Cairn Terrier
Born: 08/01/2003
17 lbs

Homeward Bound-Adopted

Now living happily in North Platte, Nebraska.

Burke is a happy, inquisitive boy. He loves to play with his doggie friends and loves to be held and snuggled. He is energetic and fun. Burke's life wasn't always so happy though. He was rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri where there were no indoor accomodations for the dogs. The tips of Burke's ears are frozen off, and he has nerve damage in one of his back feet from the freezing conditions that he lived in day and night for 5 years at the puppy mill. Burke may continue to need inexpensive anti-inflamitory drugs for the nerve damage. He is a great fellow who deserves a wonderful home and family to make up for all of the misery he suffered at the puppy mill. Burke is a male Cairn Terrier. He was born 8/1/03 and weighs 17 pounds.

His Buddies, the Quinlivan family, from Ogalalla, NE, sent him this message: "Missy and Theo are very happy to be your Buddies, they want you to know that you can come and play anytime you want . Jack, Tricia, Missy the Cairn and Theo the Cocker Quinlivan." Burke sends the Quinlivan family many happy, grateful kisses.
His Buddy, Paul Ylvisaker, from North Wales, Pennsylvania, sent him this message: "Burke, On behalf of myself and my three cairns (Buster, Lucy and Charlie), I hope this small donation will help make your life comfortable while you wait for your new adoptive parents. Perhaps when I return from Iraq, if you are still available, there is a possibility of adding you to my family. Stay young and strong buddy!" Burke sends Paul and his sweet Cairns many happy, grateful kisses.

Thanks for Visiting Our Animals!

Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care. We can cat test a dog if requested. If you are interested in adopting a dog, we can give you more information on each dog if you click the Adoption Info & Application link above. Buddies are people who support the dog and send them love while they are waiting for their new home. The dog does not live with the buddy.
