The Scottie dog has been a working terrier from the
Small in Stature - Big in Heart
highlands of Scotland for many centuries. It was his job to
rout the vermin like the fox and the otter. His efficiency at
this earned him high regard by the local gamekeepers.
A sturdy low-set, compact, well muscled terrier breed
with a very keen, sharp and active expression gives the
impression of immense power in a small size. His harsh
wiry jacket comes in grey, brindle, black or wheaten. The
coat should be stripped to maintain the best texture, but
pets may be clipped, albeit the coat texture will soften.
Although scrappy with other dogs, like many breeds, the
Scottie dog is very loyal, loving, playful and an excellent
watchdog. He enjoys the outdoors, and a daily walk.
Obedience training for a Scottish Terrier puppy
would be worthwhile. He is adaptable to
almost any accommodation.
