The Scottish terrier (or Scottish terrier) is a breed of dog well known for its ruffled coat and its fiery and decisive temperament. His traditional nickname is "Scottie".
A breed originating in Scotland, descended from the ancestors of the Aberdeen Terrier, its physical evolution was completed at the very end of the 19th century. The breed became very popular in France at the end of the 1920s, following the drawings of Pol Rab who created funny stories of the fox terrier Ric and his companion Rac, a terrier from Scotland.
The Scottish terrier is a worthy member of the terrier family. Like the latter, and despite its relative smallness, the Scottish terrier has a strong and determined personality. He will choose, quite quickly, a master in his adopted household, obeying the other members of the family only when he deems it appropriate. Unless raised at the same time as them, he is a very combative dog with his congeners and very aggressive with cats.
