THE Scottish Terrier has a confident look, is stubborn, cold and arrogant. He is brave, independent and, although he is not a model of obedience, he knows exactly where the limits are. Faithful and attached to the owner, despite his arrogance, he is also playful, mischievous and amusing. He is well adapted to life inside and outside the home.


It has stubby and short legs. Their ears are long, pointed and straight. It has a medium-length, straight or slightly curved tail. The hair is rough, dense, hard and black, dark or brindle of any color.
