Our pet name is biscuit. He thinks he's a cat. You will always see a sock in his mouth. He is likely to be seen twirling the sock while on his back. He loves to box my husband while playing. He's a sweetie.

    They have a great temperment. Affectionate and loyal and love to stay by their human and around the TV or any other congregation spots. Shed but very very little and no real doggy odor that I noticed. Pretty good watch dogs as they seem to bark when a stranger comes but not a constant barker. I really like them. I think they are a great family pup. Little active as a puppy so plenty of toys.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Cairns. The most delightful doggie I have ever owned! Cairns need a fenced yard if at all possible otherwise use a leash at all times!! They love to chase prey! While a bit bossy and independent, they are extremely devoted to their masters. Recommend early socialization ... remember they ARE terriers. Wonderful dog for a family with children. Side note ... they have the softest, warmest belly!! Our Ozzie gets in bed with us each morning for coffee - we drink the coffee, he sleeps! Can you tell how much we love him? We really need a support group! Good luck!!
