Malcolm, a gentle boy with a mixed background, was found on the street as a stray. When Col Potter took him in and had him vetted, an I.D. chip was found and his owners were contacted. Sadly, they declined to take him. Fortunately for him, he was rescued by Col. Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue and put into the capable hands of Julie, an experienced foster parent.

Tiggy, a young Cairn, was turned into NY/NJ Scottie Rescue when his owner lost her husband. She was overwhelmed with the loss and didn’t have the time to give Tiggy the attention he craved and was used to. The lady’s sister was a breeder and gave her a Scottie puppy hoping it would cheer her up.

A beautiful wheaten Scottie, Bailee, is a big boy at about thirty pounds. He has had a rough time, but has a lot of love and companionship to give to the right forever home. His original owner was an older man who had an accident and could no longer take care of Bailee. Instead of calling Scottie Rescue, Bailee was sent to a North Carolina shelter. He became stressed at losing his home and being dragged off by a stranger, so he bit the animal control officer.

The Family, as the volunteers at Colonel Potter Rescue call them, were found on the street. Mom and five newly born babies were in rough shape. A well-meaning person found them and took them home. Unfortunately, a young child in the family tried to handle the babies, but the mom, doing what moms do, defended her little ones. The family was taken to the shelter the next day.
