Hello, my name is Wally and I’m a Cairn Terrier! After being found on a busy street, LSWR rescued me from the local shelter and found me a relaxing foster home to live at until I find my forever family! I’m about 2 years young and weigh in at a light 13 pounds, which makes me a perfect size for snuggling on someone’s lap. I am also vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. It took me a few weeks to really get used to my foster parents, but now I LOVE to snuggle with them on the couch while they watch tv and read books!
Like many dogs, I don’t get along with cats, but I like my foster brother (a small Cairn Terrier) a lot, and don’t mind sharing my toys with him. I even let him help me clean up cheese from the floor with my foster mom “accidentally” drops some. I also need a home without children because I sometimes get a little grumpy when humans take away a toy I am playing with.
My foster parents have me on a regular schedule each day (since they insist on going to work), which I like quite a lot. I’m most comfortable knowing exactly when it is time to eat, potty, play, and sleep. I don’t have a lot of grumpy moments these days, but when I do it is usually because my schedule has been thrown off and I am confused. When it is outside time, I love to lay in the grass and soak up the sun. Sometimes I accidentally roll in the grass just after it has been mowed and turn a little green, but I’m a good boy in the bathtub, so my foster mom doesn’t mind! And when it is time for bed, I jump in my crate and wait patiently for my foster mom to get me a little hotdog piece. I’ll do anything for a hotdog (or any other treat, really)!
I would love to find a forever family who will shower me with love and have lots of time to help me grow up. If I sound like the right boy for you, please complete the online application on the LSWR website.
