Meet Mr. W.

Mr. W is a Cairn Terrier mix with many of the redeeming qualities that only a Terrier lover can appreciate. Mr. W's estimated age is between 6 and 8 years old. He weighs 18 pounds and he's house trained. His backstory prior to being found in the streets of Northern Massachusetts is unknown. Since coming into rescue a number of medical issues have been addressed. Mr. W's temperament can be described as cranky.

We engaged a trainer for an assessment. The trainer suggested the underlying cause of Mr. W's cranky temperament could be triggered by pain in his rear quarter. Although he was brought into the vet for his rear leg, the vet determined an abdominal X-ray was needed. The results indicated Mr. W. had 26 stones in his bladder. As with people, sometimes dogs become grouchy when they're in pain. After the surgery, we anxiously awaited for signs that Mr. W was feeling better. Several weeks later, Mr. W was favoring one of his legs. We scheduled an orthopedic consult. The results indicated Mr. W had torn his ACL. The recommendation was rest, limited use and pain management. It's been a few months since Mr. W's orthopedic consult and follow-up. He's no longer on pain medication and his leg injury has healed.

Although Mr. W. continues to be on the cranky side, he is a loyal companion and guardian. If you decide you would like to be Mr. W's person, here's what you can expect ..... He will seek out your attention and be at your side when you have a seat. He will be at your heels when you get up. He will alert you if he believes there are intruders outside the door. When you are at work, he will take a snooze in his favorite spot. When you arrive home, he will greet you with excitement and enthusiasm.

Mr. W's ideal forever home would be with a single person or couple that leads a quiet life. Mr. W., has shared his space with other dogs and can peacefully coexist with other canines; however, this boy could benefit from being an only. If you have room in your heart and home to let this little gentleman in, please let us know and we will arrange an introduction.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label
