I recently adopted a purebred cairn terrier. The owner told me that he is 8 weeks old and he is 2.9 lbs, I wonder if that is the average weight for cairn terrier puppies at that age. He seems too small but I just dont know.

When my Cairn was picked up at 8 weeks he was 3.1 lbs so that is normal

I have had cairns for over 15 years and I feed them only once a day. When they are no longer puppies, they only have to go out 2x.Once in the AM before you go to work and after you feed them.They are very addaptable to a working owner. When you are not there, they sleep. They do need lots of attention before you leave and when you return.
