Heres a note from his foster mom - thank you all for helping

I just wanted to give you a quick update on Bridger. Bridger was adopted and returned to a shelter in Boise, Idaho and then deemed unadoptable by the shelter. Sheila - an angel at the shelter - thought otherwise and contacted Col. Potters and Bridger's new life began. I picked him up Saturday night from the transporter, who was bringing 9 dogs to foster home from Boise - another angel. When I picked up his crate and peeked in at him, he pressed himself into the back of his crate and I thought I was really in for a scared little guy. I got Bridger home, put his crate in an X-pen and opened the door, it took him about a second to pop out and I turned my back for a minute and he had jumped out of his X-pen. My kids were running around the yard and he joined right in and zoomed with my other foster Daschle. I was worried about getting a hold of him again, but when I sat down on the edge of a chair, he jumped right up behind me and I knew we would be OK. Bridger settled in his crate like a perfect little angel without a peep all night and best of all was when I let him out of his crate the next morning. You could practically hear him saying "Yippee," he was so happy and immediately starting playing with Dash and jumped up a couple of times to grab my PJs with a playful little enticement to play. Then he ate a little bit of breakfast and jumped up in a chair with me to settle against me with his head on my leg for a nap. Bridger is hand shy and a little scared when we reach for him, but he follows me everywhere and comes to me for protection when one of my kids give him a grrrrrrrr. He really likes to be held and loved. I have been holding him and sweet talking him and he is already a changed little boy. He is a very handsome little man with a beautiful dark brindle coat, which is in really good shape. He has done ALL OF HIS POTTYING OUTSIDE and learned to chase a ball and bring it back for more. Unadoptable - I think not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you to all the wonderful angels who worked to give Bridger a chance at life. I am honored to help this little boy on his way.

What a sweet report! Perhaps the previous family would have been more happy with another breed but he sounds all terrier and full of life! He sounds like a doll, a terrier doll that is! Darlene and Jolly, FL

I am looking for a cairn to buy or adopt. Is Bridger already spoken for? I am in Boise also.
