I have a Cairn mix that I adopted from a local rescue and she is personality plus. If I'm not paying attention to her and she wants something she puts her paws up on the coffee table and pats things to make a noise while looking straight at me till she gets what she wants. Loves to run when I tell her I'm going "to get you". Not much on cuddling but is such a sweetheart that I forgive that. Smart llittle girl.

I have owned dachounds, mastiffs, german shepards, and Westies over the last 60 years, but now I have three cairns,2 boys I got as puppies and a female that I adopted as a 9 year old. They are great fun, keep me laughing and keep all the vermin off the 3 acres we live on. The female even keeps the vultures from flying over head. The boys are 3 now and entertain us all day long. All three are very smart, love all visitors and play great with my grandson. They travel well too in our RV and help us meet lots of travelers at campgrounds. One is brindle colored , one is a wheaten color, and one is red color and they are all as different as their colors, but all have qualities that make them endearing. They are highly intelligent and howl like coyotes to get back in the door. Coyote howling is their doorbell sound. Gotta love them.

After years of having various kinds of field gun dogs, I decided to get a smaller dog. I didn't want one so small I could trip over it. It had to have personality, and be 'fun'. After over a year of research and attending dog shows, I decided to get a Cairn Terrier. What tipped it was the HUMANS who were attached to this dog. Some other breeds were a bit snotty and stiff but 'Cairn People' are generally as much fun as their dogs. That was over 20 years ago and it was the best decision I've made. Cairns are very intelligent, can be stubborn, easy to care for, totally un 'typical'... some can be cuddlers, some are not, some are quiet, some are 'talkers'... but all in all Cairn Terriers are just about the perfect dog.
