Review for Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network, Romoland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went to Col Potter Cairn Rescue almost 5 years ago to adopt a Cairn Terrier after losing my beloved "Doogie". My other Cairn- Lucy seemed lost without him so I decided to get her another brother or sister but wanted to rescue a dog that needed a loving home. After spending several days on the web site looking at all of the adoptee's I focused on a dog, known then as Noodles, now known as Ricky. He had been badly affected by years spent in a puppy mill and was not the most socially adjusted dog as you can imagine. He lived with his foster mom, Mary Ellen Luthy, not too far from where I lived and after careful screening by this wonderful organization I was allowed a visit to see if it was a match- he had already been returned by one family. Well it was a match- a match made in heaven and I could not imagine life without him. I think the strength of this organization lies within its caring volunteers and the time and effort everyone puts forth in making sure these "kids" go to the right homes. I thank Col Potter for giving me the opportunity to have Ricky in my life and anyone considering making a Cairn Terrier a family member should absolutely support this organization and adopt a Cairn in need.....they will repay your kindness every day with true love and affection. And, by the way, Ricky sends his love to everyone that helped him make this journey!
