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.

This breed is lively, proud, and intelligent. It is charming and full of character. It makes a very good watchdog. It doesn’t welcome interlopers and has no interest in anyone outside its own family. It is good with children, but does best with older considerate children. It gets along with other household pets if properly socialized. The Scottish Terrier, while loving and gentle with people, can be aggressive with other dogs. It loves to play ball games, and is thoroughly sporty, enjoys walks, and likes to bark. It is home loving and independent. It will happily accompany you for a walk or play session in the park, and delights in fetching sticks and balls. This dog has a tendency to wander.
