Picaboo! Col. Potter Sees You!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator


Picaboo, a Darling 11 lb., approx. 4 year old Black Brindle Female

This darling little 11 lb., approximately 4 year old Cairn girl found herself in a shelter and was down to her last few days before being euthanized.  It’s hard to believe no one was interested in adopting or rescuing her based on her age and cuteness, but she is heartworm positive, so no one wanted her.   Col. Potter to the rescue!

And what a rescue it turned out to be!   We could not find any CP Volunteers within a 50 mile radius of the shelter to pull her – and it’s not even located in a remote area – just no one responded to our pleas for help.   So we reached out to other rescues for help and thankfully, Oklahoma Westie Rescue jumped in willingly – not only to pull her but to transport her a good distance to meet our very own faithful Volunteers, Mike and Lori R.  Miss Picaboo (pronounced “Peek-A-Boo”) spent the night with them and is on her way to our vet this morning.  Lori said she is a very friendly little girl and that Mike is in “love” with her already!

Picaboo is Heartworm positive so will need treatment for several months

She will be undergoing heartworm treatment in her Foster home for the next few months.  If you would like to help little Picaboo on her road to recovery, please consider donating to help with her medical expenses.  Please send your check with a note for Picaboo #5389 and mail it to:
