She loves belly rubs and food.
Being picked up
ANYTHING but bananas
I'm a cairn, just being cute is enough!
Defi lived with her first human family until she was 11 years old. Then both her humans died and the people who were supposed to care for her left her in a kill shelter in Austin, TX, very overweight and with severe heartworms. A rescue got her from the shelter and contacted Col. Potter cairn rescue. They took her in and asked us if we would foster her, even though there was a good possibility at her age and with severe heartworms she would go into heart failure when treated for the heartworms. Eventually CP decided to try the longer and milder treatment and in months Defi was heartworm free. She had seizures a couple of months after coming to us, was on medication for over a year, had no more seizures, so with vet approval we weened her off of the medications and so far so good!
You can never get enough lovings!

What's up with the hoomans??? Are they starving me? Since midnight last night, no food or water has been to be found in this house! Dad did take me for a walk this morning and he put me in the car right away after our walk!
Oh dear, I've been taken to the dogtor's office and dad is LEAVING me here!! They say I have to have my toofers cleaned today. Defi
Defi's mom here......I always worry when our pups go under anesthesia, especially a little senior girl like our Defi who also had severe heartworms only a couple of years ago. Will be nervous until we get her home safely. Please send some good thoughts for everything to go ok with our girl!

So this is my forever home now....and it feels like it has all along! Cassie is still the queen bee and Hunter is BOTH of our servant! The humans still treat me the same way, so just as I knew all along, I've been home ever since I came here to be fostered!
The humans did take me to get groomed, and they say I'm half the dog I was with all that fur cut!

Well, actually I've been home ever since I came to this place to be fostered 2 years ago, I KNEW it, but it took the humans and the resident dogs longer to figure it out!
As of today, I'm officially a member of this furmily, and I know I will be loved and cared for always.
Being a senior girl like I am, my humans just couldn't see sending me to another home to have to readjust all over again, so they adopted me.
Cassie and I have a spat now and then, she thinks she's queen of the house and has to remind me of that at times, but most of the time we get along just fine.
Hunter is just the sweetest little brudder I could ask for, and my dad, well, he's just the BEST!
I love my mom, too, but Dad's retired and is home a lot more, so I get LOTS of walkies, treats, food, and lovings from him.
All in all, I'd say for a girl who was dumped at a kill shelter with severe heartworms over 2 years ago, my life is good!
