Current Rescue Dogs – Cairn Terrier Relief Fund

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.

Cairns in Need of a New Home


Marley a dark brindle 15 month old neutered dog needs an experienced owner who is able to train Marley in not thinking he is the boss.

He has had two previous owners one of which was elderly and died, the subsequent owner seems unable to manage him.
He is ok with dogs outside the home but should not live with young children or other dogs.

We would initially like a foster home for Marley.

Marley is in Essex but can be transported to another area within a reasonable distance.

If you are interested in Fostering Marley with the possibility of adopting him, please contact our trustee

Chris Hewitt (not before 9am or after 9pm):

Telephone:  01689828788.

* Marley was added to the website on 25th July 2017.

News of recently rescued Cairns

Hamish (18th July 2017)

Update on Hamish (18th July 2017):

Hamish has been reserved.


Hamish is looking for a new home. He is a three year old dog, presently in Edinburgh. He has been much loved but his elderly owners are unable to give him the exercise which he needs.

He is a lively lad, with a lovely temperament and would love a home where he could have the opportunity to work off his energy. He could possibly live with a female dog but not a male.
