Cairn Terrer Dog Breed Information

Best known as Toto from the Wizard of Oz, the Cairn Terrier is a small, hardy working terrier. The Cairn originated in the Highlands of Scotland and the Isle of Skye, initially grouped in the "Skye Terrier" class alongside the Scottish and West Highland White Terriers.

In the early 1900s, the three breeds began to be bred separately. The name Cairn refers to the rock dens that foxes and badgers lived in throughout the countryside. The dog would squirm down into these "cairns" and bark to hold the predator until the farmer killed it.
