When Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network sent Muzzle Tuff to Chris to be fostered, she immediately fell in love with him. “With his tiny feet and legs, he was just so cute how could anyone not love him,” said Chris.

China, a special needs wheaten Cairn, presented a tough case for Col. Potter Cairn Rescue.
At nine years old, China had suffered years of neglect and abuse. Her tail was broken in several places and her sphincter muscle was damaged, both of which made elimination difficult. She was also missing the top half of her right ear and had chronic bronchitis.

When Fritter came to Dianne to be fostered in May, 2014, he was about seven years old and had been an owner turn-in. It was the usual story: children with allergies and he marked in the house under stress. However, Dianne says he is just the sweetest boy and his marking can be managed with belly bands and regular walks.

Jace, an owner turn-in, came into Col. Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue in rough shape. He was matted, covered with fleas, and as Chris, his foster mom, said,” He came in with his dukes up.” Clearly, he had not been treated well.

Honora, or Foxy, as she is known to her friends, came into Col Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue because her elderly owner could no longer care for her.
