Amtrak Hopped a Ride to Furever Happiness

Foster Mom says: Just got this update from the forever family of CP's Albuquerque (Abby) now Amtrak (yes this was the dog who got out of my yard and had a ride on a train. Do we do good work or what? From a scared mill momma to a joyful happy carefree cairn.
A year ago yesterday was Amtrak's last day as a breeder dog - she had spent her whole life (almost 4 years) in a crate. She had never seen a house, known a friendly hug, nor walked on grass. She was rescued 1/22/10 by Col. Potter's Cairn Rescue Network and spent months in an Illinois foster home (thanks, Mary & Jim!) learning about life outside the breeding mill before we adopted her last August. Click here to see how Amtrak is doing today (playing with our other Col. Potter rescue dog, Joey). She is obviously doing way more than just walking on grass!   
We are very thankful to Col. Potter, all its many volunteers, and all its donors and supporters for rescuing our much-loved Amtrak and Joey.
