Scottish Terrier breed statistics

The hallmark of the Scotland Terrier is his wiry coat and distinctive eyebrows and beard. Small (18 to 22 pounds) yet strong, the Scottie is spirited and playful yet a gentle and loving family member. Bred to kill farm vermin, the Scottie, as the AKC notes, is “naturally a digger.”
