We are located in Tupelo, MS, birthplace of Elvis Presley! Bodock Ridge is home to beautiful Cairn Terriers bred both for the show ring and as pets.
Our goal as breeders and exhibitors is to produce healthy, well-tempered, quality puppies for families as life long companions as well as for the show ring. We welcome visitors so you can meet our dog family and see for yourself the quality and temperament.
The Cairn was originally from Scotland and earned his keep routing vermin from the rock piles (called cairns). Today, the Cairn is a sensible, confident little dog, independent but friendly with everyone he meets. Alert, intelligent, and long-lived, the Cairn tends to remain active and playful well into his teen years. A popular slogan is, "Cairns are the best little pal in the world". This is true whether they live in a home filled with children or with empty nesters.
The Cairn possesses a harsh, weather-resistant outer coat that can be any color except white. Cairns are known for their non or very minimal shedding. The hair around the head gives them a general foxy expression.
We are members of The Cairn Terrier Club of America (CTCA), Tupelo Kennel Club, and The Cairn Terrier Club of the Midsouth.
Thought for the day:
Always attempt to live your life so that you are as wonderful as your dog thinks you are.
