Hi I'm Robby. I was
probably born in Tennessee. My first records show that I got picked
up as a stray in Kingsport, Tennessee. Those characters at the
shelter gave me a silly name - Robin Hood. Cairn Rescue USA saved me
from that dismal joint where my time was short. I then took a long
ride to the east coast where I was placed in a foster home.
That nice foster Mom decided I should have a more manly name so she
called me Robby - Thanks foster Mom!
I loved all the foster
brothers and sisters I had at my foster Mom's house. I
have to say I was a good dog and played gently with little human
visitors and all the dogs. I just got restless from time to
time and would sneak past my foster Mom. Everyone laughs about
chasing me down the highway now that it is all over.
I lived with my foster
family for 14 months. I thought I was there to stay. However,
one day we went to visit a couple who had just recently lost their
Cairn Terrier. Foster Mom told me to behave because this
family might adopt me. So I put on my big smile, wagged
my tail and showed them how I like to play with toys. I knew I
didn't meet their criteria because they wanted a small female
purebred Cairn. I'm not all Cairn as you can tell (see
my DNA info above) by my extra long
legs and white paws and chest. And I'm no girl! But they did
Since being adopted, I
live a very comfortable life. I enjoy my own big (fenced) backyard
where I chase squirrels and bunnies and anything else that moves.
I have two large baskets that overflow with toys. I get to travel
all the time. I've been to the Maryland beaches, winter
vacationed in sunny Florida, and make trips to the Tennessee
mountains. I also enjoy playing ball with Mom outside. Everyone
could be as happy as my family if they would adopt a pet.
