About this Breed

The Scottish Terrier, also known as the Aberdeen Terrier, is a strong and sturdy breed of little dog that is often called just the Scottie. He has a distinctive and unique shape and profile, which the dog is known for. He is one of five different breeds of terrier that came from Scotland, with the other four being Skye, Cairn, Dandie Dinmont and West Highland Whiter Terriers. George the fourth, the Earl of Dumbarton gave them the nickname, little diehard" in the 19th century because of their bravery and perseverance. The Scottish Terrier is a small and resilient dog with short legs that can move exceptionally fast. They have a muscular neck and body, short sturdy legs, which all contributes to their great strength and agility. They are great diggers with their large paws. Their small eyes are dark brown or black and almond shaped. A large nose, very alert erect ears and large teeth help make up the rest of the face. The Scottish Terrier loves to dig, and there is no fence they can't dig their way out of if they set their mind to it. They will need you to constantly discipline them for this, being firm but loving. Because of their breeding, they will chase other small animals if given the chance, so they should always be on the leash. If you are planning on purchasing a Scottish Terrier from a breeder or pet store, it is a good idea to make sure the dog or puppy has been tested for von Willibrands disease, a genetic jaw problem that strikes many of these little animals of this breed. The Scottish Terrier is such a popular dog that they have been owned by 2 different presidents of the United States. Franklin D. Roosevelt owned 2 different Scottish Terriers and George Bush also owned one. There is also a Monopoly token that was made after the Scottish Terrier and is everyone's favorite piece. The Scottish Terrier was the famous dog 'Jock' in the Disney movie, Lady and the Tramp. In 2007, Carnegie Mellon University named the Scottish Terrier their official mascot.
