The Scottie's physical appearance gives the impression of power. He is very square and solidly built, often referred to as a big dog in a small package. He has a short outer-coat that is hard and wiry and a dense, soft undercoat. His hair is longer on the muzzle and over the eyes, forming a beard and eyebrows. His colours are either grey, brindle, black or wheaten. His coat is non-shedding and quite often will not trigger allergic reactions for those who suffer from allergies.

The Scottish Terrier is a very independent, assertive, and confident dog, and can have a stubborn and very willful streak. These bold and determined dogs can make good pets and companions, but need a confident and assertive owner, so are best suited to those with some experience of dog ownership and training. Those with little experience may find training the Scottish Terrier very challenging, and may soon find that the little dog quickly takes charge. Housebreaking can also be difficult with particularly stubborn Scottish Terriers. These small dogs have plenty of energy and spirit, and exercises enthusiasm in everything that he does - proving he wants to do it. The Scottish Terrier is a very loyal dog, and their alert and protective nature makes them effective watchdogs. Some Scottish Terriers can be very possessive of their food and belongings, and many love to bark and dig. Their tendency to chase and wander off, coupled with their naturally inquisitive nature, means that a safe and secured play and exercise area is essential.

The Scottish Terrier gets along well with children that are older, gentle, and will not pester him. He is not particularly sociable around strangers, and tends to be wary around them, which adds to his watchdog abilities. He may not get along well with other dogs, and needs early socialization with other pets. Early socialization with people is also recommended to promote a stable and sociable attitude. These dogs have a certain dignity about them, and can be very haughty and offended if they consider themselves to have been treated roughly or unfairly. Daily walks, interactive play, and a safe place to potter around will ensure that the Scottish Terrier gets his exercise and does not get bored.

The Scottish Terrier was once known as the Aberdeen Terrier, and originates from Scotland. One of the oldest terrier breeds, these dogs were bred to hunt vermin and foxes, and have gone on to become very popular household pets. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1885.
If you are considering a Scottish Terrier puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
