Puppy Watch

Scottish Terrier

The Scottish Terrier originated in the Scottish Highlands. It is a small, wiry haired dog and a bit bigger than your usual Toy breed dog. Scottie is always alert and wary of strangers by nature which makes him a good watchdog. Ever alert, they will watch everything that is going on, and of course want to take part. By nature they are a happy, easy going that loves nothing better than accompanying their owners anywhere. Scotties are energetic and inquisitive, and this innate curiosity means they will investigate everything.

"...I have a little Scottie that has personality and then some. Although he is generally a quiet dog, he will always let us know what he wants by "talking." He is also very good at staying home by himself ­p; we've never come home to anything ripped apart. This is mostly due to the ample toys that he has..."  All Reviews [...]
