Tweed's Heartwarming Tail

Please Feel Free to Cross Post!

Tweed is Always in Fashion with Col. Potter! 

This 4 year old Cairn girl, with a gorgeous Brindle coat, after spending her life in a commercial breeder’s cage, was very much looking forward to enjoying some outdoor activities, shooting around a yard, digging and hunting prey, but when Col. Potter’s vet discovered that she was heartworm positive, all of those plans had to be put on hold.

Tweed is adorable and sweet, but still quite shy, as is typical for someone so new to freedom, but she is smart and will learn the joys of loving care in her Foster Home as she goes through her heartworm treatment.

Tweed has been spayed and is in good health, other than the heartworms.  When she is determined to be heartworm free, she will make a great addition to some very lucky active home!

An average of six to eight times each year, Col. Potter rescues a heartworm positive Cairn, giving them the chance to overcome this dreadful condition and live a happy, healthy life.  The prescribed treatment program runs an average cost of $1,000, and is not for the faint of heart, requiring a dedicated Volunteer to be there for a three or four month duration, managing every aspect of every day for the dog undergoing treatment.

PupsEtc is pleased to offer Col. Potter a special Heartwarming Tails fundraiser to help offset the cost of our current stable of four Foster Cairns undergoing this expensive heartworm treatment.  Beginning Saturday, October 19th through Friday, November 1st, a full 20% of all proceeds taken in by PupsEtc during this two week period will be donated to Col. Potter.

NEW!  The Picaboo Square Bolster bed with Removable Center Pillow in honor of CP Picaboo, currently undergoing treatment for heartworm.
