Elfriede is a beautiful, blonde cairn terrier female AND a very sweet little girl. She came into CLSR via owner surrender. Her birthday is June 1st, 2010.

Elfie (her nickname here) is completely up-to-date on her medical protocol, including being spayed and having a recent dental. She was heartworm positive when she came into CLSR, but she is completely through the treatment now and had no complications from it. Elfie has also been dewormed and brought up-to-date on all of her shots. She is also microchipped.

Her weight stays around 17 lbs., depending on her treat level. Elfie loves her food and treats! Here at her foster home, she plays with Douglas (a cairn mix male) and they get along very well. At her former home, she was kept with a female Chihuhaua with no problems either, according to her former owner. She is a fun-loving girl who LOVES her toys! At first she was pretty submissive here, but as she warmed up and learned the routines, she became much bolder about her play times. She now gets really silly and zooms around to play with her toys, often flipping them up into the air as she does so. :)

Elfriede loves to cuddle with her people and to get tummy rubs. She seems to be mostly pottytrained. There have been a few accidents, but not if we're vigilant about taking her out every 2-3 hours or so. She particularly dislikes going potty outside if it's raining, however.

We have all of our fosters learn to sleep in a crate, so she knows how to do that and will even jump into one every once in a while when a treat is shown! She walks okay on leash -- she's not afraid of it -- but she does pull sometimes.

Does this little girl sound like someone you'd like to meet? If so, please fill out our online application at and put "Elfriede" in the area that asks who you are particularly interested in. Someone will be in touch with you quickly to arrange a personal meeting with her. Until then, Elfie says, "Thank you for considering cairn rescue -- and especially ME! -- for your next companion!" :)

Douglas is a very sweet, young cairn mix who came into CLSR recently from a local shelter. His coat was matted to the skin when we received him so, as you can see in his pictures, it had to be all shaved off. It's growing back now and is a beautiful light brown color. Douglas is estimated to be 3 years old by our vet. We think he's probably a cairn terrier / yorkie mix.

This little guy is playful and young, and he's been good with the other dogs here. He mostly plays with Murphy and Jessie, but he also LOVES to cuddle with his people! He's quite the little character! Douglas sleeps quietly in his crate at night and keeps it dry. His leash walking skills are basic. He's not afraid of the leash, but not well-trained on it either.

Medically speaking, Douglas is up-to-date on his shots and has been dewormed. He tested negative for heartworms thankfully, and we keep him on monthly heartworm prevention meds here at his foster home. Douglas is neutered and micro-chipped. He recently had a dental also. Douglas is working on his potty training.

Does this little one appeal to your heart? If so, he'd love to meet you! :) To schedule an up-close and personal meeting with Douglas, please fill out our online application for him by clicking on his name. Someone will be in touch with you quickly to walk you through the process.

Thank you for supporting cairn rescue! :)
