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.

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.
