Cairn Terrier: Cairn terriers originated on the Isle of Skye, off the coast of Scotland. Skilled and courageous working dogs, old-world cairn terriers would bolt rodents and small mammals from cairns, or piles of rocks. Modern breeders of the dogs attempt to preserve the character of old-world cairn terriers.
