Scottie Info...


Most folks can tell a Scottie just by looking - and they're usually depicted with a Scottish burr in the cartoons that portray them, or draped in plaid to show their heritage. In real life, they are active and affectionate dogs who are devoted to the people that love them.

  • "Scottish Terriers are a big dog personality in a small package, loyal, courageous. energetic, non-shedding companions looking to own a family."

  • "They can be stubborn and independent, but also very sensitive."

  • "Scottish terriers love adventure and they need exercise."

Living Area           Scotties are a good indoor dog that

                                 also enjoys playing outdoors. They

                                 can survive very well in a small

                                 apartment.  They prefer cooler

                                 temperatures, but can adapt

                                 almost anywhere.   Scotties have

                                 a weather-resistant outer coat that

                                 gives them protection in diverse

                                 weather conditions.
