Rescue Me ID: 14-07-28-00509Susie (female)

Cairn Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This young lady is brought to you by the letter 'S': Sweet, sociable, silly, smart and sensational!!! Susie is an absolute sweetheart who was rescued on her last day from a high kill shelter, and that also makes her story a little sad because whatever happened to her in the past has also left Susie a little skittish in some circumstances. Susie is generally a very happy, very friendly and very affectionate little girl who LOVES playing with anyone who will have her!! Be sure you love terriers because she has just enough curiosity to make a very charming and clever companion, guaranteed to make any terrier lover smile! She LOVES her tummy ... (Read More)rubbed and will flip over if there is the slightest chance of getting one. She walks well on a leash and she loves car rides, so she'll be a great companion to take anywhere you go. But sometimes Susie seems startled by sudden strange noises -- fireworks, loud voices, banging. She'll startle easily if someone starts to pet her without her actually seeing them come towards her first. And she freaks in a crate, as though she may have been left in one far too long and far too often. Her foster mom is working with her to retrain her to the crate, leaving her for a few hours at a time with a tasty treat, and she's getting better. Although Susie is housetrained, she also has separation anxiety so crating is a way of keeping her (and the environment) safe while her people are away. Because of this, Susie will need a loving, patient, and experienced home who can continue to reassure her that her new life has begun and that it will keep getting better. (She's been fine with visiting children but she will be best in a quiet all-adult home.) We know Susie is all too happy to put her past behind her as well. Susie is about 2 years old, she weighs 20 pounds and she is a healthy girl. If you have the patience and love in your heart to help this girl live life to the fullest, please visit (Less)

Cairn Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Brady! We believe he is some kind of a terrier mix. He has longer fur on his back and and wire hair on his face. The picture is him right after grooming. This little guy has come a very long way in the time since he came into our rescue. He's still a work in progress and will need someone with time and patience, but he's surely getting there! He's currently looking for a one- or two-person forever home where his family will give him time to relax and settle in, and continue to work to gain his trust Brady loves adults and loves children too! He LOVES getting his neck scratched, going for walks, rides in the car, cuddling on your lap ... (Read More)and he is very well mannered. Brady is just a happy little guy! He is learning about cats. Brady will follow you around and when he gets excited he spins. Brady likes balls and squeak toys. He really has a cute personality!! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cairn in Connecticut
    Cairn Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. The Cairn Terrier is a shaggy, spunky little dog with tons of energy and personality. The indefatigable Cairn is full of energy and is very lovable. Cairns love to dig, chase, and bark. Cairns are very active and need plenty of exercise but adapt well to apartment life. Cairns like to do tricks and are very trainable. Cairns are wonderful with children. A Cairn can be very territorial and should be watched for a tendency to take on much larger dogs if it feels threatened.

    Cairns have been around since at least 1500. Toto in the Wizard of Oz was a Cairn Terrier. Cairns are named after piles of stones used for land markers in Scotland. Cairns were used to hunt small animals living among the rocks. Cairns barely shed.
