Rescue Me ID: 18-03-09-00517Mr. W (male)

Cairn Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Mr. W is a Cairn Terrier mix between 6 and 8 years old. He weighs 18 pounds and he's perfectly house trained. His back story prior to being found on the streets of northern Massachusetts is unknown Since coming into rescue a number of medical issues have been addressed. A vet examination indicated that Mr. W had stones in his bladder. After the surgery had removed 26 stones, we waited for signs that Mr. W was feeling better. Several weeks later, Mr. W was favoring one of his legs. We scheduled an orthopedic consult. The results indicated that Mr. W had a partial tear in his Anterior Cruciate Ligament. The recommendation was rest, limited ... (Read More)use and pain management. He's no longer on pain medication and his leg injury has healed. Mr. W's ideal forever home would be with a very dog-savvy single person or couple who has experience with reactive dogs and leads a quiet life. Going for a walk is the high point of his day. Mr. W has shared his space with other dogs and can peacefully coexist with other canines. However, this boy could benefit from being an only. For unknown reasons, he can't tolerate his rear end being touched and he will react. He craves affection but he is insecure. His adopter should allow Mr. W time to settle in, develop trust and accept that Mr. W will be a 'work in progress'. Mr. W loves his foster mom but she understands that Mr. W is a grumpy middle-aged man and accepts him for who he is. If you have room in your heart and home to let this little guy in, please let us know and we will arrange an introduction. If you are interested in finding out more about Mr. W, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: Mr. W is neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on vaccines. Mr. W is being fostered in Holbrook, MA. The adoption fee is $200 (Less)

    Those 2 cuties were impounded as strays at a local kill shelter. The black and white one is Rosie and the Tri Colored one is Mary. Both are such sweet little submissive Angels. The girls are about 16 lbs, crate trained and do very well with cats and dogs. Mary has a bark which sounds like a whisle. We don't know exactly what they are mixed with but they look like they could have cairn terriers in them, which would also fit their personalities.Both are crate trained. The girls can be be adopted together or separate. They are approximately 1 year old. IMPORTANT: Those girls are located in Georgia. We do NOT have a shelter in MA. We are a ...

Since a meet and greet is not possible prior to adoption, our adopters make their decision to adopt based on pictures, videos and talking to the foster parent. If you would like to apply for Rosie and Mary please send us an e mail. Their adoption fee is $ 475 each or $ 750 together which includes transport cost, travel certificate, all vaccines, heartworm test and micro chip Our adoption fees are NOT NEGOTIABLE!!!! (Less)

    Say Hello to Rumor! A one year old male Cairn Terrier / Chihuahua mix. Rumor loves belly rubs, playing with toys and an outside game of fetch. Rumor is house trained and walks well on a leash.

(Read More)Rumor, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label (Less)

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