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.

Cairns in Need of a New Home

Freddie and George

Update on Freddie and George (7th November 2019):

Freddie and George have now been rehomed on the usual one month trial.

Update on Freddie and George (30th October 2019):

Freddie and George have now been reserved. We thank all those people who expressed an interest in these two Cairns.

Freddie and George (11th October 2019)

Freddie and George are nine year old castrated male Cairn Terriers who are in need of a new home through no fault of their own. They originally lived on a farm and were used for racing but as they have slowed down a bit racing was no longer possible.

A lovely lady has taken them on for a few weeks while we find them a good home. They are now house trained and in her words they are lovely dogs. They have always been together and we want a home that will take them both. They are currently in the Bromley area of Kent.

If you feel you could give this lovable pair the home they deserve please contact Chris Hewitt:
Telephone: 01689 828788 (not before 9am or after 9pm).

News of recently rescued Cairns


Update (4th September 2019):

Aila is now reserved.


Aila (4th September 2019):

Aila is a 17 month-old bitch who is seeking to move to pastures new but needs to be the only dog in the home.

She’s not spayed, but the C.T.R.F. will meet the cost of the procedure.

She loves to be outside and loves her toys, especially balls and will hold one in her mouth whilst playing football with another.

She’s fine with other dogs outside the house, nervous of lorries but getting better and would chase motorbikes if not on the lead.

She’s possessive of food and bones but not toys.

She is currently in South Yorkshire.

If you would like to offer Aila the new home that she’s looking for please contact our Trustee, John Francis:

Telephone: 07766 168869

Bella and Robbie

Update on Bella and Robbie 20th August 2019.

From our Trustee John –

“Sunday Morning,9.15, the landline rings.  Urgent re-homing needed for 2 or possibly 3 Cairns following the passing of the owner.  All avenues for their care have been exhausted as all local kennels are full.

After a phone call to the lady who had the dogs, I jumped in the car & drove to East Yorkshire to collect 2 of the 3.  The 3rd is being kept in the family.

Brought them home and introduced them to my resident pack which went remarkably smoothly.

I had no-one waiting for 2 dogs on my list so a post on Facebook elicited a 10 p.m. phone call asking if a couple could come and see them on Monday morning which they duly did.  Robbie needed to go the the Vet so on Monday afternoon, after the Vet’s I took them to what will hopefully be their forever home.They are on the usual 1 months trial.

Tuesday morning (today) I received a text letting me know that they had been as good as gold overnight, Bella was currently disembowelling all the soft toys and Robbie was snuffling in the Garden.

Fingers crossed for a long and happy life in your new home Robbie & Bella. “

Bella and Robbie are now reserved.

Bella and Robbie 19th August 2019

Bella and Robbie are looking for a home together as their owner has passed away.

Bella is a 10 year old wheaten bitch and Robbie is a 6 year old grey brindle neutered male.  Both are up-to-date with their vaccinations, are microchipped and had a comprehensive health check on Thursday.

Bella is somewhat overweight but otherwise very healthy.  Robbie has an issue with one of his ears at the moment and, according to the Vet is borderline Dry Eye but the CTRF will pay any Vet bills relating to these conditions.

They are both friendly with people and other dogs and can live with children.  They like to chase cats and bark at the Postman, so are proper Cairns.

If you would like to offer these two a home please contact our Trustee John Francis on:

Telephone: 07766 168869 or 01257 270079.
