The Scottish Terrier, popularly known as the Scottie, is instantly recognizable for his wiry coat, beard and sturdy little body. Bred to hunt vermin, the breed shares a lot of traits with other terriers, including a love of digging and the chase. Your Scottish Terrier puppy has a naturally bold and confident nature. Obedience training, playtime and lots of exercise (on a leash or in a fenced area) will bring out his best traits. Teach your Scottish Terrier good manners from puppyhood and you'll be rewarded with a gentle, loving and always endearing canine friend.

Breed Standard for Scottish Terriers

The West Highland White Terrier, or Westie's, small size and irresistibly adorable appearance belie his tough, independent terrier personality. As a family pet, he's affectionate, playful, endlessly entertaining and a wonderful portable travel companion. Bred to hunt rats, he'll take off after prey, so he needs a fenced area to play and walks on a leash. Westie puppies need patient training, due to their independent nature. But they learn easily and are lovable, loyal additions to any family.
