Scottish Terriers are short-legged dogs, at a height of ten to eleven inches, comparatively heavy-boned, yet deceivingly trim. They are agile and sporty pets. Moreover, their intelligence, playfulness and loyalty make them popular pets.
Historically, they were the first standard for their breed, back in 1880. So even today, when someone says Terrier, what comes to mind is the Scottish Terrier.
This breed originated in Scotland and is ubiquitously recognized as an icon of the Scottish Culture. Still, even if they have long history, it was only in the 1800s, that their history began to be recorded. Many Scottish Terrier owners insist that all other terriers share a common ancestor in the Scottish Terrier dog.
They were originally bred to hunt foxes and badgers. Although for many Americans, their first sight of a Scottish Terrier was through President Roosevelt's pet, Fala, this breed had been in the country since the late 18th century. In fact, the first registered Scottie America was ''Dake'' born Sept. 15, 1884.
Physically the average Scottish Terrier weighs 19-23 pounds in adulthood and lives a life span of 12-15 years. They come in most any shades and colors such as black, wheaten, or brown. They don't shed a lot of hair. Ideally, you should comb and evenly trim his coat regularly to keep the coat neat and shiny.
How does one take good care of a Scottish Terrier dog? Not to worry, they may be sporty; yet don't require a lot of exercise. You can keep your Scottish Terrier dog indoors, provided you ensure it gets sufficient walking exercises during the day. If you have a small yard, and it is well secured, then let your dog loose. He'll be sure to get his optimum requirement by playing in the yard. As pets, they are better pets for older and more mature children.
You should follow the basics for taking care of Scottish Terrier dogs. They are, however susceptible to the following diseases such as Canine von Willebrand's disease, Scottie Cramp, flea allergy, intervertebral disc diseases, as well as other disorders.
A sage advice for those wanting to join the ranks of Scottish Terriers Dogs owners: give your pet affection and praise. You'll get it back from your pet, manifold.
