Developed in Scotland around the 1700's, then known as the Aberdeen Terrier.
The breed as we know it today dates to the late 1800's. Seldom now used for
hunting of fox, badger or rabbits. He is the ideal companion dog. A sturdy thick set
dog on short legs, shows power and activity. A dignified sort he is sensitive to
criticism (so watch what you say to him/her).
The head appears long. He is loyal and devoted to the family but obedience is not
his strong POINT. The coat is close lying, harsh on top with an undercoat. The tail
is undocked. His colors can come in black, wheaten or brindle of any shade.
