This cute-as-a-button little guy is called Leroy! He arrived into CLSR earlier this year from a local shelter, after being picked up stray and not reclaimed.  Now don't be fooled by the grey hairs -- Mr. Leroy is a young guy who is full of life!  He's guessed to be just under 2 years old.  When he's outside, he loves to go exploring in the yard and help his foster mom in the garden.  Inside, he enjoys chewing on his toys and taking lots of naps.  His absolute favorite activity is sitting with his foster mom and dad while they work on the computer or watch TV.  :)

When Leroy first arrived to us, he tested heartworm positive. However, he has now gone through the full heartworm treatment and is clear of them. He also stays on heartworm preventative monthly to prevent them from ever coming back. Leroy is neutered and he's had a recent dental. He's up-to-date on his shots, has been dewormed, and is micro-chipped also.  Leroy weighs 11.5 lbs.

Leroy is crate trained. He also seems to be potty trained. We take him out every few hours to do his business, but he will also speak up when he needs to go outside to potty. Since he needed to be kept quiet during his heartworm treatment, we have only tested him on walking on lead in the backyard.  He did well on that and, now that's he's through with the treatment, he'll begin taking walks through our neighborhood also.

Leroy has shown himself to be good with other dogs. He's not been possessive of toys, beds, or food bowls. He loves to get attention and to be cuddled. He also loves to follow us where we go to see what we might be going to do. :)  Leroy is a sweet snuggle-bug who is looking for a family to shower him with the love and attention he deserves.

What do you think? Does little Leroy look like someone you'd like to meet? If so, please fill out his online adoption application and that will start the ball rolling for you to meet him in person one day very soon. Leroy says, "Thank you very much for supporting cairn terrier rescue!"

This young man is named Liam.  He's approximately 7 years old and came into CLSR from a shelter in the DFW area.  His former family moved and left he and a companion dog behind to fend for themselves.  That didn't go well, of course, but they stayed near their former home and finally a neighbor saw them and fed them, then took them to the shelter after determining that their owners had abandoned them.

In CLSR's care, Liam has been brought up-to-date on his shots, dewormed, microchipped, and neutered.  He has also had a recent dental, during which some loose teeth were pulled. Liam tested heartworm negative, thankfully, and we keep him on monthly meds to prevent it as well.  When he first came in, he had hair loss from flea bite dermatitis, but he's all better from that now, as you can see.  Liam weighs 11 lbs.

This little boy is a very sweet kid!  He gets along well with the other foster dogs here and he LOVES to get attention from his people.  :)  He's crate trained and seems to be mostly potty trained also.  Liam walks okay on leash, but needs more work on it.  He came from a rural area, so maybe he didn't have much practice on this before now.

Liam is a friendly, energetic little guy who would love to be your new Best Buddy.  :)  If you would like to meet him in person, please fill out an application for him at and someone will be in touch very soon to arrange it.  On behalf of Liam and all the other CLSR fosters, thank you for supporting cairn terrier rescue.

Benjamin is a very sweet little boy. He loves to spend his day near people - laying at your feet while you work at home, playing catch with his tennis ball, and going on walks. He does not often pull on his leash or try to bite it, but prefers to make frequent stops on walks to smell the great outdoors. <\P>

Inside, he has done quite well with potty training. He has had no accidents in his crate at night and seems quite uninterested in "marking" his territory, but will occasionally have a small accident when he gets overly excited. He requires a bit of coaxing (usually a small treat works great) to get into his crate at night, but then sleeps through the night.

Benjamin does not currently live with any animal siblings, but does not seem hostile to other dogs when he meets them on walks. And, while he currently does not live with children, he seems to like them quite a bit when he meets them outside! I would suggest, however, that his home not have very small children (under the age of 10, perhaps) as he can be very lively when he plays. Overall, Benjamin is a wonderful little boy who would love to grow up with a loving family! <\P>

If you'd like to meet Benjamin and learn more about him, please fill out our online application and someone will be in touch with you very soon. Thank you for supporting cairn rescue. <\P> (More about Benjamin)
