I had a couple of suggetions for your Chessie, but it sounds like you're pretty set on rehoming him. Good luck on that!

On any other dog you plan on getting, do EXTENSIVE research, talk to every since cairn owner you run across, heck, even go to dog shows and find the carins there. This applies to any breed you might want to get. Cairns are neat little terriers, but they are terriers which means they can/will be: stubborn, tendency towards obsessive, hyper, intense, stubborn, too smart for their own good. Obedience classes and knowing how to keep your place as "top-dog" in the house are two very key things.

Yep, 14 wks of pure meaness! LOL

He's a handful, fortunately I did a lot of research on hunting dogs before deciding on a chessie. He's an amazing dog, but already challenging me for alpha spot sometimes!

I was going to suggest desensitizing him to the door bell. Call up a bunch of your friends and enlist their help. Have them come up to the door one at a time with a dog treat in hand, ring the door bell and then wait while you get your Chessie into a sit or down or at least not lunging. Then have them give him the dog treats and leave. Wait a minute and repeat. Increase the time your friends are in the house and have them continually dole out treats as they are there. It might take a bit, but eventually your dog should start connecting "doorbell=treats for me!"

These things really work, and contrary to what some may say here, they don't hurt the dog.

Just stuns them. They change their behaviior really quick as they start to associate a bad feeling with it.
