Default Cairn Terrier at Petland

OMG.. the little guy is all kinds of cuteness.. he's so adorable!!!!

I want to buy him so badly but he's so overpriced and I know.. I know.. its Petland.

Petland kills me.. they have all these cool breeds but their all too much. I visit the dogs about once a week, and every time I'm in there.. there are always a ton of people, but I never see anyone taking animals home... probably because their all overpriced.. but still.. seems weird.

The pet store in my area is really overpriced too. It's odd, because sometimes i'll be there on a Friday night and they'll change the prices on puppies from like 800 to 400. I always feel bad for the older ones there or the ones that don't have the "cute" factor.

You know not to buy puppies from there...

I know what you mean, though. My childhood dog was a Cairn terrier from a petshop. I LOVED her!

Petland is the last place I would get a dog from. The dogs are treated horribly, and the puppy mills they get the dogs from do a poor job of raising the pups. Many times you will wind up with a dog with all kind's of health issues as they grow up. Do yourself a favor and look up a breeder or try adopting a dog from a shelter. You will be much better off and save some money in the process.

Just a suggestion but why not visit your shelter about once a week instead? I know you like looking at the puppies but it is awful tempting to take one home. And as we know that is not a good idea because those dogs come from puppy mills & puppy mills are horrible places. And I know my shelter begs for volunteers all of the time..

Or maybe find a responsible Cairn breeder & help him/her??

Sorry I have to, not sure where in texas you live but..

I also found this # to call for a rescue in Texas: Cairn Terrier Club of America
National Rescue Co-Chair
Lynne Nabors
(314)773-8712

Becky Stamps
(214)416-7277 or (214)464-5262

I believe that first # can also put you in touch with someone who can find you a breeder to buy one from. They are cute little dogs...

I don't even set foot in a pet store that is selling puppies. I won't buy food, toys, bed's anything if they sell puppies. Its about the best I can do I guess on my own.

I can't go to a pet store that has puppies without getting depressed. So I avoid them. I won't go to a small petshop because then you can't avoid the sorry little puppies that need a home.
