Scottish Terrier Information

Scottish TerrierThe Scottish Terrier, or Scottie as he’s affectionately called, has a distinct look that’s easily recognizable: compact body, short legs, long head, piercing eyes, upright ears, shaggy coat (in black, brindle or wheaten) and adorable “beard.”

The Scottie’s unique appearance is coupled with a bold, dignified personality. Obedience training is a must to ensure you have a well-behaved pup. You’ll find he can be reserved at times and very spirited in other instances.
