Well, I am not a expert, but Cairns were bred to kill vermin. So I would keep it high off the ground and away from the dog and maybe occasionally show the gerbil to the dog. And let it sniff the gerbil, but if it starts to growl I would hurry and take it away. Also with your Chihuahua. I would ease the dog into meeting your Chihuahua. Because I have two of my own Cairns and the female is very donimant. Please remember I am not a expert. This is just knowledge that I have learned on the internet and from experiance from my own two dogs. Every dog is different, so the results might be different for your Cairn.
