These two boys have not got a clue as to what is happening to them.  It looks like they have had a good groom and then were brought to a pound and surrendered. At a year old life should only be begining for them instead they were urgently waiting on a saviour.  Thankfully cairn rescue was contacted and we are getting them into kennels until they get a more deserving home.   Thanks to a rescue group in Cork who took these two boys out of the pound they have gone to their forever home.

Woody 2- 3 year old is a very affectionate, loving dog. He is house trained, is good with  the child in the foster home who is around 6 years old.  Woody was found as a stray and had been attacked by a dog and had an abscess on his neck which required veterinary treatment.  Woody is a very mannerly little man (and he is little).  He is not sure of other dogs which is understandable so would prefer to be the only dog.  He is one stunning boy very gentle and quiet he just so wants a home to call his own.
