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
News of recently rescued Cairns
Update on Poppy (5th July 2019)
Poppy is no longer in need of a new home, she went to her new home yesterday.
Our Trustee John says: ‘She was a delight on the journey, not a peep out of her. Within minutes of arriving at her new home she was exploring the surroundings and playing with Toby, her new brother. Her new Mum was obviously very taken with her. Have a very long and happy life together’
Poppy (1st July 2019)
Poppy, a 20 month old spayed bitch needs a new home through no fault of her own.
Poppy is currently near Middlesbrough
She didn’t have the best start in life and will need a home where someone is around most of the time as she gets panicky if confined.
She walks well on the lead but tends to be nervous, particularly with lorries. She’s not keen on the dark and would benefit from a walk last thing before bed.
She is fine with other dogs.
She is micro-chipped and up-to date with her vaccinations.
If you feel that you can give Poppy a home please contact our Trustee, John Francis, on 07766 168869 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org “
Update on Robbie (23rd March 2019):
Robbie is now reserved.
Robbie (23rd March 2019):
Robbie a lovely natured 11 year old wheaten castrated male who needs a home that can make the rest of his life happy again.
Over the last few years he has lost both his owners and his dog companion, which has made him very sad and lonely. He loves his walks and will happily walk for an hour twice a day. While on his walks he will ignore other dogs but dislikes ducks as he has been attacked by them. He hasn’t lived with children or cats.
Robbie is in Kent. Vets fees will be paid for by CTRF.
If you feel you can give Robbie the loving home and secure home, he deserves, please contact our Trustee:

Any members live in or near the greater Manchester area. Please check out Tameside Huskies Facebook page. We have a very large totally secure enclosed field and extensive enclosed woodland for dogs to be let off lead in complete safety knowing it’s totally inescapable. There are videos and lots of photos on our page showing you what it’s like. If it’s husky proof it will be terrier proof. There is a charge to rent the field £15 for one hour for upto 8 dogs . But if there is a large group who wish to utilise it I’m sure we can arrange a special deal for you as the dogs are much smaller than our Huskies (56kg+) ... See MoreSee Less
15th July UPDATE. Thank you Lorraine for this great update. Can't believe it's a year ago <3 Update 15th July - Bobby ""We can’t believe that Bobby has been with us a year today and what a year it’s been. He is such a gorgeous little boy and we love him to bits.
He loves his walks and every one is an adventure. He turns into a predator on alert for squirrels, foxes and birds and loves to meet up with all his doggy friends (and owners with treats). This is wonderful to see as he was very anxious around most other dogs during the early days.
In the home Bobby becomes such a very loving, sensitive boy who likes nothing more than snuggling up next to us. But he also takes very seriously his job of monitoring any potential visitors and surveillance of anything that comes through the letterbox. Our newspaper is a regular casualty and most of our post has Bobby’s mark on it including a CD with a hole in it and a personalised iPad protector case with additional personalisation by Bobby.
We have had a few breaks with Bobby in Kent, Ambleside and Northumbria which he has loved and we have driven out to the beach in Crosby several times where he particularly enjoys leaving his scent on the statues on the beach. He has also been to London several times to visit our daughters and is like a seasoned traveller on the trains, tubes and buses which he has just taken in his stride.
Our eldest daughter got a Cairn puppy in November and we were a little concerned as to how they would be but Evie has been to stay a few times now and they are very good together which has been wonderful to see.
I cannot thank John Francis, Cairn Terrier Rescue and Bobby’s previous owners enough for letting Bobby join our family and I tell him every day that he is the best phone call I ever made. ... See MoreSee Less
