Cairn Terriers are happy, busy little earthdogs originally bred to fearlessly root out foxes and other small, furred prey in the rocky Scottish countryside.

Why do you love the breed?

Currently the Centers for Disease Control and the Virginia Department of Health are alerting all Animal Control agencies and the public of a severe health issue for dogs, especially on the east coast. “Blue-green algae” blooms (cyanobacteria) are currently widespread in the Mid-Atlantic region. The algae forms in fresh water ponds and lakes, especially during times of high temperatures.

Harmful algal blooms can produce toxins (poisons) that can make people and animals sick and affect the environment. Learn more about them to keep you and your pets safe.

Blue Ridge Middle School is looking to cast a Toto pup for their upcoming school play!!!!

The Drama Department would like to cast a real dog to play Toto for some of the scenes in The Wizard of Oz. It would be ideal if Toto were a black Cairn terrier, but this is not completely necessary. If not a Cairn terrier, a smaller dog of comparable size, ideally black or grey, could also work. An older, DOCILE dog is a must. We would love to find a laid back, friendly dog that is not afraid of people and does not have behavioral issues.

You are invited to send a 1-minute video submission of the dog that you would like considered for the role of Toto to [email protected].

In the video, please have him or her demonstrate an ability to follow some basic commands (sit, stay, etc), as well as a clip of him or her interacting with people (playing, walking, etc). Toto would need to start on February 4 and would need to be available for tech week and performances through February 24.

For detailed requirements, additional information, and a list of rehearsal and performance dates, please contact [email protected]!!!!

Would you do this for your Cairn? ❤

Molly the Westie found out she was going to be a big sister to a little human so I decided to build her a room of her own under the stairs before the baby arrived. Nothing existed there before, it was walled-in. I wasn't sure how big the space was, or if it would even be possible, so was very happy....

Many people think it's a wonderful idea to buy or adopt a dog at Christmas thinking they will be wonderful presents either for themselves or for other people. What some don't realize is that a dog is not a "present" to be played with and then forgotten like so many other toys.

This informational photo says it all. Please share with anyone you feel needs to read this.

My home is on Kauai HI and i am looking for a Cairn terrier.
Hi there - in looking over your website, it looks like you are no longer doing rescue/adoptions?
I have been looking for a Cairn for a while, and they are so hard to find... are you still helping to match up people and cairns?
I lost 2 this past year, and the house is not the same without a cairn....
Today is Luke’s GotCha Day! One year ago Bill & I added this sweet now-10 1/2 year old Cairn Terrier to our family. Luke was a chunky monkey, apartment dweller, pleaser weighing in at 23 pounds with various health issues. Now, he’s a healthy, spirited 16-pound senior little guy.
We thank the Potomac Cairn Terrier Club Rescue for enriching our lives!
We lost our 13 year old cairn terrier “Kirby” suddenly a year and a half ago. There isn’t a day that goes by we don’t miss him and are now are actively looking to adopt/rescue.
We live in Delaware and willing to travel to find a little cairn looking for his forever home.
Prefer Wheaton color and up to 5 years old . A home isn’t the same without a cairn.
Any info/leads would be appreciated. Thanks!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Five months ago this sweet boy named Luke came into our lives. Well, today he’s 10!! Luke is happy, healthy & fit. We walk about 3 miles/day and 5 miles on the weekend. He’s a very contented boy! Thank you, PCTCR!!
Happy to welcome Middleburg Humane Foundation, Blue Ridge Wildlife Center, War Horses at Rose Bower, and Potomac Cairn Terrier Club - Rescue to the Blessing of the Animals. Stop by their tables to learn more about their programs. https://www.facebook.com/events/417052698947211/
Over a month now and Luke is doing beautifully! We’re up to 3 1/2 miles on our daily walk and he’s down 3 lbs! Working on recall command (always) and Drop It! Luke likes to eat bugs & skinks. Thank you, PCTR and Lois Cleland!! 🥰
