Scottish Terrier Dog Breed Information


Scottish Terrier DogScottish Terriers are a breed of dog best known for their distinctive profile and their die-hard spirit. The Scottish Terrier or Scottie has been aptly described as a gentleman. It is an honest dog that will not look for trouble but on finding it will always fight fairly. It is a devoted companion to its owner but has little time for strangers and is not the most suitable of dogs for a family with children or a couple intending to add to their family. It will fight fox or badger but enjoys itself just as much in an energetic ball game and likes nothing better than carrying a stick or a ball in its mouth. Altogether an attractive and sporty little animal.

Appearance

A Scottish Terrier, or Scottie, is a small but resilient terrier. Scotties are fast and have a muscular body, often appearing to be barrel chested. Its traditional grooming is shaggy-to-the-ground. The usual coat color ranges from dark gray to jet black. Scotties with Wheaten (straw to nearly white) coats sometimes occur, but should not be confused with the Wheaten Terrier or West Highland White Terrier.

History

They were originally bred in Scotland (their first name was the Aberdeen Terrier) about 1700, but had achieved their final size and shape by 1890. Scotties are natural "diggers", like other terriers, whose name derives from the same root as "terre", French for "earth". Their nickname is "little diehard" from James III of England, the King descended from the Scottish line.
