Overview
The Scottish Terrier originated in Scotland and is considered to be the most ancient of any Highland Terrier. They are curious and playful, small and muscular. The Scottie makes a good companion for the right family. They have a compact and sturdy build.
Character
The Scottish Terrier exudes a bold and dignified manner. They do not give their love and devotion freely. This breed will typically watch their surroundings and those around them before making any decisions regarding them. The Scottie is extremely smart and independent.
Temperament
The Scottish Terrier will go anywhere and do anything. They have a dominant personality and a tendency to be territorial. The Scottie may show aggression to other dogs and cats if they are not socialized properly at an early age. They are good watchdogs and will not bark without good reason. They are not tolerant of unruly and rambunctious young children.
Care
The Scottish Terrier requires brushing twice weekly to keep the coat tangle free. They do require grooming and trimming to keep their distinctive look. The Scottie is highly prone to cancer of the bladder. They also may suffer from cataracts, hypothyroidism, and Von Willebrand Disease. This breed is especially sensitive to fleas and many have skin problems.
Coat
The Scottish Terrier's coat is coarse with a soft and dense undercoat that provides protection from bad weather. The outer hair coat is hard and wiry and grows to approximately 2 inches in length. This breed is low shedding. The Scottie is most often black in color, but the coat may also be brindle, gray, sandy, and wheaten. They are never white.
Training
The Scottish Terrier does best with very early socialization training to avoid aggression to other dogs' as they get older. Their strong independence presents a training challenge. The Scottie can be stubborn, so motivation, consistency, and positive praise are a must. They do very well in obedience and agility if the proper training techniques are utilized.
Activity
The Scottish Terrier is always ready for an adventure and activity. They require long walks, stimulation, and play. The Scottie does not do well in extremely warm climates. They love to play ball and derive great pleasure from playing fetch. They do well in apartment living provided they are exercised appropriately. The Scottie will become bored and destructive if they do not receive stimulation and exercise and may dig and bark excessively.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Scottish Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

When do scottish terriers get their full set of adult teeth. We bought a scottish terrier pup and were told she is about 5 months old. She has a full set of adult teeth, weighs 11 1/2 lbs. they told us she is 5 months old an put that on the AKC papers. They also said she was a better pick because she has a long body and would be less likely to have a ceascerian section when we breed her. She seems very frightened but they said she was so laid back at the time of our purchase because she is female. We took her to a vet within the 72 hour period required. She was very constipated and required xrays. She cost an $130 in addition to her purchase price of $600. They also said since she was a puppy she had been on a variety of dog foods and I need not worry about changing dog food. These people are members of a breeding club. Please help.

There isn't really a question in your question. Your vet is the only one that can help you in this situation. If there is something wrong with the pup, then a good breeder will refund you. Scottish Terrier's should have their adult teeth by 6 months.

how often does a scottish terrier pup need worming

A pup should be worked every 2 weeks until they are 14 weeks old. Then once a month until the pup is 6 months old. Then not unless your vet recommends it.

No, he is a good weight. It is better that your dog is at the lower end of the weight scale.

When I initially picked her up, I didn't realize she was a scotty. Her coat was dirty, long and matted. Her nails were long and she was thin. It wasn't really until I cleaned her up that I realized what breed she was. She did not have a collar and had not been chipped. I never could find where she had come from. So she became my best friend. She has been the best dog. She is so smart and will play ball all day long. She goes everywhere with me. My question is...is there anyway of telling how old she is? She has very bright white teeth. She is very active. She has a soft jet black coat. She does have a few gray hairs down her back and around her mozzle, not alot. She has come into heat. Any comments would be appreciated.

I would take your Scottie to a specialized vet. My scottie did the same thing so I took her to the ER vet and he had pulmonary hypertension. She was in the hosp. for 9 days on oxygen. He only lived for 3 weeks after that. I miss him so much. Count how many breathes he takes when he is panting it should be between 17 and 20. When I got my baby to the vet he was at 134 and when he came home he was at 30 to 35. Good luck I hope you can catch it early.

My Scottie pup (5 months) has a wonderful tail but rarely keeps it erect when we're at the park... My Scottie pup (5 months) has a wonderful tail but rarely keeps it erect when we're at the park where there are other, more dominant (and older) dogs. I understand that, among dogs, the tail is used to signal the dog's place in the hiearachy, but I've also read that Scotties' tail default position should be the erect one, while if I had to I'd say his default position is the horizontal one (he is calm but not a fearful puppy); he is a show prospect, do I have a problem?

Your Scottie's tail position indicates he is comfortable in his surroundings. Tucked down would indicate fear/discomfort. An erect tail can be a sign of feeling either energetic or aggressive. I think it means that you have a Scottie you can trust around other dogs. My experience with Scotties is not in the show ring. Someone else would have to answer to that, but I would imagine it would simply be part of training for the ring. Your Scottie can differentiate between "chillin' at the park" and "showing off in the ring."
