Scotties are territorial, alert, quick moving and feisty, perhaps even more so than other terrier breeds. The
breed is known to be independent and self-assured, playful, intelligent and has been nicknamed the
'Diehard' because of its rugged nature and endless determination. The 'Diehard' nickname was originally
given to it in the 19th century by George, the fourth Earl of Dumbarton. The Earl had a famous pack of
Scottish Terriers, so brave that they were named “Diehards”. They were supposed to have inspired the
name of his Regiment, The Royal Scots, "Dumbarton’s Diehards".
Scotties, while being described as very loving, have also been described as stubborn. They are sometimes
described as an aloof breed, although it has been noted that they tend to be very loyal to their family and
are known to attach themselves to one or two people.
It has been suggested that the Scottish Terrier can make a good watchdog due to its tendency to bark only
when necessary and because it is typically reserved with strangers, although this is not always the case.
They have been described as a fearless breed that may be aggressive around other dogs unless
introduced at an early age. Scottish Terriers were originally bred to hunt and fight badgers. Therefore, the
Scottie is prone to dig as well as chase small vermin, such as Squirrels, rats, and mice.
