The Scottish Terrier is the best known and possibly oldest of the Highland terriers. It has a compact, strong body; short legs, pricked ears and naturally erect tail. Its face should wear a keen, sharp and active expression. It is a strong, active and surprisingly agile dog. The Scottish Terrier was used to hunt den animals, particularly otter, fox, badger and rabbit. Today this stylish breed is primarily a companion, though it still retains its hunting instincts. President Roosevelt had a Scottish Terrier named Fala in the White House.


Black, wheaten or brindle of any shade.


Sharp, dense and wiry with a short, dense, soft undercoat. Regular brushing of the harsh wiry coat is important and extra care should be taken when the dog is shedding. Bathe or dry shampoo as necessary. This dog should be professionally trimmed twice a year. This breed sheds little to no hair.

Health Issues:

Some are prone to Scottie Cramp (a movement problem), Von Willebrand's disease, flea allergy, skin, and jaw problems. This breed is a difficult whelper. To minimize the risk of your Scottie developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable breeder.
