Dog Breeds

Cairn Terrier

Cairn Terriers are small enough to be carried anywhere and sturdy enough for rough-housing for children.

The Cairn Terrier is best suited to a home where he will be reared with a firm, consistent discipline.

Over 200 years ago, on the ancient Isle of Skye and in the Scottish Highlands, the ancestors of today's Cairn Terrier earned their keep routing vermin from the rock piles (called cairns) commonly found on Scottish farmland. These early terriers were highly prized and bred for their working ability, not appearance. Such characteristics as courage, tenacity and intelligence, housed in a sturdy body clad in a weather-proof coat, armed with big teeth in strong jaws, were sought generation after generation. Gradually the breeds known as the Scottish Terrier and the West Highland White evolved and were named.
