The Scottish Terrier, popularly known as the Scottie, is instantly recognizable for his wiry coat, beard and sturdy little body. Bred to hunt vermin, the breed shares a lot of traits with other terriers, including a love of digging and the chase. Your Scottish Terrier puppy has a naturally bold and confident nature. Obedience training, playtime and lots of exercise (on a leash or in a fenced area) will bring out his best traits. Teach your Scottish Terrier good manners from puppyhood and you'll be rewarded with a gentle, loving and always endearing canine friend.
