We had our Cairn-Eskimo terrier mix, Roxie, for a couple of years when our daughter brought home a Cairn-Corgi mix called Max. His owners had recently purchased a pure bred for $1200, then had their first child. When two dogs and a baby were too much to handle, they decided it was the mutt that had to go to a shelter. He was a year younger, but the same size and coloring as Roxie which made them look like siblings. So our daughter thought she would bring Max home to see if she could convince us to save him. He won our hearts immediately. Goofy Max and moody Roxie have been together and part of our family ever since.
