Cairn Terrier

One of the oldest terrier breeds, the sturdy, natural, game little Cairn Terrier is an able swimmer, a great hunter and a fabulous companion for the family. The Cairn Terrier is a sensible, confident little dog, independent but friendly with everyone he meets, alert, intelligent and long-lived.

The dogs were originally used in the Scottish Highlands by crofters, shepherds, and foxhunters for pest control and later favoured for use against badgers and otters.

This active little dog needs plenty of mental and physical stimulation, their shaggy natural looking coat requires regular attention to prevent matting.
