Available Cairn Terrier Puppies

We have no available Cairn puppies, but hope to by the end of this year.   

Please check back for an update in the near future.

As an introduction, let me say I have had Cairns for more than 40 years.  I have been showing and breeding for 25 years.  I am very pleased with the bloodlines in my kennel as they go back to some great winners, as well as healthy long-lived dogs – my primary concern!  I have a small kennel with both Cairn and Welsh Terriers.  Additionally, I am a member in good standing with the National Club for both breeds.  

In 2017, I was approved by the American Kennel Club to judge these breeds at AKC shows.

My Cairn pet puppies sell for $2,200.00.  

On occasion, there could be an adult who is being retired from breeding. These possibilities are available for considerably less money. 

Not all pups are destined for the show ring and are available as pets to approved homes, with a spay/neuter contract.  I offer a health guarantee, together with a full refund return policy within the first two weeks.  

Pups are raised in my home with lots of love and socialization. By the time those pups leave, they have had their first puppy shot, been wormed, micro-chipped.  Additionally I follow the Parent Club's recommendation to have ultrasounds done on kidneys and bile acid tests to confirm healthy liver function - these last two tests are performed at 12 weeks.  Afterwards, pups are ready to be released to their new home.  During the last few weeks, pups are introduced to sleeping in crates.  By the time they leave, they  are sleeping quietly through the night in their own crate.  Plus, that crate is clean in the morning when they come out. They are still not housebroken but are certainly on their way to becoming clean and well-mannered members of their future family.  

The Cairn Terrier Club of America actively encourages Breeders to test litters for conditions that can affect the health of a pup, as well as adults in their breeding program.  To not use this science would be irresponsible.  Thus, I endorse and make use of these tests to assure I am offering healthy pups.  The costs of being a responsible breeder add up and ultimately impact the price of a pup.  Yes, there are pups that can be found for a lot less money, but if their health is not scrutinized as youngsters, you gamble on a health problem popping up with an expensive treatment program. 

There are very few Cairn Terriers available, and those that become available are promised quickly.  Most Cairn Terrier breeders have waiting lists for both show and pet puppies.  So getting a Cairn from a reputable breeder can be a lengthy process. It is best to find breeders within driving distance so that you can visit their kennels, see how the dogs are raised, and meet the older dogs, as this is a much better indication of temperament and personality than only seeing puppies.  If you have never spent time around a Cairn terrier, then visits like this are even more important to understand the breed better.

Yes, it can be frustrating to wait for a Cairn terrier, but this dog is going to be a member of your family for the next fourteen years or longer.  Thus, a good dog from a reputable breeder is well worth the wait.

Below are some websites that can offer more information on the Cairn Terrier:

If you would like to be considered for one of my pups, please tell me more about yourself, the puppy’s future family and home environment.

As always, I am happy to discuss the breed and try to answer questions you may have.
