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.

Does your dog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

New dog owners, much like new parents, often have trouble deciding when it is necessary to seek medical attention for their dog or new puppy. The most basic rule of thumb is, if your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet. When is it time to see the Vet?
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Scottish Terrier puppy. However, if you’re looking for not just a housebreaking method, but are also interested in adapting your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons, crate training is for you.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy. You can help your pup learn to be friendly by properly socializing him/her to new people, places, and experiences.
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. Even the most responsible puppy owner makes mistakes. Read up on these 15 common dog owner mistakes. Sometimes it just takes changing your own behavior to make your dog a little angel.

We have a Scottish Terrier puppy, she was born on 11/12/14 and weighs 5lbs. She seems quite small for her age but otherwise healthy and playful. Do you think this is normal?

She does seem quite small for her age. I would make sure you take her to the vet and have her dewormed as she may not be getting the nutrition she needs. As well, make sure she is on a high quality grain-free puppy food for optimal growth.

I had a Scottish Terrier (my best friend) and I just lost him to pulmonary hypertension and, I was and am, devastated. I was wondering if this was common to this breed.

I'm sorry for your loss. The loss of a beloved pet is very hard. As for the breed standard, Pulmonary Hypertension is not one of the more common issues Scottish Terriers can get, but it is also not unheard of. Breeding practices and genetics are ways of ruling out the possibility of that issue happening in the breeder's lines.

When do Scottish Terriers get their full set of adult teeth? We bought a Scottish Terrier puppy 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 and 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 caesarian 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 x-rays. She cost $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 Terriers should have their adult teeth by 6 months.

How often does a Scottish Terrier puppy need worming?

A pup should be wormed 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.
