Breeds

Scottish Terrier


Scottish Terrier The Scottish Terrier breed is well known for its unique and well-known profile and die-hard spirit. Though small they are resilient. The Scottish Terrier's Behavior Source: AKC, Breeds of Dogs (www.thebreedsofdogs.com/SCOTTISH_TERRIER.htm) Recommended for: pet, working dog The Scottish Terrier dog breed carries the terrier traits--quick, alert, and feisty--to extremes. Yet on the whole the breed tends to be stable and steady-going. They exude ruggedness and power. These qualities make Scottish Terriers an ideal watchdog and vermin hunter but if untrained, this will lead to other smaller animals being attacked and people being bitten. But if properly housebroken and taught, their great character and loyalty will shine. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
