Keets Finds a New World at Col. Potter!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

Keets, a sweet, friendly, and very lucky 2 year old Wheaten Female


Once again, Col. Potter comes to the rescue!


CP's Rescue Team searches far and wide for Cairns in need.  When the team learns that a Cairn life is at risk, the search shifts to volunteers who can help rescue the Cairn from danger.  CP's newest little girl landed in a shelter where many dogs are immediately placed on death row after their reclaim period ends.  While they may officially be considered “adoptable”, their lives are dependent upon how much space is available at the shelter.  

Keets had just three days - total - for her owner to find and reclaim her.  The shelter was full, so she was immediately at risk.  A wonderful CP volunteer, Jamie D., learned of Keets' plight on the eve of her last day.  The following morning Jamie drove straight to the shelter and welcomed Keets to the CP family.  Jamie confirmed the reports that Keets is a very sweet and friendly Wheaten girl.  Keets is estimated to be just 2 years old and weighs in at just under 14 lbs.  She is currently enjoying a spa week which will include a much needed grooming.  

A big thank you to new CP volunteer, Terry W, who volunteered to drive through challenging traffic to collect Keets and get her on her way to her Foster home.  The name Keets was the nickname for a much loved CP Cairn named Kitsune.  CP rescued Kitsune from a puppy mill at just 9 months old and he was adopted by Jamie D.  This very happy Cairn lived life to the fullest.  He loved exploring and his adventures included living in numerous cities across America, and even some time in Peru.  Thanks to Jamie's help, another CP Cairn has had the world opened to her!
