In any new situation like going to a forever home, consider the dog not house trained UNTIL she learns your schedule and you learn hers).
Sleep: I sleep all night if I have been out before bedtime. I sleep most happily in your bed but also am happy in a crate with a comfy bed if I am near you. I am still very young and get lonely.
Barking: I bark only when appropriate. I am not a yappy dog but will bark at UPS or the mailperson, doorbell or meeting a dog on a walk.
Commands: I haven’t been taught to sit or stay yet but I am very smart and will learn quickly. I so recently out of the shelter and am adjusting to so much that my foster thought she’d leave this to my forever home. Despite not knowing commands, I do understand ‘NO!’. I am a great candidate for a simple obedience class.
Door Darting: I am not a door darter BUT I am very curious and very small so I could easily slip out the front door while you hold it open. My foster is working with a squirt bottle (water only) to stop my curiosity in this area. She goes outside and I am leashed inside just long enough to try to get out the door and when I look out, I get a squirt in the face. Yuck! I’ll learn this fast! My new family should probably do this as well so I’ll be safe and never get lost again.
Walks/Car: I LOVE walks and do pretty well in my harness. I do pull some but am easily controlled. I walk with my foster’s dog and we walk side by side. (Lauren would do well in a halter that leads from the front).
I enjoy and am well behaved in the car. I should be restrained, not because I misbehave but I am so small that I could become a flying object. I do MUCH better with a doggy harness/seat belt than the transport carrier. I seem to get seasick in the closed carrier but am great in the seat belt!
Toys: I LOVE toys, the more the merrier! I like to chase squishy balls, shake stuffed animals and tug. I do unstuff stuffed animals so my foster mom thinks I do better with the “unstuffed’ stuffed toys sold for dogs. She’ll send my favorite with me. I am still a pup so love to chew and need to be directed to what is appropriate. I LOVE my deer antler and it will come with me. I must admit I have been known to chew the corner of MY bed but never furniture. My chewed bed will come with me (love that bed).
Feeding: I am a good eater. Currently I am eating grain free wet
(“Against the Grain” pulled chicken wet food and Bil-Jac grain free adult kibble) but any high quality grain free is fine. I am a pup and still need to grow so I am allowed to eat as much as I want twice a day (and sometimes a snack).
Medical: I am spayed, had all my shots and am micro-chipped. I am a healthy little girl who will probably be around 11-12# when I finish growing. I weigh 10# now but am still a little underweight. I probably won’t get any taller. PS I don’t shed!!!
From my foster mom: Lauren is a sweetie; cheerful, grateful, eager to love you after 5 minutes of initial shyness. She will follow you everywhere and likes to stay close. She sleeps in my bedroom and I think she might whimper (as a pup does) if she had to sleep in a room by herself though I am sure she would adapt. This little girl is eager for human contact and lets you know you are her one and only. She will make some family a wonderful furry forever member.
