Many popular breeds of terriers
originate from Scotland and the Scottish Terrier is likely
the most notable of them all. Although the Scottish Terrier
is relatively small it has a very muscular body and can run
quickly when necessary. A full-grown Scottish Terrier usually
weighs approximately 20 pounds.
These terriers have a lot of energy which is one of the reasons
they are so popular. Despite their small size, the Scottish
Terrier is known for being a stubborn dog. To avoid this behaviour
it is important to be firm with them from an early age, otherwise
it is difficult or impossible to correct this behavior afterwards
when they are full-grown.
