Cairn Terrier

I am a terrier, through and through.

My name was chosen because of my ability to retrieve vermin from the small openings in stone grave markers (cairns).

My coat is rather thick and hard, but regular combing and a little trimming here and there keep me looking nice. (Show dogs must be hand stripped.)

I am independent, intelligent, and very active. My small size is very well suited to apartment living, but I do enjoy the outdoors and like to go for walks.

One of my favorite things to do is to help you transplant some of your flowers and shrubbery. I donít have any problem at all digging them up, but I do have a little trouble re-planting them by myself.

Youíll have to watch me to be sure that I donít dig them up until you are ready!!

When fully grown, I am between 9 and 12 inches tall (22.9 to 30.5 centimeters) and I weigh between 13 and 16 pounds (5.9 to 7.2 kilograms).
