Scottish Terrier

From Dog

The Scottish Terrier breed is one of the descendants of the old Scotch Terrier, along with the Dandie Dinmont, the Cairn, and the West Highland White Terrier.

The low stature and wiry coat have always been important characteristics relating to the original purpose of the breed, which was to hunt and kill the various species of wildlife such as the fox, badger, weasel, and rat that made life hard for the early Scottish farmers and crofters.

Scottish Terriers live up to 12 years of age.
