History of the Scottish Terrier
Developed in the 1700s, the Scottish Terrier (or Scottie) was originally known as the Aberdeen Terrier after the Scottish town of the same name. Closely related to the Cairn Terrier and West Highland White Terriers, these three dogs were in fact once classified under the heading of ‘Skye terriers’ along with what would become the breed of the same name. They would not receive individual recognition by the Kennel Club (KC) until 1930.
