Developed in Scotland in 1700, then known as the Aberdeen terrier, the breed as we know it today dates to the late 1800's. Seldom now used for the hunting of fox, badger or rabbits, he is the ideal companion. A Sturdy thick set dog on short legs, shows power and activity. A dignified sort he is sensitive to criticism. Head appears long. He is loyal and devoted to the family but obedience not his strong point. The coat is close lying, harsh on top with an undercoat. the tail is undocked.
Colours are black, wheaten or brindle of any shade.

History


Most of the following is taken from "Stonehenge" and Robert Leighton's "The Dog"
Much argument went on about the beginnings of this breed but one thing is sure, and that is the use of the Aberdeen terrier as a 'base'. The Aberdeen was a small long, low dog with a snippy face, prick or drop ears, and harsh short coat, colours were brindle, black and sandy. He was very game, lively as a cricket and had a charming temperament.
A Sir Paynton Piggot, MVO (The Badger) had a strong kennel of Scottish Terriers in England He thought he had the correct type and Captain Gordon Murray (Strathbogie) who was just as adamant that his version was correct (he did not like long coats or the sandy colour). Some breeders had dogs 10 inch inch coats) A compromise was reached by the President of the Kennel Club Mr S.E Shirley and he put on classes for the breed at Alexandra Palace between 1877 and 1879.

This breed has certainly changed over the years, coat and stripping being of huge importance now, in showing. Hopefully the shape underneath is not as exaggerated.
