Cairn Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Dewey is a sweet and playful 2 year old Cairn Terrier mix (with what? who knows!). He's probably around 20-25 lbs. Dewey's foster parents report that he is a great house guest. He loves playing tug of war and chase with his foster brother (and would love to have a canine companion in his forever home). Dewey is energetic, as is to be expected for his young age, but not overly so. He'll run and play, but then he'll be ready to curl up on the couch with you. He's actually first and foremost a huge cuddle bug. Dewey also loves going on walks and visiting with strangers on the street (though he could use some work on not pulling while on ... (Read More)leash). His fosters live in a busy area and he seems just fine with all of the city noises. Dewey doesn't know any tricks yet- except going in his crate! When you open up the door, he'll walk right in (and will sleep quietly through the night). Dewey is completely crate trained and is working on his house breaking. (Less)

    Murphy is an incredibly sweet, handsome, spry and snugly, 25-pound, 14-year-old, male Cairn Terrier looking for a loving guardian. Murphy was brought to Chicago Animal Care and Control to be euthanized. When volunteers at the shelter took a look at him ... they said he has years left of love. He's a tad bit arthritic and has an eye infection, but he is super spunky, happy and so very loving. In the studio, Murphy snuggled up to me and then rolled over for belly rubs. He has personality plus and deserves to enjoy being part of a loving family for his golden years. Murphy is a great dog who appears to be housebroken, has good house manners, ...

Rescue Me ID: 13-08-20-00234Dora (female)

Cairn    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Dora is a very beautiful, smart and opinionated, three-year-old, female Cairn Terrier looking for a loving guardian. Poor Dora was dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control when her family no longer wanted her. We don't know how she was raised or what she went through, but she needs a very special, patient, understanding and dog-experienced family. She is an utterly adorable, independent little girl, who enjoys playing with her toys and receiving attention - on her own terms. Dora knows how to sit on command and if you pull out a treat her tail wags happily. She takes treats nicely from your fingers. Wherever she came from, she was not ... (Read More)accustomed to being touched and handled. She is affectionate with the people that she knows and loves. But, there are certain places that even those that she loves cannot touch her ... like her back end. And, she does not like to be picked up from the ground, however she'll jump right in your lap and you can pick her up from there. So, she is quirky but not completely un-manageable. Dora has a few dog friends that are about her size or smaller, but she is afraid of larger dogs. So, she's looking for a home as the only dog or with another compatible small dog. Dora is very healthy, spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. To meet and possibly adopt Dora, please fill in the on-line adoption application at http://famousfidorescue.com/rescueforms/machform/view.php?id=26727 and follow up by contacting Gloria at fido@famousfidorescue.com or 773-907-0305.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Cairn in Illinois
    Cairn Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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.
