Cairn Terrier Dog Profile

One of our favorite dog breeds is the Cairn Terrier.  We are sort of partial since we had a loving Cairn for many years … her name was Bitsy.  She was one of the sweetest little dogs, wasn’t yappy and she was terrific with the kids.  We would highly recommend Cairn Terrriers or their sister breed West Highland Terriers.
