Introduction

If you look in the dictionary of stubborn, you might see a picture of a Scottish Terrier. A brave, spirited, and loyal dog, the Scottish Terrier has stolen the hearts of many. Adorable as puppies, handsome as adults, this breed is good with children and a great watch dog. They make excellent family pets and can be a bit stand-offish with strangers until they get to know and trust them. Like most terriers, they have a stubborn streak that runs deep but that's really just part of their charm. He is also extremely sensitive to praise. If you're looking for a dog to go jogging with you, this might not be the one, but if you want a loyal companion, loving friend, a dog with heart, then a Scottie may be perfect for you.

Scottish Terrier Dog Name Considerations

So you've decided you want to adopt a Scottish Terrier. The next question is, what will you name him? If he looks like many of his cousins he is most commonly black but these little guys also come in wheaten, brindle, or silver, so you might consider names respecting those colors. There are personality traits to consider as well. Scotties are well known for their stubbornness and determination so you might take that into consideration.

These short-legged dogs are great at hunting out vermin and love to dig holes. They are fairly high energy and like to be active.Adults appear to be very dignified thanks to their long faces, beards, and eyebrows. They are not yappy like many other small dogs but instead have a big, loud bark that they  use to alert, though it is deep enough to scare off a burglar. 

Some owners like to pay respect to their dog's heritage so a Scottish name is always appropriate. Angus or Bonnie or Mac are frequently chosen as names for Scotties as well as many other names of Scottish descent. Whatever you decide to name your new dog, we're sure you'll both be happy with it.
