Looking for a new family member!


Recommended Posts


I am new to the forum and wanted to ask a couple questions.

We (my boyfriend Brian, our chocolate lab Tank, and myself) are looking for a new family member. After tons of research and discussions we found the Cairn terrier to be the best fit. I would like a female because I am the only female in the house

My questions are....

1. Does anyone know of any quality breeders in the Tampa Bay area? We did a lot of research when looking for Tank and after meeting several breeders we found one that shared the same values. We are not looking for a show dog. We just want a fun, healthy, energetic family member.

2. Do you think a Cairn can hold its own with a chocolate lab. Tank is 9 months old, yet fairly laid back for a lab. We take him to the dog park quite often and he loves to swim in the pool. I don't know if he is laid back or just worn out, either way he is a great dog. That being said he is probably going to be at least 70lbs.

Any advice on anything Cairn related would be greatly appreciated.
