Eve wandered into a pretty good situation when she was picked up in Montgomery County, MD. The Animal Services & Adoption Center knew just who to call. CRUSA’s Northeast Region Director, Linda Savage, drove 55 miles to pick up the little stray. When she met Eve, Linda was surprised to find a clean, well groomed, 10-pound terrier, who responded immediately to her name. Best guess is that Eve (now called Evie) had been in a loving family sometime in the recent past, as she appeared to be socialized, and showed curiosity in her new surroundings as they traveled to Linda’s home.

Evie is now ensconced in her foster home a new friend, resident terrier Fergus and a host of other fur tribe members. Linda was further surprised when she saw that Evie was housebroken. The (approximately) three year-old pup showed no hesitation as she played with all the toys, balls and her new playmates.

Evie quickly learned from Fergus that lights out and TV off mean “time to go to bed” and she and Fergus immediately climb into bed with Linda once the lights go out, despite having their own dog beds. In fact, anytime Evie and Fergus notice that Linda is lying down, they both jump on her and try to lick her all over, until Linda says, “That’s enough!”, and luckily, despite the “selective hearing” quality of most Cairns and other terriers, they both listen and stop their licking.

Evie has had a dental (11 teeth pulled!) but recovered quickly. She is also up to date on all vaccinations, is on flea and tick preventative, and has been spayed. She walks well on a leash, takes correction well, and is so ready for your loving home as soon as she has recovered from her spay. If you do not have a fenced in yard, you will need to leash walk her at least 4x a day and give her lots of loving attention as she will need to continue decompressing from all the recent changes in her young life. She has not been tested with children or cats, but we know she would appreciate another canine companion in her new home. Please consider sweet and fun loving Evie if you have an adult only home where at least one family member is home all day.

If all this sounds good and you can give her the love and attention she deserves, Evie just might be the Cairn for you. If you are new to CRUSA, please fill out our application HERE. Evie is waiting for your call – don’t let her down! We will also consider Foster-To-Adopts for Evie. Travel to the foster home by car is required.

Please help Evie find love again. Thank you to Herb and Linda Savage for fostering so many Cairns in need over the years.
