A sturdy breed with a regal profile, the short-legged Scottish Terrier is widely considered a big dog in a small dog's body.
Lifespan: 10–12 yr
Height: 10–11 in

An outstanding feature of the Scottie is its double coat, which requires regular grooming. Baths are only occasionally needed—unless your dog gets particularly dirty. Regular nail trimming and dental care should also be a part of your Scottish Terrier's grooming routine.

To be happy, Scotties require lots of physical exercise. They are very playful, like to bark and dig, and appreciate anything that keeps them busy and active—whether it's a brisk walk, chasing a ball, or playing games. Because of their high energy levels, Scottish Terriers excel at dog sports, such as earthdog trials, agility, and tracking.
