Current Rescue Dogs

Please note that if there are no Cairns currently listed on this page, this doesn’t mean there aren’t any being rescued. Often dogs come in to us very fast and are re-homed immediately to people on our lists.

If we have no current dogs in rescue this page will display a selection of stories and pictures of Cairns who have recently been adopted.

We are also happy to display on this page Cairns who are in the care of other dog rescue organisations. If you wish to use this facility, please get in touch with our Facebook administrator here.

News of recently rescued Cairns


Update on Bentley (14th September 2018):

Bentley has now gone to his new home on the usual one month trial. We hope that everything goes well for Bentley and his new family. CTRF would also like to thank all those who expressed an interest in him.

Update on Bentley (8th September 2018):

Bentley is now reserved.

Bentley (30th August 2018):

BENTLEY is 11 month old, red brindle male, neutered and house trained.  He is a typical, bouncy, fun loving young lad who enjoys both dog and human company. Loves his walks, has some recall off lead but I feel this would be out of the window if exciting things appeared, such as dogs and people.  He loves playing with tuggy toys and chasing balls in the garden.  He is a typical cairn “teenager” in that he knows his own mind and doesn’t always do as asked!

The negative side of Bentley is that when he gets over excited or stressed he will mount/hump any thing that moves and will need firm but sensitive handling with this issue.  He is quite hand shy and will back off significantly when you try to put his collar, lead, harness on, or if you want to stroke/pet him until he knows and trusts you. He also is extremely bouncy, jumping up at people. He will still steal items such as socks, shoes and anything else that isn’t nailed down especially if he is bored and wants your attention. He hates being groomed or having his face and feet handled.

Type of home needed:

Bentley needs an active but calm and quiet home.  NO YOUNG CHILDREN, older teenagers would be considered.  His jumping up and mounting people is rather intimidating and will frighten children.   I have not been able to test him with cats but I would not be comfortable homing him with any cats.  He can live with another dog or bitch.

For more information on Bentley please contact Wendy Laker: or

Bentley is currently in West Sussex

Update on Ludo (14th September 2018):

Ludo has now gone to his new home on the usual one month trial. We hope that all goes well for Ludo and his new family. CTRF thank all those who expressed an interest in him.

Update on Ludo (30th August 2018):

Ludo has had many enquirers and is now reserved. We thank everyone who expressed an interest in Ludo.

Ludo (27th August 2018):

Ludo is a 6yr old big bouncy dark brindle boy. He’s neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

He would love the company of a lady dog, but think he could be happy with an only male neutered dog. He is house trained and loves car travel. He loves long walks on a long lead so he can get to do lots of sniffing…he does pull on a short lead! He is extremely friendly, exuberant and talkative. Like most terriers, he likes to dig and bark at birds.

Can anyone give him a forever home please? He is living at Cirencester, Gloucester.
