Here are some of the Cairn Terriers re-homed this current year. We wish them all the best of luck for their futures in their forever homes.
Update on Andy, 15th June 2017:
We have some good news about Andy – he is now reserved and will be going to his new home next week. It couldn’t be better because his new owner has experience of Cairns and skin conditions. He has a long way to travel ‘up north’ but CTRF are managing the transfer and it will be worth it for this lovely boy. We wish Andy and his new mum well and would like to thank all those who enquired about him.
ANDY is a 9 year old red Cairn dog who is neutered and vaccinated. He is a sweet little chap who has lots of love to give to the right person. Unfortunately he has had a tough few years due to a long term skin condition. This will need on going treatment and this will be paid for by Cairn Terrier Relief Fund. Sadly he has had to have his tail amputated due to an old injury that was not treated.
Understandably and perhaps due to being in pain and discomfort, he is anxious when being handled for treatment to his skin, eyes wiped, ears cleaned nails clipped etc. He will snap sometimes so will need muzzling when treatment is administered. Hopefully, as his condition improves he may be able to tolerate this better.
Andy was quite nervous when he first came to me. He would shy away when approached and when pushed would snap. After a week he has become very attached to me following me around the house and garden, but will still shy away if I suddenly approach him too quickly or there is a sudden noise.
He will need a new owner who is very sympathetic to his needs and is willing to continue to work with his skin condition. A home with NO children OR visiting children is a must (no exceptions!). He can live with an older calm bitch who will not bother him too much. He has been no trouble with my dogs but does prefer human company.
If you are interested in giving Andy a home you must be prepared to come to West Sussex to meet him first. Please contact me either by email email@example.com or phone 02392 631114 (please leave a message if no answer)
Update on Charlie (13th April 2017):
Charlie has now been reserved.
Charlie (11th April 2017):
Charlie is a six year old castrated dark brindle male who through no fault of his own, is in need of a loving home. His owner’s family circumstances mean they reluctantly have to part with him.
He is a fun loving dog, who would do well as a ball boy at Wimbledon, as he likes nothing better than playing catch and bringing the ball back. He has mixed with other dogs and gets on well, a home on his own or with a bitch would be preferable, he is good with children, children over 10 would be ideal.
If you can give this happy lively dog a home, please contact our trustee Chris Hewitt on:
Telephone: 01689828788 not before 9am or after 9pm or
Charlie is currently in Kent.
Update on Rusty (3rd April 2017):
Rusty went to his new home 2nd week in March 2017 and has settled well. The top photograph is the latest one.
This is what his new owner has to say about him:
“This is Rusty, I am so delighted to have him. He has settled in a treat! Such a good boy who comes to work with me, loves meeting other people and dogs including his four cairn cousins! Loves his walks and playing. He also loves snoozing in my office. Thank you for letting me have him. We are getting on a famously!”
We would like to thank Rusty’s new owner for giving him a home and for updating us.
Update on Rusty (7th March 2017):
Rusty has now been reserved.
Rusty, 6th March 2017:
Rusty a 7 year old dark brindle neutered male needs a new home through no fault of his own, as sadly Rusty’s elderly owner has dementia.
Rusty has never really mixed with children on a regular basis, so no children under the age of 12 years, he hasn’t lived with other dogs either, but on a walk he is happy to mix with other dogs, he doesn’t like cats. He is a friendly dog and used to company during the day. He is in Essex –
If you could give Rusty the home he deserves, please contact.our Trustee Chris Hewitt

Update on Shona (30th March 2017):
Shona is now reserved and we would like to thank all those who showed an interest in adopting her. We hope that all goes well for Shona when she joins her new family.
Shona is looking for a new home (28th March 2017):
Shona is a wheaten, neutered, 11 year old, bitch. She really needs to be on her own She has been showing aggression towards her house mate (another bitch who is the same age), but has not shown any aggression towards the male cairn in the household. Despite this I feel she would still be better on her own. No issues towards people.
She is in the Northampton/Wellingborough area.
Rescue will pay for any medical care for the rest of her life, except for routine vaccinations, worm and flea treatments.
The photo is one taken a year ago.
Please call our Trustee Wendy Laker on 02392 631114 or
Ollie – rehomed in March, 2017:
Ollie was rehomed by CTRF during March, 2017. We are very happy to have this update from his new family:
“Hello, we would like you to meet Ollie. Thanks to your helper Leanne in Northern Ireland and Chris Roberts, little Ollie came to live with us about 4 weeks ago when he was only about 7 or 8 weeks old having been found in an empty crisp packet in a park. He is now 12 weeks old and loving life. He has made us all very happy. Thank you to everyone at CTRF! ”
Thank you from CTRF for giving Ollie a lovely new home.
Update 21st February 2017:
Good news – Fudge has now been adopted.
Fudge is a 4 yr old Cairn/ Westie bitch. She was not coping with being the middle dog of three and started behaving very aggressively towards the oldest one so has had to be rehomed.
On her own, Fudge is a delightful, friendly, loving wee dog who just wants a lot of attention and must be the only animal in the household although she is OK with other dogs outside. She is not used to children so we would prefer her to go where there are no young children either living in the house or regularly visiting. She is presently in Edinburgh.

Maisie was adopted via our trustee John Francis in January of this year. We are grateful for an update from Maisie herself, who has taken the time to put paw to paper. Here is what she has to say – it’s pawsome!:
“Hello Uncle John and Auntie Val and the Chorley Crew!
It’s Maisie! I wanted to let you know how I was doing and thank you and the Cairn Terrier Relief Fund. I have settled into my new home in the Yorkshire Dales with my new Mum and Dad. When I first arrived at my new home, it was all a bit different for me. I have trained my new Mum and Dad to throw the ball for me outside and I have learnt to walk off the lead on long walks. I’m enjoying my walks in the countryside where I can participate in my new hobby of rabbit watching. Dad has told me I mustn’t chase rabbits, though it is okay to watch them. On days when the weather is bad I have to play indoors, though I much prefer chasing the ball in my garden. On walks through my village I have made friends with other dogs, Oscar the Border Collie and Sage the Pointer.
On a night I love to cuddle up on my Dad’s lap and sit on the puffee seat watching wildlife programmes with Dad and keeping Dad’s chair warm for him! I enjoy cuddling up next to mum on the sofa, helping my Mum, who is a teacher, plan her lessons and mark her books and exam papers. On a weekend, once a month, I visit Mum and Dad’s family and I have made a new friend with Jess the Border Collie, who I enjoy bossing around and playing with in the park.
Mum and Dad bought me a lovely warm basket to sleep in, though I prefer to sleep on a wool blanket on Mum and Dad’s bed where I can be close to them and keep them warm and enjoy the benefits of early morning cuddles off them and make sure Dad takes me out for my first walk of the day. I’m also very excited as I was told this week I will be going on my first holiday to the Lake District at the end of July 2017 with Mum and Dad and I will be staying with my Uncle John and Auntie Val for two weeks in August whilst Mum and Dad will be in France.
I will be attending the CTRF’s Cairntastic Fun Day on the 3rd September 2017 in Leicestershire, where I look forward to making new friends with fellow Cairn Terriers and I hope to demonstrate how well I have trained my new Mum and Dad.”
Thank you very much Maisie – it is is so nice to hear how happy you are with your new mum and dad.
Update on Scotty (20th March 2017):
” Scotty is very happy in his new home. Here he is being recalled first time off the lead. He had a blast today. “
The top photograph is the most recent one of Scotty.
Update on Scotty (31st January 2017):
Scotty is now reserved and will be going to his new home at the end of next week.
Scotty (18th January 2017):
Scotty is a loveable 9 year old neutered dog who is in need of a new home.
His previous owner has died, the temporary carer, feels he needs to live in a semi rural or rural area, as where he currently lives is very busy and he isn’t good with other dogs while out for a walk.
Scotty is living with a Cairn bitch, who he gets on well with and is currently in South West London.
If you feel you can give plenty of time to Scotty and the home he deserves please contact out trustee Chris Hewitt:
Telephone: 01689 828788 (not before 9am or after 9pm).
Update on Flurry (31st January 2017):
Flurry has now gone to her new home.
Flurry (20th January, 2017):
Flurry is a five year old female Cairn Terrier who is in need of a new home. She is in the care of Many Tears Rescue and is currently located in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire. Information about Flurry can be found on the Many Tears website here.
Update on Misty (30th January 2017):
We have received an update on Misty who was adopted in January of this year. She was not advertised on our Facebook page or website, she went to someone on our wait list.
Misty (Dark Brindle) arrived at my house and was welcomed by myself and my 7 year-old Cairn called Judy (Wheaten).
Whilst there was joy and excitement in my heart there was also some sadness for Misty, as up to a couple of hours ago she was in her home, which she’d know for 6 years.
I did everything I could to make her feel welcome and loved, also making a fuss of Judy. We settled down for our first night as a new family.
Ten days later she’s up to speed with all the new routines and Judy is showing her how to play.
For the last 2 years Judy has been missing her big brother and withdrew when at home.. but in 10 days I can see a huge improvement and it’s lovely to see her with the spark she once had, this is because of Misty. Not only has Misty found her forever home, she’s got a big sister as well and me an owner that will love them both unconditionally…life is Wooftastic again x
