Abbie the Silky Cairn at 18 months old"Abbie is a very balanced wee dog with a lovely nature. She likes to explore and lives with a 13 year old Australian Terrier named Luka. She is very playful and loves walks, Schmackos and bones. She sits very still in the car and doesnt move. Bit of a thief, she loves checking out bedside tables and coffee tables!"

Description

The Silky Cairn is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Cairn Terrier and the Silky Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
