On 18 June, Gayle Kiesow asks:
Do you have a name that's been paid for . . .
we're bringing in a four-month-old male
from the St. Louis area that does not have a name.
Heather Shea had submitted and paid for JACK,
"in memory of my first Cairn (mix), Jack Shea,
the best dog in the world."
On 6/18/12, an owner-surrender form came to CRUSA Intakes
from a woman who does a lot of rescue work, for all breeds,
and lives close to St Louis on the Illinois side of the river.
She had come across a breeder who was looking to get rid of some Cairns
and made arrangements to get a male.
When she arrived at the breeder,
she was told the male had died in the shed they were kept in
along with another Cairn; all she had left was a female & some pups.
Lulu & Jack
The breeder was obsessing about finding another male
to continue to breed her female.
The rescuer did some fast talking to get the female, Jazzie, & three pups.
She is releasing Jazzie & one male pup, Jack, to us,
as she already had forever homes in place for the other two.
Shannon & Jack
A new, inexpensive clinic in Collinsville, Illinois (Hartz Spay Neuter Clinic)
will take care of getting them both up to date, spayed and possible neuter for Jack.
We hope to move them north to Peoria this coming Saturday
and then onto Wisconsin early next week.
Shannon & Joe Radosevich will foster Jack;
Lynette & Henry Henriksen will foster Jazzie.
