Cairn Terrier Calendars feature the vivacious little Cairn Terrier, active, hardy, small working terrier. They are able to prove their worth as a dispeller of vermin. Cairn Terriers are free in movement, strong, but not heavily built. Their head is shorter and wider than any other terriers and well furnished with hair giving a general foxy expression. Cairn Terriers are a wonderful family dog, but will always remember their ancestry as a "sporting terrier". Their original use was for digging out vermin from the "cairns" of Scotland, which are piles of stones used for graves. They make a very active, inquisitive and "ready to go" dog. Cairns will be willing to go whenever you please. They are a great dog for the house, plus Cairn Terriers are good with children. Energetic and always on the watch, they will alert you to the presence of strangers by growling. They remain lively and friendly, and generally described as more mellow than the other terriers. They crave affection, are eager to please, and make a good family pet. They are plucky and bold, unafraid of what small animals may lurk in the underbrush. Excellent for ratting and ridding the house and yard of all kinds of pests, the Cairn Terrier is clever, curious and independent. Having the mind of a terrier, they can be scrappy with other dogs and stubborn with their owners, but generally have little problems with training. Cairn Terrier Calendars.
