|A hearty dog bred in the British Isles for hunting, the Cairn Terrier is now a wonderful family pet. They are easily maintained. They are a very healthy dog with a non-shedding coat and when groomed has an elegant look. These dogs are suited for indoor OR outdoor life. They are a small dog. Our Cairns weigh from 12-19lbs. Wheaten Cairn Terriers usually lighten. The brindle Cairn Terriers can start out dark brindle and end up a silver brindle (like Maggie May).
