Miri Meadow, called Mayzee by her foster mom Sheron, is about twelve years old and is a petite girl at about ten pounds.
Sherron says Mayzee is very sweet. She follows Sherron everywhere, always looking up at her. Although Col. Potter Rescue doesn’t know a lot about her background, Sherron guesses she was picked up on the street either having gotten lost or discarded by previous owners. She is afraid of loud noises and suffers from separation anxiety.

Hartigan grew up in a loving home with two parents who took him everywhere. However, as he grew older he developed some health problems which were difficult for the family because, with busy schedules, they had trouble handling his schedule of medications. In addition, they had a baby, and when the baby got more attention than Hartigan, the Scottie became quite jealous. So, when he bit the baby, the parents were ready to have him euthanized.

Patch is fifty-three percent Westie, twenty percent Staffordshire Terrier, and the rest a mix of breeds. He is the size of a Staffie making him larger than Cairns and Westies.

Little Aunt Peggy, as the Col. Potter folks named her, was in rough shape when she came into the Cairn rescue. She had a severe ear infection, bad skin, and she walked with a head tilt. As her foster Susan said, “She walked like a drunken sailor.”

Cassandra is part of Col. Potter’s Mix-It-Up, non Cairn rescues. These dogs are not Cairns and are often, like Cassandra, a mix of several breeds. Like the Cairns Col. Potter rescues, these mixed breeds have been fully vetted for any health needs and are not ready for adoption until the vetting and an analysis of the dog’s personality have been done by an experienced Col. Potter foster parent. One advantage of adopting a Mix-It-Up rescue is that you may just get a very special little dog, like Cassandra.

When Cody was turned into a New York City shelter by his owners, the shelter thought he was a Wheaten Scottie. So, they sent pictures to Scottie Rescue of Greater New York. Meanwhile, the shelter kept him isolated to avoid his picking up kennel cough and other illnesses, which are common in shelters. When the rescue agreed to take him, the shelter had him vetted and brought up to date on his vaccines. They, then, delivered him to Erica, a volunteer with the rescue.
