A Big Little Dog
The Cairn terrier really is a big little dog. Though he stands only about 10 inches tall and weighs just 14 pounds, he is sturdy and strong.
In the personality department, there is nothing small about him.
A Cairn terrier is an affectionate, loyal companion for you and your family. His lively personality and endless energy make him great for kids. On average, healthy Cairns can live up to 15 years in age, so you can enjoy raising him with your kids or just enjoy his devoted friendship for a long time to come.
