Papa is a 5-year-old Cairn Terrier-Poodle mix, (a designer breed)
Papa is a sweet Boy and he has personality in Spades! He is Toto with a short tail! Papa Loves his daily walks with his foster, loves playing fetch indoors and outdoors
We recently discovered that he loves toys, especially squeaky toys! Papa will run and chase the toy, bring it back, drop it at your feet and wait until the human throws it again and he will run after it. He looks like Toto running. Papa is pretty athletic and he loves to play. Papa loves to be held, he will roll over for belly rubs, jump into my arms when I ask him and he smiles when he is happy.

Background :
Papa came to us from a rescue friend in California who took him from the shelter with his mother. His mother is a purebred Cairn terrier and she was mated with Poodle to create the designer breed
known as a Cairnoodle. Mom was bred heavily and she is in hospice care. Papa has been brought to full health and is happy to be free and to be receiving excellent food, love and attention

What Papa Needs:
Papa really needs a loving person or persons who will dote on him. he loves being an only dog and the center of attention. he is done with puppies and will ignore other dogs, so an only dog home is best. he needs a person with a willingness to walk him, train him and keep him on the very nutritious canine-specific foods to stay healthy for his entire life (we provide in-depth education) Papa needs people who are committed to loving him forever so he will never again be abandoned!  Papa needs a small animal and cat-free home.
