Cairn Terrier Puppies

Purebred Cairn Terriers are among the oldest Terriers of the western region of Scotland. These terriers closely resemble that of the Skye Terriers and were actually once called ‘short haired Skye Terriers’ until the Kennel Club decided that this was not appropriate. Cairn Terriers get their name from the fact that they were bred to work as hunting dogs, searching for small animals within Cairns in the United Kingdom. Their past as a working dog explains why many purebred Cairn Terriers are naturally search out vermin within the home and ‘earn their keep’.
