The Loveable And Loyal Cairn Terrier
The first time the Cairn terrier was presented publicly was in 1909. The breed did not really gain popularity until the 1930’s, even though it has been around since the 1500’s.They are one of the original terriers from Scotland, and have some influence on the Skye terrier, the West Highland White and the Scottish terriers. The name “Cairn” is the term used to describe grave markers or farmland borders made by marking them with a pile of stones. Small rodents would build homes in the stone and they were used to chase them out. This dog is now bred for companionship. “Toto” of the “Wizard of Oz” is probably the most famous Cairn terrier.
