Kit Carson Blazes a Trail to Col. Potter!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

Kit Carson, an approximately 2 year old Rescued Cairn

Well, pards, looks like Col. Potter is having a round-up of frontier fellers this week!

We’ve already met Jim Bowie, and now we have Kit Carson bellying up to the bar at the Col. Potter “Kibble and Bone Saloon.”

Kit Carson hails from the Wild West and again comes to us through the many travels of Charlene and Bill M. (“Have Crate—Will Travel!”)

Kit is a young high-spirited Wheaten Cairn boy at just about two years old.  He may have some filling out to do yet, but meanwhile he’s looking right good at 14 pounds.

We’re showing here a before and after picture of life in the shelter for this young Kit Carson.  The terrified, crouching little dog in one picture taken at the shelter is now seen in the next picture as a more relaxed, maybe even smiling little dude after he knows he’s free and safe and being cared for at the vet hospital.

Kit Carson suffered great emotional distress in the shelter, as do so many Cairns who have the misfortune to end up in this setting – or worse.
You can see the difference almost immediately when he realizes he is safe at the vet’s office!

Oh what a feeling!  It’s what rescue is all about…

Let’s now all of us give Kit Carson a big rousing Howdy as he joins the Col. Potter family! 

Col. Potter Needs a Few More Adventurers! 
Please Volunteer to Foster or Transport so we can serenade every Cairn in need!
