Young, Housebroken Cairn Available

This little Cairn Terrier named J.R. needs a forever home. J.R. gets along well with other dogs and cats but definitely needs a home where he has someone who is used to a Cairn and has either a secure fenced yard or enjoys walking him on leash for exercise.

J.R. is loving, housebroken, up to date on shots, free from parasites and young.

If you are interested, please fill out our adoption application online at

Once you have completed the application, please feel free to give CTCSC rescue coordinator Karen Smith a call at 760-728-7133.

Toto Memorial Dedication June 18, 11 A.M.

Toto memorial model by sculptor Roman Gal
Photo: Courtesy J.P. Myers
Last fall a campaign was launched on Facebook to raise money for a permanent memorial in honor of Terry, the Cairn Terrier who played Toto in the original "Wizard of Oz" movie. J.P. Myers and Steve Goldstein initiated this effort in response to learning that Terry's original burial site on the ranch owned by her trainer Carl Spitz had been destroyed during the construction of the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley.
Well good news! Hollywood Forever Cemetery, final resting place of such legends as Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, and Victor Fleming who directed The Wizard of Oz, has donated a VIP plot and commissioned a sculpted memorial.
The dedication of the Toto memorial is set for Saturday, June 18, at 11 a.m. We hope all club members, friends and dogs will join in this historic event.
