Scottish Terrier

This sturdy little dog has short legs and the way it is groomed makes them look even shorter. Even so, it is a strong, active animal and surprisingly agile. The coat is compact, course, and hard as bristles with a soft undercoat that protects it thoroughly from bad weather. It comes in black, wheaten, or brindle of any color.  Sharply pricked ears give the Scottish Terrier a thoughtful look. It has a large nose and large teeth, and there is a stop between the skull and the muzzle. Its dark eyes are almond-shaped, and its neck is muscular. Its tail is medium-length, carried straight or slightly curved. Their small, almond-shaped dark brown to almost black eyes are positioned wide apart in under the brow bone. The small, pointed ears set far up on the skull define the alert and intelligent expression of the Scottish terrier breed. The thick, short and muscular neck blends evenly into laid back shoulders.
