    Name: Anita Sex: Female Breed: Wheaten Terrier Mix Age: 3-4 years old Weight: 20 lbs Good with: Dogs, untested with kids and cats Hi, my name is Anita and I am believed to be a Wheaten Terrier. I am about 3-4 years old and about 20 lbs. I was neglected and abandoned by my family one day outside their apartment when they moved away and a good neighbor saved my life and lucky for me I found a new chance through my rescue friends in Houston. I am getting enough nutrition these days so I will be able to gain another 10 more lbs. hopefully. I am healthy and up to date on my vaccines and heartworm negative. I'm just starting to learn to have ... (Read More)human contact and I'm enjoying it very much. I'm really smart and now starting to learn to not beg for food and enjoying the love my foster mom and little foster human brothers provide me with. I get along very well with all dogs, love to play fetch. My favorite toy is a tennis ball and I love my treats. I am crate trained and learning to be potty and house trained. I love to be rubbed on my belly and to be kissed. I am a little scared right now of sudden movements around me, but learning quickly to stay calm. Once my fur grows back, I will look a lot prettier and fluffier. I can't wait to see my final me in a couple months. If you are interested in adopting, fill out an adoption application at! Please note: We can only foster or adopt in the states of Massachusetts and New Hampshire (Less)

    Hi my name is Ed but my friends call me Eddie. I'm a 4 year old 11lb terrier mix and boy do I love everything! I love walks, hikes, running around the yard and car rides too! Snuggling and belly rubs might be my favorite though so if you have room for me on your lap I would be so very happy. I'll jump into your lap at any height! My foster mom says I'm the perfect house guest. I am crate trained, house broken and I adjust very quickly to new environments. I am very quiet in the house, but I will bark when new people come over. I love my foster family! What can I say I'm a happy go lucky kind of guy. I would do best in an adult ... (Read More)only home. I do show some resource guarding behavior with food and high value items. My foster mom says that this is very managable and she barely even notices! She is able to leave dry food down for me 24/7 to share with the resident dog without any issues. Sometimes I will get tense and growl if I am approached while I am eating though so I will need to work on that. I also can be unsure when meeting new people. My foster mom will put me in my crate or outside when new people come over and then let me out and I am totally fine and will jump right in their laps! When new people walk into the house and I am able to greet them I do get nervous and will bark at them. Overall my foster family things I am GREAT and if they could, they would be adopting me today. My tail never stops wagging and I am such a happy boy, and I am at my cutest when I have 1 ear up and one ear down! I know how to sit for a treat and I run in circles when I get excited.

NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. 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. 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. (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.

    Cairns have been around since at least 1500. 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.
