Scottish Terrier


General information

  • Common roots with Cairn and Skye Terriers, but be careful about suggesting that these were the ancestors or a rebuke may follow. One of the first Scottish breeds to reach the show ring.
  • A loyal dog to his master, a fierce defender of his honour and an indifferent attitude to strangers, makes this a popular house dog.
