    About Scottish Terriers

    The Scottish Terrier is a compact, short-legged, sturdy dog that was bred in Scotland to be a fierce hunter of foxes and badgers. The Scotties' black coats, long heads and beards make them an easily recognizable breed. Scotties make excellent companions and watchdogs.
