We have had Cairn Terriers for 20 years and now have our first Havanese who is 4 months old. Cairn Terriers (best known as Toto from Wizard of Oz) are a very spirited and fun loving small dog breed that doesn't shed. They are independent and not too clingy while still being playful and family-oriented. When we had children at home, they fit in well with a busy household. Now that we are empty nesters, I find them a little too independent. They would rather bark at the window than watch TV with me. So we did a lot of research and so far are quite pleased with a Havanese which seems very similar in terms of spirit and fun loving nature but more "velcro".
We still have one Cairn (Jasper) at home who is getting along very well with our puppy Ruby.
