Cairn Terrier

This little dog is of Scottish origin, and is one of the oldest breeds of terriers. It is short-legged, muscular and has a small tail upright. His hair is quite long, hard and abundant. It may be cream-colored, red, gray or black. You will have to groom from time to time for its fur is beautiful! It is a little curious and brave companion, he is not afraid of anything! It is also very affectionate, sometimes a little too much: it is best to avoid leaving him alone with young children as it is very active, and it is not known for his patience ... He can be stubborn sometimes: you will have to educate him firmly!
