Scottish Terrier

Breed: Scottish Terrier Find Litters

The Scottish Terrier, otherwise known as the Scottie, is a breed of dog originating in Scotland. Scottish terriers are small, fearless dogs with lots of personality. They have very short legs so do not require excessive exercise, but they are excellent walking companions. They are not suitable for some families as they are not recommended for homes with young children.

Two genetic health concerns affecting the breed are von Willebrand disease and Craniomandibular osteopathy.
