The Scottish Terrier is a well-known race of dog by its characteristic profile and its great loyalty. They were bred originally in Scotland (its original name was the one of Aberdeen Terrier) at the beginning of century XVIII, but they had reached its size and forms end before 1890. The Scotties is “natural diggers”, like others terriers, whose name derives from the same root that “terre,” French for the “earth”. The Scotties was bred originally to look for tejones in mountains of Scotland. They raised also them with the strong tails so that their owners could throw of them to remove to their dogs from the dug holes.
