Cannon is a 6 year old Cairn Terrier mix who was adopted from our organization 5 years ago. His family is relocating and made the decision to return him to us. Poor Cannon was so sad to be left behind that he cried! But we have promised him that his next home will be his FUREVER home and we intend to honor that promise to his little guy.

Cannon is a super-snuggly boy who loves to be pet. He's super friendly, even with strangers, and will jump right up on people- good thing he doesn't weigh too much! He's become pals with the resident dog in his foster home and really likes to hang out with him. He's both a people's dog and a dog's dog!

Cannon was most likely fed table scraps at his former home; he's a bit of a beggar and could stand to lose a pound or two. So a family who's looking for a regular walking buddy would be great for him. He could definitely go to a home with another dog, and in many ways would probably prefer to, but he could also be an office buddy or run errands with his new owner. Cannon's former family reports that he is housebroken.

Cannon may be an option for a home that has not owned a dog recently but has some prior dog experience and knowledge. He does bark at passing stimuli, so he's probably best suited for a home rather than an apartment. This is definitely something that could be worked on with training, though! Cannon is an option for a home with children over the age of 6.
