The Scottish Terrier (also called the Scotty, Scottie, and the Aberdeen Terrier) is a bold, alert, robust, fearless and loyal dog. A working dog, it was originally bred in Great Britain to hunt foxes and badgers. Three US presidents, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and George W. Bush had Scotty dogs as pets while they were in the White House.

Anatomy: The Scottish Terrier is about 10 inches (about 25 cm) high at shoulders, and weighs 20 to 21 pounds (9-10 kg). This small dog has a wiry outer coat and a dense inner coat; the fur is black, wheat, red, or mixed. A very long skull gives this terrier a distinctive look.
