The Scottish Terrier was developed in Scotland in the 1700s.
The breed was first called the Aberdeen Terrier, after the Scottish town of Aberdeen. George, the fourth Earl of Dumbarton nicknamed the dogs "little diehard" in the 19th century.
When Scotch Terriers were first discussed in print, it was noted there were two distinct types â

Brave, alert and feisty.
Playful and dignified.
A good watchdog.
Can be stubborn.
Needs firm, gentle handling from early on or will dominate the household.
Sensitive to correction, so be firm, gentle and confident and consistent.
Will establish themselves as the leader of the household if allowed.
A big dog in a small dog's body.
Make good house pets.
Can be moody, snappish, stubborn, protective and develop obsessive barking traits.
Not great with small children.

Good in apartment lifestyles.
Prefers cool climates.
