The Scottish Terrier, or Aberdeen Terrier, was also known by the name “Child of Scotland.” The history of the origin of the dog is not entirely clear and vague. It is only known that the Scottish Terrier was recognized as a breed in 1882. Despite its small size, this dog is very strong. She also took part in the filming of W. Disney’s The Lady and the Tramp, immortalizing the image of a gentleman there. It is also known that President Roosevelt kept a Scottish Terrier.
An energetic and intelligent dog. The head is long, wedge-shaped. Thick eyebrows and powerful jaws. Small ears and a big nose. Muscular, compact, strong limbs, slightly curved tail. The body is covered with tough, thick, silky hair. The hair on the torso is so long that it reaches the ground. The color is black, light brown, red with brown, wheat, etc.
The Scottish Terrier should be lively and perky, but balanced and solid. This is a resolute and thoughtful dog, whose “head is higher, the tail is higher!” the attitude to the ring should express both passion and self-control. Gentle and loving with people, the Scottish Terrier can be aggressive with other dogs. He spreads around himself harsh stamina and strength, embodied in his nickname “Diehard” – stubborn.
