Katelyn Brings Good Karma to Col. Potter!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

Katelyn, a Sweet 6 year old Black Brindle Female

Col. Potter's new girl is the lovely Katelyn!  This sweet, smiling, six year old Black Brindle Cairn girl joined the family since her owner could no longer care for her due to illness and frequent lengthy hospital stays.  Unfortunately, no family member could help care for her, or take her into their home. 

Katelyn's owner found help through a grooming salon, where the groomer happened to work with Scottie Rescue.  She saw the dire situation, so agreed to take Katelyn in until she could find a Cairn Rescue to help.  It surely was Katelyn's lucky day!  She was safe.  Katelyn will be having a short B&B until heading to her Foster Home, then on to a wonderful Forever!

Many, many thanks to the groomer who helped Katelyn start her journey!

Darleigh Looks Ahead with Col. Potter!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

Darleigh, a loyal 3 year old Black Brindle Male

Please join us in giving a hearty CP Welcome to our new, handsome, Black Brindle Cairn boy, Darleigh!

The story of Darleigh is a story about a dog and his man.  In this true-life story, both Darleigh and his beloved man were dealt a rough hand this time around, and Col. Potter was called in to help ease the situation a little bit for both of them.

The man has to undergo life-changing surgery in a few weeks, and he feels that he just won’t be able to take care of Darleigh in the way he needs to be taken care of.  And that’s because Darleigh, a young 3-year old Cairn boy, has been having unexplained seizures.

The man told us that once he undergoes this surgery, he won’t be able to get down and sit on the floor with Darleigh and comfort him and tell him that things will be “okay” when Darleigh has one of his seizures. He wants to make sure that someone else will be able to be there for his dog.

Darleigh’s dad also warned us that Darleigh does not like people on bicycles at all!  He explained that by suggesting that when the two of them were watching  The Wizard of Oz together—“it was…the part where that nasty lady takes Toto in the basket on the bike.  Maybe it’s his way of getting back at people that are mean to his kin?”

Meanwhile, nobody knows quite what’s wrong with him yet, but Darleigh is in a wonderful CP Foster Home now with very savvy people who have a lot of experience with dogs like Darleigh.  Although Darleigh will never forget his first dad, we are sure he will soon be ready to adopt another lucky person and give his loving heart away again.

Please welcome this brave boy to the Col. Potter family!
