There are 2 problems with this - 1) Scottish terriers are built for life in the british isles, where it is cold and wet half of the year or more - a scottie, especially one with dark fur, would totally roast outside in a Texas summer.
2) Scotties are not a breed which can live outside, away from the family pack. The dog will quickly become depressed and express bad behavior. If you want a dog that will do well living outside all the time, a scottie is NOT for you.
