Breed traits of the Scottish Terrier
Many lovers of Scottish Terriers believe that this is the oldest and most pure of any Terrier, and that all others are offshoots of the Scottie. Look for a Scottie with a small, compact, short-legged body with good bone and substance. His head is long in proportion to his size. He has a hard, wiry, weather-resistant coat and a thick-set, cobby body. Those characteristics and the very special keen, piercing expression, erect ears and tail give the Scottie a bold, dignified look in a small, confident package.
Our males are wonderful examples of that well-balanced Scottish Terrier dog. Independent and fearless. The Scottish Terrier is best known as a black dog, however wheaten or brindle of any color is allowed. They can also have white on the chest or chin, but only a slight amount.
