The Scottish terrier dog breed originated in Scotland. It was originally bred for hunting down rodents. It has a very hardy character that has earned it the nickname 'Diehard'. Also known as 'Aberdeen Terrier' or 'Scotty', the breed shot to fame when one dog was adopted as a pet by the U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt. In 1885, the American Kennel Club registered it as an official breed.
The Scottish terrier is a small, compact dog that is sturdy and has substance. Its coat is hard, wiry, and water-resistant. It is an alert and spirited breed. As all terrier types, it is determined and thoughtful. This dog has a stable temperament and is loving and gentle. It tends to be a bit moody, as one minute you will find an enthusiastic dog running about and the next, a grumpy-faced one. It is a bit stubborn and likes to test the patience of the owner. It needs moderate grooming, and the coat needs to be brushed once or twice a week. You need to be firm during training as this stubborn breed will not follow all dog obedience rules. It likes to please its owner, but you can never be sure of the moody temperament. On the whole, this breed makes for delightful pets and you will enjoy every moment.
