Please welcome Gustav!

Written by a CP Intakes volunteer



Can you imagine being on the street, all on your own, no identification, no collar or harness, and no money to buy a burger?

That's the situation Gustav found himself in. No one knows how he became a wanderer, whether he was a stray or someone dropped him off in a neighborhood to fend for himself. Being a hungry and smart young cairn, Gustav surveyed the neighborhood deciding who would be best to help him. He saw a house where some happy dogs lived with a nice lady. AHA - that's where I'm going!! Gustav kept showing up at the same house every day until he convinced the kind lady he needed help. This wonderful Samaritan did everything possible to find his owners. No microchip, no answer to all the ads and found dog posters--no one was looking for him. The local authorities had no reports of a lost cairn.

Our wonderful Col. Potter rescue team contacted the caretaker in case rescue was needed. As time went on and no one came for him, the caretaker decided Gustav needed the help only CP could provide for wayward cairns.

Gustav is thought to be about 3 years old, knows some commands--sit, down, stay, and is a cute, furry boy. He's energetic and enjoys long walks. Gustav has come in from the streets and is looking for a forever home where he will be treated like a king. Please welcome Gustav!
