Scottish Deerhound Information
The Scottish Deerhound is a stately dog. He has the sleek build of a Greyhound, only larger in size, but with a thick, shaggy coat that comes in several colors although the blue-gray color is preferred. His history dates back to antiquity. Experts believe he may have descended from the ancient Irish Wolfdog.
As a pet, the Scottish Deerhound is a calm, polite breed who prefers to hang out at home. His docile nature makes him a great companion but not the best watchdog. Once you see this dog snuggle up on the couch next to you – which he will! – it won’t matter; he’s perfect just the way he is. You will love his perceptive, sweet personality.
