Scottish Terriers are a breed of dog best known for their distinctive profile and their die-hard spirit.


A Scottish Terrier, or Scottie, is a small but resilient terrier. Scotties are fast and have a muscular body, often appearing to be barrel chested. Its traditional grooming is shaggy-to-the-ground. The usual coat color ranges from dark gray to jet black. Scotties with Wheaten (straw to nearly white) coats sometimes occur, but should not be confused with the Wheaten Terrier or West Highland White Terrier.


They were originally bred in Scotland (their first name was the Aberdeen Terrier) about 1700, but had achieved their final size and shape by 1890. Scotties are natural "diggers", like other terriers, whose name derives from the same root as "terre", French for "earth". Their nickname is "little diehard" from James III of England, the King descended from the Scottish line.
