I usually write short posts, but this post is important, so it’s long.
Lebkuchen (Tink), is now a 19 year old Cairn Terrier in a loving home. Tink was the oldest of a group of 12 Cairn Terrier’s rescued from a Missouri puppy-mill during November 2008.
Four years ago, one of the Col. Potter Cairn Terrier rescue volunteers adopted the oldest Fosters rescued by Col. Potter in a group of twelve. She scooped her up and brought her home for Christmas, lighting up her life for the Season, and well beyond!
Tink, Divinity, and ten other Cairn Terrier’s were rescued from the same puppy-mill on 11/28/2008, A Col. Potter volunteer told me “I do not know where they all ended up, or where they are now. One was very sick (Heartworm positive & liver damage) and did not survive long (though long enough to know love!)”
The volunteer who rescued them initially wrote the following:
“….I hate to admit it, but there have been SO MANY kids since this group in ’08 that it’s hard to remember specifics. But they were some of the worst condition kids we’ve ever handled and had some of the worst eyes/coats that we’ve ever seen. My memories go to Pizelle – he was so scared we had to watch him as we thought he could be a fear biter, Shortbread – he was like an ADHD child, happy and bouncing off the walls. Merangue had the worst mats/dreadlocks we’ve ever encountered. And little Divinity was one of those that if we’d have fostered her, I’m sure she wouldn’t have left here – just a little dollbaby. All were so scared – such fear in those eyes instead of sadness or lost hope…”
Here are the twelve who were rescued starting with the oldest, Tink. These photo’s were taken at the time of rescue.
