Update 23rd June 2021: A foster placement has been found for Bertie and he will be going to his new home this coming Friday.
Thank you to everyone who enquired about him.
URGENT UPDATE 22nd June 2021: Bertie & Freddie came into rescue on the 12th June. They were taken straight to a foster home in the Stoke-on-Trent area. Their owner passed away just over 2 years ago and one of the family took care of them in their owners home, which wasn’t an ideal situation as the family member worked full time, so they were left to their own devices for 8-10 hours each day.
Unfortunately they have started to fight each other again, and they will fight to the death if possible. This is something they have done for a while as neither of them has been neutered.
Their foster dad is finding it very difficult to keep them apart. He is prepared to continue to foster Freddie, but unfortunately Bertie needs a new foster/forever home. Bertie is a lovely looking dog, he’s 9 years old and fit and healthy, but he can be a little bit grumpy. He likes his own space, and is a typical independent male Cairn. We feel that he would be a lot better on his own.
Is there anyone out there who could take him for a few weeks to see how he gets on? Obviously he needs to go where there are no other pets and no young children.
This is quite urgent, as their foster dad is having to be very careful that they are kept apart.

18th June 2021:
Bertie and Freddie recently went to a foster home to be assessed. Their dad had passed away two years ago and they have been looked after by a member of the family. Unfortunately their home is up for sale and the family member is moving into a new home where pets are not allowed.
They have had fights now and again and are not keen on other dogs. We do have homes for them to go to once they have been assessed, so hopefully they will be in their new home/s by July.
As you can see they seem to be settling into their foster home, so fingers crossed. Bertie is dark brindle and Freddy is wheaten.
