Scottish Terrier

Scottish Terrier


Height: 10 inches

Weight: 18-22 lbs.

Life Span: 12-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
Scotties are self-assured, spunky, fearless, and independent. They require early socialization and ongoing obedience training.

They are devoted to their families and get along with children if exposed to them at an early age. Some, however, can be snappish and irritable at times, so they may not be the best choice for a family with young children. They may be aggressive with other animals, including cats and dogs, if not raised with them.

They bark a lot and are natural watchdogs. Scotties can live anywhere as long as they are given daily exercise. They must be limited to safe, enclosed areas when off-leash, as they are likely to chase small animals.

Appearance
The Scottie's eyebrows are long, its beard ample. Its weather-resistant coat is hard and wiry with a soft and dense undercoat. The coat color is black, sandy, wheaten, steel or iron gray, brindled or grizzled. A small amount of white may appear on the chest and chin.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Scotties need to be brushed one to two times a week and trimmed every three months. They need several brisk walks and daily playtime with their owners.

Origins
This compact, sturdily built dog originated in the 19th century in the Scottish Highlands, where it was used to hunt vermin.

Breed-related health concerns: von Willebrand's disease (a common disorder that causes excessive bleeding during or after surgery), craniomandibular osteopathy (a bone disease causing excessive growth of head bones in young dogs), allergies, lymphoma, Scottie cramp (a disorder appearing at around one year characterized by muscle stiffness when the dog is excited), elbow dysplasia, intervertebral disc protrusion.
