Who is Sprinkles??

Sprinkles Portrait
Sprinkles is a 5 1/2 year old female Cairn Terrier. She was previously a breeder dog at a puppy mill in Tennessee, and her birthday is May 14th. Thanks to the great folks at Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network and her very loving Foster mom (Karen in Yuma, Arizona), Sprinkles began learning how to be a free and happy little dog. Sprinkles didn't have any toys when she was in the puppy mill, so she's only now learning how to play. We're sure that Rafferty will help "show her the ropes". We feel extremely fortunate and blessed to be able to adopt this sweet little girl and provide her with her forever home. She and Rafferty are now the best of friends and they love to play together in the house and back yard.
