Scottish Terrier


The Scottish Terrier

Scottish terrier is breed of short-legged terrier perfected in Scotland in the middle of the 19th century. It stands about 10 in. (25 cm) high at the shoulder and weighs from 18 to 22 lb (8.2–10.0 kg). Its dense, hard, wiry coat is about 2 in. (5 cm) long and may be steel gray, brindle, grizzle, black, sandy, or wheaten in color. A very strong dog for its size, the scottie was originally used to hunt small game, particularly badgers. Today it is raised chiefly as a family pet.
