Meet Brownley: A Cairn Terrier Chihuahua Mix


We are Pleased to Announce that God has added a new member to our family. His name is Brownley. He came into our lives rather suddenly. We have been wanting a dog since we first bought our home 7 months ago and even put a deposit on a maltipoo in January, but the timing just wasn't right. Then last Sunday night after evening service one of the families approached my husband about a puppy they wanted to find a home for. By the time I gathered the children and headed outside Chris already had the puppy in his hands and the kids loved him.  Still we decided to go home and pray about it research the breeds and price the supplies. 
     It turns out there is not too much info online of the mix of cairn terrier and chihuahua. This is all I could find.

Cairn Terrier / Chihuahua Hybrid Dogs

The Toxirn is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Cairn Terrier and the Chihuahua.
     The carin terrier has a great reputation. This breed was made famous by the movie "The Wizard of Oz." Toto is a cairn terrier. Chihuaha's I am not too fond of becuase the only one I have met was really grouchy! With love and proper training our puppy should turn out to be quite the model dog citizen! 

 I am learning all about crate training.

 Christian is very good with him so far.

 Joshua is a little rough so he must be supervised with little Brownley.

 He whined in his crate the first night.
 Rachel likes him from a distance.

 He falls asleep just about anywhere.

 He has been going potty outside more than inside so far =)

 Noah recreating a scene from the Wizard of Oz......he has never seen the movie though...lol.

Rachel is still adjusting to him =)

He looks very sweet and happy to of found a nice home.

Crate training can look cruel when you don't understand it but I have learned that it is best for both the dog and the owners. We crated our dog Theo, he is 9 now, and it worked great. He was happy in his crate when we were gone and he happily slept there.
The crate becomes their safe and quiet spot and they like it.
Now that he is old and well behaved, we don't have the crate anymore but if we ever get another puppy, we will crate it too.

Thank you for the motivation Rhonda, it was soooo hard not putting him in the bed with us the first night with him yelping =( I know the crate training is in everyone's best interest long term though =)
