Scottish Terrier - Dog Breed Info

Apr 18, 2008
The Scottish Terriers, or "Scotties" as they are affectionately known are a beautiful breed of terriers that were bred in the Scottish Highlands. These jaunty likeable dogs have a wonderful step and look to them. They are very sensitive, however to any form of correction. These guys love to walk and make excellent apartment dwellers. These guys need exercise and can develop temperament troubles if not being exercised daily. They also do well in a fenced in yard. Play is vital for a happy Scottie to keep happy and healthy. As a puppy, they are boisterous, but as an adult, they become more serious.

These guys come in black, brindle and tan. The black form is the one that is most identified with these lovable terriers. This being said, this breed is solid and is short, with a long wiry coat. Their top coat isn't so wiry. Constant brushing of their coat is necessary to remove buildup of hair in the outer and inner coat. This prevents matted hair and making the terrier miserable in the heat of some places. They do have a temperament of being happy but can snap at people. However, this trait isn't as pronounced as it is with many of the other terrier breeds.

These dogs are good watch dogs and are used as such in a variety of ways. They are also used for fox hunting as well as chasing vermin. This wonderful dog is a spirited and very faithful companion. There are many examples of famous people that own Scotties. George Bush is one that comes to mind. These lovable dogs offer fantastic companionship and friendship. That bond can be broken though with or through mistreatment or harsh attempts to correct them. Bear this in mind when selecting a Scottie for your very own.

They are wonderful indoor dogs as well. These wonderful terriers can become close companions to you and provide a long lasting, lifetime friendship. Feeding and care of your Scottie is essential to a happy, healthy, well behaved dog. Keep all vet appointments and shots to keep your Scottie healthy for long years of companionship. In the end, your relationship with the Scottie is life enriching, long term friendship. You couldn't ask for better in a loyal companion. This also goes for any children that you may have. They also will have a long term companion for as long as they live.
